Reviewed 24 June 2014

We stayed here for two nights as we had tickets to see Mamma Mia and what a great stay it was. We were warmly greeted on arrival by Wayne who was a constantly cheery face throughout our stay - nothing was too much trouble for him. The room was clean and we had fresh towels each day. The full English brekkie was everything you could ask for to set you up for the day. Chris on the bar was wonderful at keeping our wine glasses topped up as we sat on the balcony taking in the view each evening (we were blessed with wonderful hot weather that weekend!). We were able to park the car up for the weekend outside the hotel and use the trams and buses to get into the centre (only a few minutes from Gynn Square to the Tower). This hotel deserves the excellent reviews it has been receiving.

Thank you for such a nice warm review. I think I know which guests you were although since Mama Mia opened last Friday (with great reviews) we've had quite a few guests go to see it each night. We aim to please and will carry on the good work. Thanks again and no doubt see you soon!

From a top hotel to top guests, thank you so much Peter and Linda for taking the time to write us a great review. As hoteliers we only get out what we put in, and this is why we're determined to make such an effort in everything we do here at the hotel. Birthday or Anniversary cards will always be placed in a bedroom if we are informed in advance. Of course it does help when we're enjoying it so much. It's fantastic to see so many guests leave knowing that they made the right choice when coming to our hotel. See you again one day in Blackpool.

I stayed at the North Ocean Hotel on Saturday 7th June for one night. My sister and I had been at work all day and just wanted a nice hotel to relax in after our train journey to Blackpool. We had a dance event in the Winter Gardens on the Sunday so wanted somewhere close enough to walk. We arrived to be greeted by Wayne and then were shown to room 23, our lovely double room with a sea view. Luckily, whilst we were there the weather was fantastic so we had food and drinks on the terrace whilst watching the sun go down.... perfect! The staff, food, rooms were all top class and we will certainly return when we have another event in Blackpool.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are lovely!

When you book a B&B for a weekend at Blackpool you can potentially embark one of life's more 'colourful' experiences. Cheap is often associated with nasty, and expensive is certainly not guaranteed to deliver.

I'm a sucker for anywhere the basics are done well and where extra touches add all round excellence.

The North Ocean delivers on every count; Fantastic staff, excellent food, clean, modern, tastefully decorated, well appointed - all at a very reasonable price too.

Simply excellent.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us. It was nice to meet you both and look forward to seeing you again later in the year. Booking earlier is always an advantage as you would have more choice room choice. See you soon!

A pleasure to stay at the North Ocean Hotel. From the moment we arrived, help was on hand and nothing was a bother. Wayne and his staff were all brilliant and the hotel has a lovely warm and relaxed atmosphere.

We booked a room with a sea view and were not disappointed - the room was spacious and well appointed, and like the rest of the hotel, spotlessly clean with attention to detail throughout. The bed was SO comfy, we slept really well! The location is ideal for a relaxing break, far enough away from the main drag for some peace and quite, but everything easily accessible by tram. There are also plenty of shops round the corner if you need anything.

Food was amazingly good - we hadn't planned where to eat in the evenings when we booked, but ate both nights in the hotel (mainly from the chef's specials menu). Fresh, beautifully presented and portions were more than generous! The choice was more than adequate with traditional fare available plus the chef's specials (Thai curry and pasta dishes were top notch!). Breakfast was equally delicious and the full English came with all the trimmings - we didn't need anything else to eat all day!

We had a brilliant time in Blackpool and can't thank Wayne and his staff enough for making our stay so enjoyable. We wish them every success for the future and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the North Ocean - 10/10!

Room Tip: We were in room 23 - lovely views, bright and sunny room and a gorgeous sunset!

Thanks for a fantastic review and the many great points you mentioned. It was nice to chat with you each day and of course the hot weather was an added bonus for those of you who weren't stuck behind a desk all day! We're on a mission here at the hotel and know you will return to see us in the future and the rapid changes we are making. Many thanks again and see you again soon.

This is undoubtedly the best hotel in Blackpool. Wayne and the rest of the staff have set their standards high and are maintaining them! When I first booked they were number 4 out of (I think) 72 hotels in Blackpool. They are now deservedly at the top, or should be. Great rooms, well furnished and decorated, very comfortable beds, good shower, plenty of hot water and powerful, (nothing worse than shivering miserably under a trickle!). Fabulous breakfast, the staff are so attentive and very much on the ball. We could not fault this place, if you are visiting Blackpool, stay here if you can, but book early because they are going to be busy!

Room Tip: Room 12 is great

Thanks for a fabulous review Michelle and Pete. You're dead right, the secret is maintaining the standard at all times whilst gradually raising the bar constantly. Once we've finished all bedrooms in just a few weeks time we'll fine tune them on a second visit to get the desired final result. Nice that you had not water, we've just had a brand new hot water system installed which is obviously working!

Many thanks again and see you again soon!

This is the best hotel we have been to in a VERY long time !! We had such a fantastic time and the hotel just added to that. On arrival we were greeted by a very cheery Wayne who by the end of our 3 days was more like a friend than a receptionist ! The bar staff Chris and Dan were great and looked after us really well when we ate in the restaurant ! Overall we had an amazing time and the room was perfect to us,, so much so that I am currently looking to go back in August !! Thank you so much for a great time !!!
