I was curious about this building - it says Empress hotel, and Empress was also the name of the orchestra performing in Winter Gardens for the dancing championship. Same organization? Coincidence?
The building was nice, but I couldn't read nothing about such hotel, which should be a big hotel for Blackpool standards. Who wants to help?
A very small hotel, with very small rooms, including an even smaller bathroom, all with a small price. It's fair. Family managed, the owners are a nice couple, treating the few possible guests as friends or family.
I enjoyed very much the simple but tasteful english breakfast.
A lovely greeting by the hosts babs and john, clean, comfy and 5 mins walk to central pier, this is a excellent guest house.
There is sometimes a Mid Week Specials MONDAY TO FRIDAY
Location, lovely hosts, good price, clean and comfy
The Cherry Blossom Hotel, Blackpool North Shore, is a large Victorian House situated on Blackpool's North Promenade on the seafront which was once the seaside home of the family who owned the Cherry Blossom Polish Company. Although this sea front house has now been converted into a 15 bedroom Blackpool Hotel with a large public bar many of the original features have been retained. Ornate ceiling plasterwork, old panelling and large Victorian fireplaces remain. The drawing room, with its' marble pillars, situated on the first floor is now an elegant dining room overlooking the Irish Sea.
Freindly and within everybody's budget if you want a break in Blackpool i recomend The Cherry Blossom Hotel.
We stayed at Jollies for 2 nights and it was a bargain so we wasnt sure what to expect. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly Scottish man called George. He was very nice and helpful, helping us with our bags out of the taxi.
We had an en-suite double room and George led the way up to our room. It was a very cosy feeling, almost as if we were staying with a friend. There are only around 4 to 6 rooms in the whole guesthouse. They do have family rooms which can sleep up to six people, double rooms with en-suite and standard rooms all with tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the shower was very good, abit small but was fine just for the 2 nights. It was nice if we went out in the evenings too as George gave us a key to get in the front door so that we could let ourselves in if we came back late. That way it was safe for everyone staying at Jollies so you know no strangers can walk in from off the street.
It is ideal for those who want to be in the heart of Blackpool as it is close to all the major attractions such as Blackpool Opera House, Pleasure Beach, Maddame Tussaud's and the fantastic nightlife and more.
The best thing about Jollies was the lovely welcome we received from George and his family and also the breakfast was amazing. The best Full English/Scottish breakfast ever!
Also the cleanliness and comfortable room we stayed in, it was excellent value for money and i will definetly be returning to Jollies Guesthouse in the future.
We only paid £18 per person per night which i thought was a bargain.
Myself and a group of friends went to Blackpool for the weekend. As we were a single sex group we found it really difficult finding somewhere that would not only take groups of girls but just for one night on the weekend. We eventually found this hotel just a short walk from the Prominade and not too far from the town center. It was OK for the night. 5 of us were crammed into the family room - it was small but clean and did the job. I would not recommend it for families though. We had a little room that was ensuite.
Blackpools accommodation varies greatly, so choose carefully
The area around South Shore is where most of the Stag and Hen parties use, this is party central so dont expect quiet nights, and there are several hotels specifically aimed at gay tourists
the further back from the sea front you go the more run down the hotels and guest houses appear and the prices drop so if comfort and quality is not a deciding factor you can get bargain rates here
Blackpool has bed and breakfasts on every corner........there are hundreds of them and their starting prices are normally quite cheap. If there is going to be a few of you, i would check before hand if you are able to stay as some places wont accept parties i.e. Hen/Stag etc...
The hotel we stayed at was the lindfield hotel, a small bed and breakfast which was right behind the Pleasure Beach. The rooms were clean and tidy (which was ideal - we were only there one night and suited us fine) The only problem with it, was it was a bit out of the nightlife/shopping area - so great if you are just going for the pleasure beach but not so great if you are just wanting to stagger home after a night on the lash!
This hotel served breakfast in the morning and it was great, a great start to the day; to cure the hangover and set us up for the journey home
When we stayed there were no stag/hen parties but i think that they are able to stay here.
There was also a bar in the hotel which was good to start the night off (and end it!hehehe!)
Pontins in Blackpool has lots of reviews. Some people say it is filthy, while others say it's good value, you have to visit it to make your own mind up. I have stayed in many hostels, so I'm not fussed as long as the bed sheets are clean & you can get comfortable nights sleep.
The complex is next to the airport so low flying aircraft will fly over in the early hours towards Ireland. Each chalet has numbers in the corner of the windows and you will be issued a key, although the locks a bit fiddly until you get used to it. All chalets have tea making facilities (need your own t-bags etc), a bathroom with a shower (Mira) over the top, the tap over the sink itself turns. All chalets have a TV with remote control, with a channel all about Blackpool and Pontins. There’s only two toilet rolls per chalet, ask reception for more if you run out. Also there’s no towels, so bring your own.
My only gripe is that the beds are a bit hard with that plastic mattress covering stuff that makes everything a bit slippery & sweaty. There’s a rail to hang your clothes & storage draws. There’s a heater in the bathroom and the bedroom.
There’s a Londis shop on the complex, which opens at 7.30 to 8pm everyday. You can buy most things like shampoo, papers, soft toys & key rings. There’s also a swimming pool (closes at 4.30 for cleaning), & a smaller cafe. The dining room looks like a school dining room but the food is ok (cooked breakfast) although the staff look a bit miserable. Not being racist here, but I notice that some of the foreign workers are a bit rude & abrupt.
The entertainment centre is at the theatre next to the Queen Victoria. A lot of the entertainment is aimed at children, but there was a magic show after 9pm which was very impressive. There’s a bar in the theatre, but you can play Snooker & table tennis next door. There is cabaret in the evening until some ungodly hour, you can also hire go karts to cycle round the complex there’s also a go-karting circuit.
In the distance you can see the Pepsie Max roller coasters light which sends lasers waving a cross the low clouds. Over the road is the sand dunes, a bus will stop outside Pontins to take people to see the illuminations. It goes round teh back streets with a commentry before coming back along by the illuminations themselves. The rain can be a bit off putting; some people call this place Stalug luft three!
It was a friendly stay in this B&B. The owner Jane and Bob are extremely friendly. I enjoyed the big English breakfast very much. It costs GBP27 per nite.
Large site 96 pitches,all hard standing,pristine modern toilet block heated,showers ,privacy cubicles,laundry room,information room and site shop.
Site quiet and secure with CCTV and barriers that require a special remote control to open them.
I can't remember the name of the bed & breakfast that we stayed in but the owners were very friendly.
The bedroom we stopped in had one very unique quality. My fiance lost my watch, we looked everywhere for it. When we looked under the bed we had a big surprise, there were no legs, it was held up with paint tins.
From the outside you are quite impressed( well wot u expect for your money) but once inside the flats we found dirt on the floor, kitchen ,bathroom, dirty sheets! we spent the first day of our holiday shopping for cleaning products and cleaning the flat!
The falts were in a good location close to shops and a chippie. It was close to the tower.
This "motel" is along a street with lotsa B&B. It did not give us a good impression when we arrive becos it is called a "motel", so we went around looking for other B&B. We have seen the rooms in the others and not satisfied at all. So we went back to this motel. We should have a look before we go around! The room in this motel is big with en-suite and clean. Most importantly it is clean as compared to others that we have visited! I would recommend this "motel" for anyone looking for budget accommodation.
There's private carpark behind the motel. Parking space is quite limited. But the owners are friendly people.
This is what the flat interior looked like in 1999, but apparently they've been redecorated since then. As you can see, they have tv and cooking facilities, but as there's a great chippy at the end of the road one way and a huge array of nightlife at the end of the road the other way there was no need for either of these on a weekend away. This is us taking the bride to be out in order to pin a curtain with a L plate on it to her head and handcuff her to "George", a lifesized inflatable man! What fun we had!
