“Fabulous Hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Mary and Gary were fantastic hosts my mum and I were made very welcome and they bent over backwards to help with regards to my mum's disability/mobility problems. The error in accomodation was down to lastminute.com NOT Doric House Hotel. Stayed 22-26 October 2012, we had a great stay and would stay again. Location was excellent in the middle of everything we needed. Rooms were spotless but basic. Gary took our bags to our room. Also, took us, bags to the coach station on our return home and it was emotional leaving we wouldn't have managed without him. Thank you so very much to you both exceptional couple lots of hugs and kisses from Doreen and Karen, Milton Keynes

Room Tip: Rooms on first landing has a double and single bed with ensuite

For a short break within easy reach of all the attractions you must stay here.
Got a very warm welcome from Gary even though it was three hours after the estimated time of arrival.
Gary took the bags up to the room and said if you need anything just ask, the room is yours, enjoy.He said that they prefer to leave people to get on with their holiday .
The room (7) was small but is ideal for it's purpose comfy bed , tea/coffee makings with the added bonus of an en-suite with shower. Family rooms are available.
The breakfast is well worth the money and is a must. You won't want anything else till late afternoon.Toasties and other munchies are available .
The hotel is on a quiet back street like many other places in Blackpool, the bonus here though there is hardly any passing traffic. The Tower is 5 mins away and Central Pier is 2 mins down the road.
You get a key to the street door so you don't have to worry about a late night out. Most nights were late but that was in-house ,draining Mary and Garys fair priced bar dry. ( there is a flat screen freeview telly for the anti-social in every room )
In fact a room has now been booked for the 'lights switch on' weekend the end of this month !

We stayed at this superb guest house from 16th-20th July we all had a fantastic time myself , wife , 14 year old son , 12 year old daughter & my mum . Mary & Gary where superb hosts during our stay and couldn't do enough for you . The rooms where spotless the beds where so comfy & the shower was brilliant but the jewel in the crown had to be the best breakfast available in the UK . Bacon ,eggs , sausage , beans , hash browns , black pudding , loads of toast & for the Scottish sliced haggis . Also for the healthy conscious cereal , orange juice & all the usual healthy food is also available . Mary & Gary are so helpful to all the guests they will recommend where to go , best places to eat & where to go for a cheap & cheerful night out . At the end of everyday we always ended up back at the bar at the guesthouse along with all the other residents for a little nightcap or six . If you ever plan a trip to Blackpool and want a home away from home i honestly can't think of anywhere better than the Doric House Hotel a great place to stay in a fantastic location with brilliant hosts , well done Mary & Gary we will return very very soon :0)
