    Good location but a few teething problems

    The hotel was in a really good location next to pleasure beach. However we did not receive any water on arrival like the other rooms, we requested a cot for the baby which wasn’t there upon arrival, the tv didn’t work the whole time we were there but the room service menu was on the tv due to COVID so we could not get it. Breakfast was good and hot but not much choice. PlayStations we’re advertised but charged a minimum of £5 to use

    Clean hotel. It’s our fifth stay here. Free upgrade to family room as I had requested a fairground view. Fantastic for children who get to see the rides being tested in a morning. Breakfast is plentiful and has everything you could ask for. Friendly staff. Rooms are quiet despite children. Lovely stay and we will be back next year.

    Could’ve been better!

    This was our third stay in this hotel. Good facilities, breakfast was very good and the evening meal wasn’t too bad either! There is a VIP entrance at the back of the hotel which is handy for entering the park. There were 2 major issues: we were on the 2nd floor and it felt like there was a herd of elephants directly above us and the noise didn’t really calm until closer to 2300hrs. Not ideal when you have 2 young kids! Secondly there was a car park charge of £15 and we needed to vacate by 12 Noon. I had not noticed a charge on the hotel information and not something we’d experienced before. Your better off parking on the road directly opposite. Overall we had a good time at the Pleasure Beach but may consider the newer more modern Boulevard Hotel next door next time!

    Reception staff really friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Cannot fault it. Breakfast was fantastic all staff really helpful & the food itself was great. Good portions and plenty of options! Stayed to visit Blackpool pleasure beach the next day, perfect distance but when you checkout you also have to move the car which is something to bare in mind because the other nearby car park is £8. Would definitely stay again.

    Hotel was very clean and staff were both helpful and friendly. We asked for a special view and we got it. Breakfast was very good too. We dined at the hotel on the first evening and all meals were good. Service was fast and friendly. We had a slight problem getting the games console to work but the staff sorted it very quickly. Excellent experience and well done to the staff at the big blue who did their best to make our stay the best it could be in this strange time.
