Why stay at The Imperial Blackpool?

Blackpool is the ultimate British seaside resort, welcoming millions of visitors every year. With the famous illuminations, the huge Pleasure Beach amusement park, the zoo and much, much more, it is a town built to offer visitors a great time. The Imperial Hotel offers the ideal setting for getting the full, authentic Blackpool experience. A four-star hotel on the promenade, it offers a great destination for family holidays and traditional seaside breaks.

The hotel first opened for business in the mid-19th century, and today retains much of its original Victorian grandeur, both on the building’s exterior and throughout the public areas. From the comfortable guest rooms to the light, open restaurant and welcoming bar area, the hotel is full of historic character.


However, the hotel has a few more modern touches too, with excellent facilities. For families, the children’s playroom can offer some fun, while there’s a fitness suite to help you stay in shape. If you enjoy a little pampering, the hotel also offers beauty rooms where you can get a range of spa treatments. And, for those that like to start the day with a swim, there’s a good-sized pool too.


Then again, if you want to take to the water, you’ll find the sea just over the road. With a spot on the northern end of the promenade, the hotel has an ideal location for breaks in Blackpool – close enough to walk to many of the best attractions, but at the quieter end of town, away from the more boisterous attractions. The renowned Blackpool Tower is a gentle walk along the promenade, as is the busy North Pier and the modern Houndshill Shopping Centre, while the famous Pleasure Beach and Sandcastle water park are only a short bus ride away.


Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly hotel for a seaside holiday or a comfortable base for exploring the wider area, the traditional four-star Imperial Hotel offers an ideal setting for your stay.

The hotel is at the North End of the Promenade (the A584) around 5 miles from the end of the M55. The nearest railway station is Blackpool North, which is just half a mile away, while the closest airports are Liverpool John Lennon or Manchester, both of which are around an hour’s drive.


What’s worth visiting in Blackpool?

  • Blackpool Tower – Not only a famous landmark and grade 1 listed building, but also the home of the renowned ballroom (which Strictly fans will recognise), a circus, children’s adventure playground and more.

What is there to do at the hotel?

While the hotel dates back around 150 years, the facilities on offer are a great deal more modern.

“Blackpool is the ultimate seaside destination, with the attractions, amusements and activities you won’t find anywhere else. The Imperial Hotel is a big part of the Blackpool story, having been built around 150 years ago – and welcoming thousands of guests every year since, as well as several high-profile political party conferences. Today, it’s not only a wonderful four-star hotel, but an historic setting for traditional seaside holidays.”

Rated 3 out of 5.
The building is a classic but needs to undergo an extensive refurbishment programme. There was no air conditioning in the room and the general air conditioning needs extensive repair or replacement. We only had one evening meal in the restaurant, unfortunately the beef I had was over cooked and the prawns a friend had were off....
Rated 5 out of 5.
Everything at this Hotel from entering the reception area was 1st class staff could not be more helpful in my case where the lift was and all other facilities were. A wonderful stay in a first class hotel would recommend it and Easy Breaks to everyone Harry Nichols THANK YOU...
