“couldn't have wished for a better place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2011

Family of 6 (2 teenage girls, 2 young lads).We chose the Wilmar on the strength of all the positive reviews we read and it was easy to see why Derek and Rhiannons Hotel was held in such high regard. Our rooms were clean, bright and homely, the beds were comfy, the Breakfast was marvelous and plentiful and nothing seemed too much trouble for Derek and Rhiannon who were warm and friendly and great with our children. There were also lovely touches such as a cup of tea as soon as we arrived, chocolate mints on the pillows and bottled water in the rooms. The location is perfect, a short walk (couple of hundred yards) to the pleasure beach and prom and just far enough away not to be disturbed by noise at night. A great family friendly hotel.We will definately be returning.

Derek and Rhian are fantastic hosts. We were warmly greeted, given a parking space right outside the door and then received a cup of tea which was lovely after a long journey.

Derek was very helpful when it came to choosing where to go out to eat and booking us the taxi to get there. We didn't have to lift a finger!

Our room was very comfortable and we had no trouble sleeping in a strange bed. My hubby said the cooked breakfast was delicious whereas I had chosen a simple toast and cereal - it was great to have the option.

We would definitely stay here again when visiting Blackpool.

I read all the reviews listed about the Wilmar and hoped they were all true. I was thrilled to discover they were. If you're looking for the friendliest hosts, a wonderful breakfast and clean and comfortable rooms, you'll be very pleased with what the Wilmar can offer you.

Rhianon & Derek, (the proprietors) were so friendly and welcoming, and couldn't do enough to make sure you were comfortable and had everything you needed for a pleasant stay.
The room was very clean, and the beds really comfortable. We stayed for 7nights and the bed linen was changed during this time and towels were changed as often as you requested it, although we were asked every day if we'd like clean towels.
Attention to detail was what we liked, everything you could think you might need was there, ie Box of Tissues in room, 2 x Bottles Water in your room on arrival etc etc.
Location was the south side of Blackpool, a quieter area, but still near a lot of attractions,
a tram or bus ride to the Tower for us as pensioners, but walkable if you are fit.
We liked the friendliness of the propietors and the superb breakfasts,cooked to perfection and a lot of choice.
We did also see they were very welcoming to children ...
In our opinion there is NO downside to this guest house and would recommend it to anybody ..

Cant fault it at all-Price of B&B was fab, -right on top of the pleasure beach, Derek moved his car so I could park in front of the place-cup of tea and biscuit on arrival & bags carried up stairs for us. Gave us a check sheet with breakfast foods on it so we could pick as little or as much as we liked-lovely food.
Really made our stay special and will definitely go back any time we go to Blackpool.
