Blackpool remains a popular destination for a fun filled weekend, with the Tower, the Illuminations, a welcoming beach and hundreds of pubs and bars. Blackpool's traditional appeal and pleasing beach-side location means it attracts visitors from across the British Isles, not to mention some from abroad! Here's a couple of the very best Hotels in Blackpool with rooms currently available.
Cheap and cheerful, The King's Hotel is rated as one of the most popular hotels in Blackpool. With an enviable location right next to the attractions of the Pleasure Beach theme park, and overlooking the beach, the King's Hotel features a traditional pub with pool table, large bedrooms and attentive service. Double rooms based on two adults sharing are available for under £60 for weekend rates.
The Best Western Carlton Hotel meanwhile offers a superb location right on Blackpool Promenade, close enough to all the amenities and nightlife of the city yet still peaceful enough to get a good night's sleep. Popular with revellers as well as families and the elderly, the Carlton Hotel offers the service standards of the Best Western chain with a bit of local character and charm. Double rooms are available for less than £55 per night, a budget price.
Alternatively, the Big Blue Hotel on Ocean Boulevard has been attracting admirable reviews from regular Blackpool visitors. Opened in 2003, this modern, chic four-star hotel sits right by the Pleasure Beach and is considered by some to be Blackpool's best and most up-to-date hotel. Complimentary Wifi, business facilities and an on-site brasserie ensure this is a hotel that can satisfy visitors on business trips as well as tourists. Double rooms for the Big Blue Hotel start at around £70 per night.
So, while many feel Blackpool is outdated and tired, the truth is that this town still has a lot to offer. The best hotels in Blackpool have modernised and changed with the times, offering modern convenience and style with the friendly, traditional welcome Blackpool has always offered.
