“Would agree with other reviewers about the food!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Have stayed in the Boston on several occasions. The bedrooms have been refurbished and this has made a difference.

Dining and Bar staff are always friendly. Main problem with this hotel is the poor quality of the food. I've never seen a breakfast so small! One morning, my mum asked if I'd ordered a child's portion! But no, one sausage, one rasher of bacon, one fried egg (hard yolk!) and one small bit of fried bread is a standard breakfast! No beans!! Have never been in a Blackpool hotel where they didn't give you beans for breakfast. Also the salmon, arrived drowned in butter (i don't eat butter!) When I requested one without butter, I got a very dry piece of salmon!

And! Two things to beware of!
1) £10 deposit for travel cards for Blackpool Promotion Customers if you arrive on a Friday!
2) This hotel caters mainly for pensioners! When we were there, it was only myself, the couple sitting next to me and a girl in her late teens that were under 60!!! This is not a criticism but just to let you know!

Just back from spending 24th-28th September at the Boston hotel. Had a great time in the company of nice people. Staff could not do enough to assist those staying. Entertainment was excellent,the food was good especially the sausages L.O.L., cleanliness in general was good. Bar prices were reasonable for a hotel. Will return as made new friends.

We stayed in this Hotel 14th-17th Sept..Staff Were polite & helpful.Food was good..Sometimes during daytime bar was left unattended & took a while to get a drink ..Hotel states that it had 54 refurbished bedrooms...Beg to differ...we were on 1st floor & our room was definately in need of a refurb..We stayed for 4 days & never had towels changed in that time..Entertainment was good as was prize money in the bingo..All in all not too bad for the money we paid.

Where do I start, looking at the hotel from outside lovely.

Rooms- clean and good size for a family of 4. You get clean towels on arrival and as you do in most hotels you put dirty towels in bath or shower and get clean towels to replace the dirty ones. I asked housekeeper for new ones and as she said she would have to come and check our towels as if they weren't dirty and she had to send them down the manager gary would go off his head. anyway she changed one. SHOCKING!!!!!

Breakfast- was ok. NOTE TO HOTEL. you need beans or tomato with a breakfast as its toooooo dry.

Dinners- lovely. no complaints

entertainment- fab.

Overall- fine. but bring your own towels if you want them changed

Just back on the 17th Sept from my 2nd time at the Boston Hotel and both times I had my children with me and I cannot fault it! The staff are lovely and very helpful and accommodating, especially when the kids want something different to eat. Joe was lovely as usual, as all the staff are. Food is soooooo good! Can't fault that either. The entertainment is great and the kids are always welcome. Only one complaint about the comedian that was there on Saturday, no one made me aware that he was going to be so rude as my 9 year old daughter was happily sitting in the bar with her DSi and my mum and I had to take her up to bed as the comedian was pure filth. Hilarious but I would like to have been told he was going to be so rude. Other than that, no complaints. Our room was lovely, as expected but we were in room 116, right above the bar and it got very loud. Thankfully, the kids were so tired it didn't bother them. All in all, a wonderful 2nd stay at the Boston and we will definitely be back! Highly recommend The Boston to anyone :)
