5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Once again a lovely welcome at the Thornhill from Gaynor and Steve. Stayed in room 5 this time for the soul weekend in the tower which was nicely furnished and very comfortable. Friends also stayed and they were also impressed. Will be back next year

Stayed for 3 nights, ideal central location in quiet street few doors from prom. Clean, tidy room, loved the lounge area. Guaranteed parking such a bonus. Cheerful, friendly owners. Will definately be back. Daughter, hubby and 1 year old cheeky monkey joined us for 1 night also made very welcome. came back after checking out to change clothes and have a coffee before journey home thanks for that.

Steve and Gaynor made us very welcome on our return to the Thornhill Hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We really enjoyed the meals and our room was excellent. Would gladly return and recommend.

Can thoroughly recommend this hotel we were met at the hotel , shown where to park and settled in very quickly, we were up to see the lights and the hotel's location was great , about halfway along the promenade so easy to reach both tower one way and pleasure beach the other. The hotel was situated one street back from the prom so was a lot quieter which we like, the breakfast in the hotel set you up for a good day and the owners were friendly and knowledgeable of places to go for meals , etc, the room was excellent , nice decor , en suite and a comfortable bed, we would definately go back.

As a gay couple, we always wonder what our reception will be when staying in a UK Hotel or B & B. We need have not be concerned aS the welcome from both Gaynor and Steve was wrm and genuine. We stayed in room 2 on the ground floor. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The main room is of a very good size, though the on-suite was a little cramped; but this did not cause us any problems. We decided to go for the traditional full English breakfast. It was lovely, not a scrap of grease anywhere and piping hot. The Thornhill is well placed. Close enough to be able to walk into town and see the Tower and the other attraction available. But far enough always to be nice and quite when its time to sleep. If you don't fact the walk into town then it is a short walk to he St. Chads stop on the tram system. £1.50 gets you there. So all in all a good stay.

We stayed at the Thornhill Hotel for 3 days, which is in a ideal position to get anywhere in Blackpool, just off the prom on a nice small road and we would recommend to anyone. Steve and Gaynor were very nice, friendly hosts who couldnt do enough to help anyone. Very clean rooms, ours was on suite with tea/coffee making facilities, very good food, 3 great breakfasts and one enjoyable evening meal.
We would recommend to families and couples.
