“Great place/ Great location”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Out of all the bed & breakfasts we have stayed in here in Blackpool this has got to be the best. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was brilliant! Paula made us feel very welcome and helped us out with cheap parking only a couple of minutes from the hotel. We will definitely return in the future. The hotel is situated right in the centre of everything.

We've been visiting Blackpool for a considerable number of years and stayed in various B&B Hotel accommodation. Four years ago we booked in to stay at the Craimar Hotel along with other members of our family and feel that we have definitely struck gold. Run by a friendly couple (Craig & Paula) who will go out their way make your stay extremely pleasant. The rooms are all en-suite and in pristine condition with all the mod cons expected. TV, Tea/Coffee, Hairdryer etc. Enjoy an almost more than you can eat breakfast as they seem to be able to accommodate any request within reason of course, always eager to please. There's a comfortable lounge bar with TV & Pool-table. The Hotel is only a few minutes walk from all the major attractions in Blackpool. Thank you to both Craig & Paula we are looking forward to seeing you next year.

Stayed the first weekend in October for 2 nights and it was one of the nicest B&B's I have ever stayed in. Paula & Craig you are fab hosts! You made us all feel really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts great, more than enough to eat, all branded cereals etc and the choice was fantastic. Only the usual noise you expect from staying central (suppling ear plugs in the rooms is a great idea). It's great value for money and you wouldn't find a nicer place for the price. You want bigger rooms and bathrooms then go waste ya money in a big hotel where you won't get the personal touches and friendliness of this local B&B. Paula and Craig well done in what you have achieved you should be proud of yourselves and hopefully we will see you next October when were over for the dance comp again. Only one request for Craig - we all want to see you serve breakfast in that frilly white pinny!

Room Tip: Room 10 was on the top floor at the back, lovely twin room.

This our 8th time at the wonderful Craimar. 4th time in October with my family for our annual weekend. As always Paula & Craig are excellent hosts and work hard to maintain a very high standard.They make our stay the best ever.The beautiful rooms are comfortable and spotless, and the breakfasts are the best you will find anywhere in Blackpool.The bar is inviting and friendly.This year we were advised by Craig that the legends show in the Sands venue was worth a visit. We went on the Saturday night and had a meal in the upstairs restaurant before the show. The show was fantastic and every bit as good as expected, we would certainly recommend this and will go back next time.

Been going to Blackpool twice a year for several years now and for the last four years we've stayed at the Craimar, I wouldn't consider anywhere else now.
It's central, warm, homely, spotless, very fairly priced, and your hosts Craig and Paula are very friendly, very hard working and very accomomdating. Who knows: I might see you there!

Room Tip: Pick a number....you won't be dissappointed.
