The President Hotel
Ranked #60 of 73 Hotels in Blackpool
Reviewed July 16, 2013

I have stayed here a number of times and can not rate this hotel high enough, gtom ease of booking to checking out, everything in between is perfect, The reception area is very smart, the rooms i have stayed in on numerous occasions are well maintained and for blackpool is sufficient, after all it is only for sleeping, then the meals,.... they really are well cooked and excellent quality, Breakfast is plentiful, its not brought to you its buffet style as is the Evening Meal and plenty to choose from, The Staff are brilliant, Alex who I presume is the Man in charge of the restaurant is very helpful, then we move to the Evening Entertainment in a very relaxing and modern Caberet Room called Kennedy's Bar, and if you are Lucky enough to have Steph as your host for the evening your sure to have a great night... and if you are even luckier to have Tickety Boo to Entertain you thats even better,.. but if you are not then it will still be a really enjoyable stay... Car Parking is £5.00 a night but if you dont want to pay that or can not get it there is close by on street parking,... i write this with honesty and I always write the truth, I am not related to anyone at this hotel but over the years I have became friends with them Especially Steph who is now the Manager, Well done and well deserved Steph,... and a new addition to the staff is Gary....... he is an Asset to the hotel... well done all the staff of the New President Hotel Blackpool,.... We will be back. 4 Star Treatment in a 2 Star Hotel :)

Room Tip: Add them on Facebook and speak to them,... they will accomodate if possible

Stayed, Fri 12 to Mon15 July 2013, hotel has had money spent on refurbishment recently,
the recent reviews reflect my opinion that this hotel is an overlooked gem, food was of unbelievable quality, staff exceedingly helpful, requested and was given a room with sea view which was clean and tidy with a recently fully refurbished bathroom with shower, tv was dated but unused, i understand some rooms have new plasma tv's so they may still be updating , live entertainment was to a high standard. free Wi Fi. the bus and tram stops are just a few meters from the hotel entrance, handy for Fleetwood to the north or south to pleasure beach,
The New President was Blackpool hotel of the year 2004 and i felt i received the treatment in keeping with that award.

Stayed on 5 July for 2 nights and had an enjoyable weekend; the staff were pleasant, helpful and friendly. The room whilst basic was clean and tidy and the food good and plentiful served in buffet style and piping hot, they do offer an a la carte menu but we didn't have anything from there but from the standard of the buffet style I would imagine it is very good. I think the hotel must attract clientelle that return on on finding out that we were first time guests asked if we would come back and seemed pleased that someone else was enjoying the hospitality afforded by the hotel and yes I will definitely be returning.

i was there from 28/06/13 to 01/07/13 and had a terrible experience....reception so rude....and the staff so grumpy....as if i have taken debt from them and wont ever repay....no heating in the room..and when i asked to fox it...thrice.....i was asked...why do i need it.....

they charge money for everything...tv remote....toilet mat.....portable heater.....

the bedsheets are dirty and stained....slept without them and no one can bother to change....the cleaner will place the dirty towels again with the clean ones....

Food was okay and chef and kitchen staff were polite after the restaurant waiters rude behavior... one good thing is location...which is very near to the tourist attractions and tram stop

please be careful.....
