Reviewed 25 August 2014

Stayed here a couple of times now. The buffet meals are absolutely fantastic although getting served can be a long wait sometimes. Rooms are good and staff are generally helpful. Decent pool and bar areas and kid's club .

Room Tip: Beach view is best as some rooms just look onto other rooms and it can feel a little claustrophobic.

Went to this hotel for a last minuite getaway before our baby is born. We picked this hotel for easy access to the trams but in a quiet location. Got the half board option. Was able to choose and reserve a table upon check in. This table was then ours for our entire stay. The food was first class. Plenty of options and delious. They would make alterations to the main meals if you asked but we didn't need to as we liked all the options on offer. The room was a good size and had double glazed windows with an opening light both in bedroom and bathroom. We were in room 340 and it was in a quiet part of the hotel over looking the side street. You could still see the sea front slightly when looking out the window. I was pleased with this room as I didn't want to pay the extra for a sea view room. The bath room was fantastic, very clean with a bath and shower. The car parking is limited but we got a space on the street right next to the hotel and could see the car from our room. We bought a 3 day bus and tram pass from the hotel. This was really good as the stops are right outside the the hotel and very frequent. You can hop on and off the buses and trams as much as you like with the pass. Used the swimming pool and found this good, clean and nice temperature. Could not fault anything. Just what we wanted for this stay. As we went over the bank holiday weekend the hotel was fully booked but I still thought we got a great service.

We've just had another holiday at The Cliffs Hotel, this was our 3rd year. We enjoyed a mid-weeks break, I had a double room with en-suite, my Mum, Sister and 7 year old niece shared a family room with a sea view. The rooms are very clean, with a daily maid service. The hotel is spacious with a large restaurant which offers a buffet style breakfast (everything you can imagine to eat) evening meal you can choose from the wide range of starters, and then a hot meal from the menu, there's always the chefs signature dish, a fish and meat dish and a vegetarian option, the wine is very good value, and there's lots of dessert's to choose from. Excellent service, very friendly reception staff. There is also a coffee lounge with a bar, and another bar. Each night they have entertainment, which starts with kids stuff, then a comedian, bingo and then another act after that.
There is a lovely swimming pool, sauna and a small gym. We will definitely be booking again for next year, it's excellent value for money and very pleasant and enjoyable. The trams and buses stop right outside and its a couple of minutes to the centre of Blackpool.

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view are the best, you will pay a little more, but it is worth it, and also it is v...

We have just returned from another stay at The Cliffs, our 8th. We visit every year, myself, my parents and my 2 children and are never disappointed. Reception staff are friendly, efficient and very helpful. Yes car parking on site is limited but only once in the 8 years have we had to park on the street. If you arrive around or before check in time you should be ok! We always book a family and double room with sea view, excellent views and spacious, clean rooms. Bathrooms are on the small side but are more than adequate! Towels are changed daily. Food is very good quality and always plenty of choice, once you are shown to your table for first time this is your table for the duration of your stay so never a worry you won't get seated no matter what time you choose to dine. We didn't make use of evening entertainment or kids clubs (The Base) not really our thing and sometimes the children do get a bit 'wild' when not supervised in The Base. All in all another great stay!
Tips: request a sea view room and avoid rooms near lift and stairwells as can get a bit noisy. Book for local attractions (eg Tower, Zoo, Sea Life) with hotel reception for excellent savings We will be returning next year!

The Cliffs Hotel Blackpool has great staff in all sections.Absolutely first class food - will satisfy the biggest appetite.decent rooms. entertainment pretty good but far far too loud so you may need earmuffs. the staff and food make up for any shortcomings.

Room Tip: we prefer sea view rooms
