I will start this review by saying that the Laurels is clean and the hosts are very friendly (possibly too much). Having said this, I think a few home truths need to be said here. We stayed here on a Saturday night in bleakest January. On the phone, we were told that they do not normally take bookings for one... More

Stayed here as we were seeing Peter Kay at the Winter Gardens. Room had everything we needed and was spotless. Hosts were very welcoming and could not do enough for us. Breakfast was plentiful and well cooked. The guest house is in easy walking distance to the town centre. Hope to return very soon

Abby and I have just had a very enjoyable weekend stay at The Laurels where the owners Sue and Colin made us feel most welcome. Sue made us a nice cup of tea as soon as we arrived, and Colin took our bags to the room while we checked in. First class service! The rooms are decorated to a high... More

The Laurels owners Sue and Colin could not do enough to make our stay wonderful. The rooms and bathrooms are immaculate. The breakfast is "yummy" and set us up for a grand start to the day. The location could not be easier with a short walk to all the attractions. This is a jewel amongst the B&B's of Blackpool and... More

We arrived unannounced, looking for two nights accommodation. Sue made us very welcome. The accommodation was spotless, the facilities very good with clean fresh linen, towels which were changed daily. Lovely immaculate dining room lounge area. Breakfast choices were catered for, with wide choice of cereals, preserves or delicious cooked breakfast. The hotel is ideally located within close proximity to... More

Upon arrival we was unsure I what to find, but by god was we pleasantly surprised. Colin and sue welcomed us as if we were one of the family, spotlessly clean, fresh bedding and reasonably priced. Our friend was poorly and even sue took her a coffee to her room- these touches go along way If you want a home... More
