    Stayed at the gr8 escape every year for the lights. Always a great service, Paul and Steph great hosts. Rooms clean and modern. 2 adults and 2 children in our party so ample enough room in the large room. Keep up the good work. See you next year

    Great place to stay. The owners, Steph and Paul are very friendly and happy to help with anything. The rooms are clean and tidy and the breakfast is perfect. located a few minutes walk from the beach in a nice quiet area. I will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends and family.

    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.
