Just back from a 2 day weekend trip. Dave & Sandra restored our views on Blackpool B & Bs. Very friendly, spotlessly clean hotel, they couldnt do enough to help you & make your stay better. Great food & very reasonably priced. Will definitely be staying again.

The wife and I stayed for 2 nights, the rooms were super clean, owners very friendly and they cook a very good breakfast, would recommend. Only a 5 min walk to the Pleasure Beach, Amusements and Casino. The prices are very reasonable for the location.

Stayed at the Cresta for one night in July. A very friendly atmosphere and great value for money. Location is very good. Near to the front and easy to find when arriving in the town. Room very comfortable and a great breakfast. Highly recommended. Would definitely stay again. Many thanks :-)

Thanks Dave for our great stay at your B&B Dave is the friendly and talkative host of the Cresta. Very helpful in regards to where to drink and not to drink in Blackpool and great company. Good filling breakfast, nice small bar area and pool table, which we had to ourselves for the duration of our stay (out of season).... More

When we first got there, there was some confusion over our reservation due to the website I used, this wasn't the fault of the owners, but he accepted us in even before he clarified our booking through the 3rd party... i'd recommend to anyone, contact the hotel direct as they're friendly and ameanable. The rooms are snug but had everything... More
