Advantages: Comfort, quality and location
Disadvantages: Expensive compared to nearby hotels
We tend to visit Blackpool quite regularly and we normally stay at a premier inn hotel as you know you will generally get a good nights sleep, much needed after a hard day at the fun fair!
We had read some great reviews about this hotel on trip advisor and the pictures looked nice too so we decided to pay that little bit extra to stay here. It is a four star boutique hotel and you do get what you pay for.
Our room had a lovely huge bed and our older two daughters had their own 'bedroom' with a tv each - no arguing over who gets to choose the channel, bliss. We also had a cot in the room for the baby yet there was still plenty of room for the five of us.
We had upgraded our room and so it overlooked the pleasure beach and you could see the big one roller coaster zoom past the room several times, which the girls loved and actually at one point sat waiting for it to go past.
You have a tv and a desk in the room and along with the standard tea and coffee sachets they had also given us some pleasure beach shortbread biscuits which tasted delicious, the kids had them before bed with their hot chocolate.
I can truly say I had a great nights sleep and was so comfortable I did not want to get out of bed despite the 5.30am wakeup call from the baby. We also had breakfast which was included in the price and was an all you can eat style so you can choose cooked, continental or even a bit of both if your hungry!
We didn't have a drink in the evening as we had the baby but I did notice the bar prices seemed a little expensive.
We enjoyed this hotel so much that we have booked to go back for the nickelodeon 12 days of Christmas offer. This includes your room (2 adults and 3 children), breakfast and wristbands and we have paid £135.00, we have got the upgraded room but there is another room for the same package for £120.00, and we booked this direct through the hotels website. Payment is taken at the time of booking.
The location is great as it is right next to the pleasure beach, directly facing the promenade so very handy and it does have its own entrance to the pleasure beach just for guests.
Can't wait to go back there... I am counting the 'sleeps' with the kids.
Summary: Definitely worth a stay, luxury and comfortable and so close to the pleasure beach
