The Kenley now under the NEW MANAGEMENT run by Mark and Josie, continues to keep up the excellent standards awarded to its previous owners Tony and Mike. The warmth, hospitality and generosity provided from the Kenley now in some ways has improved. One factor is the breakfast now offering even more and better choices, and not having to be ordered...

Just got back from a lovely weekend at The Kenley. Our first impression was wow and that's how we felt when we left today. It's the best b&b in Blackpool we have stayed in. The room was beautifully decorated and we all had a great nights sleep in the comfy beds. The bar , lounge and dining areas were all... More

When we finally arrived at the Kenley after a fairly long journey, we had a very friendly welcome from Josie who immediately offered us a very nice cuppa (and cake too!). Sitting in the awesome surroundings of the funky lounge, we had time to relax and unwind before facing the inevitable task of paying up the dosh. Unfortunately, there was... More

What an amazing stay we've had here. From the moment we stepped in the door, owner Mark has made us feel so welcome, to the extent that we want to pack him in the suitcase and take him home with us. We were welcomed with fresh coffee, tea and home made Dundee cake and was helped with our luggage upto... More

We've just returned from a four night stay at The Kenley. Well like most, we were a little apprehensive about returning after a change of ownership. But I can hand on heart say that there was nothing to worry about. In fact it was better than ever!! Still the same beautiful b & b but with a new twist. Extras... More
