Thanks very much for the hospitality, steve bent over backwards to help with every need, even helping to carry our bags up to the room, and giving us parking space at the last minute. If you book via trip advisor like us then DONT BOOK via travel republic......even if it is a couple of pounds cheaper, book with another agent... More

The Merginn provided us with a good starting base for myself and young daughters trip to explore and have fun in Blackpool. The hotel is well situated at the North end and within 5 minutes walking distance of the regular teams that pass by ! Sure this is no 5 star Ritz hotel but a small we'll run family guest... More

We chose the Merginn initially because we like the Gynn area and being at the quieter end of Blackpool. We also needed 3 bedrooms for our needs as we were a family of 7 and 3 generations. Steve and Dawn were lovely hosts and made us all feel relaxed. .even the shy toddlers. The full English breakfast every morning was... More

We booked two rooms to attend a local convention at the Hilton hotel having read the reviews and our first impressions we knew we had made the right choice. The service was exceptional and the rooms spotless. Breakfast was lovely and for six pound I don't think you can find a better breakfast anywhere! The location was quiet and we... More

Just back from The Mergin, Steve and Dawn made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed Breakfast on both mornings. The location at the North shore is ideal if like me you prefer to be out of the town yet is a short tram ride from all the attractions.

Well we've had a lovely couple of days at The Merginn. Dawn and Steve are more than welcoming and couldn't do enough to help us. We opted to have breakfast and we were glad that we did, it was very good, plus if you wanted more tea and toast then that wouldn't have been a problem for them. We shall... More

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.
