Premier Inn Blackpool Airport Hotel
Ranked #33 of 73 Hotels in Blackpool
Reviewed 5 October 2010

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.

We've stayed in many Premier Inns (and before then many of the original Travel Inns and a couple of Premier Lodges before the two merged) and despite the increase in prices over the years we still feel Premier Inn offers value for money, especially for a family like us with two children (now both over the age of 12, yet still plenty of room for us all to sleep in a family room). You know exactly what you are going to get, not least of which is comfortable beds (with enough pillows!) and a clean bathroom with a powerful shower and towels that are big enough, and absorbent enough to do the job!

This was our first stay in the Blackpool Airport Premier Inn, though we have often stayed at the Bispham Premier Inn as my brother lives in Fleetwood. This time, though, we were flying direct to Blackpool (from our home in Jersey) and as we knew we wouldn't have a car for the weekend thought that the airport Premier Inn would be the logical choice - it really is literally only a minute's walk from the terminal! It is also only a 20 minute walk to the Pleasure Beach and across the road from the number 11 bus which runs to, and through, Blackpool town centre. There is also the Squires Gate train station a five minute walk away if you require train connections as part of your onward travel.

Special mention to Kerri, the receptionist who checked us in. Our flight from Jersey on Friday night was delayed, but a quick phone call to reception meant that Kerri was soon giving us full details of the opening hours of the Air Balloon restaurant next door, and the offer of menus for a range of take aways within a 5 minute walk if we needed them.

We had breakfast in the Air Balloon next door. Although £7.75 per adult may seem steep for breakfast, you have to factor in that our two daughters ate for 'free' as part of the price, and as such it was less than £4 a head for as much as we wanted to eat. Unlike some other Premier Inns the cooked breakfast has to be ordered from your server, rather than self-selected from a hot buffet, but there is nothing to stop you asking for 4 sausages, 3 fried eggs and 5 portions of grilled tomato if that's what you want! Again, special mention to Emily, our server on each of our three mornings - her cheerfulness was a joy, even at 7.30am this morning, and after the first morning she also always remembered what we (and other guests staying more than one night) had ordered for breakfast the day before! We ate in the Air Balloon on our first night (having arrived in time in the end!) and as far as evening meals are concerned it's a typical chain with a typical chain menu - it won't blow you away, but it's reasonably priced for what you get and will serve its purpose if you're hungry!

Finally, if you're worried about airport noise, don't be - the airport is little used with fewer than ten flights a day even on a Saturday in July, and none of them excessively late or early in their timings. You won't even know it's there!

I have stayed here twice recently and have been perfectly happy with what this hotel provides. My large room was clean and cosy, the breakfasts were perfectly adequate and the staff were very pleasant. I didn't have an evening meal in the co-joined pub but did eat in the Nearby Lee Raj Indian and San Marco Italian restaurants and can recommend both. If you need a room in the Blackpool airport area then this Premier Inn is just the job.

After having to leave our hotel after the 1st night we decided to pop to the premier inn to see if they had any space and they did for one night, which was great, they even showed us the room before we booked it after out experience of a bad hotel the night before.

The staff were great in the Inn & the restuarant, they cant help you enough, was a shame to leave if im honest but they couldnt accomodate us they following night but did sort it for us to stay at the Yeadon Way premier inn which was as highly as good.

All rooms smell & look clean/immaculate. They cleaned the rooms daily from what i could see which is good.

Restuarant was as good, great breakfast with all you can eat and kids are free to eat up to 16 whcih pleased mine.
