Booked this hotel for a family visit to the pleasure beach. It is a few minutes walk from the pleasure beach train station. All the staff were fantastic, helpful and smart.
Our room was a delux room overlooking the park on the 2nd floor - the big one whizzes past your window! The only problem was the size of the bed - a small double, not good for two large adults. The rest of the family had a family room with bunk beds and huge double beds ....
They warn you that you might have to wait for breakfast but it is well organised. And the breakfast buffet is great all self service.
The hotel can print out pleasure beach wristbands for you if you have bought them in advance and also if you don't want to ride you can get free entry to the park if you stay there, saving you £6.00. Entry to the park is through a VIP entrance and you get in 1/2 hour earlier than others.
They recommended a great fish and chip restaurant - the cottage and also advised us to buy the day tickets on the tram as this was cheaper than buying a single each time you hope on and off.
All in all a great hotel for a family trip to Blackpool.
