My mother and I have just returned from a two night stay at the Big Blue Hotel, Blackpool while on a trip event at the Pleasure Beach.
This was our first stay in this hotel. We arrived at 2pm and was pleased to get checked in under a minute (especially since check-in is at 3pm) - reception staff excellent. Room appeared airy & modern with nice decor - was cold at first - but a little press of the air-con and heating unit sorted the problem out in a jiffy!
The usual tea/coffee, biscuits, hot chocolate etc are provided free of charge in the hospitality tray to use during your stay and is replenished daily, as well as soap and shower gel in the bathroom. DVD player was provided in room - and dvds are availiavle at reception for £3 plus a refundable £10 deposit.
Housekeeping staff were extremely helpful - we requested two extra pillows for our room - when we returned they were all puffed up and ready to sleep on within our room. Nice.
Breakfast is excellent! If you love your breakfast, you'll love this! Help yourself to as much cereral, tea, coffee, toast, preserves and hot buffet as you can fit into your stomach. The french waiter is amazing - so friendly and down to earth.
We never tried dinning at night, but what we saw looked really good!
The only 'down', if you could call it that - was the vending machine near the lifts were not stocked up and the cans out of stock. Not that far to the nearest shop if you were desperate for a snack.
Talking of snacks, once the kitchen is closed for meals - it's open for room service (snacks) that the night porter can do. We ordered a chicken sandwich while drinking in the bar, expensive - but really tasty! Pizzas and Ice-Cream was also availiable too for the kids!
Overall, lovely hotel - oh yeah - if you like mints - there's a bowl in reception and in the bar for you to pick at! Freebies!
Go now, and you'll forget every other Blackpool accomodation you've stayed it.
Have fun when you go! :-)
