We have visited this hotel for a week's summer holiday for the last few years, and also had a long weekend for the illuminations on one occasion. Like the previous owners (Elaine & Kevin), current owners Christine & Pat give an exceptionally warm welcome to all guests and really go out of the way to make your stay a good one. The location is ideal if you want to stay in a quieter location rather than in a lively area, but it is still in easy striking distance of the centre of Blackpool - about 5 minutes away on a tram or bus (very regular service too) or about 20 minutes walk along the front. The hotel is on a corner at the intersection of some back streets, with its own car park. There look to be one or two dicey characters living/staying in nearby properties but we have never witnessed any trouble or problems, the area really is quiet and no problems with sleeping. The rooms are well equipped with dvd and Freeview tv's and the beds are comfy. The food is outstanding with generous portions and all home cooked. I would definitely recommend taking the evening meal for £7. There is a nice bar with adjoining lounge, which is open whenever you fancy a drink, there's no set times which is very handy. Drink prices are very reasonable too. The guests in the hotel all seem of a similar type with no noisy or troublesome ones which makes it a really good hotel for a nice relaxing stay with no bother. Any problem you have seems to be sorted straightaway - for instance the dvd in our room did not work properly, I reported this at breakfast and when we returned to the hotel at teatime it was already replaced by a new one. We will certainly be returning again. I'd recommend buying a travel ticket from the Newsagent down the road for travelling about by tram and bus, it works out a lot cheaper and is very handy.
