Imperial Hotel Blackpool
The Grand Imperial Hotel Blackpool is one of the most incredible hotels in the area. The historic piece of architecture combines the comforts of modern life with the original character. This iconic building has 14 function suites that are perfect for a huge number of occasions, superbly equipped leisure facilities, and a team of high calibre staff.
With 180 rooms, there is plenty of space. Those who opt for the traditionally decorated en suite bedrooms will love having access to free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, and refreshment facilities. If you have little ones, they won’t get bored as they can spend their time in the playroom. If instead of younger children you have teenagers, you don’t need to worry as the hotel has a games room that has table tennis as well as other activities.
Having opened back in 1867, the Imperial Hotel has had the chance to welcome all manner of guests, including the Queen herself! Various members of royalty have stayed here in addition to statesmen, politicians, prime ministers, and stage as well as screen stars. Even Charles Dickens himself was a guest at one point.
The Beatles were guests here back in 1964 straight after the Royal World Première of the film A Hard Day’s Night in London. Thanks to advice from Beatles manager Brian Epstein, they took the stage to live at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens to introduce the new film. There is a photo that was taken in the Derby room showing John, Paul and Ringo sprawled out on one of the sofas right before they went on the stage. This is still on display in the hotel.
Back in the 1970s, the Imperial Hotel would host concerts in its ballroom. As a result, many iconic bands got to perform here, including the likes of Judas Priest, UFO, and Joy Division.
One of the reasons the Imperial Hotel Blackpool is one of the best hotels in the area is the amount it has to offer its guests. People who stay here can enjoy the hot tub, sauna, indoor swimming pool, and steam room. This isn’t all though as there is also a bar and gym. This should help you understand why it is so popular with guests.
The Palm Court Restaurant is perfect when you are looking for something that offers magnificent food along with a gorgeous view of the sea. This stately choice of fine dining has a table d’hôte menu which changes out quarterly along with the seasons. Guests also have the choice of ordering using the more relaxed lounge menu.

The hotel is also a stunning venue for all kinds of events, including weddings and meetings. The facilities are first rate and you can make great use of the historic building and luxury interior. Options are available for intimate weddings, small meetings and much larger events.
The 4-star Imperial Hotel Blackpool is on the more peaceful part of the North Shore. If you fancy heading to the North Pier, it is just 1,000 yards from the hotel. You can also use the trams to travel to all the attractions; they all aren’t far away.
