Had a nice weekend at The Glen. Very tasty and plentiful breakfast and lovely coffee. High standard of cleanliness. Would recommend to family and friends. John provides a good concierge service and arranged theatre tickets for our party.

This Guest House is perfectly charming and John, the manager and our host, was an absolute delight - informative, helpful and extremely friendly (his breakfasts were awesome too). As a ballroom dancer, I'm in Blackpool fairly often and I would strongly recommend the Glen as a great retreat from the stress of the competitions. It's only two stops by tram... More

My wife and I have just returned from a Northern Soul weekend away with our friends staying at the excellent Glen Guest House. The Glen is ideally situated, a 2 minute walk to the bottom of the road puts you on the front by the Central Pier. The house is tastefully decorated and the rooms are spotlessly clean with lovely...

A warm welcome awaits you at The Glen Guest House. Quality accommodation in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.The Glen Guest House is based in a quiet location in the South Shore of Blackpool. The Glen is just off the Promenade and ideally positioned between The Tower and the Pleasure Beach. We are 10 to 15 minutes walk from Blackpool Tower. There is free on site parking facilities for every room which is covered by 24hr CCTV. All rooms are en-suite (en suites have just been upgraded with electric showers and new decoration)and have been decorated to a modern high standard with stylish furnishings and decor. The rooms are well equipped with fresh bed linen, hand and bath towels and a selection of toiletries. The rooms also have tea and coffee making facilities, hairdryers and flat screen TV's with freeview and built-in DVD players for your entertainment. There are a selection of DVD's available to watch if required. There is also free Wifi available.I have also reinstated the bar which is now fully stocked with very reasonably priced drinks. So pop in for a drink before going to explore what Blackpool has to offer. New for 2014 is a discount card that is free to guests and offers a huge variety of discounts, from restaurants to clubs to Funny girls , etc. Just ask for your card on check in. I look forward to welcoming you to The Glen Guest House, Blackpool. Kind regards, John ... more   less
