Reviewed May 27, 2012

Just returned from another wonderful stay with John & Lorna. Room and service absolutely faultless. Cannot sing their praises high enough. We would never dream of staying anywhere else on a visit to Blackpool.

Room Tip: All rooms are of a very high standard.

Thank you John and Lorna for yet another wonderful stay, The room was a sheer delight spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Love what you have done with the bar and dinning room you have both been very busy. Breakfast was again 5 star with every choice imaginable. You made our weekend with my parents very special and we will see you again very soon and hopefully longer than the extended weekend.
If anyone is wondering where to stay in Blackpool at very reasonable prices just try the New Phildene you will not be disappointed.

What an absolute delight this was,with a friendly and helpful hostess,who did everything to make our stay most enjoyable.Breakfasts were first class with a wide variety of choices,both for starters and cooked breakfasts.you certainly didn't leave the breakfast table hungry!.Rooms were perfectly adequate and fit for purpose.I would have no hesitation in making fast tracks to the New Phildene,should I ever be in Blackpool again

Room Tip: rooms to the back tend to be a bit quieter as there is less traffic noise

We booked a standard double room for two through Booking.com where the pictures of the room seemed very nice, however when we actually entered the room we realized how mis-leading the pictures on the website were. Though tidy but the room was so small that we could not find any space to even keep our luggage. We had to stack them up one over the other. The bathroom was clean I would say small but still manageable. We paid 70GBP per night which was really high compared to the room provided.
Hotel staff was friendly and nice especially Lorna, but the idea of going back to the room during the stay did not comfort at all. To some extent we felt cheated as we have been to other locations in UK and haven't had too tight a place to spend our night in.
Room service was good and we were quite happy with the breakfast as we were vegetarians and Lorna took care of that.

Room Tip: Dont go for the standard double you will not fit in.

Thank you for your review on trip advisor; we are sorry that you were not 100% happy with your stay with us.
it appears that you were dissatisfied with the size of the room. Although our budget double rooms are not over large they do meet the visit Britain four star rating for guest accommodation requirements for both size and sufficient space for guest’s to move easily around the room.
It is your opinion that the room pictures on booking.com are misleading, we would wish to differ and would like to state pictures shown cover the range of rooms we provide and do not imply that our budget rooms are any larger than they actually are.
In fact booking.com would not allow misleading information to be placed on their site.
With regards to the cost: The size of the room is only part of your payment, It also reflects the level of service and facilities provided. Your visit was made during- peak season and of a short 2 night stay over the weekend, one of Blackpool’s busiest periods.
Another trip advisor guest comment who stayed in a budget room
Room Tip: Remember that the bedroom is only a small part of your trip and most of the time you are in it you don't care ;o) You can't beat excellent customer service and a good breakfast both of which you will get at the New Phildene together with a good location when visiting Blackpool.
Thank you for your comments

Lorna Hughes-Dennis
