My husband,two young children and I stayed at the Norwood following a recommendation from a friend. We found the hosts most welcoming after a long drive up from Cornwall with 2 little terrors in the car! The family room we stayed in was clean,warm,quiet and well decorated. We wanted to make the most of our holiday and so asked Geoff and Lorraine to recommend attractions for us to visit as a family group. They were both very knowledgable about the surrounding area and tailored their advice to us as a young family rather than give out the usual flurry of leaflets we've been handed before at other places. As a result we packed in lots of great activities and tried places that we would have not considered before which all added to the overall enjoyment of our break. Breakfast was plentiful and of an excellent standard, best we've had in a hotel in a long time. Geoff is clearly an early bird as he entertained all the guests whilst serving breakfasts and helped to join the guests together in conversation so as the holiday wore on it was like dining with friends every morning, not just people we had only just met. As we put the children to bed with happy faces and tired little legs, we joined Geoff, Lorraine and some of the other guests in their lounge bar on several evenings. They were great fun and full of stories but also very good listeners as I think everyone was so relaxed they all ended up telling their life stories!! No matter how late we went off to bed, we were welcomed again warmly with the children in the morning. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to The Norwood if you are thinking of heading to Blackpool anytime soon. Best testament to the place and the owners is the high volume of regularly returning guests that they have, always a good sign! I'm happy to go on record saying that we will join their long list and know that we will be welcomed back with a smile.
