The President Hotel
Ranked #61 of 73 Hotels in Blackpool
Reviewed 25 September 2009

I stayed here for 3 nights, in a large group. The staff were very helpful, on the occasions we needed assistance and always checked at a later time that what they had helped us with was satisfactory. The room was comfortable. The food was very good and overall I would recommend it to anyone wanting a short and reasonable break in Blackpool.

The New President is one of the best hotels in Blackpool and certainly the only hotel I would ever stay at.

Last year I took a group of 30 people to Blackpool, for a fan convention dedicated to the Robin Hood actor Jonas Armstrong. This year we had a mix of Adults and children. Every member of staff encountered was helpful and showed great patience.

A special thanks to those in the Kennedy bar including the DJ. They ensured that everyone had fun and enjoyed themselves.

Perfect location, directly opposite the seafront, tram stop across the road.

First Class!

I thought the hotel was very good value for money. The room wasn't fantastic but it was comfortable and clean. The dining room and bars were nice and the food provided was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful and the management dealt with any small problems quickly and efficiently. I would definitely stay here again.

Having already stayed at this hotel last year for 2 nights I knew roughly what to expect.

The hotel itself is going through a refurbishment so some things are going to be better than others.

On arrival i was greeted by reception and checked in quickly. I arrived to my room and was pleasantly surprised by the size, as i was staying on my own i was expecting a smaller room, but i had a nice double bed and plenty of room to store my things.

The bathroom was absolutely lovely (obviously one that had been refurbished), there was a nice new suite with toilet, sink and walk in shower. It was slightly small but fine for me. The only 2 disappinting things if you could call it that was the view from the window which was just of another building next door and the lack of TV remote not that i particularly had time to spend watching it anyway.

The food was very nice again in the restaurant with plenty of choice for both breakfast and dinner. The staff were very prompt in clearing away plates to ensure that tables werent full. The bars were nice and the entertainment was pretty good too. They obviously work hard at abiding by laws and clamping down on underage drinking as i was asked for ID on 2 separate nights even though i am 28, as were other members of the group i was with.

All in all a lovely 3 night stay and for the money i paid to include breakfast and dinner it was an absolute bargain. Also Howard the hotel manager works hard to make guests happy so if he is aware of a problem then he will do his best to sort it out but he cant do that if he isnt told!!!

On arrival at hotel i got an unfriendly welcome from receptionist whom i found very snooty. Room was old fashioned i guess its one thats not been refurb. Bathroom very small not suitable for the larger person and shower head in awkward position. However bed was very clean, nice fresh sheets. Room was a bit foosty on arrival. problem with window in room needs sorting for security and warmth in the dark winter months. Restaurant area very nice food was reasonably good but you have to find yourself a table set which i feel should be organised a bit better. Staff perhaps appointing tables at door. Buffet style self service. I do think if you have limited times on breakfast/dinner and a full hotel then there should be enough food, teapots, glasses for everyone. Bar staff friendly and attentive. Overall good hotel very pleasant views over the irish sea on a gd day. Perhaps staff could be more attentive and welcoming at reception and more organised in rest. Will definatley stay again but will book a sea view room next time.

Have just returned and came straight to the computer to write a review. Can't believe there are some bad reviews - are they sure they stayed in the New President Hotel?? Everything was brilliant, the manager couldn't have been more helpful and was very obliging, the staff were too. The dining room and Kennedy Suite are beautiful, lovely little cafe area if you want a quiet cup of coffee and relax. The food was gorgeous. We will most definitely go back.
