I had booked using some loyalty points for 2 nights over the August Bank Holiday weekend and did not have great expectations following some of the reviews I had read.
We arived and were warmly greeted at reception and were immediately checked in. Other guests were waitng for available rooms but ours was ready. It was a lovely room and had I think been recently refurbished. My only comment on it was that it was opposite the lift lobby so we could hear in the mornings people (mostly young children) on their way to breakfast but this was not really an issue.
We were pleasantly surprised also to receive in our room a birthday card and 2 free drinks vouchers for my hisband's birthday - a lovely touch!
We took advantage of the discounted breakfast vouchers at reception - £9.95 each instead of £14 if purchased in the restaurant. The breakfast was actually good quality - and I travel a lot both in the UK and across the World for work so feel I am qualified to judge - as my waistline also shows, I have a lot of hotel breakfasts. The choice was good and the food was fresh and replenished frequently.
All staff we encountered were helpful and friendly and this was appreciated.
The Hilton is also situated in a good location - the sea view from our bedroom was lovely, and walking that bit out from the town centre means you are not troubled by rowdy revellers.
All in all although I have stayed in posher Hiltons, I thought the one in Blackpool was good and had no complaints.
