Certificate of Excellence
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.

Yes there is a tram stop on the opposite side of the road. You can get a tram ticket that lasts 24hrs for a family of 4 for £12. You can get through the illuminations on the tram from start to the end. They do get very busy though.

There is parking out front however very rare to find a space. Also small car park at the back again usually filled with staff cars but if you ring ahead they may reserve you a space.

"Room 101 is a noisy room"
"Hotel very quiet, mid week in early Dec, so no noise. Not so sure about rooms at front in high season."
"Lift is very small so request a low floor if you have walking difficulites to avoid the stairs"
"Rear higher floors at least look over the roves of the houses. Can be noisy early AM dud to garbage collectors."
"Some rooms are bigger than other and I would definitely recommend the roomier ones"
US$85 - US$114 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
