Looking for smoking hotels in Blackpool? The Pearl welcomes smokers!
Many people find it hard when they go on holiday because there are not many hotels with smoking rooms.
No one wants to be stood outside on the pavement feeling like a pariah… That’s not a good holiday memory.
Luckily, The Pearl Hotel welcomes smokers in all of its 14 bedrooms!
In fact, the Pearl is one of the few hotels in Blackpool with designated smoking rooms.
Ray says: “We want our guests to be able to smoke in comfort. We have been told that, elsewhere, they have to hang out of the bedroom windows or crowd under the awning by the front door!“
But isn’t it illegal to smoke in a public place in the UK?
On 1 July 2007, a law was passed for a total smoking ban in enclosed public places to come into force in England.
However, there were certain exemptions, including hotel rooms (if they are designated as smoking rooms)
Where can you smoke at the Pearl Hotel and in Blackpool?
At the Pearl, we want all our customers to feel comfortable and at home in our hotel. So we allow smoking in our bedrooms – these conform to the rules because they are designated smoking rooms.
Having said that, the smoking ban remains in force throughout the rest of the hotel and you are not allowed to smoke in any of the public places in Blackpool, including the bars and restaurants.
In October 2010, Conservative MP, David Nuttall, attempted to get the law amended to exempt private members’ clubs and pubs from the smoking ban. However it was defeated in the House of Commons on its first reading.
Other Exemptions to the law include:
- bus shelters (provided they are less than 50% covered, some councils however assume no exemptions apply),
- phone boxes (but box types K2 to K8 are included, because they are completely sealed)
- nursing homes
- offshore oil rigs (only in designated rooms)
- stages/television sets (if needed for the performance, except in rehearsals)
- specialist tobacconists in relation to sampling cigars and/or pipe tobacco.
