What a brilliant few days we had here. Steve and Elaine are so easy to get on with and cater to make every one welcome this was the second time we have stayed and will be back next year. Met a couple from Shrewsbury who happened to be there when we stayed before would recommend staying here to any one... More

Very clean, very hospitable, very nice place run by very nice people. nice. My problem was just two things. 1) The bathroom in our room was the smallest bathroom I have ever been in. It literally was 5ft X 5ft or slightly less. You could not move in the shower. The rooms are large enough to make the bathrooms bigger,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and we will take your comments under consideration. However, just to point out to trip adviser users we are a Guest House and not a hotel which is how we advertise ourselves and do not pretend to be anything more. Therefore our facilities are sized accordingly. We have where possible... More

Recently returned from our usual 5 day stay at the Arthington. Elaine and Steve are the perfect hosts and make you feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. The Arthington is situated on a quiet road between south and central piers being in easy reach for all attractions. All the rooms are well presented and very comfortable... More

We visited The Arthington due to winning a night there through an auction. From the moment we arrived we were amazed by how attentive Elaine and Steve were. We were offered a drink the second we walked through the door and we spoke for little while about our stay before we were taken to our room. The room we had... More

The B&B is a little gem! It's spotlessly clean, on the nicest street in Blackpool and the owners, Steve and Elaine are lovely. We were in room 1 and it was amazing. Steve and Elaine have thought of everything from toiletries, robes & refreshments in the room to small touches such as ear plugs in case the seagulls are noisy.... More

I have been in the Hilton in London and lots of expensive hotels all over England but this little place was the best one I have ever stayed in. The attention to detail is immense, even down to little A stickers at the end of the toilet roll! The decorating is amazing and ever so fancy. Not just the rooms... More

We stayed here recently as a treat for my 40th birthday. Upon arrival we were greeted by Steve who offered us hot drinks/biscuits etc. He then provided us with useful information on the accommodation and surrounding area. We were then shown to our room - wow - I was speechless. It was really spacious and finished to a very high... More

My wife and I stayed here for one evening as a short mid-week break. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the owners at the door. They made us feel very welcome and showed us to our room. It was very well equipped with dressing table, comfortable bed, TV, en-suite etc. The bed is very comfortable and the location is quiet... More
