I visited the Boston hotel in October of this year primarily to see the famous Blackpool Illuminations. The hotel is situated right on the promenade with easy access to transportation. The hotel itself is older as are most hotels in Blackpool? The rooms were very clean and well equipped. the maid service was prompt. The food was excellent with plenty of choices for each palate even a vegetarian option each evening. The entertainment was good with lots of songs and jokes. What really makes this,hotel is the staff with a special mention about Lisa the barmaid who went above and beyond making us feel very welcome. She even performed a dance routine one night .I would recommend this hotel to families with small children and older adults as it is situated in the quieter end of the promenade and does not have a pool. All in all a nice place

Stayed at the hotel with my mum sister daughter (5yr old) and my son (1yr old). On arrival the staff were very welcoming and were very polite and helpful throughout our stay. Our room was very clean n tidy also the public areas in hotel were clean to. All the waiting staff in the dining room were friendly and helpful to. Having 2young children with me I didn't want to be out to late at night so we came back for the entertainment which was good to. The only thing was the location of the hotel it is located away from the tower and pleasure beach etc however there are trams into town and taxis are reasonable. The hotel location suited me as my kids could get a good night sleep away from al the noise of people out on the town and being drunk. As a whole i couldnt fault the hotel itself but if i was to complain about something id say the lift was an issue as it only holds 2 people and i was struggling for me and my pram to fit in the lift. This hotel would be most suited to families, couples and older travellers, wouldn't recommend to stag, hen, or young groups of adults.

Lovely hotel which has been refurbished since our last visit. Bar area & reception are spacious and modern. Rooms have been redecorated and en suites refurbished. Some rooms are quite small, but are clean, with tea & coffee making facilities. Rooms are cleaned every day, but towels are only changed on a Friday & Monday, so bear this in mind. The meals were excellent, with a nice choice for breakfast and dinner. No complaints about the food. Entertainment was good, with a couple of singers/comedians on every night, as well as bingo. Tram passes are available at reception for a £10 each person refundable deposit and are invaluable, as the hotel is in the quieter north side of the resort. They can also be used on the local buses.
All staff were very friendly, helpful and are a credit to the hotel. Only one small complaint was the heat in the hotel! I realise it was October, but it was mild and the bar area & restaurant were quite uncomfortable after a while. A lot of people commented on this, and even the non smokers were going outside to cool down! Maybe just turn it down a bit, please? All in all we enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend. We will be back.

Dear ann008

Many thank for taking the time to post such a detailed review,this will help others plan their holiday at The Boston.

For the time being we have kept the heating on but turned down the radiators on the ground floor which still allows all our guests to control the heating in the rooms with the radiator thermostat.

Hope to see you back again soon.

First time in Boston and first experience of travelling with large group. Room and entertainment very good, service by staff excellent. Wife is coeliac and requires gluten free diet, normally a nightmare but hotel catered for this admirably with multiple choices. Would like to see this service more widely publicised on brochures etc. Overall excellent hotel.

It was nice to hear that we managed to meet your wife's dietary requirements in the restaurant and that you found the service excellent.

Just a little note for anyone reading this response, although never an issue for our chef any special dietary requirements are always best to be mentioned at the time of booking.

This allows us to offer a varied choice of meals.

We look forward to welcoming you again.
