We stayed here last week, fri-fri. We stayed in room 114 which is above the lounge so you can hear all the entertainment which we didn't mind but if you like to go to sleep early you might struggle. The room itself was clean and tidy with a lovely shower room and comfy beds. The staff are all friendly and make you feel very welcome, they are very hard working and are always happy to help and are very approachable. The meals are all delicious and filling, we didn't find anything we didn't like. There are tram/bus stops right outside the hotel which get you anywhere you want to go and having the travel pass as well means you can hop on and off trams/buses all day and save a fortune. We booked through Blackpool Promotions which meant everything was taken care of, travel, hotel and attraction passes in one payment at the time of booking, we would do this again. We really enjoyed our stay at The Boston and would definitely recommend it for anyone thinking about a holiday in Blackpool. We will be back :)

Room Tip: Like I said in the review in our room, 114, you could hear all the entertainment so if you are a lig...

Had a good stay here food was excellent and the young waiter who served us was brilliant but older foreign head waiter was very arrogant and rude.We actually heard him call another family's kids pigs as they made a mess eating !!! But overall a good hotel for the money we paid

We thoroughly enjoyed ourstay at the hotel. We have twins and they could be a little rowdy at times but the staff were always very friendly towards them. The manager was great, always on hand to help.

There were 5 of us at this hotel last weekend for a short break had a great time despite the awful weather, when we booked they were pretty full didnt have a room for three left however they accommodated with a fold away bed for our 5 year old which she just loved, meals were good as was the entertainment oh and the bingo.
We paid extra for a sea view which was worth it had a little sitting area which the fold away bed was put so plenty room.
Got free tram tickets for the whole time of our stay which was well worth it as we were never off them would have cost us £2 each had we had to pay.
Only thing I would say onthe negative side is that they need fans or Air conditioning. In the rooms, very warm had to keep the windows open.
Would definitely return though.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

I'm surprised at this hotel getting so many 5 stars ,there's nothing majorly wrong it's all just a bit tacky ,I didn't luck out and get an upgraded room so maybe that doesn't help but being sat at a table with other people when I want a table for 2 doesn't suit me ,meals were a bit meh hotel was busy so really noisy ,as I say nothing major but there's better and cheaper in blackpool for me

Just back from a 5day stay at the boston hotel. Had a very enjoyable time .have been to other hotels in Blackpool but Boston is by far the best. We paid extra for a sea view which was well worth it .Room and Bathroom spotlessly clean and new .Manager and all the staff were very friendly and helpfull .Most importantly the food was very good and there was a good menu to choose from .Bus and Tram stops right outside hotel which is very handy .We booked through Blackpool Promotions and got a free Bus and Tram pass .Forgot to mention the nightly entertainment which was very good .We definitely recommend the Boston Hotel and will be returning .

Room Tip: High floor and sea view .

We had a super break. Staff, food and entertainment excellent! Rooms ok, the hotel could do with a few fans tho! The dining room ran very smoothly even though hotel was full. Quiet during the night too. Cheers to Ollie for the Becks! The location for us was perfect. We will be going back.
