Wet close to south Pier

Posted 15-Oct-2018
We were actually booked to stay somewhere else, an apartment, there was a booking issue last minute and Expedia swapped our booking to this place. We arrived late and were welcomed, we didn’t realise the parking situation - whilst the advertisement says free parking, and you do get free parking, you do have to give in your keys. The security around the keys was a concern for us. They were kept in a bucket and when my husband asked for our key he was offered the bucket to choose his key. Whilst it would be lovely to assume everybody is 100% honest it’s just not the reality unfortunately:-/ The room was adequate - it came with everything it said it would. The room and bathroom were mostly clean - the mini bar and sweets selection was good and the prices reasonable. We were on the second floor, the stairs are narrow and slightly steep - it wouldn’t have been easy if we had any kind of mobility issue. We didn’t have any issue with noise at all. The breakfast was ok - the waitress was lovely and very helpful - the floors in the restaurant area and extremely noisy :-/ We left early because the weather was horrendous and we had a 5 hour drive home so left late on the Saturday. Overall a good weekend disputed the weather ☔️

Lovely hotel in a great seafront location

Posted 13-Oct-2018
Pros: The rooms are very nice. The location was great easy to get to. Breakfast included & free parking on site was very helpful.
Location: At the south end of the promenade. Right next to the Pleasure Beach (but not noisy). Good for the water park, south pier & Illuminations.
Stayed for 2 nights. Very nice rooms with everything we needed. We managed to fit our travel cot in the room no problem. Free onsite parking was another reason we picked this hotel. Very friendly hosts. Right next to the pleasure beach and two tram stops close by. We walked from the tower to the hotel first night, it’s a long walk with a 3 year old but the lights go all the way along and there’s plenty to look at on the way. Nice selection at breakfast. Would stay again.

The purpose of my trip was to see my friends working at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Kings' location was very convenient. When I checked in, I was upgraded to a larger room, free of charge. The innkeepers are very friendly and accommodating. Also, the English breakfast in the morning was delicious! The waitstaff was very friendly. Only note: you're not allowed to have takeaway in your room. So I ate my fish and chips on the (windy) boardwalk.

Disappointing

Posted 18-Aug-2018
Rooms clean and comfortable beds. Landlady very pleasant. However bathroom dated and shower switch needs held in for a period of time to work. Had 2 sleepless nights due to parties in the property next door. When we asked if anything could be done it was suggested that WE call Environmental Health which I didn't see was our place to do. The owner did eventually call them. After 2 nights moved to another hotel to secure a nights sleep. Not a mention of compensation from the £420 cost to stay here unrelaxing, with limited sleep. Not in my view an 'Exceptional' experience. Rooms at the front with sea views may offer a different experience.

Paul and Tina are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is a must, well worth getting out of bed for Lovely bar to enjoy a beer or four If staying in Blackpool look no further than the Kings
