The Committee of Noah's Arc are pleased to announce that from 2015 our location for our
Annual reunions is to be the Imperial Hotel, Blackpool.
The Imperial is the most
imposing of all Blackpool promenade hotels, with its 160 bedrooms, function rooms for over
300 guests, and car parking for 150 cars, we can highly recommend this hotel to you.
Long used as a major conference centre by the Conservative Party, the Labour Party and
Trades Unions, the hotel now prepares to host HUSSARS!.
...and what a great deal for such a celebrated hotel:
Your 2-night stay is set at £49pp per night in a standard room with any additional nights
(Dinner, Bed & Breakfast) at the same rate. Remember that guests booked into the hotel
receive inclusive admission to our functions
- buffet Friday and Gala Dinner,
Saturday. Which means effectively, that you get Dinner, Bed & Breakfast, all of the
hotel's facilities, and free car parking inclusive (non-guests pay £3.50).
If you want to attend the event without accommodation there is a charge of £19pp per event, making
your stay at The Imperial the real value solution, and one that we urge you to take advantage of.
Add to this the concessionary discount of 10% off all bar prices during your stay (just show
your Regimental ID (provided)), at any bar in the hotel, and your Committee has no hesitation in recommending
the hotel to you. All functions will use tables of 10, making it highly social with no tables for 2
or 4 seperated from the main area. :)
Our entertainment plan has not yet been finalised but you are assured (as you have come to experience)
that it will rise to the occasion, we may once again see our Regimental Band making a contribution.
ALL bookings as above must be made with the Hotel and not via Noah's Arc. If you
don't have a booking (with or without accommodation) you won't be admitted. Please book early and
quote "Noah's Arc
" when booking. Tel: 01253 623971

We learned, shortly after publishing details of The Imperial hotel, that a problem had occurred
with the Imperial not being able to accommodate us for the Thursday. A large Trade Union have
booked the entire hotel from the Monday to the Thursday of our week and now, it seems, the
other large hotels in the vicinity have been pre-booked for the same conference, including
The Hilton Hotel (our next choice).
The proposed solution is that we are now all booked into the Carousel Hotel on Blackpool's south
shore. Graded by the AA as Blackpool's highest-rated 3-star hotel, the beautifully refurbished
Carousel on Blackpool's seafront has a restaurant, free Wi-Fi and free parking. It is located
within the area of the newly restored South Promenade beyond the golden mile and Pleasure Beach
in a quiet seafront location. Transport links are good with a tram stop outside the door and
buses to St Annes and / or Lytham if you prefer.
Our accommodation will be for Dinner, Bed & Breakfast at the same contracted rate (£49pp) as the
Imperial. All guests staying on Thursday 14th at the Carousel will pay the Imperial as though
they were staying there on this night. This makes it easier for us by only having to pay one hotel.
If you want to add Thursday to your 2-night stay please either contact me, or the Event Organiser:
