We stayed over August 2014 Bank Holiday weekend and the guest house was lovely. Although it is down as a "small" double the room was perfectly acceptable to my Husband, even though he is 6' 3 and we had not problems moving around the room. It was clean, tidy and had all of the usual amenities. Pete was extremely pleasant... More

We found this Guesthouse on Hotels.com and booked for a couple of nights as the price was very reasonable. We were very lucky to find parking outside the hotel and we were warmly greeted and shown to our room. The room itself was fine, very small but it had everything one would need, including tea making facilities, ironing board, cupboard,... More

Yes, I actually stayed in Blackpool for three weeks for my trip down memory lane. I travelled all the way from California so a quickie weekend was not in the cards. Everything was top notch starting with the friendly, and very warm welcome my friend I received, the lovely room, to the wonderful breakfast every morning. I had planned several... More

We arrived at the hotel at about 7:30pm on Friday evening to a warm welcome by Pete who showed us to our room and gave us top tips on what to see, do and expect around Blackpool. He also saved us money by advising us to get our Tram day tickets from the local Spar in advance which was helpful.... More

The bed was really comfortable... 2 pillows each provided and the duvet warm. Breakfast was at 8.45 and fresh cooked full english... Delicious. Coffee was topped up and we had a choice... More
