First time I had stayed here, recommended by by partner who was with me. From the moment that we arrived to the moment that we left the owners were always on hand with advice and information about Blackpool. Rooms were tidy and en-suites need work on, which is taking place this winter. Breakfast were excellent and plentiful.

Once again on our wee trip to Blackpool we stayed with Andrea and Barry. People ask why you keep going back to same hotel. Well the answers are simple. Excellent hosts who can't do enough for you, hotel is clean and tidy, varied choice for breakfast which would suit anyone. Barry still doing his magic tricks and entertaining the kids.

Rooms are clean and comfortable, the one we stayed in possibly needed some updating but I was informed that all the en suites are being refurbished this year. The breakfast is excellent, you get a card... More

Took our two grandchildren (aged 2 and 4) for a weekend and had an absolutely fantastic time. The hosts were superb, they could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was lovely, room was clean and tidy and the kids can't wait to go back again to see the illuminations. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.
