Reviewed 10 October 2009

our party has just arrived back home from a most enjoyable break. Disabled access to most areas is good, i have an battery wheelchair and found it very easy to get around. Our party stayed in rooms 407 and 401 both had sea veiws and were very clean., room 407 has a wet room which is a good size, we booked a hoist which was fine although we had a little trouble with the bed as it was a divan and hoist wouldn't fit under but this was rectified within hours.We also booked a shower chair but this was basic and not suitable for my needs but help was at hand the red cross isn't far away and they had an over the toilet shower chair with arms for support we left a deposit which you get back although you are expected to make a donation. The hotel has mobility scooters and wheelchairs to hire for a daily rate we hired a wheelchair for one of our party at £3 a day which i think was very good. The food at the hotel is very good and the dining room is clean and modern. The staff from the manager down were very helpful we would book again.

Good Morning,

Regarding our last weekend visit to your Hotel (room 314).
We would like to say was most enjoyable.

This was our annual visit to Blackpool and we have stayed in a few hotels as you can imagine, We were most pleased with the President Hotel and would comment that the staff throughout were very well mannered and helpful. Can I also say compliments to the Chef, Kitchen staff and restaurant staff.

The food was very,very good and in Blackpool was the 1st hotel we have stayed in where the food was a buffet style--mush the better way than many who pop your dinner on a plate and although usually nice, is set in quantity and choice. Your method is far better and much more enjoyable--the food in your hotel should leave no one any reason for complaint whatsoever.

The 2 young lads you have working in the serving area were great as was Sophie in the restaurant who assisted us in anyway we asked and always with a great smile-Sophie is our nominated member of staff.

My other comment is that the arrangement you have with the Hilton for the use of the leisure facilities is wonderful and we took advantage of that.

Thank you for making our weekend very pleasant and we shall look forward to another visit albeit in 2010 (as pensioners we have to come when can afford it)

Kind regards

I stayed at the new president in september 09, with a large group of friends. The hotel was comfortable and very clean, with a wide range of good quality food. Althought we were staying at the hotel during the illumination, due to the hotels good location, the noise levels within our room were kept to a minimum. Overall a nice hotel, that I would recomend.

I stayed at the New President with a large group for a convention. The staff were very firendly and exceedlingly helpful. Nothing was ever too much trouble. The food was excellent and facilities were very clean and tidy. There was also good entertainment each night in the hotel bar which rounded off our weekend nicely. I would recommend the New President to anyone to stay at as they really do give good customer care and a high quality of service.

Although I was not actually booked into the President, as a member of the JAF Convention being held there (and whose other members actually stayed there), I was made to feel quite welcome by the staff, esp. the dining room staff and the manager, Howard. I had two meals in the dining room and lunch at the bar. The food was simple, but well-prepared. The nightclub was fun, too.

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.
