Historical Traveler Reviews Lancaster House Hotel Blackpool
Not all the best hotels have sea views!
This was our first visit to the Lancaster House Hotel which is about 10 mins from the beach. It has been refurbished to a very good standard with bright modern decor.On arrival the staff who were always warm and friendly offered us tea or coffee before being shown to our room (9) which was spotless.The buffet styled breakfast was served in Oliver's Bistro which is part of the hotel and was opened last year was superb but the 3 course evening meal was excellent 10 out of 10.If you cannot stay at the hotel you must dine at Oliver's Bistro. I have no trouble in recommending the Lancaster House Hotel.
A Hotel with excellent standards
We were pleasantly greeted upon arrival and offered tea or coffee before being shown to our rooms which were excellent. A family of 4 (kids 9 & 13) and two rooms next to each other and our every need was catered for. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The buffet breakfasts in Olivers Bistro were great and the meals in the evening were in a class of there own , a credit to "Chef" and his great staff whom were very friendly.
The hotel is very easy to find and has off street parking.
This place has to be highly reccommended.
Thank you Barrie (chef) and Maria for the excellent hospitality.

Number one hotel in blackpool
Just returned from a weekend break along with my family and my sister and her family. This is the second year running that we have stayed at The Lancaster House Hotel and again we were not disappointed. We were looked after extremely well once again, and were lucky enough to stay in one of the refurbished bedrooms. The buffet style breakfasts are just "the best". This year we dined at the newly opened bistro on our second night and sampled the 3 course early bird menu. The food was excellent and we will certainly be coming back again next year.
Thank you to Maria and Barrie for a wonderful weekend and not forgetting our compliments to "Chef".
A great stay in Blackpool
My daughter and I have just returned from a 3 night break in Blackpool staying at the Lancaster House Hotel.
We were made to feel most welcome by Barrie and Maria upon our arrival and for the duration of our stay.
Our room was very comfortable and clean, as is the rest of the hotel.
You won't go hungry at the Lancaster. Chef serves a great breakfast as well as a splendid evening meal in the Bistro.
A memorable stay with all credit to Barrie and Maria. Thank you.
Blackpool's Jewel in the Crown
We have just returned from a super weekend at the Lancaster House Hotel. Forget the Pleasure Beach, Tower and lights, sample something different in Blackpool and head to thie Lancaster.
From the warm welcome by Maria on arrival to the excellent cuisine served up by Barrie you cannot help but enjoy your stay in Blackpool.
The quality of food and standard of service is something to savour and leaves you wishing that you were staying longer.
We spent hours this year searching the net for somewhere to stay, next time it will be a quick phonecall to Maria.
Not your usual blackpool hotel
once again our party of 12 have stayed at the lancaster house.
altogether we have visited this same hotel for over 14 years and in the last 3 it has been under the management of Barrie and Maria.
What a difference we have experienced each year for the past 3 years. each time we have returned we have had new refurbishments to enjoy and this year has seen the biggest and the best-Oliver's Bistro!
the hotel gives you great comfortable accomadation along with great hospitality- something that is hard to find in your normal b&b.
Oliver's Bistro provides excellent freshly cooked to order food along with the ability to watch chef Barrie cook your food. Hell's kitchen its not with their excellent table service and friendly staff this hotel is a credit to blackpool.
so if you are looking for a great place to stay with excellent service and top class food then this is the place.
well done to Barrie & Maria for all your hard work on the renovations of this hotel.
on behalf of the North Braunstone Childrens Fund committee
thankyou and see you again next year.
Top Class Hotel in Blackpool
We have just returned from a weekend away at the Lancaster House Hotel which was excellent. The normal type of accommodation in Blackpool is a Guest House but we were looking for something better and different and this is certainly what we found. The staff were extremely courteous and we were given a friendly welcome. The hotel has recently been refurbished with tasteful decor and the attention to detail is first class - even down to the fixtures and fittings of the bathrooms. The food in Oliver's Bistro is superb with presentation receiving 10 out of 10. The hotel also has parking for residents which is important as Blackpool can be busy. All attractions are within easy walking distance. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel and advise you to enquire at the very competitive rates that they have.
The best dining experience in Blackpool !
This was the first time we had been to the Lancaster Hotel and it certainly won't be the last! It has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and Oliver's Bistro is by far the best quality dining in Blackpool. Barrie is a superb chef - cooking fresh British and French food, in full view of the Restaurant which I particularly liked. The food was perfect and the only problem I had was that I couldn't try all the dishes at once! The staff are warm and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail goes without saying and the decor is modern, bright and absolutely spotless. We shall certainly be back, especially as Olivers Bistro is open to the public and not just hotel residents. Well done.
Great New Look
The hotel has a great new look following major work to improve the public areas and introduce the new Bistro Restaurant. Stylish, modern and very impressive. The service, as always, is excellant and a credit to Maria and Barrie.
Fantastic Stay - Great People - Great Food
Had a fantastic stay at Lancaster House - Great Food - why eat out when you can eat in and enjoy the the fantastic new restuarant - plus great bar, with Barrie & Maria.
Hotel has undergone a major transformation since I last visited and is a real credit to the hard work Barrie & Maria must have been putting in.
Definitely look forward to seeing you again soon, and even if we can't get booked in on our next trip to Blackpool will call in and try the full range in 'Oliver's Bistro'

Totally worth it tour of the Casbah Coffee Club with my new favorite person, Roag Best. Then the obvious-but-pleasurable Beatles Story museum at the docks. Scored some music at an actual active not-picked-over music shop, too. Click here for photos (they take too long to upload here): https://www.facebook.com/sarahollidaybo ...
Trip to the Lancashire Infantry Museum. FEPOW art and military history. (Who are FEPOWs? See sarahollidaybooks.com.) By the way, most of the locations on the photos here are bogus. I've been at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and this museum in Preston, and the app doesn't admit those places ...
Got home at 0530am and woke up Chown and Chemma with our gifts from Blackpool! Slept most the day and then had a lovely eggs Bene in a town called Lytham. Chown had to head to Glasgow for work so girls night on the couch with pizza and pasta and a good ...
Gemma and Chown headed off to a wedding leaving Knaps and I to venture into what can only be described as hell on earth, Blackpool. Imagine a town of Chavs but with all the other Chavs in the country coming in as well, for hens and bucks parties and just to get hammered. We drank for 15 hours it was fun. Met up with Caitlin smith from Mercure Sydney days and then with Nicky and Ashleigh some of Knaps mates I'd met in Singapore. Was a right laugh of people watching and bad 80's ...

Am now a 'Lone Ranger' for Civic Pride - to go out and litter pick at my own convenience.... Going to go out after I finish this blog to do some more, down the hill on the footpath at the side of the graveyard (leads up to the school and used by lots of the children) and into the edge of the graveyard where there are always bottles and rubbish.
