“Absolutely Superb Easter Break !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2009

If you are looking for a "home from home" trip away, and a cost effective hotel, then this is it! Superb breakfast, as MUCH as you can eat, fantastic staff and very pleasant customer service. Evening meals are optional, but we all found ourselves well and truly full! We have probably put on some weight :-)
Highly recommend the Brincliffe and even just watching the world go by in the lounge / bar, it has a fantastic view of the sea. We have planned to come up in October, where the "Blackpool Illuminations" will be on. We simply cannot wait!
Rate this hotel 10 / 10 with absolutely no hesitation.

My friend and I stayed at the Brincliffe from 14-17 Nov and I have to say that we were more than impressed.

Both Sue and Elaine made us feel completely at home from the moment we arrived til the moment we left. Our room (no. 2) was immaculate, had a great sea view (out of a large bay window) and a great size for two people who frankly, aren’t the tidiest in the world(!) Everything was fresh and clean and extremely comfortable. There’s a set of bedside drawers and single door wardrobes at each side of the double bed, so there’s more than enough space for storage. There’s an LCD television in the room (with freeview) and fresh towels available whenever you require. One of my biggest concerns when I stay in hotels or B+B’s is the state of the bathroom, and I can honestly say if you’re staying at the Brincliffe this needn’t be a concern, because again, it was spotless and nice and bright. Breakfast was also great and hit the spot each morning! Although we never travelled into the town (we were attending an event at a hotel nearby) I have no doubt transport to and from would be easy, with both a tram stop and bus stop right outside the Brincliffe.

Just for info… we travelled from Glasgow by train, and were only £5 in a taxi between Blackpool North station and the Brincliffe (which we felt was also really reasonable).

I can’t recommend the hotel enough… and would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone. I’m hoping to be back in Blackpool next September and fully intend on staying at the Brincliffe.

This is our first time back to Blackpool for a few years now. Our last stay was overshadowed by the poor standard of accommodation. So we were slightly apprehensive about coming back, especially as the previous hotel was a few doors away from the Brincliffe.

But wow!, what a difference. From stepping through the doors we were met with kindness, friendliness and hospitality. We arrived quite late on Friday evening and were offered sandwiches. It’s certainly true what they say. First impressions count! Then the rest just got better.

Our room (16) was nice. Extremely clean and comfortable. Flat screen TV with freeview. It’s up a few flights of stairs but was no problem for us youngsters!! But credit to the staff, this was discussed on booking, and asked if this was ok.

We only had the breakfasts but were well impressed. Buffet style self service. Oh, and eat as much as you can. My kind of breakfast! We experienced the aromas around tea time, as we were heading for the door. We left mouth watering. When we come back next year I know where we will be having our evening meals.

I can’t emphasise enough how clean and presentable the hotel is. From walking through the doors you instantly know that you have entered a well run and looked after establishment. The staff were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. On the evening they took time out to sit with the guests in the bar area which was a nice touch. Whilst chatting to Sue over a few pints you could tell how much time and effort they have put in during the couple of years they have been there. And it certainly shows.

So, all in all it was a wonderful stay. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful and pleasant. Oh, and the weather was crap! But knowing that we were coming back to a nice hotel sure made up for it.

So thanks Sue and co for a wonderful weekend. I have stored your address in my sat nav for next year. Looking forward to it already.

On a final note. My fiancée commented when we arrived back home about how friendly they were and made you feel part of the family. This made her feel that she should be ringing them to let them know that we arrived back safely. As you would do with your family. Can’t say that’s happened before after any other stay. That’s sure a true reflection and credit to wonderful hosts. Thanks again. Will be seeing you.

Week of 7th - 11th July, 2008.
A carer for a disabled Wife, (Wheelchair user), from Birmingham(UK).
Having only moved house last November 2007 and having had some health troubles for twelve months, we were looking for a break to cheer us up from the strains and worry of events.
Blackpool was chosen as it is flat for a whelchair and has plenty of interesting sights to visit, like the Tower, Zoo and near bye resorts of fleetwood and St Annes.
We looked up sights away from the centre of the town for a more peaceful hotel and found on line what turned out to be a GREAT one in Brincliffe, in Bispham.
For the week it was only £280 for two people with full breakfast and evening meals. We arrived on the Monday and found a ramp for entry to the hotel, and the friendly owners there to meet us, and a welcome cup of tea..
The ground floor room was newly decorated, clean and of a good access size for my wife, and the wheelchair was folded up when not in use, just outside the door. All the towels and bedding was perfect, and we came and went as we pleased.
Breakfast was of a wide range, help yourself to what ever you wished, and plenty of food, I was putting on weight with two eggs, two sausage, bacon, fried bread, tomatoes + all the usually breakfast toasts, etc. And all were cooked well .
The evening meals were prepared by the hotel and were british recipies of fish one night, cottage pie another, pork and apple stuffing ,etc and with potatoes and two veg. All we had in the weeks stay was of a very high standard, and very enjoyable.
Even my wifes food was cut up in the week, when the owners found out that because of her disability, she only had one arm in use. They went out of their way to help and made our week in Blackpool a really nice time.
We will certainly go back to Brincliffe and Blackpool again and we highly recommend this Hotel to others.
David Parker, Birmingham.

We came upon this hotel by chance after having travelled to Blackpool without having booked accomodation and how lucky we were. Sue greeted us and showed us the room she had available. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We were made to feel very welcome by all the family and were looked after very well. We only stayed 1 night as we were meeting family in Cumbria the next day but we will definitely return.
