“stones throw from blackpool.... perfect!”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

After planning a last minute trip to Blackpool to see the lights we needed somewhere to stay... Ibis Preston North is perfect! A well known brand, easy to find... in fact we spotted it whilst diving into Blackpool. As 2 single ladies traveling with 3 children and a puppy, 2 family rooms gave us adequate accomodation and everything we needed. Brakfast was a joy... hot and cold buffet with something for even the choosiest child and standard check out being noon menat there was no rush to get organised. We will definatelt recommend to friends and family. thank you

Only a one night stay for the 2 of us as we were attending a wedding at the fabulous bartle hall. Reception staff were lovely on arrival. We were in the most far away room from the reception which was a struggle when we got back from the wedding in a worse for wear state! Room was just fine. Nothing spectacular. Bed was comfy, shower was excellent, televison was a bit limited but the space in the room was good. The food next door at the wacky warehouse pub/restaurant was lovely and worth a visit. 2 pints for a fiver! The bar stayed open all night which was good as when we got back from the wedding at 2am we stayed up with 2 other couples who we were with, enjoying a beer and a game of pool. We got a pizza at 3am which was lovely however it was cold left over hungover pizza which is what it was in the end! Nice hotel would definitely stay here again. :).

Shower pressure not great! May have more to say later when we revisit.Unsure regarding the idea of the shower. Tv not great only having a limited number of channels in this day and age. Breakfast still to be sampled :)

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the above hotel. Staff were extremely helpful and polite; room cleaners equally so.
The food we ate was of a good standard.
We felt that the lounge and restaurant areas could probably do with an upgrade as it looked "tired".
We have stayed at an IBIS HOTEL twice [ 2006 and 2012] in Amsterdam ,which was excellent all round.

Situated right on the M55 motorway and the A6, the Ibis Hotel in Preston (North) is as good a budget hotel as we have found. Pet friendly (for which they don't charge - Travelodge, take note!) and very well priced, we stayed two nights which cost just £93 in total, room only. There is a breakfat buffet which we didn't use but which smelled wonderful!

It is not well signposted and located behind some dense shrubbery so it can be difficult to find - my advice is to follow for the (very well signposted) Wacky Warehouse restaurant next door, which is also a very good place to eat - just £5.99 for a curry and a pint!

The car park is the only thing I can criticise - the speed bumps are ridiculously high and can cause damage to your car unless you're careful.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review on Trip advisor. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay, as I am sure my team will be when I pass on your comments.
Please accept my sincerest apologise for any inconvenience caused by the loss of directional road signs to Ibis Preston North, I can assure you that I am in regular contact with our local council in order to improve this situation.
The car park speed bump is design with the hotel, and the public house next door, guest’s safety in mind and to encourage drivers to drive carefully around our car park, it is possible to avoid the speed bump, if necessary, by driving along the top edge (furthest from the buildings) of our car park towards the exit.
I thank you again for your comments and hope to welcome you back again soon.

This hotel is a joke. Firstly we asked for a room next to the groom who would be checking in a bit later, gave his name put the guy on the desk was clearly not interested and did not take anything down,and they put him on a different floor. We paid for breakfast the next morning and had to wait about 15-20 minutes for them to bring out 6 sausages and 6 rashers of bacon. there were at least 6 other guests waiting for the food to come out so as you can imagine, this went in an instant. Then to top it all off, depsite paying in advance, they took the money off my card a seconf time. This was 3 weeks ago and despite phones cal and e-mails to both the manager at the hotel and Accor I have not had my money back yet. It is a total disgrace and i would never reccommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Do not get one on the motorway side - it is very noisy and even with double windows you can still he...

I am sorry to hear that you didn’t find the service at our hotel Ibis Preston North up to your expectations. We pride ourselves on our staff training and availability, so this is something I will be looking into personally. However this is not the service my team normally provide as you will be able to see from other reviews. The card asked for at the time of check in, is a security measure to help prevent fraud and is not charged a second time, I apologise if this was not explained to you. I hope you will give us the opportunity in the future to provide you with the standards we are known for. . Kind regards, Beverley Derbyshire
