We had a huge but dated room,overlooking the sea, we loved it. Check in was a bit tedious as we had to wait while. Parking was painful as there is one very full carpark in front, which they charge for. Maybe try and get there early, we arrived a bit late, hence the check in and and parking issues. The staff were friendly and helpful. We did not have a fridge and as we were doing a driving holiday and had supplies, this wasn't ideal. This a charming hotel, with old world charm. It was easy to catch a tram between hotel and beach to other areas of the front. Loved the boardwalk. The lights at Blackpool were a surprise, somewhat reminiscent of Las Vegas.
As for Blackpool, I can understand the historic draw of this place, its a bit cheesy, but if you relax and take it for what it is you will enjoy. Beware the hens, bucks and footies fans.
