“"very pleasant place to stay in blackpool"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2010

after years of "" slumming it "" in blackpools so called hotels and bed and breakfasts,i have got to say we found a gem in the heart of the pub/club/shopping scene,we visit blackpool about twice a year for the entertainment ,the hotel is friendly and very clean and was very welcoming to all of our party,we found our second visit just as pleasing as our first,our breakfast was something special too,, i think these guys work hard to make customers enjoy there break .

I stayed at Lawrence House with my gay manfriend and extended family. We were welcomed warmly by Peter and Wayne, nothing was too much trouble in accommodating us. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and fresh from the cosy bedding to the sparkling en-suite. With the in-house bar and karaoke, (optional), entertainment was raucously funny. I defy you to get the mike from Wayne. The train station is a 2 minute mince from the Hotel for those travelling by rail and the town centre, promenade, and fantastic gay scene are but 5 minutes away. The Hotel's breakfast sets you up for the day ahead too, allowing you time beforehand to have a lie in or a pamper in the en-suite before sitting down to indulge. Will definitely stay again and recommend to friends

It was my 50th birthday celebration/commiseration - so me, my sister, brother and his partner decided to celebrate in style with a trip to Blackpool! During our stay we were made to feel so welcome, so I would like to share my experience with everyone as I cannot strongly recommend this venue.

The owners: Peter and Wayne were truly delightful - warm, friendly, funny and very attentive - nothing was too much trouble for them.

The venue: It was very comfortable, warm and cosy, clean and well decorated. The proprietors are meticulous ensuring the establishment is clean tidy and well maintained. Their refurbishment and overhaul of the hotel was a labour of love, a reflection of their personalities, and it shows as it is well worth the effort.

The rooms: Were smart and spotlessly clean - the bedding (which they launder themselves) was lovely and very fresh smelling!

Food: Was excellent with high quality ingredients used, which was always served with a smile.

A truly awesome experience - which I certainly want to repeat (preferably when it is warmer).

Only downside was - Blackpool city council closed lots of the sea front and all the tram lines while we were there and we had missed the illuminations! Oh well, didnt detract from our fun!

Bless you both - you made my 50th birthday celebration a week end to remember! Thank you.

We spent the weekend in what must surely be one of the friendliest, cleanest and cosiest hotels in Blackpool. It is conveniently situated a short walk from the Blackpool North Railway Station and an even shorter walk from the sea front, yet tucked away enough to avoid being disturbed by the crowds and late night revelers. Proprietors Peter and Wayne were incredibly welcoming and hospitable, not to mention entertaining, and have a good knowledge of local venues and attractions. I would heartily recommend Lawrence House Hotel to anybody visiting Blackpool.

I'm not a regular "B&B-er", but decided to come to Lawrence House based on previous reviews (very favourable!) and it is quite true. Wayne & Peter have gone all out in ensuring the comfort of their guests. My room was clean, comfortable; the food excellent. They were exceedingly helpful in all I needed whilst traveling to Blackpool.

The location is close to all the popular venues yet far enough from the noise & revelry to get a good night's sleep. I was treated like a old, dear friend and when sitting with them in the lounge, I felt like I was at an intimate get-together with good friends. I'm already planning a return trip!

A real find. Small, hugely friendly and immaculately clean gay hotel that puts five-star hotels to shame. The entire place was spottless, the staff witty and entertaining and the breakfasts generous with the sausage. Oh, and its moments away from the beach, the gay bars and some great restaurants. We had a blast!
