Chris said he appreciated the customers who left reviews, and said that’s why he won the aw a rds. Only the main hotels have all kinds of brea kfa st, have free parking, and are within walking distance of the main attractions in Blackpool. Chris said their hotel has the most important part of being “a place of calm, where the chaos is”.
He added: “A lot of people come because of the noise, noise, noise, but we are able, even though we are on the seafront, to offer a quiet place for couples who want to come to Blackpool.”
Chris and his wife Christine have run the business for five years and have completed a full renovation since purchasing the property. The family thought about what a person would want when they were at home and tried to find what they could afford.
Blackpool-born Chris, who lived in London for a few years, said: “After 30 years in health and sport, we decided to do it ourselves for the last few years before retiring. It’s great to be back home, and we enjoy the sunrises and sunsets every day on the cruise, which are amazing. “
