Brilliant place to stay, Steve and Dawn are great; Steve is hilarious and the hotel is clean and nicely designed. They have basic rules; stick to them and you'll get on fine. Will definitely be returning. Josh and Jen :)

I have only given The Merginn 3 rather than 4 out of 5 as compared to other b&b's that are similarly priced, I found this one just not quite as good as others. Don't get me wrong, it was a friendly and welcoming b&b. What struck me first was no dedicated reception area, it would have been nice to have... More

We are a husband and wife team with a friendly attitude towards our guests. Should you have mentioned that you wished to go straight to your room this would have not been a problem,... More

The Merginn is a great b&b which is very clean and in an ideal location (nice and quiet). Steve was able to accommodate my family and myself at last minute for 3 nights for a very reasonable price.

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.
