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.

Great for families

Room set up is good for families- kids have there own 'room' with tv and PlayStation. Hire charges for PS3 games was a bit steep as was the DVD hire charges. Breakfast was really good with quality food. Staff were very helpful and attentive. Overall, a good stay and would definitely go back
