“Our 6th Visit , it gets better and better”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

Stayed in the Corona in May. I thought I had reviewed on return but hadn't hence the retrospective review.
I stayed in the Hilton last week in Blackpool on business and can honestly say it isn't a patch on the Corona , yes the rooms are larger but by no means better. Funny enough Paul & Richard must get a handful of days off a year and the one they did have I bumped into them.
Hotel rooms have been upgraded over the past couple of years and the 4 Star rating they now have is completely merited.
On family visits down I would not stay anywhere else and would thouroughly recommend to all no matter what age - a cracking place to stay! Look forward to my next visit which will be booked up soon.....

Thanks for the wonderful words. As you know, we do our best to ensure the property is maintained to the highest standards and the guest’s satisfaction is paramount to our future. As we enter our 10th year, we have had through the post just today a certificate of excellence issued by Tripadvisor for our high level of commitment and standards within the Corona, obviously, this was due to the guests taking time to share their opinions about the Corona. We will see you all later in the year. And thank you once again for your continued support and belief in us, the hotel and Blackpool.

We stayed in the Corona after being highly recommended. The owners Paul and Richard were extremely helpful and the rooms had a very modern decor which is not very common in blackpool!! The breakfast and dinner was excellent where breakfast had a wide variety of fresh fruit yogurts and grilled cooked breakfast, no grease!!! Overall the hotel was spotlessly clean. My son can be a bit of a handful but Paul was very understanding which help myself and my family enjoy the holiday!! It was in a great location near the "Big one" rollercoaster at the pleasure beach. If we go back to Blackpool we will definately stay in the corona hotel!!!

Hello and thanks you for the review, it was a pleasure seeing you again. We come across many guests with food allergies, likes, dislikes and if we can assist in any way to improve your stay, all guests have to do is inform us before or during their stay and we will do whatever we can.

Myself my husband and our two children have just come home from a two night stay with Paul and Richard we stayed in the family room with an adjoining door so we had privacy perfect if you have older children.The breakfast is included in the price and is amazing the staff are very attentive and the food is quality all fresh, cooked to order and plentiful.
We also had an evening meal this was beautiful and really good value we would defintly recomend anyone to stay at the corona Paul and Richard are really welcoming and do an amazing job the whole hotel is decorated beautifully and I can honestly say it is spotless. Keep up the good work guys and we are all looking forward to our next stay.

The corona is without a doubt the best hotel we have stayed at in all the 20+ years we have been holidaying in blackpool. We cannot fault a single thing about it. The hotel is absolutely spotless from top to bottom, breakfasts are thoroughly enjoyed by us all, the staff are very friendly and extremely helpful and the owners are 2 of the nicest men I and my family have ever met, credit to Paul and Richard for the fantastic work they put into their hotel, you, your staff and beautiful hotel make our holiday so much more relaxing and enjoyable. We will never go elsewhere now that we have found our home ftom home. The corona is perfect in every way. Thank you Paul, Richard and staff, see you next year. The millens from Scotland. xxxx

Thank you for reviewing us, it was great to see you all returning once again and so pleased that you and the children appreciated the new flat screen TV's in all the rooms, one more step in our attempts to ensure guests satisfaction. Sorry I have taken time to reply but as you know, we are kept busy as we are very hands on in the hotel. We look forward to seeing you again in 2012.

Have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Corona with my husband and 7 year old daughter. The Corona is a lovely, well presented, extremely clean and welcoming small hotel. The staff were all pleasant and cheerful and extremely informative. Breakfast was included in the price and was well worth getting up for, delicious and plentiful. We had an evening meal in the hotel one of the nights and it was very enjoyable and value for money. You would be hard pushed to find a more pleasant and comfortable stay in Blackpool than The Corona, it is well worth a visit. The staff should be very proud of their efforts. The Ramsey Family.

We travelled as a group of friensds for a 2 night break, The website shows great pictures and this is exactly what we got a top rated hotel with excellent rooms and facilities, immaculate through out the whole hotel, decor is very modern and looks as if just been refurb, but was a while ago. Staff are so helpfuland friendly and cant do enough for you, while we were there we had the opportunity to see all kinds of rooms they have to offer and everyone was exceptional.

Food is fantastic, cant fault anything at all.

I would not stay at any other hotel in Balckpool

Corona....all the way!!!!

Thank you Paula nd Richard for a grwat weekend :)
