Car park adjacent to hotel and roadside parking, got day tickets for trams and buses £3.50 which makes travelling a lot cheaper, all in all a good time was enjoyed by me and my wife... More

Just returned from a short break at the Craigmore and can't believe our luck in finding this place. Clean, comfortable and friendly with a good hearty breakfast - what more could you ask for. Will definitely be back!

Nothing was too much trouble for them. This is our 2nd visit to this guesthouse and it is the only place we will stay in when we visit... More

We stayed in Blackpool for a couple of days as my husband was doing the half marathon. Looked at the reviews and decided on The Craigmore. It certainly deserves the great reviews. Karen greeted us- what a lovely lady. Nothing too much trouble. The first morning we couldn't eat at breakfast time because the marathon started at 9.30am so Karen... More

Just returned home from weekend. Fantastic place to stay very central. Warm welcome and a lovely breakfast. Hotel clean and tidy with everything you need.The tram/bus stop is just a short walk away. All in all a very relaxing stay with a good pub just across the road.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Karen and Richard would like to welcome you to The Craigmore, where our care and attention to detail has resulted in us being awarded the AA''s Prestigious Red Diamond award for four years running. Our recent upgrade to four stars makes us one of only five AA four star rated establishments in Blackpool. Our excellent location (being south facing and over-looking Gynn Gardens and the sea) is adjacent to Blackpool's North Promenade and popular coastal walks. All front rooms have the benefit of sea views. We are convenient for both tram and bus services that are located at the end of the road. Rest assured in the knowledge that we only trade on families, couples and mature adults only. The Craigmore is a no smoking, residentially licensed, family run private guesthouse. ... more   less
