Stayed here (heavily pregnant) during the illumination and Halloween long weekend 2013 and had a lovely time. The weather was awful but room was cosy warm. All staff were lovely and hard working. Breakfast was good with a decent cooked full English, lots of cakes, yoghurt, cereals and fruits to choose from also. We had a sea view room right above the entertainment area which did get loud but weeknights the music stopped at 11pm and it was quiet just after midnight at the weekend. The pillows are so comfortable we always slept well :)
No parking but there is a drop off area in front of the hotel so you don't need to walk far with your suitcase. Lots of pay parking nearby however we always managed to find a free space on the nearby streets.
Close (walking distance) to all Blackpool tourist attractions with a tram stop right opposite.
We can't wait to come back when our baby is older, we won't bother looking up other hotels as this one fits the bill for location, price, friendliness and food.
See you soon Balmoral hotel!
Definitely recommend this hotel
