Fahrenheit Restaurant in Genting Casino Blackpool

By |June 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

We covered Genting Casino in Blackpool a few months ago. It's a good night out for those who like a game or two. It has a mixture of high and low stakes and is a relaxed place to spend an evening. We like it there and would recommend it. We would also recommend Fahrenheit Restaurant [...]

Planet Kaos

By |June 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

It turns out that Planet Kaos is a pretty apt name for this attraction. It’s a specialised play area for children between 1 and 10 years old. It’s noisy and chaotic but in a good way. In fact, we think it’s a great way to tire out the little ones. Planet Kaos can be found [...]

British tourism is thriving and we love it!

By |June 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

The increased appetite for holidaying in Britain is making being a hotelier more rewarding than ever. There's nothing quite as satisfying as high occupancy and the opportunity to meet lots of new people each week. It's a major reason why we bought the North Ocean Hotel, because we're people people. The summer 2015 season is [...]

Why TripAdvisor reviews should be taken with a pinch of salt

By |June 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

We have been lucky so far with reviews of the North Ocean Hotel. The vast majority have been posted by genuine guests and we have been able to quickly identify and remove those that haven't. It's a never-ending game of cat and mouse and one that takes up quite a bit of our time but [...]

The summer season is in full swing and the town is thriving in the sunshine. It's a great time of year, both to be a hotelier and to live in such a lovely seaside destination. Even though the town is open all year round, there is an energy and vibrancy about Blackpool in the summer! [...]

Managing your hotel brand is about satisfying your guests

By |June 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

I was talking to a friend of mine who has just bought a hotel in Bournemouth in the south of England the other day. The conversation revolved around managing the hotel brand, comments, critiques and reviews. It's something we have discussed here on our blog before, but not in this context. My friend has begun [...]

Two words that can make your hotel stand out from the crowd

By |June 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

We don’t often get time to escape the North Ocean Hotel for long and to be honest, we don’t really want to. However, seeing what other hotels around the country are offering is a great way to make sure we’re keeping up with what the guest demands. Fortunately, we have a friend who travels a [...]
