Houndshill Shopping Centre

By |September 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

What's a holiday by the seaside without a little retail therapy? As well as a fantastic beach, a lovely Prom, great piers and lots of family entertainment, Blackpool also has decent shopping. The Houndshill Shopping Centre in Blackpool is probably the most popular shopping centre in town and the one with the highest profile. It [...]

The Grand Theatre Blackpool

By |September 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

The Grand Theatre in Blackpool offers a top night out for all types of people and all tastes. On a rare night off, we went to see The Full Monty and it was hilarious. We liked the film from years ago and had wanted to see a stage production for a while. When it was [...]

Roxy’s Fun Bar

Roxy's Fun Bar, or just Roxy's is a typical Blackpool night spot. It's fun, lively, has great energy and offers a good night out for all tastes. The bar is owned by Roxy Hart, a drag artist with a long and colourful career within nightlife and show business. Named after a character in the hit [...]

Blackpool Central Library

By |September 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

While not the first place you might think of visiting when holidaying in Blackpool, you would be surprised at how busy the Blackpool Central Library gets during the school holidays. Even when it's not raining outside, people of all ages like to lose themselves for a while in a good book. Blackpool Central Library is [...]

Krazy Kingdom

By |September 15th, 2015|Blackpool Attractions|

Krazy Kingdom in Blackpool is one for the kids. Like many of our town's attractions, this venue is designed to keep the little ones happy and hopefully tire them out. We have covered these kind of children's playgrounds before and they seem very popular. Anywhere children can run, play and be themselves in safety has [...]

Language is still a barrier in some hotels

By |September 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

We thought we would offer a light-hearted end to September with an interesting piece we read on another hotel website. The piece featured some amusing mistranslations in international hotels that made us laugh. Given how easy it can happen and the amusement it provided, we thought we would share them with you. It has been [...]

Robot room service

By |September 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

There has been quite a lot of talk recently about robots taking over human jobs. Fortunately, hospitality is one of those interaction-intensive industries where the human touch is just too powerful to replace. However, it seems hotels aren't completely immune to the robot revolution. There is the usual fearmongering in the media about humans being [...]

A good year so far for British tourism

By |September 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

At the beginning of the year, we didn't know what it had in store. Given how good the 2014 season was for the North Ocean Hotel, we didn't want to tempt fate by wishing for another one like that. But it seems we were lucky once more. Even though there is plenty of the year [...]

Hotel reviews under the spotlight once more

By |September 15th, 2015|Hotel News|

A piece in the Blackpool Gazette at the weekend about fake hotel reviews piqued our interest when we read it. Given our own vested interest in hotel reviews and our opinion that people put too much stock in them, we thought it would be good to discuss it further. The piece in the Gazette talked [...]
