Stayed here for two nights while I was up in Blackpool house hunting in the surrounding area. The hotel was very clean and the room I had was just as good as the one that I had on my last visit to Blackpool when I stayed at the Imperial Hotel. The bed was comfortable and the en-suite although a bit... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Chaps. The hotel rooms are of fantastic decor and everything is spotlessly clean. I stayed in an ensuite double for £30 a night and the room was sufficiently big and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have encountered, a real nice deep mattress and pillows with scatters of small silk cushions,...

Booked last minute on the spur of the moment as it was recommended and not expecting much as we have not stayed in many nice gay guest houses in Blackpool. Wow what a change to see people considering that people in the gay community still have standards. The hotel was spotless, well furnished rooms with lovely fresh white bed linen... More

Stayed 4 night room excellent , very friendly and a great breakfast , they could not do enough to help. And good value for money. As I was there on my own the staff made you feel very welcome in the morning breakfast room and was very good at recommending places to go and things to do.

Partner & I stayed here 13 June in the room on ground floor. Great hosts, and breakfast was as good as the hosts. Room would be a little better when TV is put on a swivel bracket. All in all, enjoyed the stay.

We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you enjoyed our hosting qualities as well as your breakfast.We are investigating the possibility of putting the D V D Television on a swivel bracket, but are a little apprehensive with it being a large 32 inches. Hope to see you again soon. More
