We received a warm welcome by our hosts, Chris & Gordon with complementary coffee and biscuits which was a great start to our visit. Our room was light and spacious, very clean and comfortable with all the trappings of a hotel. It had a double bed, large chest of drawers, a two seater leather settee in front of the TV,... More

This is our third stay at The Avenue and it just gets better and better. Chris and Gordon are entertaining hosts and get funnier and funnier with each visit. Breakfast is amazing and the banter makes it extra special. Our room ( room 4) was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Can't wait to see you in October. Love Debbie & Barry... More

We stayed at this very welcoming homely B&B for two nights. Chris and Gordon were both very helpful and friendly echoing other trip advisor reviews. They suggested things to do and places to eat. Chris and Gordon were wonderful hosts - getting the mix of being helpful and giving us enough privacy just right. Our 8 year old was disappointed... More

The Avenue is an excellent place to stay when you're in Blackpool. We stayed for two nights as we were there to watch the darts at the Winter Gardens. Gordon and Chris couldn't have been more helpful, especially when my husband was a bit worse for wear the morning we were leaving. They sorted him out with some health salts... More

Second visit to the Avenue, and won't be the last either. Would highly recommend staying here if you're thinking about spending a night or two in Blackpool. Gordon and Chris make for excellent hosts with their warm and welcoming approach, also mixing it up with a bit of jolly banter. Our room was particularly impressive, massive shower, walk in wardrobe... More
