Seafront family hotel in the vacation hotbed of Blackpool
Located on the world famous seafront promenade, the Claremont Hotel Blackpool provides a family-friendly environment in the heart of northern England’s favourite holiday hotspot.
Just a short walk from Blackpool’s North Pier, this 2-star establishment follows the blueprint set out for hotels in UK holiday resorts at their height in the 1930s. With a focus on convenience and entertainment, guests can expect a hotel that replaces unneeded lavishness with functional facilities.
Consisting of 143 guestrooms, the hotel ensures that all visitors have access to practical amenities. As such, all bedrooms include an en-suite bathroom, direct dial telephone, and a colour television. A beverage tray, including teas and coffees, is also provided. On request, guests can utilise irons and ironing boards, as well as hairdryers. Many of these rooms are sea facing meaning that guests can delight in the views of the Irish sea.
These guestrooms can cater from one person to a family of five. Those with a tighter budget might want to book in at the hotel’s ‘motel’, a separate building behind the hotel that offers basic services at a discounted price.
The hotel also features a restaurant, café, and bar. The restaurant follows tradition tightly, with its manager and head chef having worked in their roles for 39 and 20 years respectively. Its menu is made up of an assortment of traditional dishes sourced from local produce. It can accommodate up to 300 people in one sitting.
A café/bar at the Claremont Hotel Blackpool caters for those preferring a snack. Sandwiches, salads, and a selection of hot meals make up the food side of the menu. An additional bar within the hotel offers visitors a choice in location when it comes to resting and relaxing in comfort.
For those looking for entertainment on their doorstep, the Adam Room features a variety of acts almost every evening. You can expect music, dancing, cabaret, and even comedy. Whilst this might fill your evening, a leisure club can be used during the day time. A heated indoor swimming pool, a spa, and a sauna all make for relaxing pastimes during your stay. For those looking for an extra treat, an assortment of pampering services is also available.
The hotel is also home to ‘The Base’, an area designed with children in mind. To keep wandering minds occupied you’ll find various arcade machines, televisions, games consoles, a multi-play sports arena (for football, basketball, and the likes), and a ‘soft’ section for under-4s. WiFi, music television, and pool tables are also accessible. This area is free for hotel residents.
Of course, venturing out in Blackpool will also offer up a multitude of activities. From simple things like walking along the beach or promenade to more extreme activities such as a visit to the Pleasure Beach amusement part, there’s a heap of things to check out.
The famous Blackpool Illuminations can be seen towards the end of the year. The Snowdonia range can be seen from the pier. Rolling green fields surround the historic town. All of these are readily available to those staying at the Claremont Hotel Blackpool.
