If your looking for a lovely clean, welcoming place to stay then Colin and Sue will be your perfect hosts. Only a stones throw away from Blackpool Tower, lovely home cooked breakfast included and brilliant value for money. The rooms can't be faulted Will definitely be returning :-)

Thank you both for staying with us and for your review, it was very much appreciated. You both timed it right as the weather shone through which makes any break away a much more enjoyable one. Keep topping up your tan and enjoy your football season. Kind regards, The Laurels. More

Sue and Colin are absolutely fabulous hosts. Best B & B we have stayed in for a long time. Spotlessly clean and yummy breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they advised us on places to visit. A wee gem to be returned to. Lots of love Margaret & George
