Hotels in Blackpool
Table of contents
Blackpool has long been known as a seaside holiday town, much favoured by locals and foreign visitors alike. The tower, touted as the UK's equivalent of the Eiffel Tower (albeit in a satirical fashion!) is a well-recognised land-mark, as are the annual illuminations. While tourism is the biggest and best known industry, there are a number of large companies situated there too. No matter if you are visiting Blackpool on business or pleasure, you will soon find the perfect hotel for your needs.
This fabulous red-brick and white-trimmed Victorian building is welcoming from the moment you set eyes on the exterior. The interior only confirms this with old-fashioned comfort teamed with the latest mod-cons and necessities, with cosy rooms, seaside views and the gorgeous Palm Court Restaurant. Enjoy a mouth-watering traditional English tea, complete with scones and homemade cakes. You can also enjoy the use of the gym, swimming pool, sauna and other wellness features. This attractive hotel is in the heart of Blackpool, close to the North Promenade so you will not have to travel far to find the attractions.
With 93 bedrooms, a comprehensive spa including steam room, spa bath and sauna, and steam room, this beautiful country hotel is handily placed for not only Blackpool, but also Manchester, Liverpool and the Lake District, being around half an hour's drive from all of these.

There are conference facilities so you can host business meetings, and the hotel holds a licence to oversee civil ceremonies.

The hotels we offer in Blackpool cover the full range that our clientele might desire. From businessmen chasing that winning contract to artists looking for inspiration to hen dos and stag parties looking to let their hair down, all types of visitors come to Blackpool: and there is a hotel room for all of them!
If you are exploring the area and want to enjoy some solid five-star comfort, we have a room for you. Likewise, if you are a student, looking to break into the business – be it manufacturing, financial services or anything creative – we have a room for you too! From hedonistic luxury to three-star comfort, we have something for everyone.
If you are coming in high summer, a swimsuit – or shorts and tee-shirts at the very least – are a must. Do not forget sunscreen either, even walking about the Pleasure Beach or riding rollercoasters can expose you to high levels of the sun. While plenty of casual-wear is needed to enjoy the pleasure arcades, the fun fair rides and the piers, you might want to bring a more formal outfit so you can treat yourself to a meal or evening out in one of the high-class venues in the town.
Choose your hotel based on what your needs are: if you need to be central to the town, then one of the promenade-side hotels are your friend, whereas if you need peace and tranquillity, then one of the more distant hotels will better suit your needs.
Blackpool lies on the west coast of England, and is well supplied by trains and coaches. The roads are easy to navigate and there are plenty of secondary roads, should the motorway be shut down for a time. Blackpool has no commercial marina, so there are no direct ferries into the town, but if you are travelling by boat or ship, it is close to a number of suitable ports, from which you can take public transport onwards.

Blackpool had a reputation some years ago, for being a bit of a 'laddish' town, with poor behaviour (mostly alcohol fuelled) dominating headlines and impressions of the town. Recent investments and a crackdown on unchecked drinking has seen major improvements and the atmosphere has returned to a more stately, family friendly and welcoming one.
Blackpool has been continuously occupied for millennia, with 13,500 year-old remains showing that the Roman settlement in the area was a relatively young village, comparatively speaking. Everyone loves the seaside, and this is why Blackpool has always been popular. It still is: come and see for yourself!
