      Amazing Stay

      Room was amazing, view of the Pleasure Beach and the windows cut out the sound.
      The food was very tasty and a brilliant choice.
      Would stay there again.

      Okay but some problems

      from

      This hotel had just opened when we stayed here for the first time in June last year. It is a beautiful hotel. Clean and tidy with a nice but expensive restaurant. We stayed in a family suite which would be fine for small children but the bunk beds are tiny and my two children (one of whom is only 9) could not lie down flat in them. Very good view of the pleasure beach (could wave to people on the Big Dipper). The second time we stayed we got a sea view room (which was infact the car park view). Had problems with over charging us and had a carry on getting our money back - put this down to new staff getting used to a new system. All in all a good hotel if slightly pricey!

      we had a brill weekend in this hotel with entrance to the pleasure beach as part of the package, and now we are looking to come back. my daughter actully forgot to have an attitude she enjoyed herself so much.

      Haven't seen better! Immaculate

      from

      The Hotel is new built only in April 2003. It location is on the far

      south end of blackpool in the grounds of Blackpool pleasure Beach.

      The views are amazing.. sea views if at the front, and views over the theme park from the back. The pepsi max Big one goes past the windows.... you are that close.

      The Hotel is great for people wanting to be close to the park.

      Prices do vary we paid 70.00 for a standard room midweek, which for

      illuminations season in a very nice hotel is reasonable.

      The Hotel has a bar, restuarant, gym, and business facilties,

      everything else is in the park.

      The rooms are designed very well, quality furniture, nice downlighters

      etc.

      The only thing that put a downer on things was the service from

      reception was a bit rough. No smiles there!!!.

      Good, but__

      from

      The Big Blue Hotel is great, much better than the usual Blackpool hotels. We stayed at the beginning of August 2003 - 1 adult and three children - well 2 teenagers. 1 child. The rooms are ideal for couples with small children, but my 13 year old was not impressed with the very small bunk bed - he's not that tall but he couldn't stretch out his legs!

      Also, we were unable to rent a playstation, we rented a DVD which didn't work- someone came to the room 4 times to try to get the player to work,but had to give up!

      Fantastic

      from

      Hotel was fantastic, The breakfast buffet was great, a good selection available The room had been designed with families in mind. The childrens sleeping area just out of sight of the main room was great DVD player in the room that the children could watch in each of their beds, while you watched something different on TV. I have already recommended the hotel to a number of people.

      Very good, but.........

      from

      My partner and i stayed for two nites Wednesday 9th July to Friday 11th July. While there we could not fault the quality or service, iam very dasappointed with the aftercare service though. We were overcahrged by 16 and i have telephoned twice only to be told the first time by Andy on reception that a cheque will be sent to me, (i telephoned the day i got home Friday 11th July 2003) after 3 weeks when it didnt arrive i phoned again to be told that a manager will phone me the next day, again no one phoned me. I will be putting this all in writing as well as iam most annoyed now that iam doing alot of running around. As i said apart from this business i couldnt fault the hotel or staff

      Would recommend the Big Blue Hotel

      from

      Stayed in this hotel for one night in July 2003. Nice big rooms, lovely separate area for children with magnetic games on the wall and TV each for top and bottom bunk. Paid 80 for family suite which I considered good value for 2 adults and 1 child. Hotel was clean (but not spotless!), good amenities in rooms, pleasant staff, free parking. Would definitely stay here again.

      Fantastic

      from

      The big blue hotel is just what Blackpool needs. The hotel is right on the doorstep of the Pleasure Beach and the seafront. The rooms are great executive rooms have a fireplace, dvd player and a Jacuzzi bath.

      The restaurant serves up an excellent buffet breakfast with everything you would want. Don't go anywhere else pay the little extra and go here.

      Brilliant hotel

      from

      Big Blue Hotel is situated right at the South entrance of the Pleasure Beach - in fact the Pepsi Max Coaster passed our window less than 10 feet away - not noisy at night though - rides stopped by 8pm. Had family suite - one large room which had alcove big enough for bunk beds and a tv for each bed and large snakes and ladders board on the wall!

      Hotel spotless, staff very friendly, restaurant food wonderful.

      Couldn't recommend it highly enough - hope to be going back.

      Superb

      from

      The New Hotel on the site of the old Pleasure Beach South Car Park. Despite it not being officially opened this hotel is already well up to speed, offering superb rooms, food and above all service. Will have no hesitation in returning on my next Blackpool trip !

      Juliet says the team arrived safely last night in Kampala after an 'adventurous' journey. Think of them today as they adjust to the heat and the culture. Today is planned to be a 'going to Church' day before they start work tomorrow. Their flight from Manchester yesterday morning was delayed by an hour so let's hope that their bags (there were a lot of them!) made the connection at Heathrow safely as ...

      Great news - thanks to Simon's persistence we heard last night that we are being given some HIV and malaria test kits by a friendly supplier. This has gone right to the wire as the kits are being delivered on Friday (tomorrow) i.e the day before most of the team departs fro Uganda!

      ... We went for the sledge first. Brody was off and into it straight away, big smile on his face and hung around the adults for one trip - then he was just running up, and flying down, the sledge, the luge, the donuts, the mini donuts, the luge, the luge, the sledge.....he was effusively happy! A good start for the snow week! Marni, faced the sledge with brave and focused determination. Her face was serious all the way. Once ...

      First event was a puddle which had iced over and then we had to stop at the railway crossing. The train that went by had a roof covered in snow...but the kids missed it! When we made it to the seafront (Marni still walking, although we had done 1,2,3....swing! - Brody is just too heavy though.) There was snow in the Lakes District hills. Yeah...very exciting. We walked along the seafront and went into the first pub we found ...
