“Great .Why stay anywhere else”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

My husband and I went here in August 2013 what a welcome the owner gave us . Bedroom was marvelous en suite stunning the shower cubicle was that clean I told my husband not to use it because it was absolutely spotless the extras she provides beats any hotel I have been to. Jo the owner made us feel that welcome you felt at home. At breakfast time it was great to be able to have your breakfast in your room her full English was great. I would highly recommend this to any couple as she don't take children. It was the cleanest and quietest place we have ever stayed in. Next time we visit Blackpool Barton House will be the first place I will try

Room Tip: The front bedroom was out of this world

Stayed for third time, and each visit surpasses the last.
Beautiful room, so many little extras, from slippers, bathrobes, toiletries to mini fridges supplied with bottled water.
Nothing is too much hassle for the hosts. A warm genuine couple who make you feel welcome, but not overly friendly to the point of intrusion. The perfect hosts.
Breakfast fit for a king, served in your room. Perfect way to start the day

Can not find a single fault with the place.
Thank you Jo for a fab weekend

Stayed here for bank holiday weekend. We are not normally B&B people, but when in Blackpool...!
It is not right to call The Barton House a B&B - it is more a guest house, and the owners truly do make you feel like guests. Breakfast in the room is a really nice touch.
A couple of points to note though - there is a no children rule (good!); parking, as everywhere in town, is limited; no bar (not that you have to go far to find one!); excellent location - two minutes from the beach, mid way between North and South piers; there is a doggy smell downstairs, but not in the rooms.

The desire of the owners to want guests to enjoy their stay really does show. Nice touches throughout, from a huge supply of toiletries, chocolates in the room, free bottles of water, breakfast at a time to suit you.

Would I stay again - of course! Why stay anywhere else???

Thanks all for a great weekend!

Just got back from two nights at Barton House in room 3. What an amazing mini break!!
The room was absolutely gorgeous, never have we slept in a bed as spacious or comfy in our lives!! En suite was half the size of the bedroom and absolutely divine. Free toiletries provided and so clean, fantastic!!
The breakfast options were to die for. All are served in the room as there is no bar or restaurant area so having breakfast in your room is another unique selling point, that's for sure. Hubby had cooked breakfast, all freshly cooked for a time that you want, Jo and John check in the morning what you would like to have. All food was of a quality that you would expect in a boutique experience and the continental breakfast of croissant, preserve and fresh fruit was the icing on the cake for me.
Hosts had the perfect balance of ensuring everything was ok and you had what you need, and leaving you alone to enjoy your break. Nothing was too much trouble for them, Jo even helped out with tickets we wanted to get for a show.
If you want an adult break, just off the promenade, mid way between the central pier and the south pier, this is an ideal location with the luxury you will love, for a great price. We are definitely returning!!

Room Tip: We treat ourselves to room 3 which has the perfect sea view, and space we love.

This B&B is great value the hosts were great. The room was large and clean. Breakfast was served in the room and it was cooked nicely. The only downside for me was that on entering the B&B there was a strong smell of dogs.
This however hasn't put me off staying in the future.

I'm a little late submitting this review, as that's me just opened an account with trip adviser.

My fiance and I stayed at this hotel for a weekend in July 2011, and this hotel was fabulous!! Very nice decorated rooms with an suite. We could come and go as we pleased with our own key, and it was a very central location. There was a minor issue that bothered me and that was the hall way, it smelled of damp dog. But this was a couple of years ago so they may not have a dog now. But you couldn't smell it in your room so wasn't too bad.

Jo and john...Amazing!! Couldn't have done more for us, breakfast brought to our room in the morning was lovely and started us off for the day. They were kind enough to invite us along one afternoon for a barbie also.

Would definetly return next time we visit Blackpool

Thanks to Jo and john for making our stay so welcoming...keep up the hard work guys :)
