    The breakfasts were generally good, with a breakfast buffet (maybe a nice addition would be mushrooms to the buffet). The juices were concentrated, so not completely fresh juice. The tea was very nice (Yorkshire Tea) but not a decaf coffee choice.

    Great stay, lovely room with view of the big one and other rides, we will be returning again when the rides are in use as we came out of season for pleasure beach. Family room was great with own area for the kids (bunk bed and 2 tvs and ps3 which my 6 year old loved. Breakfast was included as were the zoo tickets as we got the zoo offer which came to 150 for the night, great value. Receptionist and staff were great and friendly and helpful. We will be coming back very soon when pleasure beach is open xxx

    The ambiance was lovely, out of season and quiet. Seated and served drinks quickly and politely. Fish was dry and tasteless and left on the plate, but crushed petit pois, and chunky chips were lovely. The braised beef was more gristle than meat, the potato rosti was extremely salty and I wonder if it was the cheese running through it that made it that way. The side of onion rings were about the best thing on the table, crispy, but not overdone, really lovely. We raised our thoughts with the staff who said they’d feed back to the chef. Never heard anything more about it. Desserts and coffees were fine and cooked and presented well.

    As hotel residents at the Big Blue we were offered a Table D'Hote menu, but we had a main menu to choose from and also a specials menu. We both chose Cauliflower Fritters and Cajun dip from the specials menu for starters, even my husband loved them and he is really fussy. The cauliflower was cooked in a slightly spiced batter which was crispy and melt in the mouth, a really really good start to the meal. For main I chose off the main menu, the roast chicken with a jug of creamy mushroom sauce that had loads of fresh mushrooms in it, served with dauphinois potatoes and petit pois...again everything cooked perfectly.. my husband opted for the set menu of braised steak with mustard mash and green beans, unfortunately the peice of steak was quite fatty, he explained to the waiter who straight away suggested the fish and chips and changed the food within 5 mins. The fish was huge and the chips soft inside and really crispy outside, he really enjoyed this. For desert my husband chose the apple and blackcurrant crumble with icecream.

    Visited this restaurant 2 days ago and was charged a supplement for the cheese even though it wasn't stated on the menu. I was advised the menu would be changed to reflect this. It hadn't been changed! Lovely food. The potatoes were over seasoned with pepper but otherwise a very nice meal. Service was excellent. On leaving the restaurant there was a very audible argument within the kitchen including expletives which has lead to reduced score on ambiance. I was thankful the restaurant was quiet and no children were in the vicinity.

    Food was excellent quality and taste. Would highly recommend. Be aware though that there can be supplements on some items that are not listed on the menu. It was disappointing to discover this on way out of restaurant and even though not listed, you still have to pay it. Put a bit of a downer on what was otherwise a lovely experience.

    Love this hotel . Have stayed in others but none live up to the Big Blue . The only letdown is the parking fee . Since coming to Blackpool to visits family it was free then £5 then £10 them £15 and now it’s gone up to £18 . This on top of the stay price is abit high .

The courses were showcased to a high standard & was the best we’ve had in a restaurant for a long time. The portion sizes were more than enough. The staff were very friendly & welcoming & professional at all times throughout.

    The food is so beautifully prepared. Presentation excellent. If you do go off a la carte instead of set menu, it is more expensive, but in my opinion, Ito me it is well worth the extra cost. People on a limited budget ,might not agree The service is excellent and the staff are all wonderful, extremely helpful.

    Mains were good. One of the desserts smelled very off. Jarek, the duty manager, refused to refund that one dessert because he said it's normal for the shortbread biscuits to smell like parmesan even though they are only made from flour, sugar and butter (in-house). The chef said they always come out like that. Ruined our experience and Definitely won't be returning!
