Stayed 1 night for SlimeFest Saturday 3rd sept 2016 - Family of 4. Stayed in Room 4 - Double bed and bunks. Beds seemed clean and comfy for a B&B in Blackpool. That's about the only positive thing I can say about the room really. Room 4 is tiny for a family room, for me it's a double room with... More

Stayed here for 1 night, lovely clean basic hotel. Comfortable beds, had a good nights sleep. Continental breakfast (cereal, fruit, yogurts, croissants and toast). Great Central location. Would definitely stay again. Good for low budget

It's one of the best hotels for average budget people . Nice accommodation with good breakfast. WiFi is good. Rooms are clean and nicely made beds. It's on a fine road and quite near to the beach. Lunch and dinner places are nearby.

We recently stayed here for 3 nights. The room was small with 3 adults and a toddler but it was our choice (because of cost) to have a room with a double and single bed. The en-suite was tiny but as we were all one family it was ok for us. The noise from the toilet and water through the... More

I didn't have breakfast, so cannot commend on that. The owner was friendly and accommodating, but the room itself was not at all worth the money it cost for the stay. The room was tiny, with a bunk bed, even though it was listed and booked as a twin. Looking up at the top bunk, some of the slats were... More
