Boulevard Blackpool Hotel Dec 2019

Blackpool’s £12m Boulevard Hotel opens

The 120-bedroom hotel has opened following a development by Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

The Boulevard Hotel was completed by Ball & Berry and contractor Truman Design & Build.

The five-storey hotel also features a 90-seat restaurant called The Beachside and conference facilities for up to 200 people.

The development sits to the north of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and next to the Big Blue Hotel which was the first hotel venture from the developer.

Developer Blackpool Pleasure Beach gained planning approval in April 2018, and construction started on site in June 2018. A phased handover began in May this year where the ground floor was in full use.

Amanda Thompson, managing director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, said: “We’re building on the success of the Big Blue Hotel by offering both leisure and business visitors another hotel which exceeds all expectations.

“This is a continuation of Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s ongoing investment and a pivotal moment for the town. We’re proud to be at the very heart of a transformation that will see Blackpool become one of the UK’s most exciting resorts.”

Dave Gough, associate director at Ball & Berry, said: “Millions of people visit Blackpool each year and it was a pleasure to be involved in bringing in a new stylish hotel to the town.

“We worked together with a client and contractor to deliver a phased scheme that enabled the hotel to partially open ahead of its completion and capitalise on key trading months, whilst also overcoming challenging site restrictions posed by the adjoining buildings.”

A smart development and confident investment by the Pleasure Beach. The South Shore needs a lot of work off the promenade to be a presentable destination for a wider demographic of visitors, the authority should be looking at regeneration inland wherever possible, not just on the front.

Lovely place but the prices are too high to stay there.

I think you’ll find that the Big Blue hotel is to the south of the pleasure beach alongside this new hotel.

It’s better to fill a hotel. Then have it half empty at times. The prices they are charging are well over the top. It’s what I would say. Is millionaire prices. Is Amanda Thomson. Bothered about working class people anymore.
