We've just spent 2 nights here in the premier suite for the first time along with another 2 couples. We weren't disappointed Sue & Colin are so friendly & accommodating. The place is absolutely spotless, lovely breakfast - we even had a surprise Easter Egg waiting for us on return on the Saturday which was a lovely touch. We'd brought... More

Seven of us stayed at the Laurels for the Modern Jive Championships from 7-9 March. Colin and Sue, the proprietors, made us very welcome. The place is nicely appointed and spotlessly clean. It is within walking distance of the central Blackpool attractions. We have no hesitation in recommending the Laurels to anyone visiting Blackpool

Thank you all for your company and for the kind comments. Well, what a weekend it was, as we were entertained by what turned out to be a very talented gathering of competition Jive bunnies. The event, "The Modern Jive Championships" proved to be a great success as they won through and returned with their medals, and well deserved indeed.... More

Every year I visit Blackpool for a convention and I usually stay wherever has a vacancy. From now on I will only ever stay at The Laurels. It is the friendliest, and best B&B I have ever stayed in. Sue and Colin are the nicest people in the world. They make you feel welcome immediately and there's plenty of little... More

I visit Blackpool every year and we always stay somewhere different. Not anymore. The Laurels is now our permanent choice, as well as being the place that we have recommended to all friends and family. Sue and Colin treat you like family from the first second you arrive until the moment you leave. The bnb itself is spotlessly clean, they... More

We stayed over on New Years Eve: we were going to The Tower Ballroom for the night and wanted somewhere within a short walk (it's about 5 minutes in heels). Colin and Sue are ideal hosts: welcoming, friendly and helpful. The place is spotless and our room was ideal for our stay, comfortable and warm. Bernadette and Mike
