After our bus tour of Europe we had a two night stay in London. First night was pretty quiet after our exhausting bus tour. Woke up the next morning and found our way to the red bus tour. only trouble was the police boarded the bus and told everyone to get off and they barracaded off the street with the bus right in the middle!! very scary they had …
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 ...

Historical Traveler Reviews New President Hotel Blackpool
we had already paid a deposit and after reading some of the previous reviews we stated to have concerns to the hotel, after 3 telephone conversations to confirm our rooms had been allocated. we arrived on the 24th oct as arranged. the keys for the 3 rooms we booked 1 double with sea view and 2 singles for our son & daughter were given to us at reception where they asked for the full balance straight away, i refused to do this but instead left my driving licence while we looked at the rooms, it was just as well because one room already had some one in it, the double room had no seaview, and the third one was so small even for one person, we voiced our displeasure to the guy on reception. who seemed unable to give us an explanation, he offered us our deposit back which we were quite surprised and we quickly left feeling quite relieved. if this is the new president hotel, i'm glad i never stayed in the old one
Having just spent the weekend staying in the President Hotel I can honestly say I have never been anywhere like it in my life.
My partner and I took my two year old son to see the illuminations. We booked a room with a cot for my son to sleep in. When we got there all seemed ok until we got to our room. It was a back room that seemed to overlook the staff room. It was freezing cold and dirty and there was no cot. It had a shower tray with a curtain and when you turned the shower on water went everywhere. We complained and were moved to another family room. It had a nice view if the windows were clean. Apart from that it was still unsuitable. There was still no cot, so my son slept in the very bent bunk beds. The bed we slept in was completely worn out. The whole room had a very dirty feel. Not wanting to complain anymore we stayed there the night, to find terrible noise coming from the bar/club downstairs. After a bad nights sleep, the breakfast was no good either. They brought us coffee with no milk, and toast but no butter! I was extremely glad to drive the 300 miles home, I just wished I had done that the night before instead of staying in such a poorly run hotel!!!
I stayed at the president hotel a couple of years ago, and despite there being a little chaos because they were having repairs after a guest had started a fire, I found the staff really nice. they were welcoming and helpful.
Arrived 30/07/05. Pre-booked £440. for 1 week PAID IN FULL (first mistake). The first thing you notice is the smell, trying to ignore this we were allocated room 407. The room was quite visibly unclean. The carpet was dirty, the radiators were thick with fluff, the lightshades on the wall (2) were 1/3 full of DEAD FLIES. Our sea view which we paid an extra £20 for was non existant because of the condensation between the double glazing. The double bed had two massive dents in it and neither bed in the bunk set was made up for our 5 year old son. (linen merely folded on top). But the worst part was the window sills, they were covered with dead flies/midges and CRAWLING with tiny ant like BEASTS. We asked for another room pretending the reason was there was no shower (because we really dont like to complain or make a fuss) and were given keys to a room on the third floor. It was equally as FILTHY. We had no alternative but to leave. We made our complaint at reception only to find out we could not get our money back until we had spoken to the General Manager a Mr Alan French on the following Monday. To cut a long story short - it took us 4 return visits with Mr French fobbing us off to finally get a £390 refund on Tuesday afternoon. During this time we met other residents 3 of whom were also leaving and a lady who stated her Grandaughter had received several BITES while staying there. I dont know why this hotel kept £50 of our money, we were barely there 1/2 an hour, but I will certainly be trying to get it back. PLEASE BE WARNED.
Not A Minutes Sleep
I am writing to review 'The New President' Hotel Blackpool. I was disgusted that the staff would have the audacity to place a group of young men who had been out on the drink inbetween to familys. The noise was unbearable and the two families agreed that it was unacceptable. Another problem was the electrical wiring. We could'nt get the main light to work however when the room next door turned their light on our came on also. This is annoying so late in the night. The noise and lights continued until 6am and thereafter. The food didn't make up for the noise. I was disgusted by this hotel and I do not recommend it to anyone hoping for a good meal and a good nights sleep.

I don't get nearly as many breaks as I would like due to work commitments.
Having just stayed at this hotel, me my wife and three year old daughter were treated very nice by all staff. The room we booked we were very impressed with as we stayed at a gold host award last year and this is only a silver ? and this room was much nicer. The only down side was there was not much selection for food for our daughter, eg:sausage & chips or nuggets & chips, and check your cobs on third
night it may have mould, but they gave us fresh bread. All in all we would stay again for the prices they charged.
My family stayed at the president hotel in October 2004. The food is good, the staff friendly apart from the owner of the hotel who we found to be rude and unhelpful.
We booked for a 4 night stay with evening meal and a free childs pass to the pleasure beach. Once we had paid in full the owner told us the free pass was not included anymore and he would not pay for a day pass for our daughter.
The owner is a shame to his staff and we will not book again because of this.
This hotel has also appeared on a T.V. program called "Hotels from Hell" I wonder why !!
