We have just stayed at The Laurels for the first time for the Northern Soul weekend and we will definitely be booking up again. Colin and Sue were very welcoming and friendly. The room was spotlessly clean and cosy. The breakfast was lovely and fresh with lots of tea or coffee and toast. It is within easy walking distance of... More

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

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
