£12m Blackpool Pleasure Beach hotel to open this spring

A £12m hotel at Blackpool's Pleasure Beach is set to open later this spring with construction work "well underway".

The 120-bedroom Boulevard hotel is being built on the site of the theme park's former Star pub next to its existing 157-bedroom Big Blue hotel, which opened in 2003.

The hotel will see the creation of 30 permanent jobs and 40 seasonal vacancies and will feature a Beachside restaurant, Ocean bar, Surfside café and Shoreside Conference Centre.

Amanda Thompson, managing director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, said: "I'm delighted with the progress which is being made at the Boulevard hotel and cannot wait for the first guests to be welcomed through the doors. The Boulevard hotel is going to be the resort's most stylish hotel and will help set the standard for luxury accommodation in Blackpool."

The park was founded in 1896 and has been owned and operated by the Thompson family since its inception.
