Elgin Hotel Blackpool
Ranked #8 of 73 Hotels in Blackpool
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 18, 2011

Stayed 3 nights HB. A nice hotel on sea front. Not an easy quest in Blackpool. We go to Blackpool for short breaks a couple of times every year, and have sampled a selection of hotels over time. The Elgin we rate high on the list. A 2* rating puts some of them to shame. Upgraded to a sea view room, small but cosy with all in it you will need. Very comfortable bed. The creaking floor a bit annoying with me being an early riser. Good dining experience with excellent staff. Lounge and entertainment good. To be critical another selection of lagers & beer's would be nice. Hotel a bit out of town, but a good bus service stops nearby. Its a big prom' so the walk is enjoyable. No trouble with hotel free car parking.(tip) If you want a bus in opposite direction, go to rear of hotel and you will get an empty bus.

Room Tip: An upgrade is worthwhile

Just returned from a fantastic stay at the Elgin. We have been staying at the Hotel for the past 13 years, travelling with Elgin Tours from Belfast. The Hotel was spotlessly clean, the staff were helpful and friendly. The catering in the restaurant was exceptional, as I require a Gluten Free diet and i have not found anywhere else that caters for this to the extent that the Elgin does - Well done! We will most definitely be back and will recommend this tour to others.

Hi Alison
Many thanks for your kind comments - not least regarding the gluten free diet. We find these are being asked for more and more. I'm sorry I missed you this year - we took our holiday a week earlier due to our kids having various commitments. Hopefully will be here for your next visit. Please send our regards to our friends in Belfast.
Best Wishes
Nigel

Many thanks for your kind comments - our Sunday nights in July and August are just too good a deal! Really pleased that you liked your room. I note you only gave us 3 out of 5 for service - was anything wrong? If so please let me know.
Hoping to be able to welcome you back to the Elgin.
