“A hidden secret of luxury in Blackpool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This little hotel certainly deserves a 5 star rating!
We initially tried to get a room in the Hilton but it was completely booked out so I found this hotel on The net and decided to go and check it out as there were no other 4 or 5 star hotels in the area..
Well I must say that we have stayed in over 12 5star luxury hotels during our European and UK Driving trip and I would have to say this hotel would certainly be one of friendliest, cleanest and most welcoming hotels we have come across. Is is owner operated and the pride the owners have in the hotel just comes thru in every aspect of this hotel!!! Definitely DO Not Overlook this one !

Room Tip: All the rooms are superb!!!

this hotel was really good. it was the little things that made it and that didn't for me.
things like choosing a time for breakfast annoyed me slightly, i didn't like feeling rushed, like i had to be up at a certain time. the service was slow at the bar and we were waiting about for a while to get a drink just because there was only one person working and they were showing another guest their room. i thought the price was a bit steep as well but that was my only gripes.

The hotel was clean, the rooms were beautiful and they have clearly thought about their guests having things in the rooms that you would forget like plasters or nail varnish remover.
the food was lovely and all the staff were more than helpful.
overall it was a nice hotel in Blackpool and i would recommend it.

Room Tip: room 3. we never stayed in this room but it has a balcony and another couple we were with stayed in...

After many years and very mixed visits to Blackpool we revisited our youth and one of the great British holiday resorts for a family Birthday with a mixed group and were fortunate enough to stay in this beautiful gem of a hotel/B&B. What a surprise! So some background we have travelled and stayed in a lot of great places and this small hotel just knocked us out by its standard. On arrival Jo welcomed us and took us to our room (top floor) facing south and when she opened the door wow, just wow. From our first impression outside we thought this looks like a nice small hotel the reception and bar area was well thought through and modern, with furnishings that would not have Been out of place in a central London hotel like the Malmaison or Bloomsbury. As I said earlier the bedroom had everything, a great bed, hi tech everywhere and a lovely view toward Lytham st Anne's. Now we are a bit picky and we don't really hold back if there's an issue with a hotel, we recall the time when we had very little money and stayed in very dodgy places so when we now stay somewhere and it's not up to scratch we say so - so we have a sharp eye for detail, Number1SB has made an outstanding effort in creating a 21st century hotel in a classic British resort. For folk golfing or indeed hitting the strip it's sort of half way, a wee walk gets you into the action and the golf is just down the road. The airport and train station are nearby. Trust me we were really surprised by this great small hotel, two things count about hotels count the people and places, Number 1 South beach has both. This is a 5 star boutique hotel in the most surprising of places.

Great little hotel, lovely rooms, friendly staff and clean! Would def recommend this place to anyone it's lovely. The breakfast was excellent and it's a perfect distance from all the attractions. Will stay here again next time we visit Blackpool.

A small group of us had Sunday lunch at this hotel very recently. 2 of the group are locals and 3 were on holiday. The food at this hotel had come highly recommended we were really anticipating an excellent feast. We were sadly disappointed. Of our starter choices (chicken liver pate) had entirely the wrong consistency and was quite runny and grey, served not with the warm toast as advertised but some very sad soggy toast. The melon and sorbet was quite the most boring duo ever to gatecrash a menu. The roast beef with the usual trimmings though should have been the real star. The beef proffered was overcooked ( no preference offered) and quite tough with very little flavour, the 2 tiny roast potatoes were barely discernible from the boiled potatoes in that they were pretty much the same colour and texture (white all over!. Come on, a crispy roast potato....it's practically in the British DNA get them right please! The gravy looked suspiciously like a well known brand of gravy thickener. There is obviously a vegetable shortage in Blackpool judging by the tiny amounts served (I had 2 minute florets of Broccoli and one small tablespoon of cabbage which I didn't discover until the end as my beef had been hiding it. The presentation of this dish was very very poor. Other tables we noticed had been served jugs of iced tap water when we asked for water this was not given as an option, silly us! We had to serve the wine ourselves as the waiting staff (3) were obviously overwhelmed by the 4 tables eating. The desserts were very unmemorable, the cheese plate however was a good size and of good quality. I have no doubt the actual hotel is good if many of the reviews are anything to go by. I wish I could recommend the Sunday lunch, but we certainly won't be returning.

We had a one night stop and wished it could have been more. The room was well decorated, spacious and had all mod cons, very stylish. At breakfast the food was lovely, servers couldn't do enough for us. Would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

Quiet location south of all the frenzy of Blackpool, this quiet spot is a great place to relax and enjoy a really good small hotel that really lives up to what it says on its website. Stylish. Really comfortable rooms, wide range of choice for breakfasts, well-chosen menu with well-prepared food in evenings, friendly staff. Very, very clean and well-maintained. Nice touches in decor and fittings. Will definitely go again.
