“A return visit to the Craigmore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

Recently returned from yet another stay at the Craigmore! Many thanks yet again Karen and Richard. The Craigmore is a warm and welcoming place to say. I sayed on the top floor with a lovely view over the Gynn Square gardens and the sea, and at this time of year a front line view of the illuminations without stepping out of the door! The room was very warm, clean and tidy abd tastefully decorated. There was a TV, kettle and provisions for hot drinks - great for coming in late afternoon or bedtime. The ensuite shower room is spotlessly clean and tidy with some toiletries provided though I usually use my own. The beds are comfy too! It always smells fresh and clean when you walk in the front door. The lounge downstairs is welcoming as is the sunlounge at the front of the property, and the licensed bar available if you want it. I always enjoy breakfast at the Craigmore, with true home cooking, also the evening meal which always includes fresh veg and my favourite steamed puddings. I have stayed at the Craigmore many times, and always look forward to my return visits. It couldn't be better positioned with the tram stops just across the road and the seafront bus service stop very near by. The public car park in Gyn Square is very handy but I normally get a parking space just outside the Craigmore without a problem. I always look forward to my next visit and wouldn't consider anywhere else in Blackpool,

The weather was disappointing but not the Craigmore. This was our third visit. As usual Richard and Karen were the perfect hosts, excellent friendly service, good choice for breakfast which is always beautifully cooked and served. The room was spotless with comfortable furnishings, this time we had a room at the front with a view over Gynn Square towards the sea. The area is quiet but within easy reach of Blackpool centre.

This place is a brilliant place to stay, if it be for a week or just a short break. The rooms are spotless, the breakfast is to die for (worth driving 170 miles just for that!) The owners, Karen and Richard can't do enough to please you and make you feel like one of the the family whilst you are there, nothing is too much trouble for them. This was our second visit and I can't wait for our third. I have never written a review before but I couldn't let this one pass!
