My wife and I booked in for a night at short notice on a flying first visit to Blackpool, having found the hotel via this site's rankings. The pride and care taken in the establishment shone through, and added to a really fun 24 hours in the town. Wayne is a lovely chap and gave us a very warm welcome and send-off, while Jack's concierge service with our largest bag was exemplary. Breakfast service was excellent and efficient, and our room - while a small one due to our late booking - was clean and comfy with several ingenious space saving touches. Even the sun came out for our stay!

Many thanks for the kind review. Glad you enjoyed your short stay in Blackpool and even more pleased that you noticed our efforts in running the hotel. Although we've had our share of wet and windy weather the summer has been generally quite good and you were fortunate to hit on a nice day. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. We chose it after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We can echo all the good points that have been made by others. The thing that makes this little hotel stand out from many others we have stayed in, both home and abroad, is the staff. They genuinely cannot do enough for you. Particular mention must go to both Wayne and Chris. They both showed great care and sensitivity in our situation - thank you! The room we had was at the rear of the hotel - not the prettiest view in the world - but it was very clean and comfortable. What more do you need? There is a very nice verandah on the first floor where we enjoyed sitting out in the afternoon sun and what a view of the sunset! The breakfast was very good - we ordered less on the second day as the portions are so generous. Last night we ate in the restaurant. What a treat! My husband had scallops and prawns which he said were delicious and I had venison. Both came served on a hot stone. The venison was no mean portion and it was lovely to slice it up and cook it on the stone to perfection. I can honestly say it was the best venison I have ever had. Well done chef. Prices in the hotel for food and drink are reasonable. Wayne takes his business seriously, therefore he does not accept groups or stag/hen parties and if anything is not right he will sort it. He is justifiably proud of what has been achieved in a relatively short space of time. There is an ongoing programme of improvements too. Thanks Wayne and team. Looking forward to our return in November.

Room Tip: Book early to get a sea view room.

Well, what a fantastic review Denise. Thank you so much to you and your husband, we all really appreciate your comments. It's no secret, our ultimate aim is for 'nice' guests to return on a second visit and more if possible, indeed many rebook even before departing to secure the room of their choice (just as you did). A hotel full of happy regular guests is a wonderful prospect for us and it's thanks to people like you that we are getting there. Perfect perfect guests!! See you in November! Wayne on reception x

What can I say Kay? People reading this will never believe it but you were our second ever guest to stay at the hotel right at the beginning and now exactly six months later to the day you've been back a staggering TEN times!! You're truly wonderful guests and we love it when you come to visit. See you again very soon! Wayne on reception x

Just got back from our second trip from North Ocean hotel and it just keeps getting better. We cant praise rhe sraff enough faultless and if there is a problem wayne will come up with a solution. We will have to bring you a cape next time we come and rename you super Wayne. The meals are delicious especially the hot stone options. The only negative for us not for you is your doing so well it will take us till next year before we can book room 12 haha keep up the good work hope to see you all soon

Wonderful review again Stuart and Linda, thank you! It was lovely to see you again and cook for you on both nights. Sorry we couldn't get you room 12 but you're right if someone was to want a suite for a weekend it's looking like December 2014 or early 2015 now! Come and see us again soon!

Stayed here with a group of friends for one night after a Walking Football tournament. Wayne and his staff were very accommodating from the outset. The hotel was extremely comfortable and the rooms were clean. The food was excellent. Parking was available on the streets at the back of the hotel. The North Ocean is located in at the quieter end of Blackpool so if you are heading further into town for instance then the hotel will be nice to come back to as it is away from the hustle and bustle. Close to the piers and the famous tower. I would definitely recommend The North Ocean Hotel to friends and family and would definitely choose this hotel myself again, very friendly and welcoming. :-)

Room Tip: I only stayed one night so difficult to say. It was my first visit to The North Ocean.
