I have stayed here afew times now and it's always been ok. But this time I was not happy at the amount I had to pay for parking and also the fire alarm went off and no one checked the room's or gave instructions on what to do as written on the bedroom door. Ithink they need to review there fire policy.

Not bad

This is an ok hotel at best - its probably far better than the B&B’s along the beach front but its not up to the usual 4 star standard you would expect. Hotel location is good for the pleasure beach, but the hotel is average at best and the room probably could do with refurb. BEds are big but not comfy as the matresses need replacing! Breakfast is pretty good though.

Great hotel for pleasure beach stay

We were welcomed by friendly and helpful reception staff. Our room had been upgraded to a family room, which was great, wish I had taken the grand children! Great shower, convenient parking and a filling breakfast. Don't make the mistake we made... they offer discounted tickets to the park so better off getting them at the hotel.

Highly Recommended!

Pros: Everything from the location to the food served!
Cons: Nothing
Location: Right next to the park and a short tram ride away from the town centre and tower etc.
This was our 4th stay in Blackpool where previously we've stayed in B&B's. Thought we'd give the Big Blue a try as we always pass it coming out of the station before our mission to find the B&B! Well, we won't look back. Lovely warm welcome by the reception staff, helpful too. The room was perfect, right next to the roller coaster track but not noisy. Breakfast was plentiful and again staff helpful. Great stay and would highly recommend!

Nice hotel close to beach and casino

Great but the big one very close to the rooms on the back of the hotel so would be very noisy in the summer.

As above. However, a good long walk to the Centre. Hotel staff very friendly, room spacious and clean.
