We stayed at the Kenley for a long weekend as we normally do when we stay in Blackpool.
As always the Kenley is simply unbeatable.

The choices for breakfast are great and it even stumps me as what to have! So this time I opted for the full English breakfast on the Saturday and Kippers on the Sunday. Both were excellent.

We ate on the Saturday night and the food was perfect (As always) even if there was a tear in my partners eye as this was the last time we will be able to have a evening meal at the Kenley as Tony is stopping cooking the evening meals in 2014. That won't stop us from going back though as the hotel is so nice and welcoming.

One of the best nights sleep I have had in ages as the bed is so comfortable. Or that could be that the bed in room 2 is so big that my wife doesn't keep waking me up fidgeting as she was so far away, seriously I have to stretch out my arm at one point in the night to check she was still there.

I love staying at the Kenley, it gets me through my Blackpool visits as Blackpool is not my favorite place but the wife loves it. I am already looking forwards to going back to the Kenley next year. If I had to stay anywhere else in Blackpool I think I would be sad and depressed and want to come home but as long as we get to stay at the Kenley then I will keep taking the wife to Blackpool.

To sum up, Amazingly hotel with such nice design, lots of lovely little touches, great food, fantastic people and possible the best nights sleep you can get in Blackpool.

Room Tip: Room 2 has a huge bed but you can not get a bad room at the Kenley they are all amazing.

We have just returned from a weekend in Blackpool and glad that we stayed at The Kenley. This B&B is situated a few minutes walk from the promenade, in between Central Pier & South Pier. We stayed in a family room which was beautifully decorated and clean as was the rest of the B&B, there were plenty of little extras in the room which you don't expect from a B&B, ie Bathrobe & slippers. There was a great choice at breakfast which was nice. If there was one thing I would change though is the timings of breakfast it was quite early between 830 to 900, also if you are having dinner it was quite early at 5pm and checkout at 10am but these are just personal choices and the timings could suit others. All in all this was a great B&B for the price & I wouldn't hesitate in staying here again.

A bit late in submitting my review this time but could not go another day without once again sharing my experience. This wonderful establishment is really starting to feel like my second home. I love the feeling you get when you walk through the door and you know your in for a real treat. Tony & Mike as always were the perfect hosts welcoming us with tea & biscuits on arrival. Everything was as amazing as the last 2 visits only this time we were able to share it with our daughter, my Mum & other friends. Our daughter Is still talking about the breakfast!! Unfortunately though my mum took ill on our last night and ended up in hospital. Tony & Mike were amazing throughout the whole ordeal and the following day when we arrived back from hospital. Thank you guys for your wonderful hospitality and all the extra help and support. We can't wait to see you again & look forward to our 2 visits next year. I never thought I'd be spending so much time in Blackpool!! Lots of love Lynne Glenn Mum & Nicola xxxxxx

Room Tip: Every room is amazing you won't be disappointed.

Recently stayed for the weekend and it just as good as the first time! Immaculate B & B with beautiful furnishings. Breakfast really nice and tasty and the owners are lovely!
Book early - we have for next October and believe me, this place books up very quick!
You will not be disappointed as The Kenley certainly does tower above the rest!

Just posted this review for "Need to get away" (Blackpool).

"From the moment we arrived we felt like we knew the hosts, nothing was to greater demand or problem, the hosts/hoteliers Tony and Mike are very good at what they do in every aspect can’t fault them, the meal they cooked for us was outstanding from the Prawn starter to the main Beef dinner through to the home made crumble again can’t fault it, this is a true gem and by posting this review we realise it will only make booking up again much harder but credit where credit is due this is far better than some of the top hotels we have stayed in London, they should be very proud in what they have achieved, a very, very first class B&B but at affordable prices."

Room Tip: Big tip don't look any further this is the one.
