“Another great stay at the Corona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

We are regulars to this Hotel and to be honest most reviewers have said it all. This hotel is a Gem and once discovered you will not even look at other Accommodation. Paul & Richard are the perfect Hosts with lovely warm welcomes for all. The Hotel is immaculate so congrats to the cleaning and housekeeping staff. The dining room staff are also very friendly and efficient plus they all look so very smart. I only dislike one thing (yes I did say dislike!!) that is the pool table, I find the noise is really irritating when you are trying to relax in the conservatory area, maybe I am just getting to that age!! That apart we love our stays here and so look forward to each visit which is over all too quickly. Word of mouth will ensure that this Hotel gets plenty of bookings I just hope not too many when we want to stay I cant imagine NOT staying there! So heres to many more happy times at The Corona.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely and if you want a little extra for special celebrations any superior or deluxe...

I stayed at the Corona for 6 days, with my wife and 4 children. My youngest is a baby girl only 6 weeks old. It was essential therefore to find a hotel which was clean, comfortable and hygenic. What a find! The Corona is a wonderfully clean and comfortable hotel and its all thanks to its owners Paul and Richard. They take massive pride in their business and it reflects in all they do. And to top it off breakfast is fab. We were staying there for the world street dance championships being held at the Winter Gardens. Whilst the location of the hotel was further than we normally stay, it was great to be away from the noise and roudiness you normally get from the more centrally located hotels. Yet it was only a short stroll to the Pleasure Beach and Water Park, which we enjoyed on the Monday and Tuesday. We would strongly recommend this hotel for anyone who values great friendly customer service, delivered with the profesionalism of any top class hotel. Wouldn't stay any where else now.

As always both Paul and Richard were excellent hosts. Nothing is too much trouble from carrying yr bags upon arrival to offering to put yr wet stuff in the dryer following a soggy day at the pleasure beach. Best hot chocolate in town is served here. The hotel is close too south pier which is a welcome short walk following the excellent breakfasts. Thanks guys had a fab time as always.

This hotel is one of the best I've stayed in the uk. As first timers to Blackpool myself and my daughter, were made to feel welcome, settled and at ease. We were shown our rooms which were big enough with two single beds and modern decoration to the room, we're we had complementary tea coffee and water. We had a spacious en suite shower room. I was given all information on booking trips online guys book everything massive discounts and you just show confirmAtion reference to get your tickets. The breakfasts here are out of this world and catered for everyone, I had my tea here which told was a snack of jacket potato with cheese and salad my daughter had a kids meal of chicken nuggets lets just say the biggest of men with the biggest of appetites wouldn't go hungry. And a must is the hot chocolate which my daughter had every night speciality here with the chocolate powder cream and marshmallows in a huge cup. All in all this is the place to stay, be it a first time visit or not. Close enough to all attractions walking distance even the train station but far enough for a good nights rest. We most definitely will be back guys and thank you so much for making our trip so pleasurable u put the pleasure in pleasure beach. Xxx

We stayed here for two nights having booked thru a KGB Deals offer. The hotel is a very easy three mins walk from the Pleasure Beach train station. (Tip - use that one rather than Blackpool North when staying in this area of the town). The actual Pleasure Beach Amusement Park is less than five mins walk away- but you dont get the noise that goes with it.
On arrival the owner greeted us at the door and by name. The attention to detail would be repeated during our stay and did not go un- noticed. Its a pity more in the hotel business dont make that same effort. After a swift check in -he showed us to our rooms and carried the luggage. We had a superior double room -it faced the front street and was very well decorated. The bed was very comfortable. Check out the photos on the hotel website as they do give you an accurate representation of the hotel. Our daughter and grand- daughter were in a twin room and it was also very comfortable.
There is a tv lounge beside the reception area. There is also a quiet seating area at the front of the hotel facing onto the street. There is a nicely decorated and relaxing bar on the ground floor. The prices were very fair and you could hide there after a busy day running after the grand daughter at the Pleasure Beach. (Tip- a PB pass costs £30 on the day but £20 by booking online & collect the pass on your arrival. Tesco clubpoints offer even better deals- see the blackpool forums for many tips.)

The bedrooms were kept very clean and the public areas were also spotless. We were on a b&b basis and the breakfasts were super- cereal then tea and toast -with refills and then a very tasty cooked breakfast. The breakfast staff were very polite and helpful and made a fuss of any children.
Its only a short walk to the South Pier and there is a tram stop on the esplanade before the Pleasure Beach for the less energetic to get to the Tower and all the other attractions.
The staff were a credit to the owners and have obviously been coached /trained to ensure the visitors enjoy their break. A fair number of visitors were repeat bookers - it was a relaxing and friendly place. It is understandable why its so popular.

The staff took a real pride in the running of the hotel. They followed the maxim of doing well the little things that make the difference between a reasonable stay and an enjoyable one for the visitors- including ensuring cleanliness, placing bottled water and chocolates in the room on arrival- replenishing tea/coffee etc.in the rooms - asking visitors if they were enjoying their stay- and giving friendly tips on where to eat and even better where not. On leaving we were asked if we enjoyed our stay and if everything was to our liking at the hotel. I cant imagine very many would say no.
We really enjoyed our stay here and for what its worth would recommend this hotel. It certainly merits the good reviews it has via T.A.

my husband and I stayed for two days at the Corona on a groupon deal . It was excellant value. The hotel is very comfortable and friendly. spotless clean. very tasty and plenty of choice for breakfast. The owners Richard and Paul are very welcoming and friendly. The room was cleaned whilst we had breakfast which was great. Good parking for disability.

The hotel was spotlessly clean in all areas and all staff were friendly and very helpful. The proximity to the pleasure beach was great but despite being very close to everything, the hotel and surrounding area was very quiet. The food was nicely cooked and bar prices very reasonable. We will definitely return when we plan our next trip to the pleasure beach.
