Terrific family break

All staff were very friendly and helpful. We were there with our 2 grandchildren who had a fantastic time. Found Blackpool very quiet although hotel was busy. Location is good for Pleasure Beach but a little far out from everything else.

Clean Rooms, Right Location

It was good to arrive and get a car parking space. The reception staff were very good even though it was busy. The room was spacious and clean with a large comfortable bed. The location was just where we wanted to be and would be excellent for anyone wishing to go to the large Pleasure Beach. We returned for an evening meal and were disapointed but breakfast was very good unless you wanted a continental Cheese & Meat choice. Check out was good and all the staff were friendly and helpful.

Quality family hotel

Hotel is lovely. Family rooms are great although the bunk beds are quite short if your child tall. Breakfast buffet is excellent. Food in restaurant at night is quality but quite expensive. Would definitely recommend this hotel if visiting Blackpool as close to tram stop for easy access to all attractions.

Enjoyable stay

Excellent location. Easy access to trams. Will deffinatly stay again. The only minor point to mention was the noise from the pleasure beach between 11am and 5pm, this did not bother us in the slightest - it added to the Blackpool experience. Recommended.

Perfect for the Pleasure beach

Stayed last year and did the same again for a seaside treat with our two girls aged 7 & 5. The family rooms with the bunk beds are perfect when the girls are this age. Hotel clean, staff friendly and efficient and rooms big enough for family of 4. Nice buffet breakfast. The pleasure beach access is great and the walk around passes for the night before are a nice touch, If you are visiting the pleasure beach this is the hotel to book.

Great for couples and families

Staff all very polite couldn't do enough for you! Rooms were amazing very spacious and we loved the little soaps in bathroom and biscuits with tea/coffee facilities were a lovely touch and the welcome book was a great help! Food was out of this world scrambled eggs to die for although had to wait on our last morning for a table it is defiantly worth the wait! Only things that would have made this stay better would have been if there was a swimming pool and a spa/beauty rooms for adults to have a relaxing massage / treatments and I'd it was closer to middle of Blackpool... Although saying that there is a tram station directly outside the hotel and if the hotel was closer it may be more noisy so it is proberbly a good thing that it is further away! would most defiantly return again!

Clean, comfortable & cheerful

Had a lovely stay at the Big Blue...., found staff to be very friendly & accommodating. Our room was very clean & comfortable, therefore it served it's purpose. Would very much recommend..., those traveling with children will be glad to know that the rooms come with bunk beds in so a family of four will fit just nicely!
