I booked for three nights b & b in a single room and when I arrived I was given a double for no extra charge. As it was quiet I had no problem using the shower when I wanted. The breakfast is cooked fresh to order and wholesome and tasty. I did have a mishap, one morning, falling whilst walking... More

I booked a room for a couple of nights based on an advert in local paper. I am little bemused by some of the reviews and was a little worried having paid online for the room. I would say two things to the harsh reviews. Firstly the Hilton is just across the road, pay their prices if you want luxury.... More

The Gynway is a clean and pleasant enough little guesthouse/B&B not far from the tower in Blackpool. The family room we were offered was very spacious, very reasonably priced and tidy with clean bed linen on all the beds. This room seemed ideal for us as we were staying with our two beloved dogs in tow. However the room despite... More

I was little surprised to read this as this nice couple had booked in saying how nice the room was and, they settled their account and then went for a walk. Upon their return I went upstairs to offer them a room change, [due to a no show] in fact the room next to theirs, this being a larger room... More

I too am a non-smoker and even when someone has smoked outside, when they walk upstairs they leave a smokey trail which lasts for some time...... If you had spoken to us at the time we would have probably been able to move you to another room. We have at this time renewed 5 of the 6 rooms including carpets,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We have been updating our rooms to improve our standard and along with this we have taken the step to make all of our bedrooms Non Smoking... We do have a nice seating area to the rear of our property in which smoking is allowed, open most days..... We are very homely and comfortable and have many returnees who come back again and again, a lot of these do not use or post on Tripadvisor. So why not give us a try, families and pets are more than welcome here. ... more   less
