“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Just back from a 4 night stay at the Rock-Dene and it was great. Andy and Bernie were so friendly and made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We booked the rooms for 3 people as had our 16 year old daughter with us and it was perfect as she was close by but also had privacy. The rooms were very clean and the beds were really comfy. The breakfast was fab, always freshly prepared full English and also cereals and toast. Andy and Bernie were great giving us advice on tram tickets, places to go and we were able to book cheaper tickets for the Pleasure Beach through them. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and we will definitely go back.

We've just come back from a weekend in Blackpool as a family of 4 with two girls aged 17 months and 5 years. We had a family room (at the top of the house), which meant we left the buggy in the downstairs hall, which was not a problem at all, but just a word of advice if you have really young kids. We arrived on the friday around 4pm and were met by Andy, shortly followed by Bernie who were so friendly and welcoming. Andy immediately went with my husband to find a free parking space for the weekend! We went up to our room which was spotlessly clean with a lovely shower en suite with a great power shower. The beds were really fluffy and comfortable and the kids bunkbed was very stable and secure. The guesthouse was full when we were there but we didn't hear a peep from any other guests, even those coming in in the early hours of the morning after the punk festival. Breakfast was served between 9am and half 9 and was delicious. very nicely cooked full english, with cereals and toast too. Andy was very helpful in explaining all the activities in blackpool and the discounts he could get us too. I would DEFINITELY recommend RockDene again. Thank you for our lovely stay!

Just back from a weekend in Blackpool with our 4 year old Grand-Daughter I can honestly say this must be the best hotel in Blackpool. Everything about it is perfect it's spotlessly clean the breakfast is amazing and cooked to perfection as for Andy and Bernie they make you feel most welcome. We will definitely be back . So if your heading to Blackpool there is only one place to stay THE ROCKDENE HOTEL simply the best ....

Room Tip: Great location away from all the noise and I would imagine all rooms are good we were in room 5 and...

Had a great stay at Rock Dene! Couldn't recommend enough, great atmosphere, freshly prepared breakfasts every morning and thoroughly enjoyable place to stay. Rooms were clean and beds so comfy! Andy and Bernie are great hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Very good prices too. Will stay here again.

Booked this hotel on reviews, wasn't dissapointed at all, if your looking for somewhere to stay in Blackpool LOOK NO FURTHER. Other reviews are spot on and looks exactly like the photo's. spotlessly clean,comfy beds and great breakfast, Andrew & Bernidette couldn't do enough for you, Also, please note attraction tickets can be cheaper to book through hotel.

Just got back from rock dene and it was absolutely brilliant. Arrived late afternoon, Andy showed us to our room and helped us to carry our bags. Room was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay again.
