I've just enjoyed a decent night at The Osprey. My room was only small but spotlessly clean including the en-suite. Breakfast was lovely and surprisingly large and the couple running the guest house were friendly and pleasant. Well done.

We stayed at the Osprey for one night on my birthday and I wished we could of stayed for longer. I felt very welcome when I arrived and was given all important information.

We stayed at The Osprey for one night following a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed, the B&B is in a great location, near to The Tower and all amenities yet situated on a quiet street.

We decided to go to Blackpool for a family weekend away and amongst the hundreds of hotels and B&B's we chose the Osprey. And what a fab choice it was, Glo and Steve who run it are a lovely friendly couple who have the balance of running a B&B just right. The rooms are clean and tidy and very comfortable... More
