It’s never a bad time to visit Blackpool. In fact, we would go as far as to say, half term is the ideal time to visit Blackpool. We don’t raise prices just because the kids are of school like some holiday companies! There is a lot to see and do here all year round but [...]

The perfect Valentine’s Day at North Ocean Hotel

By |February 15th, 2016|Hotel News|

The North Ocean Hotel is open throughout the year, including Valentine’s Day. While the typical V-day is very commercialised, we think it’s still an important day for those with someone special. We do agree with critics who say you should show appreciation and love every day, not just once a year, but it’s too good [...]
