I'm a regular visitor to Blackpool and when I stay overnight, I always check in here. Paul and Steph are very friendly people, excellent rates for rooms, gorgeous breakfasts, lovely clean rooms and it's central location means everything is within walking distance. Can't recommend it enough.

They also gave us a VIP card for free as long as we gave it back before we left. Rooms were very basic but clean. Breakfast was excellent.... More
