“Best bed and breakfast in blackpool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Best bed and breakfast in Blackpool and in a perfect location.
The greeting was friendly and helpful.
The room was very clean and the breakfast was delicious and kept you full all day.
Plenty of free parking.
Mick and Mally are the perfect hosts.

Very warm and friendly welcome by two of the three new management men,Mally & Mick who also helped us up all the stairs with our load of luggage.
We had an excellent breakfast, by Steve; could not fault it.

Disappointed after asking and we were told the two Italian ladies were no longer running the hotel (and cooking their scrumptious Italian cuisine).
Also we had not been informed prior to arrival by our booking agent, even though we had been booked in for several months in advance after lots of research into where we would stay.
One of the main reasons we decided on Beachcomber was all the reviews of cleanliness, especially noting the linen(and the Italian Cooking).
The room we had was small, very hot and smelled, even though they said we had their best room.
The bed was dirty and uncomfortable- some dried food/rice on the bedspread. There was what looked like makeup/powder smeared on the doona we were meant to sleep under-so we didn,t use it either. The sheets were stained (even the one we asked for in place of using the doona) and the mattress was old with bad springs- my husband rolled to the edge of the bed over night and fell out. My back was so sore in the morning I could hardly move.
The bathroom seemed clean, though more attention was needed on the toilet where old dribbles had run down the outside of the bowl and the towels were stained.
We were booked in for two nights but there was no way we were going to stay the second night.
My husband wasn't feeling 100%, so we made that our excuse to leave, sorry guys.

Well 'Waltsing Matilda' I am really sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We took over in June from the 2 Italian Ladies, and apart from the Italian Cuisine, have done our utmost to keep up to their standards. We have had many guests that have been coming for years, and hopefully will be coming to us for many more. You are the first guests to complain about our cleanliness and also the comfort of our beds. If you would have come to us with your concerns, we could have done something about it when you were here. Unfortunately you chose to make your excuses and leave without giving us a chance to rectify things. I hope people reading this review can read between the lines.

A very welcoming, clean tradtional b&b where nothing was too much trouble for the new owners.
We found this lovely clean hotel last minute after walking out of another hotel In Blackpool. The owners were extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming with 2 young children. It's less than 10 minutes walk to sea front. Would recommend if you are looking for a good standard 3* hotel with good food and friendly owners. Contact them directly as you'll get a bettet price.

What a pleasant surprise,worried it was under new management, but the Beachcomber is immaculate, white bed linen and towels lovingly washed by Malcolm. Tea and coffee replenished daily. A wonderful breakfast and the chef Steve and Mick the part owner always cheerful. So a wonderful stay, just wish there had been a lift......

Just spent a night at this B&B as going to a family party in Blackpool. Room was great. Very clean and nicely decorated as was the en-suite. All needs catered for. Tea/coffee making facilities in room together with little extras in the bathroom all went towards a stress free nights stay. The staff were really friendly and helpful. This really made for a pleasant stay. The breakfast was plentiful and very well cooked to order. Definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the place

The room I stayed was spotless, as was the rest of the hotel. The en-suite bathroom was very clean and tidy too. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the very large full english breakfast was very nice. Location is excellent for town centre, the theatre's and shopping. There are some great restaurant's nearby also ample, secure, parking at the hotel, front and rear.
