I visited this lovely hotel in January of this year and was highly impressed with the room. It was so stylish plus homely at the same time with the fire in the corner, not what I was expecting for a hotel in Blackpool. Brilliant comfy stay with great buffet breakfast.

Great last minute booking to the Big Blue Hotel. Staff were lovely and easy check-in and out. Room was a good size and had everything we needed. Breakfast was included and there was a good selection. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant, delicious. Would definitely return!

As Blackpool goes that has to be one of the best hotels. Lovely family room with kids bunks and a great breakfast. Not the cheapest in Blackpool but one of the nicer ones. We booked through a site and weren't aware that if staying at hotel could get free passes (not rides) to go in the Pleasure Beach - saves...

Never been to Blackpool before. This hotel is right next to the Pleasure Beach, but in spite of that was very quiet in May. Very easy to find, follow signs for Pleasure Beach, the hotel is big and it's blue! If you have kids and are going to spend time at the Pleasure Beach this is perfect. Room had two...

I visited with my elderly parents for a weekend break. They gave us a disabled friendly room with wide door opening and dads mobility scooter could be stored and recharged in a room just off reception. Clean modern and friendly throughout our stay.

Big Blue is by far the best value for money hotel we've stayed in. At check in we had been told our room had been upgraded, still for same price, which meant we got the deluxe which was spacious, clean and well equipped. The Big Blue is also the only hotel that gives you enough "milklets" for your tea and...
