Like everyone else, we were there for the Blackpool Dance Festival. Although I gave it an excellent rating, don't expect five-star hotel-type accomodations. It was literally like staying with family in their guest room. The room was small. The bathroom was small. The shower hot water was hard to adjust (I took a cold shower the first night). The beds were too soft for our tastes.
So why did I give it an excellent rating? If you're there for the Blackpool Dance Festival, it was literally across the street from Winter Gardens and only half a block from the backdoor of the Empress Ballroom. The staff and owners treated you like family. Julie and Caryn were very helpful and friendly. Caryn called around to try to get us a car and driver for a day. Julie was always ready with restaurant suggestions. The breakfast was very good. Breakfast was traditional English and there were also juices, fresh fruits, yogurt and cereal available.
I would definitely recommend staying here if you're attending the Blackpool Dance Festival. However, you better make your reservations now for next year because most people have already put down a deposit.
