“excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Rob and Tina are great host really friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The hotel is spotless and the rooms very comfortable to be in you could not ask for more the breakfast is great really good quality, a well stocked bar and great company that we enjoyed most nights with our little boy. We have really enjoyed our stay with Rob and Tina and look forward to returning. I would highly recomend the roachvale to any one wanting an excellent stay in Blackpool. Thanks for a great holiday Alison, Pete and Mikey from Sheffield

Just arrived back from a week stay at the Roachvale, what started as a midweek break turned into a week. The Roachvale is the best hotel you will find in Blackpool by far. from the minute you get there to the minute you leave there is nothing that you could want for because the owners of the Roachvale will go the extra mile to make sure your stay is as pleasurable as possible and make sure you have everything you ned. We have been coming to the Roachvale for a few years now and numerous times a year and wouldn't go anywhere else. Rob and Tina are the most down to earth , friendliest couple you could wish to meet always interacting with their guests and take a genuine interest of what you have been doing during your stay. We no longer say we are going on holiday we say we are going to visit friends because thats what they have become. The hotel is spotless, the rooms are very comfortable and Rob's breakfast is legendary. I find it very rude that some people put reviews on here that arn't true just because they have disrespected the hotel and broke the hotel rules and have been caught out. At the end of the day this is Rob and Tina's home and they welcome everyone with the same kind manner and it is only for the safety of the other guests that these rules are in place. Utterley disgusted that he slated Rob in the manner he did.

Tina and Rob, we're fantastic, they made us feel right at home the second we arrived. Rob saved us a parking space and as soon as we arrived came out to greet us. We were welcomed like old friends and given our keys to our rooms. The hotel was spotlessly Clean and tidy. Tina and Rob reassuring us that if we needed anything just to ask. The rooms were immaculate and very comfortable. We had a drink in the bar with Tina and Rob and were treated like old friends once again. We can highly recommend Tina's full English breakfast. As we left for home Tina and Rob waved us off which was above and beyond what we had expected. I would not hesitate to recommend The RoachVale Hotel to anyone. Tina and Rob go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you for welcoming us into your home and looking afterand we look forward to seeing you again soon. Marie and Brian from Wolverhampton

I was very surprised to read a recent critical comment by someone who stayed here. I have stayed many times in Blackpool over the years and frankly have always found all the B & B owners to be very nice. This was my first stay at the Roachvale, but, this B & B has been the best. The place was spotlessly clean and the owners could not have done more to help my daughter and me feel very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for them. In fact we never had to ask for anything extra because everything we needed was already there. They helped to keep a car park space available whenever they could and Rob was out moving his bike to make a space available for me before I had even stopped the car.
Seems to me that the unhappy visitor must have been smoking in the bedroom with the window open - clearly not allowed. I am an ex smoker and from my own previous experience I know that smokers are not aware of the smell from their illicit puffing out a window. I can now tell if someone has been smoking in a room and for non- and ex- smokers this is just a disgusting thing to do. If they are that desperate for a smoke they should go outside and not inflict the effects of their addiction on the rest of us. I am ashamed to think that I used to do that sort of thing 20 years ago. Presumably they could have chosen to stay in a hotel that catered for smokers. I could advise them to stay at the Travelodge next time, they have very low standards and seem to welcome even the most un-house-trained guests. I'm sure they would fit right in there and leave places like the Roachvale for those of us who appreciate staying in a nicely run establishment.
I have no doubt that the unhappy visitor is a downright liar - they should spend more time improving their spelling, their manners and their own personal hygiene rather than making nasty untrue comments about decent people.
Looking forward to staying at the Roachvale next time we are in Blackpool.
