THE NORBRECK CASTLE HOTEL

BLACKPOOL

 “The Complete Holiday and Entertainment Experience!”

 Blackpool - the UK 's favourite Holiday destination, offers something for everyone from easy access by road or rail, to seasonal shows, fabulous attractions, the famous illuminations and much, much more.

I am pleased to inform you that in June 2003, the Norbreck Castle was purchased by Britannia Hotels, which as you may be aware, is one of the most successful privately owned hotel groups in the UK .

Britannia Hotels are committed to a 7 million refurbishment programme to include the renovation of all bedrooms, public areas, conference and exhibition facilities and the exterior of the building

The Norbreck Castle is Blackpool 's biggest and friendliest hotel, situated on the North Shore , just a short tram ride from the town centre.

Over 400 bedrooms, including 20 adapted for disabled guests, and many with spectacular sea views are furnished to a comfortable standard with private bathroom, TV/radio, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer and direct dial telephone.

Leisure facilities are second to none with indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, solarium, steam room, whirlpool spa, gymnasium, beauty treatment rooms, snooker/games rooms and cinema.

The hotel has Conference & Banqueting facilities for 20 to 3500 people, so whether your event is large or small, the Norbreck Castle has got it all.
