Ellan Vannin Hotel

Reviewed April 1, 2009

We are a family of 4 and stay at this hotel twice a year. The family room is massive and the beds are very very comfortable. As the title outlines, it is like home from home for us with nothing being too much trouble. Have known Pete and Lorna for years and first started staying at their previous hotel many years ago and again went to them twice a year. I have stayed in many hotels in Blackpool and I dont think you will find a cleaner, more hospitable place to stay when they are in charge. The breakfast is out of this world Pete really knows how to do a full English with Lorna providing personal and friendly waitress service. Its a lovely walk into the centre of Blackpool (gives you a chance to work off Petes fab brekkie) and room has always been cleaned by the time we return. All in all, excellent clean hotel, great value for money with excellent hosts. Looking forward to visiting at Easter.

We found the Ellan Vannin very clean and welcoming, we have know Lorna and Pete for a number of years, and pleased that they went back into the Guesthouse business, so we decided to revisit, the work and effort was as expected top class, the rooms were very clean and bright and comfortable. I would recomend this place to all my friends with out any hesitation. I just don't know how the above review Heading Terrible relate to this Guesthouse, only that some people are very hard to please. keep up the good work and see you next year Doris and Jim

On arrival the landlady was leaning out of the window shouting things of a very sexual nature to some men whilst my 3 year old son listened on she couldn't even acknowledge us. On returning from a busy day we found the bed unmade, bins not emptied and no clean towels or cups. When I enquired I was told we had to use the same 3 bathtowels and 2 cups for the duration of our 4 night stay, if I wanted these items replaced there would be a £5.00 charge per night or else we could go and find somewhere else to stay! A very stressful and unhappy stay.
