“Top quality hotel”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

My wife and I just spent 3 nights at the hotel. Stayed in a room at the front of the hotel with a big bay window, great view. The hotel is spotless and Wayne, the proprietor, can't do enough for his guests. The breakfasts are top quality. If you're planning a stay in Blackpool, look no further, we'll certainly be back. Thanks Wayne.

Wonderful review greatly received from this unknown person, thank you. Although, looking at the other reviews you have for Blackpool I believe I know who this is. If correct, thank you for coming to stay at the hotel and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Many thanks for the nice review Peter. The one thing that we can't do anything about is the weather, but it'll annoy you to know today the weather is lovely! So you'll just have to come back soon! It was lovely to meet you both and hope your UK tour goes well. Wayne on reception.

Left this morning and what can I say, if you are wanting a somewhere nice to stay for your break in Blackpool then look no further, Wayne & his team will look after your from the start to finish of you break. It's a bit further than the North Pier, but with the trams outside everywhere is accessible, and away from the madness of the centre.
The hotel rooms are all nearly renovated, and to a high standard, tea & coffee facilities, all on-suite, ours had a bath & shower, hair-dryer & flat screen TV !!
Breakfast is cooked freshly and enough to keep the hunger pains at bay for most of the day. I did not eat in the evening there, but whilst using the bar for a quick drink before going out the food which I saw come out look fantastic and plenty on the plate

I would definatley recommend to anyone to use the North Ocean Hotel, I would use again on my next visit to Blackpool

Keep up the good work lad's

Now , what I can say that has not already been said !! However Wayne , Chris and team so deserve all the plaudits -nothing is too much trouble but they do it in an unassuming way . We were lucky enough to book suite on second floor Friday to Monday , which was brilliant . Large room with 2 comfy chairs looking out over the prom , where we loved to sit watching the sea and the evening meals .Hotel kept really clean , very good position , away from noise {that includes sea facing rooms } but handy for everything . Wayne told us the best place to get tram passes , and so enjoyed talking to him and Chris . Breakfasts great and would certainly recommend having dinner here . Would definitely not stay anywhere else in Blackpool - just hope we will be able to get in , but will definitely be back -they so deserve to be successful , well done !

Room Tip: The suites are lovely but would have any room because the hotel is so good

Well wow back! thanks Jean for a great review and shower of compliments, it's so nice to be appreciated. It was a pleasure to meet you both and glad you enjoyed your stay together with the food. The larger sea view rooms are attracting bookings even into July and August 2015 so get your booking in soon Jean or you may end up with our broom cupboard! It will be great to see you both again.

We have just returned home after spending 2 nights at the North Ocean Hotel. Having stayed at various hotels in Blackpool, I was initially hesitant to return to the city as all of the hotels I have stayed in are appalling. The North Ocean is in a whole new class however. It is run by a friendly team who will go above and beyond the call of duty to provide excellent customer service. From carrying our bags up to our rooms, to recommending us places to visit and helping us do the research for prices - the staff are the most attentive I have ever seen.

Due to the hotel being so popular, we had to move rooms for the second night but this process was very smooth. Our bags were moved by the staff and there was no extra hassle for us. The rooms are clean, spacious and the beds are very comfy to ensure a great nights sleep! You can even get free WiFi in the rooms which is rare! Usually it is only found in the hotel reception or communal areas.

What makes this hotel extra special, is that they do not allow any Hen or Stag parties. This allows for a quiet and calm environment and also allowing no children under 14 to stay there either, means that it is an adult friendly zone. The client base is a mixed age range too, which you feel safe and not discriminated on. My sister and I are 22 and 19 and we were treated fairly and could have a laugh with the staff as well as mixing with the other guests who were staying there.

One final thing, if you do stay there - be sure to order the 'Steak on a Stone' for dinner. My tuna steak was HUGE and was caught fresh that afternoon.

I would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone!!

Room Tip: Deluxe suites are only £5 extra and have a seaview!

What can I say apart from thank you for visiting the hotel in the first place Laura and then thank you for then writing this wonderful review after your stay. Your father, sister and your good self were absolutely delightful and it was great to have you as guests. Glad you enjoyed your tuna steak on the stone, we try to use fresh locally sourced produce wherever possible, it's a little more expensive for us but you can certainly tell the difference. We get great pleasure in seeing guests say WOW and leaving the hotel with a smile on their faces, this happened in your case and we look forward to seeing all three of you again in the future.

Really enjoyable stay! So nice to visit Blackpool and have spotless, contemporary surroundings and be looked after by well trained, customer focused staff. This hotel is setting the standard for the many tired, ornament cluttered traditional b and b's to upgrade to. It was a treat to have such a freshly cooked, tasty breakfast which set us up for the day as portions are generous. Evening meal was delicious and excellent value and the free wine a real bonus. Twenty minute walk to the Winter Gardens/attractions but far enough away from bustle for a relaxing evening meal and drink and peaceful sleep. Bed (room 12) very comfy as was the entire suite. In the restaurant/bar a team member was right there just before you needed to ask for something and were friendly and polite. Parking is convenient and free. Be proud of yourselves and the very best of luck, we won't be looking for anywhere else to stay next time we visit because you have just what we wanted.

This was our second visit to The North Ocean Hotel in two months and pleased to say our opinion of this hotel hasn't changed. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely Wayne and his team, always happy to help. The food menu is excellent with plenty of choice for everyone and we could even afford a bottle of wine !!!! The bar prices aren't the usual bumped up prices that other hotels charge. you. We had a lovely suite looking out over the sea this time.......last time we had a twin room because the seaview rooms were already booked, but even that room was excellent. Our friends have booked this hotel and I know Wayne and the team will look after them.

Thanks again for a lovely weekend and hope to see you again soon.
