We only had one night at Big Blue but it was really good. Big family room with all facilities and looking out onto the Fairground. The evening meal was surprisingly good. Would definitely stay there again.

just got back from a weekend in blackpool.a place ive visited many times. but up until now most of the hotels ive stayed at have been abysmal; not so with the big blue the room a superior deluxe was excellent,the staff couldnt do enough for you, ranging from advice about resort to supplying us with buckets of ice to take to room. we stayed 3rd feb to 5th feb with a meal on friday night although we had a set menu it was no problem picking from the a, la, carte which came at no extra cost to us.breakfast were excellent but make sure its included because its a tad expensive otherwise.my advice is if you are thinking of a weekend away in blackpool this is the place to stay.

Its simple, if you want a top quality hotel and service at a fair price in Blackpool then look no further. Having stayed in Blackpool at least once every year for the last 40 odd years this is one of only a handful of properties that deserve to be commented on and called a quality hotel. Style and comfort from start to finish, superb food, great room and good service. I can only say try it, you wont be dissapointed.

Reviewed 30 January 2012

I was really worried about arriving at the Big Blue having stayed at various awful hotels in Blackpool. I needn't have worried.
Check in was excellent, the staff were friendly, smart and helpful. Our room was spacious with a large double bed and was absolutely spotless. Very well appointed with an iron and board, hairdryer and a large mirror, also a lovely flat screen TV, blackout curtains, air con and a nicely filled tea tray - no scummy kettle or old sugars! Plenty of wardrobe space and for one which can be so rare in hotels, lots of nice big hangers!
Bathroom was modern and so clean. Loads of spare towels and some nice toiletries. Great power shower and bath and lots of mirror and storage space.
Although we had not asked for it, we had an extra part to our room where there were bunkbeds, wall mounted toys and two flat screen TV's at bnunk height, which I can only imagine would have been a welcome thought for families with tired out children.
We had a few drinks in the bar whichhad a really elegant feel to it. A nice range of drinks as well. Barmen were lovely and helpful. The food menu looked great and even though we didn't eat there the food looked good. The menu was served until ten and then there were after dinner snacks available as well as veniding machines on the corridor (there is also a cash machine available)
Breakfast was lovely, nice range of cereals, bread, fresh fruit and the typical full English. We went at the "busy" time but it was well organised and we didn't feel hassled or stressed.
Safe parking which was key coded for safety.
I thought it was a great hotel, especially for Blackpool and would certainly stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor or above as the ground floor looks right onto the carpark.
