We have been going to the queens for 8 years now just for the new year package.
There are about 13 family members who attend each year. This year was the first "official" year of the hotel well and truly belonging to a new company.
We loved the fact that the hotel was family run and would be excited to see what dress Mrs Pat Mancini would wear on new years eve, that was one of our many highlights. Our 2boys have grown up here.
Apprehensive about the change is probably a good way to sum up our feelings........ we were greatly surprised.
The entertainment was fab, food was great and staff as always an absolute pleasure. We did miss mrs mancini's new year eve speech and a few of the old staff, but times change and I think the blackpool queen would be pleased to still see some old faces sat in the dining hall.
New lifts that work, new setees in the lounge and some rooms re decorated. It was alot quieter but this ment no pushing and shoving on the dance floor come 12am new years eve.
Things can only get better (including the squeaky floor boards lol)
Our only grumble is the price. It is very expensive for children. This year ours were the only ones there.
Still we have rebooked for next year as we enjoy the family time together.
would highly recommend the hotel for the new year package. Pricey but a really lovely time had by all.
