Yet another fabulous stay at the Big Blue, the best hotel in Blackpool, by far. We have stayed here four years now for the Pigeon Weekend in January and always found in this to be clean, warm and pristine in every way. We were upgraded on arrival to a Deluxe room and they really can't do enough for you. Staff...

Absolutely love the big blue, this is the second time I've stayed here and cannot fault it. The staff are brilliant and welcoming, the rooms are immaculate, the beds are amazing. The hotel is nicely out of the way of the busy town but in a perfect location to either get a bus/tram/taxi or walk to the main center. Any...

Stayed here many many times & the standard is maintained at a high level. Great rooms, good value, ace breakfast & a great location. I feel that if every hotel, restaurant maintained this high standard, then we would all be happy!

Stayed here twice now. The hotel staff cannot do enough for you. Rooms are brilliant and as we have 2 children they accommodate for everything we need. My eldest particularly liked the fact that he had bunk beds with his own TV. When we are visiting Blackpool again with the family we will be back. Thanks for the great service.
