The room was small but had everything we needed in it. The breakfast was great with a lot of choice from cereal, fresh fruit, cold meats, toast and a great menu for... More

Have been staying at this hotel every year for about 8yrs, and wouldn't go anywhere else now. Hilary and Kym are such nice people and nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast is the best in Blackpool according to my husband. Whole hotel is so clean and well decorated and every year we visit some-where else has been decorated.... More

Just back from a two night stay at this hotel. What a lovely find will definitely be going back. Kym and Hilary were great and made us very welcome. Spotless rooms and breakfast was perfect with a great choice. Lovely bar and seating area outside . Thankyou for a great weekend. Elma ,Derek, Janice and Tommy.
