I had the misfortune to stay at this disgrace of a B&B last year with family and friends, and I can safely say it's the worst accommodation I've experienced anywhere before. When we were let in, we were met with the overwhelming stench of wet dog! Once we'd paid cash, as the credit card machine was broken, we were escorted... More

I have to echo the last few reviews I'm afraid. This was the worst place I've ever stayed! At the time of booking TA reviews were good & their own website made the place sound good, price was around midrange, not the cheapest but not luxury. We only wanted a weekend in Blackpool to see the illuminations before going on... More

Booked for a long weekend and left a day early, arrived on the Friday afternoon to be greeted by the owner in her pyjamas. Showed us to our room but that was all, didn't get shown where the toilet or shower room was. The room was dirty and the B&B smelt of alcohol and cigarettes. We didn't have any towels... More

I booked this place for a weekend away celebrating an anniversary. Plus paid more for a ensuite, I booked it mainly for the price that they were offering that was great. I did not get the best of welcomes and when I entered room "3" the bathroom was grubby and had a black film over it, and also the toilet... More

My friend and I planned a few days in blackpool as a quick get-away. After finding this b&b online, we were impressed with the cost of the 2 night stay in a prime city centre location. On arrival, we were early but polite enough to ask to drop our bags while we headed into town. We had no expectation of... More

Stayed here last week in July, 2015. No problems and will return. Owner lovely and chatty and very pleasant to be around. The cost for stay is exceptional, the location is a few minutes from the promenade and Central Pier. While we have always been lucky with car parking - it is luck to get a free space on Coop...

Came to the b and b this weekend. In general it was an okay place to stay. It was not the Hilton but if you want the Hilton you need to pay. This a generally average budget place. I didn't mind as it was just a place to sleep. Yes, the place does need a good amount of decoration but... More

Stayed 2 nights with our children. Really enjoyed our stay here and will return. Stayed in family room with on suit. Family run bnb and the lady was very nice and helpful. NOTE: very hard to get free parking space so we had to pay £6 for 24 hours at the end of street which was cheaper than some others.... More
