About Elgin

The Elgin looks out over the Irish Sea on the quiet Queens Promenade just to the north of Blackpool's main resort area. Sweeping views, great entertainment and exemplary service characterise this large refurbished hotel.

The hotel offers a range of contemporary, vividly decorated guest bedrooms, all of which come with modern en-suite bathrooms and central heating. Flat-screen TVs and tea/coffee making facilities are standard features. Some rooms boast impressive sea views.

Guests can relax on the outdoor patio area and watch the sun go down from the spacious sun lounge. A complementary computer is available for public use and free Wi-Fi is provided throughout. A lift serves all floors.

Traditional 'home-from-home' breakfast, lunch and dinner options are served daily in the stylish yet informal restaurant. The hotel's two bars host regular live entertainment/cabaret acts.

Blackpool Tower and the Central Pier are around 1.5 miles away from The Elgin.

Positive Reviews

Staff know how to be hospitable.

This hotel uses initiatives like its 'Train to Gain' programme and 'Investors in People' status to ensure its staff look after guests to professional standards. This approach is clearly working as staff service is often cited by guests as being the hotel'

A really wonderful sea view.

And guess what: they're aren't any piers, advertising hoardings, Ferris wheels – or even that many people – to get in the way; just a whole lot of calm blue sea with some lovely sand and a few rocks for good measure. Lovely.

Hugely varied entertainment programme.

The Elgin makes a massive effort with its entertainment programme, putting on everything from comedy nights and bingo to live music and tribute acts. They even host entertainment-based mini-breaks, such as Murder Mystery and “Hi-De-Hi” weekends. Great fun

Negative Reviews

Location is a little out of the way.

Rooms above cabaret bars suffer with noise.

If you're staying in a room located directly above the entertainment venues then don't anticipate getting much sleep before midnight. Even with earplugs in, you can still here the sound of the music/microphone reverberating!
