Blackpool Cricket Ground

By |July 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

Now summer is (sort of) here, cricket is being played on village greens and pitches across the country. That familiar thwack of leather on wood and shouts of "howzat" and rounds of applause are sounds of the summertime and are as English as cream teas and picnics. One place you can hear all of this [...]

Tristans Light House

By |July 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

Today's Blackpool attraction is something a little different. We had a guest with us a couple of weeks ago that had special needs and during our chats discovered they had tried Tristans Light House in town. We had never heard of it, which prompted us to find out more. Tristans Light House is a multi-sensory [...]

Ken Webster Hypnotist Show

By |July 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

The Ken Webster Hypnotist Show is just what you would expect from a seaside resort. It's good natured, a little funny and harms nobody. That not only makes it perfect for Blackpool but good for a night out with your friends too. The shows are adult only, so you need to bear that in mind [...]

Blackpool Climbing Towers

By |July 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

You may have seen some tall, odd-looking grey structures in Bancroft Park in the south of Blackpool and wondered what they are. They are climbing towers and form part of a council-run attraction for locals and visitors alike. The climbing towers are run by Sport Blackpool, part of the council. They run a wide range [...]

The importance of downtime for a work life balance

By |July 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

Another conversation with a hotel guest prompts another blog post. I see a pattern forming here! We like talking to our guests and we love people in general. It's why we are in this business and why we love each day. However, I digress. I was talking to a couple who were taking a few [...]

Why Wi-Fi should be free in hotels

By |July 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

We here at the North Ocean Hotel have offered free Wi-Fi throughout the building since we opened. We always expected it when we travelled, so saw no reason why our own guests wouldn't expect it. It was one of those few early decisions that was made in seconds as opposed to those many that took [...]

What’s on in Blackpool during August

By |July 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

With the summer season well under way, hotels in Blackpool are very busy. The North Ocean Hotel is busier than ever and we're loving every minute. If you're planning to come and stay with us during August 2015, you might like to know what's on in town during that time. That's what these "what's on" [...]

Bringing personality into the hotel business

By |July 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

I recently read a piece in Hotel News Now, a website that has a lot of useful stuff for hoteliers and those in the industry. It's an American site, but still has a lot of relevance to the Blackpool hotel market, which is why I keep an eye on it when I can. A recent [...]
