We had a lovely weekend stay here at cranstone. Shirley and Sam we're very welcoming, friendly and polite. We had a family room which was perfect for the three of us. Breakfast was lovely, everything was fresh and you could ask for whatever you wanted. Would definitely stay again had a lovely time x

Stayed here in August with some of my family and we had a great time. Shirley and Sam were lovely and would do anything they could to help you. The B & B itself is about half a mile from the city centre and 1 minute from the promenade. We had a family room, two doubles and en suite. The... More

We only stayed for one night but Shirley and her team were the perfect hosts. Great location and exactly enhanced our Blackpool experience. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be returning.

We've stayed in many places in blackpool before and have never felt so welcomed before. As soon as you walk in you feel right at home!

We've had another fabulous weekend with Sam and Shirley at The Cranstone. Just what we needed! Lovely to just sit and chat if we wanted, meeting their friends, which most of their guests are introduced as! They also have a steady stream of guests who have previously stayed there popping in to see them while they are in Blackpool for... More

This hotel looks really nice online and has so many good reviews but I personally don't think it deserves the good reviews it gets. The rooms are just basic there's nothing special about them. And breakfast was apporling. They brought the toast out before anything else so by the time u got ur hot breakfast it was freezing. And as... More

Room is very cosy and clean. Stayed for 1 night and we had a lovely stay, good location not too far from pleasure beach. But the highlight would be shirley and sam, they are the nicest host. They are very accomodating and made us feel welcome.. Breakfast was fantastic.. Cant fault anything.. Highly recommended!

We went down for a few days stay in Blackpool with our two kids 5 & 3 and our stay in the Cranston made our holiday. The hotel is in a great location a short walk to the promenade and you have all Blackpools attractions on your door step. Sam and Shirley are a lovely couple who made you feel... More
