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

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

The Laurels is without a doubt the best guest house me and my partner have ever stayed in. Colin and sue made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived, they could not do enough for us.

Myself and my partner came to blackpool for the bank holiday weekend, unfortunately the b&b we had booked was a complete dive and we refused to stay there, so we walked around to find somewhere else to stay and we came across The Laurels. Such a warm welcome when we asked if they had any spaces, they couldn't do enough... More

Colin and Sue looked after us like family all weekend we spent staying at their lovely b&b. we felt thoroughly spoilt, they were warm, funny and kind, and couldn't do enough for us. Breakfast was delicious, especially the lovely free range eggs. We had a wonderful stay, absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Highly recommended.
