Those looking for a classy seaside venue in the North-West with an impressive space for corporate events will want to look at the independent Dalmeny Resort Hotel.
This overlooks the seafront at St Annes on Sea, a very British seaside town for families on the Lancashire coast a few miles south of very different Blackpool, and offers a modern, light and airy, high-ceilinged, white-painted Atrium Suite for conferences, presentations and dinners with a capacity around 180, depending on layout. One recent customer was a Porsche dealership that showcased its luxury cars there, offering test drives, and the suite serves as a fitting venue for the hotel’s own party nights, with a variety of themes.
Complementing the Atrium is a range of four meeting rooms for 35/70/100/200 delegates theatre-style and four boardrooms for 10/10/10/18. Bedrooms include front-facing luxury doubles with proper baths in the bathrooms and large balconies for relaxed alfresco dining and sundowner drinks overlooking the beach, weather permitting. The breakdown of bedrooms is 49 doubles, 3 triples and 61 family rooms – 40 for 4, 12 for 5, 8 for 6 and 1 for seven – making 113 in all.
Leisure facilities at the Dalmeny include two restaurants, two bars, a 20 metre indoor heated pool and splash pool with overlooking lounge, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, squash court, aerobic studio, gym and cinema. And for golfers there is the world-famous Lytham Golf Course very close.
