As the name suggests, this property 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. 

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) away. Blackpool Pleasure Beach is adjacent to the hotel and the hotel offers an exclusive guests entrance onto the Pleasure Beach (time restrictions apply).

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 an extra 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.

Having a great previous two days last November we decided to book for three days this time and with this maybe my last time I make a trip to Blackpool due to having a terminal illness we were both disappointed with the amount of noise on two nights with late night noise from adjoining rooms and of people running and shouting from the corridors

The hotel was a real surprise inside, very modern and stylish, nothing like the outside of the building. The food was excellent too. High end restaurant quality, presentation and choice. Our nights stay was great value for money. All staff from the cleaners in the corridors to the restaurant and reception staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The whole experience was a pleasant surprise. I would highly recommend this hotel.
