As the name suggests, this hotel is right next to Blackpool Airport. We had room 33 which overlooked the airport, and as an aviation enthusiast this was a bonus for me (if you're not so inclined, don't worry too much -- noise was minimal and during the daytime only).
This is an older-style Premier Inn and our room was quite large, with a double bed, sofa bed, desk, and bath/shower. We were on the first floor and had to carry our cases up the stairs as there were no lifts; this was not a problem for us, but it's worth noting as not everyone travels as light as we do!
The location of the hotel is ideal for getting in to Blackpool, and getting out when you've had enough. It's only a couple of minutes drive to the illuminations, but away from the hustle and bustle.
The hotel is situated right next to a pub/restaurant called the Air Balloon. We were staying on a Thursday night and the restaurant was very busy at around 7pm, so it may be wise to book a table. We also had to wait quite a while for the food, but when it did arrive we were impressed and found it very good value. We went back for a drink at about 9pm and it was much less busy.
I was very comfortable at this hotel and would stay there again, especially as the location suited my needs.
