Very warm welcome on arrival. Our room was a family room very clean with more than enough room for all our clutter, it came quipped with everything we needed and only had to ask for anything else. Dean cooked a gorgeouse breakfast to keep us going through the morning. There is a large relaxing room down stairs with plenty of... More

After 2 days of walking our feet off, we went back to the hotel and chilled out in the lounge while the kids... More

Excellent location, excellent breakfast and excellent hosts. When I went on to write this review today I see there is a review just added which only gives them 3 stars. I think people have to ask themselves what they are looking for before they book. We needed a Hotel just to sleep in at night, because it's Blackpool and there... More

We received a genuinely warm and friendly welcome from John who sat us down and had a chat upon our arrival. John also chatted to us each morning at breakfast time as to our plans for the day and gave us a few tips on where to go and produced some money off vouchers for attractions. You could not ask...

John I would say thank you for your review, but I am afraid I wouldn’t mean it. I am disappointed you didn’t feel you could speak to us throughout your visit, but then I suppose it’s easier to moan on an internet forum. I feel I must state we are a 100% a non smoking Bed and Breakfast. I am... More

Wow! What can I say except amazing. For the price you pay you will not get better hosts than John and Dean. The banter at breakfast was brilliant with tips given depending on your plans. Nothing was too much. Breakfast itself consisted of serve yourself juice, cereal, fruit and yoghurt and plenty of options for a cooked breakfast. Cooked breakfast... More

First class! John and Dean were great, you couldn't ask for nicer owner's. Really do their best to look after you and make you feel at home. Will definitely be trying to stay here again on our next trip to Blackpool.
