We arrived Friday lunchtime and the suite we had booked for the weekend was already ready. we'd booked a bottle of fizz and this was waiting in the room. There was also a complimentary bottle of red wine. The Big Blue offers Family rooms, Deluxe and the Suites and the standard of the decor is exceptional. We liked the comtemporary feel of our rooms and the way the doible door windows looked into the Pleasure Beach which is right next door. The double glazing ensures you don't get bothered by the screams of those on the coasters, above and below, if you don't want it. Considering this hotel opened 2003 it still retains its 4 stars in my opinion. The staff are friendly, polite and very keen to help and assist if you need it. Answers are given with a smile - so rare in some places these days.
The restaurant provides a hearty breakfast (included) and a very respectable choice for dinner at reasonable prices together witha nice lounge area if you decide to have a drink and a natter. Two small niggles - the Wi Fi and the hard wired internet point were not working. We did report this but had vacated the hotel before anything was done. A safe in the room would be appreciated rather than having to use the front desk safe deposit.
Otherwise - an excellent place to lay your head in Blackpool and will be returning in approximately 12 months time.
