2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

4 day visit to Blackpool to see the "Ulluminations" with a coach party, which was my first mistake.
Hotel looks tired, has 4 floors served by one elevator which carries 3 people, resulting in long waits. Meals are available for a period of 75 minutes - Breakfast and Dinner, despite the Hotel not being full there were more guests than tables in the restaurant. Meals are self service,again wait in a line. Food quality - average. My room was a double for single occupancy I found it very cramped, two people would be on top of each other.
My first experiance of a coach tour so it was cheap, hence my comment you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Front room have sea view

Stayed here one night and was glad we had not booked for any longer. when we first tried to enter the hotel the handle was broken, no shower just a bath with white residue in in the bottom. The toilet seat was hanging off. The people next door to us came home drunk and had lost their key and were arguing with each other outside our room for over one hour this woke our grandchildren up. The evening meal was very poor but breakfast was not too bad but you can't really get this wrong. Would never stay here again needs millions spent on it.

Room Tip: don't go

Booked a 4 night stay for me my wife an 2 kids,we were worried about all the bad coments as wee had paid in full! When we arrived we were shown our room which had a double bed and a single bed, we said the kids would need a bed each.We were up graded 2 a sea view room at no extra charge.The food was great and the staff where more than helpfull.the room was clean and tidy and we have stayed in four star hotels were the food was not as good as here.The only thing I would say is the hotel is not very. child friendly as it has a lot of older people staying an the entertainment was more for them,but overall had a good 4 days so don't believe all the bad coments. Graham family northern Ireland .

Room Tip: Sea view room for a family of 4 is really good.

We have just returned from a coach tour in Blackpool which stopped at the New President Hotel. The hotel was excellent. The room we were allocated had a sea view and was very comfortable and clean. We could not find any dust or dirt in the room whatsoever, we even ran our fingers along skirting boards and dado-rails, across top of the wardrobe and pictures etc. We also did this on the corridors. No dust or dirt was left on out fingers. The food was excellent and there was more than enough of it. All the staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble to them. The staff were always cheerful and smartly dressed. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for accommodation in Blackpool.

Having booked and paid for this break by phone 3 weeks before going and receiving comfirmation that l had a twin room when we arrived they gave us a double room, which really should have been a single room, no room at all to move about. Having asked for a room change, l was told there were no twin rooms available. According to the condition of hire ' On booking your holiday, you are entering into a legally binding cantract. All accommodation is offered subject to the availabilty at the time of receipt of the deposit being paid and the taffiff applicable according to season'. As l paid for this when a booked it , l should have been given a twin room. After waiting for a hour and a lot of arguments and me treating to take legal action and demanding my money back there and then,we were given a chose of twin rooms. The first room had a sea view and you could see the prom if you knelt on the bed that was pushed up against the wall. By this time my husband and l were fed up so we took this room. The room was small, with cracked floor in to bathroom and the bathroom window was broken. The window sills were dirty and the room smelt damp, especially at night sleeping against a wall. There was a note by the telephone telling us to go to reception in the event of an emergency as the direct phone line was not working, Very handy when you are on the 4th floor. The lift was a laugh, only held 2 people with luggage or 3 without. Alway had to wait a long time as restaurant was on first floor and every one trying to use lift at same time. The service in the restaurant was very poor. One morning we had to wait 15 minutes for a table, when we got our table l counted 11 tables that were empty but not cleared. The staff were so slow, any slower and they would had stopped. Not a great choice of food, but was passable. Plates often wet when you picked them up. Did not see any choice for vegetarians. Entertainment average, only did 2 spots of 30 minutes, spent too much time doing silly quizzes and playing bingo. In the advert that was in the paper, they advertised 'All inclusive cabaret weekends', this turn out to be a free bar from 5 - 7 every evening by payaing and extra £10pppn. As the meal times were 5.30 to 6.45pm each evening, this was not much of an offer.
All in all not that good value for money. If you wanted a remote control for the TV or a safety mat for the bath/shower, you had to pay a deposit. The bath was very dangerous to get in and out off as there was nothing to hold on to that felt safe, either glass half screen or towel rail, I was not the only one not happy with the service as when we booked in there were at least two other couples/families complaining. The only good thing about this hotel is the bus and tram stops right outside the door, at least you can get away easily.

Room Tip: Don't bother

Have been overnight here on a weekend coach break. Being a seaside hotel wasnt expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised. Decore was a bit dated but rooms were clean and beds comfortable. Shower room had been updated. Food very good and plentiful. Plenty of very polite and helpful staff. Would definately go again.
