We were (very) fortunate enough to secure tickets to see BBC Strictly Come Dancing being filmed in Blackpool and decided it would be less hassle to stay overnight than travel home after the show. Having looked through a large number of mediocre hotels and B&B places on Tripadvisor and elsewhere, we picked the Carousel on the expectation that it would be the best of a bad bunch.
We were both very pleasantly surprised. Right from the point of check-in (a quick taxi dash to drop the suitcase off before the show as we couldn't take it in with us - where the staff happily booked us in and offered to take the case to the room) through to check-out the following morning everything was great. Friendly and quick service at reception and in the bar, lovely (quite obviously recently redecorated) room with comfortable bed and smart en-suite, great and quick room service breakfast. I realise when staying in a resort hotel that noise from other guests can be luck of the draw, but we had a great and undisturbed night's sleep.
The only very minor observation I'd make is that the television in the room was very small but to be honest this wouldn't affect us recommending the hotel to others in future. If you're visiting Blackpool (and particularly if you're going to the nearby Pleasure Beach) I'd recommend you stay here.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The beautifully refurbished Carousel is the highest AA rated 3 star hotel in Blackpool. Situated five minutes from Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the hotel is ideally located on the South Promenade, near to all of Blackpool’s attractions - but far enough away from the bustle of Blackpool's famous Golden Mile to offer a relaxing, refreshing and high quality experience. Our Cafe Bar 663 serves both breakfast and an extensive menu for all-day dining, alongside its bar facility and 24 hour room service. We have 22 family rooms all with DVD players and an extensive library of DVDs for the children available to loan with our compliments. The hotel also has nightly entertainment during the summer months alongside Cafe Bar kids activities, subject to seasonality. ... more less
