About Blackpool

When you think of the glory days of the seaside resort, Blackpool springs first to mind. For this reason there is a vast range of accommodation on offer and the best places to stay in Blackpool range from family friendly and very affordable to five star boutique hotels.

Known for its Pleasure Beach, three piers and fabulous tower, Blackpool was THE place to come for sun, sea, sand and fun before most of us could afford to fly. But despite the dated feel and the slightly kitsch architecture, Blackpool still welcomes in around 15 million visitors a year! Some who even come out of season to enjoy Blackpool’s once magical Illuminations.

The Pleasure Beach is probably one of the main reasons for people to visit, it’s got around 145 rides, but for something really special you need to visit Blackpool Tower. Built in 1894 this building has housed al sorts of entertainments but these days has a magnificent ballrooms, a Moorish circus, an adventure playground, a dungeon experience and an observation deck with a glass floor.

If you want to book one of the best places to stay in Blackpool during the busy holiday periods, you'll have to get organised and plan well ahead. Even if you're coming in quieter months, don't leave it till the last minute to book....Blackpool is still a very popular spot!

For families

  • If you’re looking for great, family friendly value then the Big Blue Hotel is a great option, with modern, sometimes luxurious, rooms starting from just £55 per night. You’re also right next to the Pleasure Beach.

For seaviews

  • For something a little more boutique, try Number One South Beach, a 15 room hotel with a range of colourful, uniquely decorated rooms - many offering sweeping views over the beach. Rooms are themed, and very different from each other - so have a look at a few before you choose. Great for couples, and there’s also a decent restaurant.
