Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Superb. Very clean and modern finish to the building and bedrooms complemented by extremely helpful staff. Car parking facilities are excellent and very close to reception. The food in the restaurant was excellent too, and they are able to serve tasty portions of a range of dishes using high quality ingredients. The dishes range from thick cut chips, pork scratchings and speciality local pies to locally sourced lamb and chicken cooked in a more modern style. Cannot wait to come again or recommend it highly enough.

We chose this hotel because we are football fans but it doesn't matter if you aren't. The room was lovely as was the view of the pitch. The temperature was easy to regulate, the bed was very comfortable. Nice touch was the remote control DAB radio. I ordered room service in the evening and it arrived promptly and was presented well. I didn't think there was enough information in the room, eg breakfast times, location and opening hours of the gym, menu for the restaurant but as it is a new hotel I expect these will be rectified. Breakfast was very tasty, I would have preferred a pot of tea rather than a waiter coming round with a jug as it tasted a little stewed. Other than that we sat at a table overlooking the pitch which was good. All staff we came into contact with were very courtious and friendly. We also did the stadium tour which was excellent. Would definitely recommend this hotel, it is well situated, has its own car park (though you have a long walk around the ground if the ones near reception are taken) and excellent staff.

My wife and i have just spent three nights at the hotel, very modern luxury hotel. staff from manager down very freindly and helpfull. Food / resturant excellent
You do not require to be a football fan to stay at this hotel, all are welcome
Could not recommend a better hotel unless you wanted a swimming pool. this is the only reason i have not given it a five star rating.

Room Tip: we where located on first floor, all ok, resturant located on second floor

Hotel is in a good location,only about a 20 minute walk from the promenade,good value for money seen as though this place doesn't charge much more than the other hotels and guest houses,and this is a lot better as it has nice decor,good service all around and great facilites.
You aren't allowed to check in until 3pm,5pm I your room is facing the pitch,but they allow you to park your car before check in,we arrived at about 11.30 which I am glad we did as it was match day so the car park can get pretty busy,so we took the adore previously written on here and arrived hours before check in,we easily got a spot,but I am guessing if we arrived an hour or so later it may have been difficult. We had a look around the promenade,then checked in about 3.30pm,we were greeted and taken up the reception area to which we were given a key and taken to our room. The room was very clean and quite spacious with a massive tele mounted on the wall,you also have air con and central heating and you are supplied with an iron and an ironing board,and a hairdryer for the ladies. The blinds are blackout blinds,and the bed is really comfy! Nice bathroom facilities and a kettle along with tea and coffee etc.
You get a free breakfast which is between 7 and 10am,which is good also,it's all you can eat with a hot and cold menu,you can get tea and coffee and juice also,along with fruit. You have to check out at 11. They do serve evening meals but this doesn't start until 6pm.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this hotel and we couldn't fault it,and will stay here again,for all the people who have badly reviewed certain parts of this hotel you must be creating the problems yourselves and just must like to complain. I cannot fault this hotel. Thanks for a great stay!

Room Tip: If you wanna check in before 5pm and it's match day don't get a room what faces onto the pit...

We stayed in this Hotel for one night with a 1yr old to see the lights. The Hotel is very clean and tidy. The staff are great. Free parking right infront of reception. Breakfast was very good quality and excellent service. Short walk down to sea front. Couldn't fault a thing. Would stay again.

We stayed 1 night with our 6 year old daughter to visit the illuminations and had the most wonderful stay at this hotel. We were able to park right outside and everything about the hotel was great.
Our daughter had never seen the inside of a football ground before and kept looking out of our room window at the pitch and stadium, which was impressive.
The room was very clean with the most comfortable huge bed and a sofa bed ready made up for our daughter. The bathroom was spotless with lovely fluffy towels. The concierge (George I think his name was) couldn't do enough and carried our bags to our room, arranged a taxi for us and brought up more milk for our room. All other staff were very helpful and friendly.
Didn't eat in the restaurant as had already made a dinner resevation in town but the menu looked lovely however breakfast was great with plenty of choice and sat overlooking the pitch.
We would definately stay at the hotel again on out next visit.

Room Tip: Pitch view

Myself, husband, 2 children and mother in law have just returned from a 1 night stay at the hotel, from the moment we stepped into the hotel the staff were very helpful and wanted to help, especially with bags and showing us where to go. The rooms were very clean and modern and plenty of room for us all.

My husband and two boys are huge football fans so having a drink and eating breakfast looking out onto the football pitch, was just fantastic for them.

The staff in the bar and restaurant were very friendly and kept asking if we were ok and if we needed anything, they were willing to chat about the hotel too and were very enthusiastic about it.

We asked if one of the double rooms could be made into a twin and that was done with no problem.

We had travelled to Blackpool to celebrate my mother in laws 80th birthday, she loves Blackpool and football and she had such a wonderful time.

We have stayed in other hotels in Blackpool on previous trips but nothing compared to this and it will be our only stay from now on.
