My boyfriend and I were booked to stay elsewhere but ended up booking Sandalwood on lastminute.com for various reasons- Literally booked it and checked in half an hour later. Because it was so last minute, we could only get a twin room, which we didn't mind, but when we arrived, Margaret (the lovely owner) jiggled things around so we could... More

Had a wonderful one night stay at The Sandalwood on Saturday night. The room was spotlessly clean, light and airy, nicely decorated and colour co-ordinated. The generous full English breakfast was the best we've had - not just in Blackpool, but anywhere! Would definitely recommend this B&B.

Sandalwood is a large terraced house that - like lots of other houses in the area - have been converted to a b&b. I'm therefore basing my comments on other b&b stays rather than comparing to what I'd think of as a hotel - places like Delta, Hilton, Westin etc. To make that comparison would be like comparing apples to...

We stayed at The Sandalwood for one night as we were watching a show. We found the hotel to be very clean and quiet, the hosts are very friendly and helpful without being in your face, the breakfast was excellent. The price was very reasonable and it was ideally located for the North pier. We would definitely stay at The... More

We were looking for somewhere close to a charity do we were attending and found this on the Internet. On arrival we were greeted warmly and shown where best to park. Both hosts came and sat with us whilst we had a drink and a chat and we were shown the resident parrot and introduced to their son. Our room... More

I recently stayed at the Sandalwood on a B&B basis for a week. It was exceptionally good value and I can truthfully say that in all my travels, I have never come accross such fine and helpful hosts. If you give their establishment respect. Peter & Margaret will do all they can to make your stay a memorable one. I... More

The hotel is very clean and comfortable. I came for a week and would definately come back and stay here again. I had the single room which was very cosy. Margaret and Peter are so welcoming that it feels like home from home. Breakfast is whatever you want. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Thanks to both of you... More
