We booked the deluxe family room for a long weekend break on the bed and breakfast rate. There were two bunk beds in a separate area for the kids with a TV for each of them. Our room had a super king size bed, loads of space, flat screen TV, coffee and tea making facilities. There was also an iron and ironing board. The bathroom was large with a bath, power shower and large sink.
Towels were luxurious and changed daily. Our view overlooked the wide street outside the front of the hotel. Other rooms at the rear overlook the Pleasure Beach. I did not take advantage of the discounted pleasure beach tickets available at the hotel as I had pre ordered them online. I gave my order number at reception and they were now to print off my tickets and allow us to enter via a private VIP entrance adjacent to the Big Blue Hotel so we were able to walk out of breakfast and straight on to the rides!
I hired a PS3 for the kids and they picked from the large menu of games. This trip there were no meet and greet animal characters for the kids but they met plenty of characters inside the theme park next door.
Breakfast. Queues started around 8.30 am and lasted till 9.30am. Wait was only 5-10 minutes to be seated. Best go for breakfast before queue starts. It was buffet style with the usual juices, cereals, pastries and typical English hot food selection. Additional accompaniments can be ordered at a cost. Everyone enjoyed our stay at the Big Blue Hotel and we will definitely be back.
