The Ramsay Hotel
Travel Blogs from Blackpool
Our first stop back in England was at Blackpool. The kids had seen a B&B show - one of many real-life documentary shows we had to endure on Scottish TV - that had inspired them to want to see Blackpool! What a mistake... ! I cannot see the attraction for holiday goers. There are miles & miles of small hotels crammed up against each other …
Today we travelle to Liverpool to see Craig's beloved Liverpool play at Anfield. Unfortunately we lost 2-0 to Southampton, and we received a parking ticket! But the boys all had a wonderful time. The seats were great, the atmosphere was good (esp during 'you'll never walk alone'). We had dinner in the 'Boot Room Cafe' afterwards, which was a great way to end ...
... England and then had to catch another train on platform 7 to Liverpool and once again waited about 15 min. And another hour later we got to Liverpool. Our hotel was just a few blocks away (thanks Susan) so we got rid of our luggage and I was starved for some real food so walked to The Hub bar and kitchen , walked around to look at shops BUT they were all closing at 6;30! I didn't realize Europe closed so early! I guess it gives me time to blog this. Good nite at 7:03pm ...
Today I booked & paid for my flights to Australia. One way ticket! It feels amazing to say that..."one way ticket" Thinking about it fills me with a whole bag of emotions- excitement, anxiety, fear, happiness. The list goes on. It's booked, I'm going, ...
... popular in Victorian times, but looking a bit worse for wear now. Our Hotel has a great view over the Promenade and the hotel staff are all very friendly. The streets are lit up each night with the "Illuminations", a colourful display of street lighting which have appeared every year for the last 101 years, except during each of the World Wars. Another feature of the town is the Tower, modelled after the other tower in ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
In a whole street of hotels this looked clean and well presented with easy parking. It was just as clean and well presented inside with the added benefit of being a non-smoking hotel. The owners were very kind and helpful and were happy for us to look at the rooms before booking and offered a very reasonable price for the night. The bed was one of the most comfortable I'd slept on in in over a month of travelling. The cost included a full English Breakfast in the dining room - good meal. The area was quiet at night and the glazed windows blocked out any street noise. If you have to stay in Blackpool (which i didn't like) then Ramsay's is the place to go. Go and find somewhere to eat at Lytham Saint- Anne's.

Professional yet friendly
I have just returned from a four night stay at The Ramsay Hotel, Blackpool.
The North Shore location is tranquil in comparison to the hustle and bustle of "The Golden Mile". However, trams and buses make access to central Blackpool very easy.
Julie & Vicki run The Ramsay in an efficient, professional manner. The quality of food accommodation and cleanliness is exemplary. At the same time Julie & Vicki treat each guest as an individual: Their friendly hospitality began when I made my booking, and continued throughout my stay. I was greeted by my first name as I entered the hotel for the first time, and they both wished me a safe journey home when I left.
All in all a great place to stay in Blackpool, and wonderful value for money too!!
Just returned from a three day visit to The Ramsay Hotel. Hotel was very clean and comfortable, our room on the first floor was very spacious and well appointed. Food was very good and served in a very nice dining room. The owners Julie and Vikki were very friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble to them. We would certainly recommend this hotel and hope to visit again.
I stayed with my husband and my 4 year old daughter. Nothing was too much trouble and the hotel was so warm and friendly. Rooms immaculate and everywhere so clean. We all enjoyed the lovely home cooked food. The Hotel was in a perfect location near the tram stop and over the road from the beach.
We will definately be back in the summer and will not stay anywhere else. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes a home from home place to stay.
First Class Hotel
Myself & my children stayed here for our Easter break. The breakfast was great, the rooms very clean & comfortable. Staff very friendly & went our of their way to make our stay enjoyable.
Would definately return and will be recommending to my friends & family.
A unknown gem
We stopped at the hotel after reading the reviews, we had a warm welcome, the hotel is very clean and the rooms are of a very high standard and very clean.
We stopped on a B & B basis and that was excellent to.
The location was great the open top bus stopped outside the hotel also the tram is oppisite, but we walked to the tower took about 15 mins.
The hotel is family run and so friendly and could'nt do enough for us.
I had to drag my husband to Blackpool because the last time we came we didn't stop in a very nice hotel, but the Ramsay has put Blackpool breaks back into our agenda.
Will be back for the lights!!!
Fab hotel, what a refreshing change
We have just returned from a long weekend at the Ramsay Hotel in Blackpool. The staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The cooked breakfast and evening meal was delicious. Everywhere was immaculately clean and tidy. Very reasonable prices. Would highly recommend the sea view bay fronted bedroom.
Will definitely be going back for the illuminations.

I was really worried about finding the right hotel for my husband and myself for a short break but so glad i found the Ramsay. It was very comfortable, very clean and tastefully decorated. The food was good too. the staff are friendly and we will be back again at xmas. Thanks Elaine X Eric for a very pleasant stay.
We could not believe a hotel in Blackpool could be this nice. We chose this hotel based on the previous good reviews (as Blackpool hotels arent renowned for quality) and I am glad that we did. The hotel is well decorated & furnished and spotlessly clean which is helped by the fact it is a non smoking establishment. Although my husband smokes, he even admitted it was nicer staying where no smoking is allowed and didnt mind having to bob out for his 'fix'. The bar is well stocked and comfortable and the games room is an added bonus if the weather isnt too great. We were only B & B basis but based on this we can say that the food was excellent and would have no doubts about booking half board next time. Also, forget any stories that you may have heard about grisly Blackpool hotel proprieters - the owners are friendly, welcoming and genuinely want you to enjoy your holiday.
Stayed at the hotel for our Golden wedding Anniversary. Fantastic hotel, good food, beautiful rooms and the owners are really friendly. Great location for all attractions.
Have already booked again for later on in the year. Would definately reccommend the Ramsay Hotel to anyone.
Fantastic location, tram opposite, really peaceful. Owners are real nice. Rooms are luxurious.
