I feel it needs to be said that this hotel has more 'little extras' in than I have seen in any other hotel in Blackpool, including that huge ones I've stayed in such as The Savoy in Gynn Square.
There is a games room accessible to everybody. The pool table is £1 per game and the machines are reasonible. While we were staying, a family spent a good few hours playing pool (as there was no queue). It was great to hear the faint sounds laughter and joking while we were sat in the bar area.
The toy corner is through the games room. It's a little area when younger children can entertain themselves. The toys are what families have left behind in the past. My 3 year old Godson loved digging through the box and playing with what he found!
There is an information stand in the toy corner that hold many leaflets about the attractions in and round Blackpool. For example, information on Blackpool Zoo, the Sea-Life centre and Madame Tussauds.
So if you're stuck for what to do - have a look here for inspiration!
I enjoyed the art that is displayed in the hotel. The art in the bar is by a local student photographer and there were contact details if you wanted to enquire further.
I like to see local businesses supporting local talent.
The breakfast room is light and airy. It has a very nice feel to it. You seat yourself, and a waitress will come to your table to take your order.
Breakfast is a full English with a choice of how you would like your eggs, or a mushroom omelette.
While you are waiting for your cooked breakfast, there is a choice of cereal to help yourself to, along with toast, tea, coffee and fruit juices.
Although we waited a while for our cooked breakfast, when it did come it was very tastey. Everything is cooked in the oven and wasn't swamped in grease.
We left full and satisfied for our fun-packed day!
There is a comfortable bar area that has seating with tables, a small area that children can play with toys, a dancefloor, Carling, Guiness and Strongbow on tap and access to outside smoking area.
Music is played in the bar unless the TV is on - which is shown through a projector for the big screen affect.
The bar stocks bottled beer, wine, soft drinks, J2O's and a wide variety of spirits aswell as tea and coffee.
It was mainly families in the hotel when I was there. In the bar of an evening, many of the children made friends and played together.
This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the hotel door to the sand on the beach. It is located between the Tower and the Pleasure Beach. It is very child friendly.
It is owned by a lovely couple (Diane and Wally) who are very friendly and welcoming. The Ashley Victoria is their second hotel. They also own The Princess, on the other side of the road (picture 2-centre building) which is where the free parking facilities are.
The rooms are really nice. The one I stayed in was modern with a fresh feel. It had hot drink making facilities, bathroom with shower, towels, wardrobe to hang clothes, TV, desk and chair and bed-side tables. We had a room with a double bed and a single bed (two adults and a child).
The price is about adverage for a 4 star hotel in Blackpool and is based on bed and breakfast.
Unique Quality: I love how child friendly this hotel is. They even have a toy corner for children to use as they want to. Children are also allowed in the bar area and it is not a problem if they want to run around or dance on the dancefloor!
