We have always run our events for Cavalcadians, by listening to your suggestions, ideas and requests and it has become clear that many would like to move upmarket to a high-quality venue. It isn’t easy to find a hotel that offers the right combination of location, venues, rooms, facilities and pricing. Blackpool has very few hotels large enough to take the many hundreds of Cavalcadians that join us, and even fewer that can meet all our demands, but we hit the jackpot in 2017, with a fabulous new location that seems to offer us an exciting new beginning in luxury surroundings.
None of us are getting any younger and as we age gracefully we would all like a little more pampering, knowing that we can enjoy home from home comfort while also indulging in our all-day musical entertainment. Well our 2017 event at our new home started a fantastic new chapter for the popular long-term Blackpool Extravaganza, now with the additional word “Deluxe.” In 2019 we held our third event at the hotel and it was voted even better than the first with a simply stunning, fabulous entertainment programme, even better and tastier meals and the top quality rooms and venues all being given the big thumbs up. For 2020 we are back again and now the event carries on in the capable hands of Michael Wooldridge, who is keeping the same successful format witha few new improvements to make things even better again - DON'T MISS IT!
Location: The Village Hotel Club (also known as Devere Village Hotel Resort “Heron’s Reach”) Blackpool is set well back from the front in a quiet leafy back road within over 230 acres of its own grounds, which include an 18-hole golf course. To the front is Blackpool’s lovely Stanley Park, plus the Model Village and Gardens. To one side is Marton Mere nature reserve and to the other is Blackpool Zoo, with Blackpool Hospital just beyond. It really is a quiet, peaceful green oasis, with lovely gentle walks to enjoy. Yet you are a short hop from the bright lights of Blackpool’s centre, the Tower, seafront and all the traditional seaside facilities. On arrival the hotel is easily accessed via a short taxi hop from the main train stations, there is also a half hourly bus service, running from the road outside, around Blackpool. With most people arriving by car we are pleased to confirm the Village also has lots and lots of its own free, safe, parking. The hotel also has achieved lots of positive reviews on Tripadvisor, here are a few individual headline comments, each is from a separate review - “Great Hotel” - “Brilliant Stay” - “Bargain” - “Excellent Hotel” - Relaxing and Comfortable Stay” - “Awesome Staff” – Good Value Great Facilities” - “Fab Stay” - “ A Good Hotel In Very Nice Surrounding” - “Comfortable Stay” - “Excellent” - “Relaxing” - “Would Definitely Visit Again.”
Facilities: You will enjoy a classy, clean, quality room with massive comfy Signature Sealy beds, a HUGE flat-screen TV and free Wifi (in your own room), the bathrooms have both a bath and power-shower over the bath. Every room also has its own hairdryer, ironing board and you can enjoy full room service should you so wish. The hotel lifts service all areas and there is a choice of ground, lower ground, 1st or 2nd floor rooms to choose from.
Aside from the lovely setting (with plenty of outside seating/spaces for sunny days) and Golf facilities (extra charge), the hotel has a superb heated indoor swimming pool, plus an additional heated outdoor pool with sun loungers. There is also a steam room, all are free for Cavalcadians, as is the hi-tech gym for the more energetic types. For an extra charge you enjoy a little pampering to make you look and feel great at the Village Spa. While many keyboard fans travel solo, because their partner isn’t into the music, this new hotel is ideal for your partner to enjoy a super treat as well. In addition to all the facilities there will also be our own arts & crafts sessions to enjoy for the partners that aren’t into the keyboard part of the show.
The restaurant has a lovely, high-quality, Italian Bistro themed design. The walls are adorned with photos of iconic stars from the golden age, a nice nostalgic touch, as you dine with images of Sophia Loren or Frank Sinatra! We have arranged for our own 3 choice 3 course buffet menu (starter and sweets are served at the table, mains are self service) with the promise of a furher upgrade of the tasty food for 2018, there will be three relaxed sittings with plenty of space for all. There is also a lovely bar area, which is set overlooking the golf course, with plenty of inside and outside seating, to suit your mood. Here are some images taken around the hotel complex..........
