“First Class”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Stayed here on 15 March 2013. Im not a Blackpool fan but as my partner is and coming back from Dubai, it was a special treat for her.

Absolutley fantatstic stay. Could not fault it. Even though Ive no affinity to BFC, it was special looking out of the pitch and the room was of an exceptionally high standard. The staff I encounted were friendly and warm and simply as a hotel, it was spot on.

If I was being extra extra picky, I didnt see (or find) any brew making facilities but given the high standard of everything else, it made no odds to us.

We will be back. (As long as the room is facing the pitch!)

Room Tip: I dont know what the non-facing pitch rooms are like but the view will be of a travelodge, so Id rec...

Stayed in Blackpool on the off chance will returning from London on a stop over and tried the hotel by of chance. The front desk girl was very welcoming and very friendly and gave me a good deal for three double rooms and when we got to the room it was like a child in the candy store. We had a view over the football stadium and the room was enormous as was the bed super king size. The bar staff were equally very friendly and attentive after some drinks we headed into the town for a great night out. I will definitely return the this hotel it is very nice.

Stayed September 2013, travelled on business

Stayed here on a 2 night KGB deal break with my partner. Paid extra for an upgrade to an executive room, worth it! We ate in the restaurant on the first night; (Rowley's, which is run independently from the hotel, we believe - food was OK, but nothing special). For our second night we had takeaway from local Chinese - excellent! (Red Pepper)
Hotel immaculately clean and reception staff (in particular Steph were very helpful) Thank you for a lovely stay - we will be back as and when we visit Blackpool again.

I wanted a few days away just me and the wife and we hadn't been to Blackpool for a long time so as i was trawling through the many hotels i fell upon Blackpool FC Hotel.I had never heard of it but as i am a avid football fan thought it would be different and novel to wake up within a football ground and booked a exec room for 2 nights through late rooms which was on buy one night get a second night free. We arrived early at 12 noon but the room was ready and as it was my birthday i had booked a bottle of wine on arrival as a treat and that too was ready in the room and waiting.The view was fantastic we were on the third floor just behind the goal and could see the top of Blackpool tower in the distance.Anyway in simple terms the rooms are excellent modern clean and fresh. The staff are very helpful and attentive and Rowley's restaurant and bar are well worth a visit . The food is excellent and the prices are no more than what you would pay in a normal restaurant/bar.You get to mingle with some of the Blackpool fc players as some of them are based there and that brings me to my only niggle and its not a moan at the hotel but to some of the players who really talk to the staff like they are slaves and expect everything to be dropped because of who they are or in one respect who they have been.My hat goes off to the excellent staff at this hotel and especially to the young lady who works her socks off in the bar and certainly knows how to put some of the not so polite playing staff in there place. We had a great time here and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anybody.Well done and we hope to see you very soon.

Room Tip: Pay the little extra and get a stadium/pitch view its well worth it.

This was a first class hotel stay couldn't have asked for a nicer couple of days away.
Staff were fabulous. Food top notch. 100% to Steph on reception lady after my own heart.
As I worked for DCFC it was so nice to compare clubs and Blackpool FC Hotel and Club was my favourite by far. The hotel was faultless cant wait to come back in the new year.

This was definitely the wrong time to spend a couple of days in Blackpool with storms raging and winds gusting to 100 mph !! However the wintery conditions outside were more than offset by the welcoming warm friendly atmosphere of this modern hotel. Being attached as an integral part of the Bloomfield Road football stadium, we were afforded a perfect view of the pitch and stadium, from the dining room, and were even joined by some of the first team at breakfast!!. The breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of freshly cooked hot food to suit all tastes and appetites. Rooms (we had a standard double room with en-suite), were spacious and comfortable with well controlled air-conditioning . Use of the fitness gym was included .
Hotel location is good. As stated, it's on Bloomfield road, which is central Blackpool (for visitors from out of the area), less than 10 minutes walk away from the Tower, and all of the main shopping outlets. Ready access onto bus and tram routes also makes it easy to get around. If you are fortunate enough like us old 'uns to have concessionary travel passes, these can be used on the trams anywhere between Starr Gate (by the Pleasure Beach at the south end) up to Fleetwood Ferry,as well as local buses.
I would certainly stay here again, and thank you again to the friendly staff.

Room Tip: You will pay a premium for "pitch-facing" rooms, and there is a restricted check-in time...

Just returned from staying at The Blackpool FC Hotel. I cannot fault this hotel at all; staff outstanding in their service which is with real warmth and desire to make stay pleasurable. Rooms spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. Rowley's Restaurant and Bar very comfortable, food superb and a great view of the football pitch too. Thank you.
