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

The rooms are snug but had everything... More

This was our first visit here.....what a lovely place. The room, though compact was tastefully decorated and very clean. Breakfast was lush. Dave and Sandra were thoroughly lovely, and made a real effort with the guests. Lovely and quiet area, but still near to amenities. And town centre only a tram ride away. The wine was rather tasty too!!!! In... More

Excellent stay with friendly hosts. Bedroom was comfy, well decorated and very quiet. Food was amazing (we went for the db&b option). Dave and Sandra were great with our daughter, as were the two dogs and cat. Would definitely return.
