“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

The Glen Guest house is a superb place to stay, me and my boyfriend went there for a long weekend and it exceeded all our expectations. the rooms are beautifully decorated and come with all the essentials a hotel would provide. The breakfast is amazing, you can choose what you want for your full English (good for me as I'm a fussy eater!) and it is cooked to perfection. John the owner is welcoming, friendly and funny and Carlos is the same. We will definitely be going back in the summer! Everyone should go here!!

The Glen has to be without a doubt the best guest house/ b&b I have ever stay in. John the owner was very welcoming and helpful and best of all had good banter with the group. The rooms wer out off this world,with lots of freebies!!! ;) and extremely clean. Breakfast was beautiful and could pick wot u had on your plate with me being a picky eater was fab! We all really enjoyed our stay at the glen and this would be the only place we would stay when we come back 2 Blackpool.

Great value for money and close to the town so if your going to Blackpool the only place to stay is The Glen xx

We traveled down to Blackpool from newcastle 4 of us, to expect a good stay it was way over our expectations. We went off the reviews that are really good, experienced it for our selves and now know why all the reviews are brilliant because its a fab place to stay! John is brilliant very friendly & helpful. Breakfast is beautiful! The rooms are really nice there really clean and smart. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome by John and Carlos! We will be returning on our next trip to Blackpool without a doubt. I would advise people to go and see for them selves how good it is!

We had an absolutely amazing weekend at the glen guest house! Breakfast was gorgeous just what we needed to pull us around after a good drink in the guest house bar with john and carlos! I will definitely be recommending the glen to everyone who might be visiting blackpool, rooms were lovely and very clean, breakfast was gorgeous and there couldnt be a more kind and welcoming owner. We would have stayed another night if we could and we will definitely be returning to stay at the glen next time we visit blackpool!

We went to blackpool from newcastle for a weekend. I could not fault my stay in anyway at all! Rooms are beautiful. Service is absolutely brilliant, John is such a gentleman helps with anything you need, he runs the place really really well. We will 100 percent be booking up to stay again. We will be spreading the word. I recommend anyone to stay here that is looking for a really pleasant stay in Blackpool. The rooms are very modern And its well looked after, very clean. Breakfast is amazing. It is in a brilliant location as well not miles away from everything but not too close for noise etc. everything was absolutely perfect & we look forward to returning!!!!

We arrived to a lovely warm welcome from John who even carried my bag upstairs! We were really impressed with his B & B, everything was perfect, the room, the modern decor, the breakfast & the hospitality. We also enjoyed a wee drink & a blether in the bar. The attention to detail was just right from bottled water in the bedroom & a rose in a vase! We will definitely return & without a doubt will recommend The Glen to others. Molly & Barney were well behaved also!
Thanks again, Kevin & Jackie Hughes
