We have stayed in a lot of Hotels, B&Bs & Guest Houses in Blackpool some good some not so much. The Oakland felt like home, was really cosy and the owners were very accommodating. It was spotless and obviously very loved and cared for. The family room we had ( 2 adults , 1 child ) had plenty of room.... More

Just returned from a three night stay at this lovely bed and breakfast and can't recommend it highly enough. I was staying with just my two children and the area felt safe and was more residential than the centre of Blackpool, which I preferred. The room was spotless and clean towels provided everyday. WI-FI signal was excellent and a selection... More

A friendly couple run this clean, affordable B&B. Near the sea front and a tram stop. It only took me 20 minutes to walk to the railway station so the location isn't bad. It's a lot quieter than places nearer the town centre . I will defi itely stay here again next year.

Huge kudos to Janine and Mark for what they're doing. We stayed just one night on 14-5-16 and we were in a small double room. Our hosts were very attentive, out room wad beautifully clean with colour coordinated decor. Absolutely no complaints here! If you're thinking of booking - do it! Thanks guys! Red & Pete Brettell.

Stayed here over the weekend with a mate. We had a single and a small double and both were perfect, clean and as you'd expect and hope. Accommodated our request to keep one room on a wee bit later to shower after the half marathon and even provided us some safety pins which was a bit of weird request! Would... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Under new management. We are a small guest house that runs our business on a home from home basis; we have nicely refurbished rooms assuring guests of high standards of cleanliness and comfort. Although on the quieter North Sshore, we are within easy reach of all the attractions Blackpool has to offer. We are only one road back from the prom and beach with access to trams and buses. All rooms have flat screen digital TV/DVD with freeview and beverage trays. Rooms are serviced daily with fresh towels. We operate on a room only basis so are rates are very competitive. There are several cafes nearby offering breakfast and other meals. We also have a large lounge with TV and dining area that can be used by guests who wish to bring food back with them or can order from a takeaway menu up till 10 pm. We hope you enjoy your stay at the Oakland. ... more   less
