We stayed at Rio Rita for 2 nights during the weekend of the lights switch on. We booked on line a couple of weeks before and were so glad we found this little gem. The owners, John and Janice were very welcoming and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is very family friendly which was very important... More

Stayed for two nights and had a great time. Rooms are really clean and breakfast was excellent. John and Janice are lovely people who make you feel very welcome, but this is surpassed by Pip the dog who we were thinking of dognapping when we left!! Lovely place to stay and enjoyed chilling at the bar before bed.

This location was perfect. Close enough, but not in the middle, so quiet also. Owners were very pleasant and welcomed us. Breakfast was very nice and plenty of it, all freshly cooked. Rooms were basic, but clean. At the end of the day you get what you pay for and this was Good Value For Money so would definitely recommend.

You cannot find a more convenient and friendly B & B in Blackpool. There is parking to the back but this time we managed to get parked outside the front of the Hotel for free for five days. On arrival we were greeted by the owners and were made a nice cup of tea. The place is lovely and clean... More

We have stayed at the Rio Rita twice now and on both occasions our family ( including children of 6 & 8 ) have been made to feel very welcome. We have stayed in family rooms on both occasions and have found them to be very clean and spacious enough for our needs. Breakfast offered plenty of choice for all... More
