Little bit sceptical having stayed in some dire accommodations in Blackpool previously, the website and reviews sold us to stay at the Dragonfly. Best decision we made.

We booked this over the phone last minute, lovely reception, lovely hosts, clean room and great shower! Excellent breakfast, and just all in all a very nice stay. Would recommend in a heartbeat, although it is a little out of the hub of Blackpool, but that didn't bother us.

Stayed over pride weekend with my partner and some mates (think we took over) - great hotel and Adam and Paul are lovely hosts. Very central and the room we were in was really quiet (though quite warm). Nice powerful shower to wake you up as well. Will be visiting again for sure :-)

Just a short review to say that we stayed in the dragonfly last night as we were in Blackpool for the night and it is a very impressive hotel. Very clean rooms and fantastic bathroom facilities. The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast was delicious. Will definitely book again when we come back.
