In the nicest way, this hotel was poor. Our room was number 3.. We visited with 6 friends for a night out in Blackpool, and it got started on a bad foot. The owner/s were pleasant and welcoming, but the upkeep of the 'Bed & Breakfast' was poor. There are better places too stop for the same price in blackpool.... More

When we got there we found no parking and after talking to the lady on reception she told us we were now staying at South Crest as there was parking there. Bedroom and Bathroom were tiny but acceptable for the price. Just a one nights stay in Blackpool. Found... More

We paid for a breakfast but there was no way i was eating there. Even my 6 year old commented on how... More
