“Billy duncan ,Peebles, Scotland.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Best value ever , going to Blackpool over 30 years and now found hotel to go back to .Well done Kelven and Helen everything was perfect. Room was nice and newly decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfast very good ,private parking but entrance a bit scary if you have a large vehicle. Location was excellent for all attractions.

Quite simply excellent quality at a very reasonable price. The whole guest house is modern, fresh and spotlessly clean throughout. I had the pleasure of staying for 5 nights last week and throughly enjoyed my whole stay from the comfortable en-suite room to the tasty breakfasts I enjoyed every morning. Helen and Kelven were superb hosts, very friendly whilst keeping up the high standards they so obviously set themselves, you deserve every success that should come your way with this venture.

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Rossall House to my friends.

Thanks again Ian

We have been searching high and low for a guest house/hotel and all prices as out of my range.

We recently stopped at rossall house previously so after contacting them they was happily to accept us back (we would booked straight away but another website said didn't have any spaces) was friendly and always professional was made to feel like we was at home so to speak I would definitely recommend this to families, couples etc.

Food was perfect couldnt find fault what so ever. They have it all cereal, toast juice etc all fresh. Me and my family love this place look after us all the time. A big thankyou to kelven and helen your brill :) (show some of then how to run a house haha)

My husband and I took our 22 month old daughter to Blackpool for the weekend (3 nights) and are so happy that we stayed at Rossall House. Kelven and Helen were very welcoming. The guest house is fresh and very clean. Our room was spotless and the bed was comfortable. A travel cot had been set up in our room and in place of the usual thin bumpy travel mattress was a comfortable, thicker, mattress. Our toddler was very content and slept right through the night. Breakfast was simply scrumptious. A spotlessly clean highchair was set up for our daughter. We forgot to tell the hosts that my husband is vegetarian and only told them at breakfast the first morning. The next two mornings my husband was given vegetarian sausages to his delight. The guest house itself is situated within easy walking distance of Blackpool's main attractions, we had no problem with a one year old! I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone with or without children looking for somewhere clean and comfortable with accommodating hosts. Thank you Kelven and Helen.

Superb guest house with superb hosts. We had a bit of a nightmare on our trip down due to our car breaking down but Kelven & Helen were still both there to welcome us at midnight.
Guest house is lovely & modern, rooms comfortable and spotless. Parking ample (not that we needed it with a broken car!). Breakfast great and super friendly hosts. Price for the weekend was super too. I really could not fault anything and would definitely recommend this to everyone.
Thank you Kelven & Helen & sorry again for any hassle we caused.

looked at several little hotels in blackpool glad we chose this one, just perfect from the minute you arrive till the minute you leave, if you want a friendly, comfortable and spotlessly clean hotel look no further highly recommended !

First of all I'd like to say what lovely couple Kelven and Hellen are! Warm and friendly welcome from Kelven and our bags carried up to the room.
When searching for a hotel I searched night and day for one with perfect reviews on tripadvisor and came across this wee gem of a guesthouse. We phoned up to ask for the "room with the bay window" for the last week in August and if we could have it room only. They were most accommodating and knocked off quite a few pounds. Brilliant! Although every morning the breakfast smelled so good we wished we'd taken it. The room was spotlessly clean and felt very open. The bed was really comfy and the bay window was a really nice touch, an added luxury if you ask me! It was in one of the quieter areas of Blackpool which suited me and my boyfriend just fine. And it was also in an ideal location for the pleasure beach AND the town centre, we walked to both most days! We can't say enough good things about this hotel, I can't wait to go back again!
I better make one tiny suggestion, on behalf of my boyfriend, and that is, that would you maybe consider putting in a socket for electric razors in the bathroom? It's not a major thing he's just used to that at home, his request not mine :).
Thanks again to Kelven and Hellen! We will be back.
Alana and Wesley

Hi ya, thank you so much for the review and what a lovely one you have given us - we are so glad you had a good stay and loved the smell of our breakfast (it taste even better) and so glad you loved the room. With regards to the shaver socket in the bathroom we did decide not to do this but we do have adaptors available for the sockets next to the mirror. Again thank you so much and look forward to seeing you again.
