Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


As the name suggests, this hotel is big (it has 157 rooms) and it is painted an unmissable shade of blue. The hotel is just off the Promenade on Blackpool's South Shore, less than 15 minutes by tram from the centre of this lively seaside resort. The property is next to Blackpool Pleasure Beach (open on weekends only February-March and daily from 1 April) -- the Big One, which is the UK's tallest rollercoaster, provides a backdrop to the hotel and can be seen from a number of its bedrooms. 

There are plenty of attractions nearby, including Sandcastle Waterpark -- the UK's largest indoor waterpark -- less than 10 minutes' walk from the hotel. The iconic Blackpool Tower, which was built in 1894 and has an observation deck offering views of the seafront, is less than 10 minutes' drive (or 15 minutes' tram ride) from the property.

The hotel has a fully equipped studio gym (free for guests) and services including personal training, massages and sports injury therapy are available by appointment for a fee. The Blues Bar & Brasserie is open all day for drinks and dining. There's a children's menu and kids can get involved, preparing their own pizzas, tortilla wraps and ice cream sundaes. Afternoon tea is served in the bar area or on the patio, weather permitting. There's an à la carte evening menu, and during the day, a bistro-style menu of light bites, sandwiches and meals in the informal café bar.

Bedrooms are decorated with Designers Guild fabrics. There are family rooms with separate children's areas featuring bunk beds and PlayStation 3 consoles. Spacious Deluxe suites have separate lounge areas with contemporary fireplaces and Juliet balconies overlooking the Pleasure Beach. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
