The Imperial Hotel, North Promenade, Blackpool, FY1 2HB – Visit Now

All of the glitz and glamour of old school Blackpool are wrapped up in the The Imperial Hotel, a grand nineteenth century icon situated on the famous North Promenade. Guests choosing to stay in the monolithic Victorian red brick hotel — originally established in 1867 — are in good company. Amongst previous patrons, The Imperial Hotel can count the Queen and novelist Charles Dickens, in addition to various British Prime Ministers and numerous stars of stage and screen.

Today the Grade II listed hotel is owned and operated by The Hotel Collection who run a four star enterprise. Rooms range from comfortable Standard bedrooms, to Premium and Deluxe options, right up to luxurious Master Suites with views which look out over the Promenade to the Irish Sea. The location is spot on too, with landmarks such as Blackpool Tower and the North Pier joining Grundy Art Gallery and a good selection of restaurants all within an easy fifteen minute walk.

Of course, there are multiple dining options available within the hotel itself too. The Palm Court Restaurant is a stately Victorian experience where diners can watch the sea while sampling a table d’hôte menu which changes quarterly according to the seasons. If you’d like something a little simpler, then there is a lounge menu available direct to your room or within the historic No. 10 bar. Breakfast wise, you can enjoy a range of continental and traditional cooked options.

The Imperial Hotel’s Health Club has a swimming pool, gym and spa facilities — perfect for relaxing after a day walking the prom. There are also elegant, tailored hospitality options for your big event, whether you’re looking to host a conference or a wedding for your nearest and dearest. The largest function room is able to accommodate up to 350 guests with room for everything you might need including ceremonies, dinners and dancing.
