If your looking for a a cheap and cheerful night in Blackpool waters edge is the place to stay easy to book, very friendly welcome by the owner (Paul), a stone throw in distance away from pleasure beach, rooms are small and basic but cosy and just what we were looking for! Would return

Made to feel very welcome, very close to Pleasure Beach. When we arrived in the room there were sweets, champagne and heart confetti left for us. The room was well heated and clean. Will be returning.
