We travelled to Blackpool for a family wedding, and having already stayed at The Mercury a couple of years ago, decided to stay again. This time we also stayed with my parents after recommending the B&B to them. Once again Anthony and Debs couldn't have been more welcoming hosts. The room was comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding (and more than... More

Thank you for leaving another great review. Our biggest compliments are when people either recommend us to others, or return for another visit - you have done both, as we have already had one set of parents (and their friends) and this time you brought the other parents with you!! It was great to see you both again and also... More

We picked the mercury due to its superb reviews.. So we booked from Sat 20th Aug to Sunday and everything didn't disappoint... The 60s music room was lovely the owners were welcoming plus the two dogs.... Definitely will be coming back again as its situated centrally and just a perfect place to relax

We booked the 80s Rock themed suite and absolutely loved it! Anthony and Debs were friendly, knowledgeable and very attentive, nothing was too much trouble, and if you like rock music, you will strike up a conversation easily. Bruno and Tyson (their dogs) were also extremely friendly and made us feel at home. The room was clean and had everything... More

Comfortable stay with a friendly host and debs make a sumptuous English breakfast. They are helpful and attentive throughout our stay. We couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely considering going back to the same hotel in our future blackpool trip.

Stayed here in May for last two years running as part of a rugby weekend at football stadium! More or less right on sea front with easy walking to all attractions. Rooms are clean and to a great standard. Staff are friendly and welcoming! Breakfast is amazing, say no more!! Cheers and see you next year!!
