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

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
