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.

Historical Traveler Reviews Big Blue Hotel Blackpool
Okay but some problems
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
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
The only thing that put a downer on things was the service from
reception was a bit rough. No smiles there!!!.
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!
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.........
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
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.
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.
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.
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 !
