The Kings of Blackpool Recognised with Awards

The Kings always aims to provide a warm, friendly welcome to its guests, providing pleasant, comfortable rooms with everything to help make a stay with us an enjoyable and perfect one. Our motto is “It’s always a pleasure and never a chore” and we want our guests to feel they’re staying at a “home away from home”.

Taking care of our guests is our top priority, so it is always nice to have our efforts recognised. This year we won the Tripadvisor travelers choice award for the 3rd year running. We were ranked as 9th best small hotel in the whole of the UK and 8th best in the UK for service too! This puts The Kings yet again in the top 1% of accommodation providers in the whole wide world for 2018.

In 2015 we were finalists in the Lancashire Tourism Awards “Guest House of the year” category – and we reached the finals again in 2016 for the “Boutique Hotel of the year award”. In 2017 we made the finals for the 3rd year in a row as best small hotel.

We kept our 4 star award with Visit England for the 4th year in a row. After winning the “Breakfast award” last year we were overjoyed the win the 4 star silver accolade this year.

We have also featured in other tourism awards; the “Luxury Travel Guide Global Awards 2016/7 and 18” and we reached the North West regional shortlist for the 2016 “Hidden Gems and Star Among Stars Award” in the Eviivo awards. In 2018 we have made the finals of the Radio Wave culture and lifestyle awards for the excellence of service award.

For us, seeing our guests happy and revitalised after their stay is the greatest reward of all. It is even more rewarding when they then compliment us with their comments on the main travel sites.

In 2015 we were a “Booking.com” Award Winner with a score of 9.4 and we managed to climb to 9.5 this year. Kings has  been a “TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Winner” every year that Paul and Tina have been in charge, plus we won the “LateRooms.com – Top Rated” in “Simply The Guest” Awards 2016.

On Trivago we are awarded with 93 out of 100 and classed as “Excellent”.

Our commitment to providing good quality food at Kings and our in-house restaurant ‘Faringo’s’, by using as much locally sourced and organic food as possible (along with our recycling and green practices), has been recognised with a “TripAdvisor Greenleaders – Silver award”.

We are not letting these awards go to our head, we are keeping our feet firmly on the ground, so you can rest assured that whether you stay at Kings or eat at Faringo’s you will receive a warm welcome and we’ll do everything we can to make the experience a perfect one.
