FAQs about hotels in Blackpool








Beside the Seaside, Beside the Sea

A favored vaction spot since the Victorian era, Blackpool is a traditional English seaside town. Amusement arcades and crazy golf courses line the promenade and dotted between them are plenty of places to pick up fresh fish ‘n’ chips and Blackpool rock.

On the 5-mile sandy beach, children can enjoy Punch and Judy shows and donkey rides. Old-fashioned entertainment at its best. At the other end of the scale is the Blackpool Pleasure Beach, a fairground complex comprising a variety of rides, including The Big One - once the world’s tallest and steepest rollercoaster. They actually had to get permission from nearby Blackpool Airport to erect it!

More seaside pursuits are on the town’s 3 piers, one of which is Grade II listed. However, the most recognizable landmark is the Blackpool Tower which houses a circus, 4D cinema and a world-renowned ballroom, to name a few. Modeled on the Eiffel Tower, it is spectacularly lit during the annual Blackpool Illuminations, when the whole town is bathed in bright lights. The trams plying the prom are also lit. Look out for the one shaped like a ship.

A popular bachelor and bachelorette destination, Blackpool has accommodations ranging from North Shore hotels to South Shore B&Bs - see Booking.com for the best choice.

    Blackpool has so much to offer.

    Blackpool has so much to offer. The Winter Gardens for live shows, The piers for arcade action and big wheel etc. to the Hounds shopping centre, The Yorkshire Fryery for your fish and chips, or head to the promenade for a stroll by the seaside and possibly spot "A Walk on the Wild Side" local live YouTuber who gives all the lowdown on Blackpool live every other day!! A few miles away you might want to enjoy watching some highly competitive International RC Yacht racing at Fleetwood Model Yacht and power boat club (just a walk along Laidleys Walk). Or maybe take in some more shopping at Cleveleys along with a coffee, cake or meal at one of the many restaurants. Don't forget to buy your electric tram ride tickets for an unforgettable ride all the way to Cleveleys or fleetwood, then back down as far as StarGate (Not the SG 1 haahaa) although there are sci-fi exhibitions occuring throughout the year at Blackpool. They have a great Zoo too! And a great Hospital if you end up there, like I did a few month ago! Hope this helps you all to have fun. As with any large City area:- Just beware any random FAKE beggers asking for cash. Justs say "dont carry cash mate". The REAL ones never approach or ask you for money". If you feel inclined, wait until you spot the REAL ones who sit around on steps. They wont bite - not so far! Highly unlikely that YOU will be bothered, or even see any homeless hanging around in any event. We have been coming about 3 times a year, for many years now. The locals are really friendly and accomodating if you need help in finding your way. The staff on the trams are outstanding - a shout out to Chelsea and her collegues here! :-) Have fun in Blackpool folks! :-)

    The pleasure beach is good fun but expensive especially for 1 adult with 2 small children - A lot of rides only allow children with an adult so these are not available if there is only one adult in the party yet the adult still pays full price but can't go on everything. The sealife centre was good but quite quick to get through, the staff were very good here. The sandcastle was great value and the coffee shop was good value as well. Parking is a bit awkward for here and we ended up paying more for parking than for entrance in to the water park. Bella Italia on Victoria street was really nice for food. Wetherspoon by the Tower was cheap for food but it was awful. Wild west diner was nicer than wetherspoon.

    It was a pleasure to visit the beach , to play some fun games , the Jack's captain pub was very nice , very good food. The Blackpool tower ballroom was impressing .I would recommend to go to visit it or to see a show .

    A large number of the hotels on the seafront are closed and look derelict. Those that are open need a lot of money spending on them. Some of the hotels that are empty look like they are housing people who are homeless / refugees, but definitely don't look to be in a fit state to house anyone

    This hotel is not far from Blackpool North rail station so is well placed for the town as well as the seafront. I found the place really clean , warm and comfortable. The breakfast was great, very well cooked and served on hot plates. The staff were extremely helpful and very nice people. I’m a person of reduced mobility travelling around in a mobility scooter, and that was not a problem and I received excellent help during my stay. If you plan to stay in Blackpool you would be hard pushed to find a better place to stay !

It was in a great location for the pleasure beach, it was SPOTLESSLY clean. Had great facilities (washing machine dryer microwave and fridge etc in guest services room), breakfast was great. The staff couldn't do enough, very friendly and welcoming. Would 100% recommend and definitely be back in the future.

Did not use the breakfast facilities as I do not eat alot in a morning and like to chose what I want the day I awake up. Downstairs at the hotel they have a grea bar which sells real ales and has music and seating which w\as very nice. Dont drink beer myself but thought it a good idea to add to the good idea of that bar.

    This hotel is wonderful, Wendy keeps a spotlessly clean hotel with parking, cosy rooms and a beautifully cooked breakfast each morning. Our family of 5 was welcomed by Wendy and felt cared for throughout our stay. The hotel is in a wonderful quiet location with Pleasure Beach and South Pier seconds away and a tram stop across street to help you venture Blackpool. Would highly recommend and will hopefully stay again.
