    Friendly and helpful staff, always approciable for any questions. The facilities were good, hygene and cleanliness excellent in the room and the air con was very useful.

    Annoying advert when you turn on the tv and a little chiller/fridge would have been handy.

  • Couple
    8.8

    I loved the decor in the bar and the restaurant very modern. I also like how bedroom felt like a home away from home. Staff were very friendly and helpful!

    I didn't like the bed sheets they were too rough on my skin and have sore skin on my legs and shoulders felt like waking up with sunburn. After four days of being back at home my skin has finally got a bit better.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    I found the staff very friendly and helpful. although drink prices at the hotel was very expensive. and would have though room service would have been in with the price. I would advice it to some of my friends.

  • Family with children

  • Family with children

  • Couple
    7.8

  • Couple
    7.8

    The room was nice and big and the bed was comfortable.

    Shower was hard to control as it was fixed to wall, and water went everywhere.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Generally nice hotel, good location for the pleisure beach

    Poor lighting ,Location too far away from main clubs/pubs in town, breakfast not included in price, £ 8 each too expensive

  • Single
    7.4

    The big blue is the best hotel. in blackpool which isn't hard As the rest are dreadful if you really need to go then stay here Rooms are comfortable and dinner is average old school style Car park is free and free wifi but very low signal the breakfast was very good

    The bar was very expensive which was a suprise for blackpool A double mixer and draft you could buy a bottle cheaper in a supermarket Stayed here 3 times because of work and every time the bathroom Smelled really awful

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Brilliant location. Menu could do with a few more selections Expecially on the 24hour room service, but what was there was nice and kids loved it. Hope to be back again perhaps later this year which surely speaks volumes for a family with two young children, 3 and 6.

    As it is a family room perhaps a few books or games for the children and a small table. But that is a very minor point as the kids love your room layout and had a ball. Also the food dispencing machine could do with more regular filling as it was amost empty by the second night and wasn't refilled.

  • Single
    7.8

    The room was comfortable (I was upgraded on arrival to be fair). Hotek was clean a good value for money.

    Was woken up by workmen painting/maintaning the windows in the morning.
