“Fantastic! One of the best hotels in blackpool!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 via mobile

Firstly i have to say if you are reading this review aa you are considering booking, or to see if it is worth the money the answer is yes yes yes yes!

The hotel just oozes class and sophistication but makes kids feel like a million dollars too! I went on a family trip to see the illuminations and had with me my little boy who was 3 at the time! We all loved it! The food, 1st class, so much choice! The rooms spot on! Defiantly made the holiday having one looking onto the pleasure beach side. ( just for info i believe all deluxe are pleasure beach facing which is brill, superior have a mixture. )
The deluxe is worth the money to upgrade it i lovely but even the superior is still great!
The only area i have marked down i location. Don't get m wrong its right next to pleasure beach and they open the exclusive entrance for you to get in on the morning, but getting out is. Different story! They really need to keep the entrance/ exit open all day as its a long walk!

Just home from our second visit to the hotel and I am glad to say, it was as fantastic as our first. The Rooms are spotless, the staff were helpful and polite and the food served is excellent . I have stayed in many luxury hotels and this is defiantly my favourite. It's a great hotel for children too. It is extremely child friendly and if you request it, you can get rooms that has the most fantastic views of the Pleasure Beach. The only thing that does let it down is that some parents seem to let their children run wild very early morning . The thudding around drives you mad . This time I requested a top floor room to avoid this however, it still didn't make a difference. The next room were happy to have their children shouting and banging around at 6.30am. I do wish some parents would consider other guests and control their children. If I can control mine then I don't see why they can't do the same . Not everyone wants to go to bed and wake up when their children do !!!!!

What a shame that there aren't more of these hotels that accommodate the needs of children. We spent a fabulous weekend here. Friendly staff with fantastic rooms with bunk beds and TVs for the children spotlessly clean. The breakfast is self service which is great for picky children and was also perfectly cooked with everything you could ask for. The only gripe we had was the pillows which were incredibly hard. Even so, we will definitely be returning later in the year for another fun filled weekend.

The first time we stayed in this hotel was in 2004, just a year after it opened; lets just say that it left great first impressions! Since then we have stayed here, every yearly visit to blackpool.
The staff are always friendly and happy to help; anyone that says that the staff are rude or impolite , must have stayed in a different hotel! It is always extremely clean and all the rooms are exactly what you would want for a family weekend away. Some rooms even have a great view into the Pleasure Beach, which is great for the kids as they can watch the roller-coasters.
All in all, I love this hotel and I'm quite picky so it takes a lot to impress me. This hotel surely does!!! :)

Room Tip: Every room is great

Stayed for 3 nights in early February 2014 and was really impressed. I booked through the 'secret hotel' deal on last-minute.com and saved 63 gbp on the published price! The room was immaculate and was well serviced with all of the 4 star extras. The breakfast buffet was excellent with plenty of choice.
The staff were friendly and helpful, a really enjoyable stay.
