Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s Big Blue Hotel has been named one of the best in the UK for families.
The 157-room contemporary hotel was named third best in the country in the 2014 TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards.
Now in their 12th year, the awards honour the world’s most outstanding properties in the categories of Top Hotels, Bargain, B&Bs and Inns, Family, Luxury, Romance, and Small Hotels.
Travellers’ Choice award winners were determined based on the reviews and opinions of millions of TripAdvisor travellers around the globe. Opened in 2003, the Big Blue Hotel is situated at the southern end of Blackpool Pleasure Beach. It provides a range of rooms for families, business people and couples.
Martin Jackson, (pictured) director of the Big Blue Hotel, said: “We are delighted to receive this accolade from TripAdvisor.
“We strive to offer families a memorable experience and this award is evidence that our hard work is translating into positive reviews.
“We are constantly striving to be the best hotel we can be and to be named one of the best in the UK only goes to show we are heading in the right direction.
“I would like to congratulate all our staff for their hard work and dedication over the past year .”
James Kay, TripAdvisor spokesman, said: “These awards recognise the finest hotels across the globe, according to those that really matter - the travellers themselves.”
