Me and a friend found this guesthouse at the last minute for Bank Holiday weekend in Blackpool. I'm so glad we did! The couple who own the house are lovely and so welcoming!

The hotel is well situated at the North end and within 5 minutes walking distance of the regular teams that pass by ! Sure this is no 5 star Ritz hotel but a small we'll run family guest... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Merginn is situated in the North Shore area of Blackpool where you will find it quieter and more relaxing, yet still within easy reach of all Blackpool'€™s many attractions.
