Lovely accommodation. Karen & Richard were lovely hosts could not do enough for us. nothing was a problem. We were there for a week and got the weekly tram ticket for £14 each which Karen suggested to us. This was a fantastic saving as we used it every day more than once. Karen also suggested a few places to eat... More

Family stay 2 over 60's 2 30's and a 11 yr old. The hotel is fine though a little dated. Needs a good refurb but still the rooms are ok. The shower was useless and went freezing cold if you took the shower head from the holder, room was a bit "pongy" that good old musty smell.! Breakfast was fine... More

Comfortable room with the usual facilities. A good breakfast well presented. Tram stop at the end of the road I suggest you use it as a long walk to main seafront ( get the 24hr pass well worth a fiver) Great hosts

My review is based on the the money we paid for this guest house. Blackpool can be hit or miss but the Craigmore is far enough away from the town in a nice area but within walking distance. We had room 6 on the top floor at the front. Nice view in a cosy room with all one needs for... More

Located at the north end of Blackpool on Gynn Sq and right next to a tram stop! Parking outside is free and the hotel itself is very clean and the owners are very welcoming.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Karen and Richard would like to welcome you to The Craigmore, where our care and attention to detail has resulted in us being awarded the AA''s Prestigious Red Diamond award for four years running. Our recent upgrade to four stars makes us one of only five AA four star rated establishments in Blackpool. Our excellent location (being south facing and over-looking Gynn Gardens and the sea) is adjacent to Blackpool's North Promenade and popular coastal walks. All front rooms have the benefit of sea views. We are convenient for both tram and bus services that are located at the end of the road. Rest assured in the knowledge that we only trade on families, couples and mature adults only. The Craigmore is a no smoking, residentially licensed, family run private guesthouse. ... more   less
