I particularly liked the venue for parking, and location. The rooms were clean and comfortable with modern decor and televisions. I also thought the new residents kitchen centrally located gave it a home from home feeling and i used it regularly to prepare snacks and Iron my shirts..
It was well worth the money , would i go back certainly, I don't eat breakfast normally but i went in to see what they offered and decided to have one, Colin the owner is a great cook and nothing was a problem.

Pluses for the hotel - clean, warm, spacious room, nice breakfast
Minuses - decor a bit shabby, matresses lumpy, no hairdryer or shower gel
Okay for a night or two. Very keen on payment as soon a you arrive

Unfortunately, it took us a very long time to travel to Lytham as there were accidents and road works all along the way. We phoned the Elsinghurst to let them know that it would take us at least another hour to get there and explained the problem. Exactly an hour later our phone rang to check that we were still going. Upon arrival, my partner entered the building before myself....I was still entering the door when I heard the the host ask my partner if he was paying by cheque or cash in quite an abrupt manner!! We paid straight away and were told that breakfast would be from 8.30 to 9.30 am.
Next morning we were quite pleased with the breakfast that was on offer and then we went out until 10 p.m. We didn't see either Mr or Mrs Godfrey at all that day.
After a long windy day I decided to have a hot shower before going to bed.....unfortunately the water was far from being hot....so I ended up having a bath.....in a very narrow bath I may add.
Next morning my partner started to take some of our luggage back to his van....this was at 9.05 am.....only to be told that we couldn't have a hot breakfast....but we could have a cup of tea and toast!! The host then 'politely' went into the breakfast room and turned the light off!!! We were quite shocked at this but carried on taking our luggage out ready to leave. When we went to hand our keys in he told us that breakfast is actually from 8.00 till 9.00 am weekdays. When we stated what we had been told upon arrival he said oh yes....it was a misunderstanding....and a mistake on his side. So if it was his mistake....which it definately was......why didn't he do something to rectify the situation?
Its a shame because even though The Hotel was very basic, it was also very clean and we had decided that if we went back to Lytham again we would go back there instead of hunting for somewhere else to stay. Having worked and lived in a restaurant/bed and breakfast myself, I do know that the host's attitude was very wrong and he certainly doesn't encourage people to go back there with that kind of attitude.

The Elsinghurst hotel is a great place to stay, I was there for five weeks at the start of the year and had a wonderful time. Colin and Barb's were excellent hosts and looked after very well.
The food was great, And st annes is a great place but a bit cold for an aussie like me.

We stayed at the Elsinghurst Hotel on a Bed, Breakfast and Evening Meal basis and found it to be excellent value for money. The food was top notch and the service was fab. The host and hostess Barbara and Colin were very hospitable and the staff very warm and friendly.

The accommodation was very nicely decorated and exceptionally clean, we had everything we required to make our stay very enjoyable indeed and we would highly recommend this establishment.

This is a very mediocre establishment. Upon arrival we were greeted (?) by the very surly hostess who insisted on cash or cheque in advance and would not accept credit cards. Yet the credit card number was taken when booking. We can see why now because if we had known how bad it was we would have found somewhere else to stay. We were given a room which had not been fully prepared for us, beds not made. We were then given another room. This room had furniture which didn't match and was very threadbare. . After a night out visiting Blackpool -- somewhere we had not visited for over 40 years and will not be returning to. We met the host in the bar and he was very friendly and helpful. Then on retiring to our room we found the beds were most uncomfortable and smelly. In the morning we had a shower which was freezing cold and would not warm up. We then went to breakast where we were served by the unfriendly hostess, full english ok if a bit on the small side. Then upon leaving left keys with unfriendly hostess which did not enquire if we enjoyed our stay or if we would return, very unsociable person, we felt and as we were only staying overnight for a funeral and knew we would never return we did not say anything.
