“Excellent rooms. Friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stayed at Rutlands hotel for one night in April and I couldn't pick a fault with the whole place. The rooms were kept very clean and were a lot bigger than expected. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it to make it to breakfast as I went for a walk along the beach, however I was reliably informed that the selection was great and everybody thoroughly enjoyed it. The personal touch made the stay for us, the man who worked at the bar was exceptionally friendly and went the extra mile for all of our requests, he had a host of skills and jokes that made everyone laugh all night.

I can't wait until next year!!

In a town that 'has more b+bs than the whole of Portugal' your spoilt for choice. This place however is a real gem, Maxine and Paul are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make you feel at home. No problem is too small so if you need anything just ask. The B+B is in a traditional style. Spotlessly clean and very comfy beds. The breakfast is delicious and served quick with lots of tea and toast. Excellent location and you couldn't ask for anything more.

Support the local companies, forget the big hotels, there dated anyway and you won't get better service.

hi Rachael - thank you for your kind considered comments. It was our pleasure to make your stay as comfortable as we could (especially as you were both running a 26 mile marathon!). Hopefully see you both for next years run or sooner if you decide to come on a girly break ;-)
Take care

I was in a party of 15 ladies enjoying a Blackpool hen weekend. We pretty much had the whole B&B to ourselves ! Our hosts Maxine and Paul treated us like family. We raided the bar on arrival, what they didn't have in they bought in just for us...thats what you call good service. Bedrooms were small and compact but spotless as were the bathrooms. The location was a 5 min walk from Town centre and equal distance to the seafront. Full english breakfast on both mornings with unlimited tea a toast was a highlight ;-) Would deffo recommend staying here to anyone. Thanks to Maxine and Paul :-)

Room Tip: Some room were doubles, twins and other had double bed with bunkbeds in, so plenty to choose from !

Have just returned from the most perfect weekend in Blackpool. 15 of us stayed here and could not fault not a single. The location was spot on, the rooms were clean and comfy, plenty to choose from for breakfast (the cooked breakfast wasn't even remotely greasy) and Maxine & Paul couldn't do enough for us. They were friendly, helpful and accommodating from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. The downstairs bar was very well priced and well stocked and we were made to feel completely at home. Would recommend it to anyone (and I worked in travel for 8 years so I'm very difficult to please!). Massive thank you to Maxine & Paul :o)

Small family run hotel in North Pier area of Blackpool. I recently booked a couple of rooms for a colleague and I when we attended a convention at the nearby Winter Gardens. The rooms were small (normal for Blackpool B&B) but nicely furnished, very clean and kept warm (it was February). Lots of hot water and good water pressure. Excellent tea/coffee facilities and Freeview TV in the room. Very friendly and helpful staff and a substantial well cooked breakfast. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Very reasonably priced. Thank you. Neil Collett.

Stayed for two nights during a mini heatwave in May. We had a room right at the top which was clean and comfortable. It was nicely presented with very nice bedding etc and all the facilities you would expect. The bathroom was very compact but perfectly adequate for the length of our stay. The owner was friendly and made an effort to speak to us as we were coming and going. Can't comment on the food as we didn't opt for breakfast. The location is excellent as it is just back from the main strip so still very convenient but a bit quieter than on the front. For what we paid it was excellent value for money and must be one of the cheapest around. We would definitely stay here again.

Just arrived home after a family overnight stay and I must say we had a brilliant time. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the rooms were very comfortable. On arrival we were told where the cheapest place to park the car was which was great and saved us money. The breakfast was fantastic with a great choice of cereals, toast followed by a good homecooked breakfast, which i must admit was piping hot. All in all we had a fabulous stay and we are looking forward to going back next year, just hoping the weather is little kinder to us next year.

I would definately recommend this hotel to other family and friends, it was definately well worth the money.
