Very clean, room cosy and warm, beds comfortable, excellent breakfast, friendly service nothing to much trouble. We will stay again. They even park my car and brought the suitcase in for us. Best hotel in Blackpool said my daughter of 14 years of age.

This was my first time in Blackpool and I loved it. The room was spotless and everything you could ever need was there ready for us. Easy walk to the seafront and shopping centre and secure parking for our car. David and Gill were both lovely and really welcoming. Would recommend. We particularly liked the Themed decorations in the rooms.... More

Can't believe there are places like this in Blackpool; havn't been there for years. A four poster canopy in a spotless room, a short stroll from central Blackpool. Breakfast was great with an endless supply of coffee/tea toast if required. Hosts were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Obviously a lot of work has gone into this place... More

Loved that David remembers your name and little personal details about you and uses this information to make your stay feel like home from home. The room that we used was a little small but well equipped and catered all our needs.
