my wife and I use tripadvisor to sort our intended lodgings , normally using reviews to decide where to go . After trawling the different sites looking for hotels I dropped onto tripadvisor to read up on our list of favourites .
The Birch House was a clear winner , all their reviews / reviewers rave about the place - how friendly and helpful the people are , how clean and warm the place is etc . I am quite sceptical but even I had trouble disbelieving 30+ ratings so we booked for a 2 night stay .
I am very happy to report that the other reviews are correct , it is a great place to stay , not least of all because it's for couples and families , not stags/hens .
We got a room on the lower floor , thanks ( i was hobbling around on crutches ) which was very clean and warm , as was the ensuite . All facilities in the room worked well - lamps , heating , tv , wifi etc .
Late evening I asked for red wine , they had run out but before I could change my order Heidi had shot out and returned quickly with a bottle . Nothing was too much trouble for either Kevin and Heidi or their hard working kids .
Breakfast is immense - juice , coffee , cereal , full english and toast , can't knock that .
Location wise the Birch House is near to some of the major attractions like the tower and the winter gardens , but far enough out that we didn't get woken by stags / hens in the early hours of the morning ( just the Dingle family in the next room ! )
I have to agree with the other reviewers , this is an excellent place to stay if your holidaying in Blackpool , we will be returning summer time next year and intend to stay here .
Thank you K + H for your attention and hospitality .
