“This hotel should be number one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2011

Stayed here for one night after reading seeing that this hotel was endorsed on the nickelodeon land website! Booked a deluxe double and actually took an inhale of breath on walking into the room! It was beautiful!! fireplace, living room area, beautifully decorated and lots of little complimentary touches included like toiletries, hot chocolate and bottles of water! Stayed in room 338 which overlooked the roller coasters which was fab for my daughter! Dinner was quite pricey at the big blue £7.20 for a glass of sparking White! Yikes! But food was overall pretty good! Staff were always smiling and couldn't do enough for you! Hired a DVD at the cost of £4 for the night with a £10 refundable cash deposit, a little steep! The big blue is right next to the pleasure beach and a good 8 mins walk from the main entrance, but with free parking for guests it's definitely worth the walk! Overall, we will be staying here again and recommending it to anyone who will listen!!!! Definitely felt like complete luxury!

My girlfriend and I stopped at the Big Blue Hotel last weekend and have only positive things to say regarding this hotel. The location is fantastic being right next to the theme park and a short walk to the centre of town. Our room was spaceous and clean, service from the staff was amazing and the food for breakfast delightful. People have stated that you can hear the noise from the theme park but we certainly couldn't. I'd highly recommend staying at the Big Blue Hotel.

Room Tip: If anything, upgrade to the Deluxe Room as we couldn't fault it.

Came back to stay this time with my family and once again see the Hot Ice Show at The Pleasure Beach, as the Hotel location is perfect for the Ice skating spectaular. The 2011 production once again was Amazing well worth seeing before its season closes Sunday 4th September - so anyone considering going to watch the fantastic world class skaters and to stay in The Big Blue should "get their skates on "and get booking - an added bonus is the Blackpool illuminations, which are being switched on this Friday 2nd September 2011
- Thanks to all the friendly staff in the Reception area -

This hotel is great, we traveled with our kids 3 months, 3 years, 5 and 6 years had a family room plenty of room, although being our second stay we requested a Family room (5months before when booking)with a large window for the kids too see the rides out side, and ended up with one of the rooms with a pokey window view.
It is a bit like a porthole on a ship not letting much light in, as there was no other rooms available?? we got told we had to upgrade to a family deluxe and pay an extra £30 per night, so we did but was disappointing.
Rooms are clean, restaurant is lovely, breakfast plenty of choice, very handy location.
The only hotel I would recommend in Blackpool.

I stayed at the Big Blue with two twelve year old boys - perfect - they had a TV each and bunk beds - with use of a PS2 - I had a king size bed. The bathroom was great! Breakfast was the best we've had in a hotel - so many options from cereal to fruit to cooked - excellent. Staff were all lovely - so helpful. Location just perfect for the Pleasure Beach. Next time we visit Blackpool we will be staying here.

Room Tip: The bunk beds in the Superior room are quite short - if children are over five feet book DeLuxe room...

we went to Euro disney in May and stayed in top hotel- but for child friendly this hotel was far better- seperate alcove with bunks for the kids- play stations to play on personal bunkbed TV available to hire fronm reception (free with deposit) . Ask for a room at the back if you want a bird's eye view of 'the big one'. otherwise request a quieter room. Staff brilliant, great with kids eg, when we couldn't set up play station a 'techy' was up within 2 mins and sorted it.

Restaurant child friendly like 'make your own pizza' and they brought toppings etc. However adult menu was bit wierd- fancy food, exceptioally expensive (even compared to Disney!) and not that good. Recommend Harry Ramsden's instead!!

Over all superb, and right next to pleasure beach and Sandcastle- but a couple of miles from most other attractions. Well definately go back- esp with great price on laterooms.com

We've stayed here a few times now and it definately (in my opinion) is the Best Hotel in Blackpool! The staff are polite and friendly, nothing is ever a trouble to them. The hotel is modern and very clean! Food is lovely too! Our room was fantastic, overlooking the pleasure beach! Would highly recomment this Hotel! It is more expensive than some of the other hotels, but it is worth it!!
