We stayed at the New President for three nights half board as part of a package with National Holidays. Despite terrible weather, we had a warm welcome with complimentary tea and coffee whilst our rooms were being prepared. My husband and I were given a family room with one double bed and a set of bunk beds. It was a corner room on the third floor and we could see the Tower from our window as well as the seafront. The bedding and towels were spotless but there were no toiletries in the bathroom. (Remember to bring your own). The hotel is ideally located for the beach and there are both bus and tram stops directly outside the door. For a fee of £10, we could purchase a Hilton leisure card which enabled us to use the gym and swimming pool at the Hilton which is just a coupe of Hotels away. We took advantage of this offer as the weather was so bad that we were limited with outdoor activities. The £10 was refunded to us when we returned the card to reception. Tea and coffee facilities were provided in each room and lighting was good which we have found to be unusual in hotels these days. Wi fi was also available. The meals were well prepared and filling. We could not fault the service either as all requests were swiftly dealt with in a pleasant manner. Nothing was too much trouble for the hard-working staff. As we were meeting up with family in the evenings, we did not see any of the entertainment provided but we were told it was very good. We would definitely return to this hotel is in Blackpool again. Obviously, you get what you pay for but our room had been recently decorated and although the bathroom was a little shabby, it did the job. Keep up the good work!
