Food was amazing. i’m gluten free and found the hotel had no problem dealing with it. The hotel was very clean. Parking right outside hotel at £10 a night.

    Didn't enjoy my inclusive main meal . Lamb was tough and I thought the 22.50 allowance was not enough . However my sweet was brilliant. Staff and waiters very friendly . We have paid to come again in Sept Oct . So look forward to seeing you then. You must be doing something right.

    We visited for breakfast and had a great experience here. Breakfast is served buffet style. It was well spread out, with no queues or ‘push and shove’ which can sometimes accompany a buffet. Food was good quality, and regularly replenished. Staff service was good, and the restaurant was smartly presented.

    Absolutely amazing time, could not fault the hotel at all. We have stayed at other more expensive hotels before (not through choice) and they weren't even a patch on the Big Blue. We have been going for the last three years and refuse to stop anywhere else now. We recommend to everyone we know that are going to Blackpool.

    Access from the park to the hotel and back should be available at all times during opening hours. It is a very long walk to and from the park entrance to the hotel, no benefit was gained by staying site. There was very limited seating for drinks in the evening and no entertainment, the area was more suited to adult guests yet most there had children.

    We ordered a couple of rib-eye steaks from the Big Blue's Brasserie. They were cooked exactly as requested (ie medium), chips were thick cut and had a nice light and crispy coating. Onion rings and portobello mushrooms were very tasty. If you like a good steak then you won't be disappointed at Big Blue!

    This was our final evening meal at The Big Blue Hotel before returning home and was again another fantastic dining experience. We had the steak and haddock, all cooked to perfection. We were once again served by Seyhmus and as usual, he was great and gave us excellent, friendly service. As I couldn’t decide between Stick Toffee pudding and chocolate brownie for dessert, I had both and they were perfect. Many thanks for more great food, fantastic service and a wonderful stay at the hotel. Through breakfast, lunch and dinner, the food is always of a high standard, great choice and excellent service and I’d recommend dining at The Big Blue to everyone, whether it’s for an evening out or you just fancy a really well cooked full English breakfast.

    We’re staying at The Big Blue Hotel and chose to have breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel but we’d also recommend the day and A La Carte menus to anyone looking for somewhere good to eat. This evening we had the roast chicken and pork chops, followed by sticky toffee pudding. All the food was excellent with outstanding service from Chloe and the restaurant team. The food is of a high standard and looks and tastes great. The staff have all been friendly and given excellent service both in the restaurant and bar. Thanks again for another wonderful evening g of dining and relaxation. I’d recommend the Bg Blue Hotel restaurant to everyone. It’s well worth a visit and I’ve been working my way through the menu, during my stay.
