The South Beach area of Blackpool offers a good range of boutique and five-star hotels, where stunning sea views, individually styled rooms and luxurious fittings mean you can easily relax after a fun-filled day. With attractions such as Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Sandcastle Waterpark right on your doorstep, you’ll probably be in need of a rest!
Another popular area to stay in Blackpool is North Shore, where you’ll find a cluster of luxury and mid-range hotels facing out towards the sea. These include the four-star Imperial Hotel – a grand redbrick Victorian hotel with its own spa and swimming pool – and reputable chains including Hilton and Best Western. This area is close to Blackpool Tower, North Shore Golf Club and Blackpool’s North Pier.
In between South Beach and North Shore is the centre of town, which, unsurprisingly, is the place to stay if you like to be in the heart of the action. Close to popular attractions including the Central Pier, SEA LIFE and Madame Tussauds, it’s also where you’ll find many of Blackpool’s quirky themed hotels.
These are usually hidden behind the painted façade of a Victorian townhouse and appear relatively normal – until you step inside, that is. Fancy staying in a hostel with a rock ‘n’ roll theme or a B&B adorned with Lord of the Rings figurines? How about a couples-only retreat complete with a Jacuzzi and a heart-shaped bed? Where else but in Blackpool…
Blackpool gets some stick for its cheap-as-chips guestrooms and B&Bs, but if you’re looking for wallet-friendly accommodation situated a stone’s throw from the beach, you’ll find a warm welcome waiting for you in the city’s budget hotels and B&Bs.
You’ll find countless examples of Blackpool’s cheap ‘n’ cheerful B&Bs lined up along the seafront and tucked away behind the resort’s backstreets. Many offer a hearty fried breakfast in the morning and family-friendly entertainment in the evening, ranging from karaoke nights to cabaret acts.
Popular events such as Blackpool Illuminations and the World Fireworks Championships draw thousands of tourists to the seaside resort each year. Summer and half-term time in the city also tends to be busy, with hotels and B&Bs filling up as soon as the kids break up from school – so do yourself a favour and book early to find the cheapest Blackpool deals.
