The Savoy Hotel (Blackpool)
My family and I have stayed in the Savoy Hotel, Blackpool four times in the last 10 or so years.
* Location *
The Savoy is conveniently located on Queens Promenade. It is in walking distance from Blackpool Tower and the main shopping area, or you could catch a tram. There is a tram stop just across the road from the hotel, so it really is in an ideal tourist location. The illuminations are on either side of the hotel, so night time makes for a pleasant walk if you are visiting in autumn (when the illuminations are switched on). The Pleasure Beach is not really in walking distance, especially if you have young children, but it is only a short tram ride away.
* The Hotel *
The Savoy is three stars, and is very grand looking, both inside and from the outside. The check in process was very smooth and without problems, like the booking process had been. All four times we have stayed in the same type of room, a master bedroom and a twin room connected by a door. However, on our latest visit, the twin room had changed slightly: instead of two twins, there was a single bed and a bunk bed. There is one television and one bathroom, along with coffee making facilities. The views from both bedrooms were lovely - you could see the lights, the beach and the promenade.
Breakfast was very nice. There was a choice of cooked or continental, ranging from bacon and sausages to toast and tea.
There was a car park outside the hotel, but it was full on our last visit. However, there was a cheap one close to the hotel, so it wasn't a problem.
In some of our past visits we have found the hotel to be a little bit dirty, but nothing major, just clumps of dust on the skirting boards and a few dodging looking marks on the carpet.
* Prices *
We have always paid for our holidays at the Savoy with Tesco Clubcard vouchers. I have just checked online, and the prices are apparently from £30 per night per person. The cost of the adjoining room we always have is normally over £100 per night.
* Conclusion *
A great hotel, a perfect base for exploring Blackpool's many tourist attractions.
