Positive Reviews

Location is great for Blackpool entertainment.

The Northern Star is a stone’s throw away from the famous Blackpool nightlife, with the popular Funny Girls show bar a short two-minute walk from the hotel. Outside of the nightlife, the hotel is also close to many central attractions such as Blackpool Tower, Houndshill Shopping Centre and the Winter Gardens – all of which are ten-minutes away on foot.

Polite staff.

The staff members at the hotel have received plenty of praise from past visitors. Always welcoming and providing service with a smile, they will make sure that all your requests and enquiries are dealt with accordingly.

Clean rooms.

The majority of guests that visited the Northern Star were happy with the level of cleanliness on display. They stated that their rooms and en-suite were clean in all areas.

Negative Reviews

Tired rooms that need some TLC.

Many guests have said that the rooms at the Northern Star are outdated and are in need of being upgraded. In addition, furnishings in some of the rooms were stated as being a little worse for wear – including the beds, which made sleeping uncomfortable for some visitors.

Small en-suite with shower problems.

While the small en-suite space was manageable for most, the shower was a bigger problem for previous guests. Plenty have lambasted the water pressure of the showers, while the temperature of the water was also troublesome.

Noise pollution at night.

As the hotel is close to the nightlife, it is only natural that the commotion from such establishments can be heard. Sadly, some guests reported that the soundproofing in a number of the rooms was not good enough to prevent the noise pollution from disrupting their sleep.
