“week end break”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

stayed at the North Ocean sat and sun last week end, made to feel very welcome by Wayne and the staff. This hotel is very clean, every where is fresh and modern, the rooms are very smart and the beds very comfortable, very peaceful nights sleep which is unusual in Blackpool. The breakfast was fab, I couldn't manage another bite till 7 that evening. Thanks to Wayne and all the staff, hope to see you soon from Sue and Allan

Just had a wonderful 2 day break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Friendly team all round, everywhere spotless. Our room had lovely views overlooking the sea. Breakfast and evening meal were excellent. Received a lovely card and chocs from Wayne and staff. Will certainly book this hotel again.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights at end of June, we were welcomed by Wayne at reception who very helpful and friendly,we were shown to our large double room, which had fantastic views overlooking the sea, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The room had two lovely chairs at window which were great to chill on and enjoy the views. The bathroom is a good size with a good shower and nice fresh fluffy towels. The bed was very comfortable and linen spotlessly clean. We ate in the hotel the first night and the meal was exceptional, huge portions and good quality food served by two friendly guys, breakfast was just as good and Wayne was on hand to give good tips about where to go and how to get best value for tram tickets, they certainly know how to make you feel at home. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Blackpool, or there is a tram stop nearby. We enjoyed our walk as the weather was great. We will most certainly choose this hotel again and would highly recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Booking a seaview room is well worth the extra money.

Tom and Eileen, what can we say apart from thank you! You were a great laugh, we felt special around you too! During your 5 day stay you really did get to see how things are run at the hotel (including the odd comical drama). We can't wait to see you again. from the A Team x

Me and my boyfriend chose this hotel after seeing the ratings and we weren't disappointed. We were greeted with a smile and had help taking our bags to our room. The staff were very friendly throughout our stay and made us feel most welcome. The room was fantastic, with a great view. There was a good choice of food on the menu and the food was quick and delicious. I would definately recommend this hotel to couples and we will definately be booking it for our next stay.

My boyfriend and I spent last weekend at this hotel and absolutely loved it. I think both of us were initially shocked that we got such a bargain considering the raving reviews (and I don't remember ever seeing a hotel with NO negative reviews whatsoever) and it's safe to say we were probably even more shocked that it lived up to the expectations all the reviews had given us.

From the outset we were impressed at the friendly service and banter, including having our bags carried to the room for us! The room was great, spacious and well laid out, and the bed was so comfortable - I was not happy about having to get up in the morning!

As we had came down to Blackpool straight from work, we arrived quite late in the evening so decided to take advantage of the offer in the hotel to get two courses and a bottle of wine for £11.95 each rather than heading out anywhere. I loved the breaded mushrooms I had to start and the boyfriend definitely enjoyed his potato wedges, which included bacon and cheese. It was my main course, however, which defeated me - an absolutely MASSIVE portion of Toad in the Hole. Even its description on the menu leaves my mouth watering again at the memory -" A large Yorkshire pudding containing sausages served with creamy mashed potato and onion gravy" - and makes me wish I could eat the half I couldn't manage at the time right now. (Any chance of sending one up to Glasgow???)

Breakfast was also fab - although I was still struggling to find space in my stomach from my meal the previous evening! There was a variety of cereal and juice available and you could also make toast... then the full English appeared on the table . . . and promptly disappeared into our mouths.

I've stayed in Blackpool many times over the years, both in the old Pontins camp and several of the hotels along the front, including the Metropole, but this has definitely been the best hotel I've stayed in here. I would definitely go back here and I would recommend it to everyone!

Thanks for a great stay!

Thank you Paula for a really great review. It pushes us on to do better. I know we currently have no negative reviews however we do realise that one day we'll inevitably receive one. When that day comes we will take note, adapt if necessary and act in a professional manner when replying to it. We do try our very best and are working constantly to improve the hotel. It's still very worrying for us when guests leave or the smallest thing goes wrong during their stay. Generally people in life love to see a failure or to see someone get knocked down but we are blessed with having genuine support from the most wonderful kind guests (like yourselves) over our first 4 months of being open at the hotel. Your support in our efforts to offer something a bit different in Blackpool is much appreciated. We thanks each and every one of you!! xx
