I spent 4 nights at The glen, its designed with the comfort of the resident in mind, the tea/coffee facilities, ambiance and room decor is all of a very high standard. Each room was individually crafted to a high standard. While I was visiting Blackpool I became ill at John as proprietor was excellent in helping me.

I stayed at the Glen Guest House for 2 nights. John was an excellent host. It was obvious he wanted you to be relaxed and enjoy your stay. Had some lovely food and you can enjoy a drink at the bar in the evening if you want. It's about a 12 mins walk along the promenade to the town (maybe... More
