“February at the Boston”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2013

Enjoyed our stay at the Boston. Staff very friendly and put on fantastic evening entertainment. Food tasted lovely, good portion sizes and served very quickly. Bar prices very good. Renovation of downstairs bar area was lovely and a credit to the hotel. Rooms were clean but was very small with little room to move in the bathroom. Rooms could do with further renovation but were clean and the bed was comfortable. On the beach front and a short tram ride to the town. All in all a nice weekend away. Hotel suited at over 60s.

Brilliant entertainment and food was lovely. Ridiculously quick service in the restaurant and a varied choice of set meals. Location requires a 5-10 minute tram down to the town centre which is a pity. In saying that the tram stop is just across from the hotel and they come on time and are regular. One final note, Blackpool in February is freezing!

just recently returned from the boston hotel having stayed there from 27th dec until the 30th dec
we travelled with my mother in law who cant walk very far and is normally in a wheelchair we found acess fairly good at the hotel and the staff were accomodating as well even thinking ahead and moving us in the restuarant before we even went in

The age group of the guests was mostly 60 plus when we stayed everyone was extremely pleasant and chatty we used to leave the mother in law downstairs after breakfast so we could go and get ready for the day she had a brill time sitting chatting with all the other guests

entetainment was fab bingo for the oldies lol and at least 3 cabaret acts every night bar prices were good a pint was roughly 2.80 and a double smiroff and cola was only 3.00

staff in all areas of the hotel were brilliant especially the blonde waitress she deserves a wage rise she worked 2 12hr shifts in a row and was as cheery at the end of them as she was at the start

meals in my opinion were a bit of a hit or a miss, portion size was a little on the small size but as this hotel caters for the over 60s then that can be explained

overall the holiday was brill and i wouldnt hestitate to return to here

We 100% agree with the review from " silversixty ". We have been going for many years now and quality of service & food are second to none. All the staff, manager Gary, barman Andy, entertainment manager Aideen and Joe in dining room to name but a few are all excellent.The bedrooms were all refurbished last year and the downstairs have been done this year, the hotel looks lovely.But what makes this hotel so good is the truly cosy, warm, and very friendly atmosphere. cant wait to go back. see you all soon xx

'Blackpool's Golden Smile'. That is what you are guaranteed to leave with after staying at The Boston Hotel..
The hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment and has successfully retained the ambience and terrific atmosphere
This was our second visit to the hotel at Christmas time and it speaks for itself when people return year after year. Once again praise must be given to Gary the hotel manager and his staff who tirelessly give 100% effort to ensure every guest enjoys their stay.
'Joe' and his wonderful kitchen staff serve up the food with a smile on their face every day and always have time to chat and share a joke. Be prepared to diet after eating at The Boston because the food is truly delicious, varied and plentiful !!.
Service at the bar is quick and prices are very reasonable and if you don't want alcohol they serve a lovely Cappuccino !!.
The entertainment is first class and most nights three different acts perform with a great variety of songs to sing along and dance to.
Of course this all led by the wonderful 'Aideen' . Having worked in cabaret myself for over 25 years I have seen and met many talented artists over the years but this girl is the epitomy of the word 'entertainment' great voice, great looks, great personality she makes every night party night.
Would I go back ? you bet !!! already booked for Christmas 2013 !!

Room Tip: All rooms have recently been refurbished, we stayed in room 314 third floor which is spacious, comfo...

I am currently here at the boston for christmas and have been since sunday.
The staff try their very best to make your stay more enjoyable. They are very polite and very helpful, you can't fault them. The room on the other hand is small. We are in a twin room and there is no space to move. Also the shower in the bathroom stopped working on christmas eve but was sorted on christmas day.
Food is nice but not great. Apparently the chef maggie has retired recently and since then the food has gone down in quality.

Entertainment is brilliant! Every night they have around 3-4 acts and they are all fantastic, bingo is great and it is easy to win. Aideen is very funny and makes every night a laugh.
If it wasn't for the room being so small and the food lacking a little then i would have gave it a 5.

Room Tip: room 223 and most rooms on the second floor are very small and too hot. Pick a see view, worth the e...
