This has to be the worst B&B experience of my life. Hostile and unfriendly proprietor who lacked any customer service skills, grubby hotel and the worst of the reviews on here really don't sum it up. It is in a great location, across from a little park and near to Gynn Square tram stop. I think that's the only positive... More

We arrived at the brayton "hotel" yesterday afternoon (having reserved a room via Booking.com). My seven year old son and I went to the front door to be confronted by a bloke who, upon me telling him we were here because we had reserved a room, snarled at us and told us to stay somewhere else. The man in question,... More

Stopped here for four nights, a bit of a treat to see the local sights and the illuminations for my old Mum!! We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived, and until the moment we left. Loved the breakfast order slips each evening, made things so much easier and a great way on cutting down on wasteage.... More

Stayed here with my husband and little boy who is 3. We stayed Wednesday to Friday. When we arrived we were made to feel really welcome. The owner went out of her way to make sure my son was at ease. We stayed in room 10 and the room was very clean and looked as though it had been recently... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In the quieter North Shore area of Blackpool, the family-run, The Brayton overlooks Gynn Gardens a grassy park with childrens playground, and the Promenade. During the Illuminations, a stretch of the lights are visible from the hotel (2011 - 2nd September - 6th November inclusive). There is free on-street parking, generous cooked breakfasts and cosy en suite bedrooms. The individual rooms at The Brayton each have a private bathroom, and hospitality facilities with mineral water and biscuits. A ground floor room is also available. Many rooms have LCD TVs with Freeview, and all feature complimentary toiletries. Travel cots and bedding are available on request for the family rooms at a charge of £3.50 per cot per night. High chairs and baby/toddler cutlery are also available in the restaurant. Delicious full English breakfasts made from locally sourced fresh ingredients are served daily, with lighter options and childrens portions also available. The well-stocked bar offers beverages and snacks, and a selection of freshly prepared light meals are available from noon until 9pm each day. A 2 or 3 course dinner menu is also available by prior arrangement. Packed lunches can also be arranged. Just a 20-minute walk or 5-minute tram ride from Blackpool's lively centre, The Brayton Hotel is a mile from Blackpool's North Pier and is handy for Blackpool Tower, The Winter Gardens and a number of the major conference venues. The Hotel is ideally situated for Promenade access by foot or tram or car - one minute's drive so ideal during the Illuminations. On request, a free shuttle service to the town centre is available for large groups. The Brayton can also offer secure covered storage for bicycles/motorbikes for guests. The Brayton caters for single travellers, couples, families and group bookings but regret that stag and hen parties can not be accommodated. The maximum number of adult occupants in a family room is 2. The Brayton is strictly non-smoking - if guests do smoke in a room, then the total cost of deep cleaning the room will be charged. ... more   less
