The hotel is quite a way from the tower about a 50 minute walk so don't choose here for Central location only if your wanting pleasure beach. Had to change rooms at 1am as our room was next to a generator/boiler which every 5 minutes turned...

Normally we stay at the Hilton - the key reason as a family we know we get a decent room with all we need so this was a bit of a chance. A great result, parking was easy, check in was straightforward, the room was on the top floor (3rd), accessed via an old fashioned lift which is too small...

My heart sank when we arrived at hotel, a coach full of youth footballers complete with muddy kits & muddy boots entered the hotel, some of them not even taking off their muddy boots, walking through hotel! It is a very basic hotel public areas very shabby. The carpets could do...

The rooms are spotless, and although small they have everything you need and comfy beds. The staff are all helpful and happy to do anything to help.

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, we are 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 all day dining, alongside an extensive bar facility and 24 hour room service menu. 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 has nightly entertainment during the summer months alongside a weekend kids club. ... more   less
