Paid extra for a room with private bathroom, was well worth it- Bed was huge, room was spotless. Hotel is in a great location,just down the road from coral island amusement arcade and close to the main bars in Blackpool. Owner seemed really friendly,did what he could to make our stay more pleasurable.

I stayed here in 2012 and it was lovely, so came back may 2016 and it's obviously new owners, hasn't had a decent clean since last time I was there I'd say. Charged for the tele remote as if your gonna take it home with you. Awful, sink was dirty, not hoovered and manky!

The most welcoming owners with the best breakfast I could ever ask for from a hotel along with clean and tidy rooms with great service from staff, would definitely stay here again and would defiantly recommend to everybody else! The hotel is lovey and vibrant with friendly staff and a welcoming environment, suitable for people of all ages.
