Our first nights stay was hindered due to the children in the room above spending the night jumping off the bunk beds - Reception staff were brilliant no fuss, moved us to a quieter floor, even had our bags taken up for us while we went out for the day. Great fun for kids and adults alike watching the rides pass the bedroom window. Breakfast was really good, you had to be down before 9.00am though otherwise there was a queue. The only draw back was the evening menu for adults, very expensive and no choice of basic meals which was a shame really as the restuarant at night was empty, it resulted in us having to find alternative venues for meals, which in Blackpool is difficult unless you want fast food all day - the drinks in the hotel were well over priced too. Apart from that we would definately use this hotel as a base again though as we didn't have to touch the car everything was walking distance or the tram was just round the corner - we'd just plan meal venues before we go.
