“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

I stayed at the Corona for a weekend at the start of July with my husband and little boy who is 4. The service and hospitality we experienced was second to none. The owners Paul & Richard were extremely friendly, professional and helpful and along with the other staff create a wonderful atmosphere. The hotel was very comfortable and spotless with lots of thoughtful touches to the room which was tastefully decorated. Breakfast was amazing and we enjoyed relaxing in the conservatory each morning before heading out for the day. We were also able to use a baby alarm in the bar so we could enjoy a night cap which was a brilliant touch. The Corona is in a quiet location but perfectly situated for access to the Pleasure Beach, South promenade and Sandcastle (minutes walk away). I think you would be hard pushed to find a better hotel in Blackpool, thank you so much for a wonderful stay, we will be back. Vikki, Gary & Jayden x

I stayed at the Corona for 5 days with my 2 children (13&9) during the first week of the summer holidays. The owners Paul & Richard really could not have been more helpful and approachable, especially with a minor medical hiccup! The hotel is spotlessly clean, very nicely decorated, and has a pleasant atmosphere.
The food served in the restaurant is of the highest quality, and reasonably priced, the rooms are clean, bright and well-appointed. All in all a great stay, and have already recommended it to friends and family. We will definitely book at the Corona again...thank you Paul & Richard...you should be very proud.

Hello and thank you for the kind words. We are very proud of the Corona, and as we enter our eleventh year, we are still finding ways to improve in what is already a great place to stay; these are our guest’s words, not ours.
It is very comforting to know that not just you and your family, but other guests feel relaxed during their stay, although we offer a very efficient service, we also encourage all our guests to feel at home.
With wonderful guest who help us keep up the good work and allowing us to invest year on year, we can only get better for you, our guests.
Thank you so much.
Paul & Richard

Well thank you so much for the review, it was lovely to meet you all and spend time with you during your stay.
I know you had said that you read the reviews on Tripadvisor before booking and by guests taking a few minutes to pass on their own experiences we can always keep our guests up to date with everyone’s experiences and it's always good for guests to read about the Corona before they book.
We do attract many families with our location alone, but along with all that we offer as 4 star guest accommodation, we do compete with the larger and higher grade hotels in the area. But as you know, we are here 24/7 to meet every one of our guests who walks through our door, so it’s our pleasure to see so many happy guests during their stay and help make their time with us more enjoyable.
We look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.

We recently stayed at this hotel whilst visiting family in Blackpool. We had found it through a quick Tripadvisor search for pet friendly hotels in the area and were so glad we did. The hospitality was friendly and efficient from the moment we checked in until the day we checked out. Two members of our family are vegetarian and were well catered for, at breakfast and at dinner. The food is of excellent quality and served in good portions too. The staff are well trained and understanding of our requirements.

The bar is cosy and friendly, where you can have a quiet drink or even choose to chat with the other guests if you wish. Also the reception lounge and conservatory are nice places to sit and read a magazine/book or two. The reception lounge has a nice flatscreen TV in it, plus our rooms each had flatscreen TVs, which were easy to work and great to watch whilst waiting for other family members to get ready!

The rooms are spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and you can get a good night's sleep as the windows are strong and keep out any sea breezes/winds and sounds quite nicely - although this hotel is already in a quieter area of Blackpool but near enough to the Pleasure Beach that you can see the 'Big One' rollercoaster and it takes 5 minutes to walk to the Pleasure Beach entrance, with a minute or two less to walk to the sea front (great for getting to the illuminations quickly!)

The Corona is the best dog-friendly hotel I have been to and I look forward to future visits. Thank you to all the staff for making this visit to Blackpool one of the best so far :)

Thank you so much for the impressive review. These are the words that are music to our ears. It was a wonderful experience meeting you all including Cesar. I guess it was fate that brought you to the Corona with so much competition in Blackpool from so many other hotels, B&B's etc.
As we enter our 11th year owning the Corona and working daily in the building, we are still as passionate today when we welcome guests each day. We look forward to welcoming you all again on your next trip to Blackpool.
Once again, thank you so much for your fantastic words; once again we are all proud to be a part of a fantastic team here at the Corona.

We have been in this industry for over 25 years and peopel know what they like, so we help them all along and hopefully exceed expectaions. We have a great location for all the attractions and we can't thank guests enough like yourself who take time to express their satisfaction with the Corona.

First off what a polite, friendly & efficient welcoming we had by owner Paul as soon as we entered the hotel! It took no time at all to check in at reception & to be shown around the hotel & to our room. Our room was a double room, small but beautifully presented. The room had a double bed, LCD television, Wardrobes, Shower & sink. The room had a window which overlooked apart of the Pleasure Beach, beautiful, although a little noisy one or two nights with traffic. The breakfast/dinning area was a joy to eat in with friendly service & fantastic food (even for us vegetarians!). The hotel is just 5 minute walk from the Pleasure Beach with some amazing restaurants along the way which were also very welcoming & friendly! Both owners Richard & Paul couldn't be more professional, friendly, helpful & dedicated in to running a perfect hotel! A*

Thank you
