Fantastic stay from start to finish. Staff all very helpful and friendly. Erica in kids club was great with the children and Sara went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed while also over seeing a wedding. The food in the cafe/bar was fantastic hot, fresh and tasty. The sea view family room 312 was spotless spacious...

Spent a night at this hotel with my family as a stopover on way home from Southampton. Booked it as the reviews were good and looked nice in the online pictures. On arrival we couldn't get parked as the available spaces were taken at hotel so had to park around the corner. Check in was fine although the decor in...

We'd arranged for 21 cyclists to have lunch at the hotel's Bar 663. The staff were welcoming and the wide food range especially tasty. The facilities are clean and modern. We could not have chosen a better place for our lunch stop. Some ate on the terrace and others in the restaurant window looking out over the promenade

I stayed for two nights in this very pleasant and well appointed hotel on Blackpool's South Shore. It's some way from the centre (although it's only a stone's throw from the Pleasure Beach). However, this is not a problem not only because it's opposite the tram stop from where it's just 10 minutes into town but it's also a very...

This is a decent clean well run hotel. Staff were helpful and the full English breakfast buffet was of good quality. The evening guitar player is a nice quiet way to spend a couple of pints away from the rowdiness of the rest of Blackpool. There's a games room which is useful to keep the kids occupied for a little...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The beautifully refurbished Carousel is the highest AA rated 3 star hotel in Blackpool. Situated five minutes from Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the hotel is ideally located on the South Promenade, near to all of Blackpool’s attractions - but far enough away from the bustle of Blackpool's famous Golden Mile to offer a relaxing, refreshing and high quality experience. Our Cafe Bar 663 serves both breakfast and an extensive menu for all-day dining, alongside its bar facility and 24 hour room service. We have 22 family rooms all with DVD players and an extensive library of DVDs for the children available to loan with our compliments. The hotel also has nightly entertainment during the summer months alongside Cafe Bar kids activities, subject to seasonality. ... more   less
