We were due to travel to Blackpool in July of this year and as usual faced the long drawn out prospect of finding good accommodation at a reasonable price and a good location. Well that's exactly what we found with the Glen Guest House. Before our arrival I was greeted with a very pleasant text from John to enquire about... More

Very comfortable and cosy room, perfect to come back to after a long day/night out. Lovely fresh breakfast in the morning. All the little extra touches made it stand out when compared to bigger hotels, including the host John who was very welcoming and attentive. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone!

Stayed here with friends when we went to see Neil Diamond. Location was superb, just minutes from the stadium and pretty central between the North and South piers, very friendly host, nice and clean and the breakfast was excellent...! Will definitely be going back....!

I spent one week at the Glen Guest house and I couldn't have left feeling any happier. John made me feel at home with his relaxed and welcoming approach and his delicious cooking. I look forward to my next stay at the Glen! Amazing breakfasts, cosy beds and fantastic location.

Absolutely stunning Guest House situated in a perfect location on a lovely side street between the Pleasure Beach & The Tower - everything is literally in walking distance.

Well, where do I start with all my praise for John, Barney and Molly? I cannot thank John enough for his amazing hospitality this weekend. He certainly goes above and beyond to please.
