This was the 1st time we had booked a b&b with our boys and what can I say... The rooms were clean and amazingly comfy, the breakfasts were amazing and the hosts Steve and Dawn would beat anyone hands down on their attitude, friendliness and attentiveness. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was remembered and we felt welcome as... More

Just got home from a 3 night family stay at the Merginn and we were all very happy. Best b&b we've stayed in for comfort and cleanliness in Blackpool. It's out the main drag a bit but only a short tram or bus ride into town, exactly what we were looking for. Steve and Dawn are lovely and very helpful... More

The room was excellent and the breakfast will not be bettered! The location of The Merginn is great! You are a short walk... More

I was looking for somewhere to stay for one evening only in Blackpool. I chose the Merginn due to the excellent feedback left by others. I would just like to say a big thankyou to Steve and Dawn for making me feel very welcome. Shame about Steve supporting Derby though :). Thanks Paul

We have just got back from a two night stay. I can honestly say that our stay was faultless. I was greeted by Steve as soon as we pulled up. Within literally 5 minuites the kettle was on and Dawn was making us a lovely cuppa. We felt at home right from the start. The rooms were lovely and clean... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Merginn is situated in the North Shore area of Blackpool where you will find it quieter and more relaxing, yet still within easy reach of all Blackpool'€™s many attractions. Buses and trams stop each end of the Avenue. Gynn Avenue is a lovely quiet street close to the Gynn Square. We are only a 2 minute walk to the promenade, and just a mile back into town and the Tower. ... more   less
