John is very welcoming and an excellent host. He cooks the best breakfasts we've had in a B and B with wonderful locally sourced ingredients. Glen Guest House is in a very quiet location, ideal for couples. Near to the seafront and central to amenities. The bedroom was tastefully decorated to a very high standard.

This is our second time at the Glen guest house and just booked again for our third. (Luckily someone had cancelled for our dates). Out of over 900 hotels in Blackpool this is top notch. It's not even about the quality of the rooms it's about Johns hospitality and how he makes you feel so welcome. I've never met a...

Thank you for your review and kind words. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I note your comment about the room being small. As you booked my "small double room" I am confused as to what you were expecting. This is my smallest and cheapest room and is advertised as such. If you wanted a bigger room you...

Amazing service, Myself and my partner stayed a couple of nights in the glen guest house in Blackpool, and were blown away with the sterling service we received, from the moment we arrived to our departure. The whole place was spotless, with amazing attention to detail, from the bathroom to the bedroom to the dining room. The food was beautiful...

We stayed in Glen Guest house last weekend and it was excellent in comparison to some of the larger hotels we have stayed in previously. The attention to detail in the rooms along with John's exceptional hosting skills have made this a brilliant B&B.

We had a 2 night stay and couldn't have been more impressed. Everywhere is immaculately clean and well presented, the rooms are fully equipped and the breakfast (freshly cooked to order) is second to none. Combine these things with exceptional service and this ensures that we will only return to Blackpool with a booking at the Glen Guest House

A clean, comfortable bed, a bathroom that had all the toiletries you needed and delicious biscuits with the tea and coffee tray. John, the host, was most welcoming and really cared about getting everything right to ensure our stay was enjoyable. Breakfast was first class, the scrambled egg with smoked salmon was delicious. Will stay again when visiting Blackpool.
