Stayed here with my husband and 22 yr old son (who has aspergers) at the end of June, and couldn't fault it. Our hosts, Andy and Bernadette, were lovely people and couldn't do enough. On arrival, Andy gave my son a choice of single rooms to choose from which was fantastic, so my son chose the one nearest our room. The rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean and neutrally decorated. Breakfasts were sufficient, in fact we didn't need lunch. Loved the fact that you could get a takeaway for dinner and Andy let you eat it in the bar, which we did for my son one night, because my husband and I were going to Funny Girls so ate later. Speaking of the bar, there was a great selection of drinks, both alcoholic and soft, and at reasonable prices, not inflated as most hotels are. I also loved the fact you could buy a bottle of wine and Andy put your room number on it and kept in fridge so you could have a glass whenever you wanted! Lovely touch and I've never known that before. We would definitely stay here again and I've already reccommended it to colleagues. Blackpool itself is undergoing a major rejuvination programme and the promenade, beach side, is not accessible the whole way along. Its due to be completed in June 2011 and hopefully will be a big improvement. We also found a fantastic restaurant on the prom called "The Eating Inn". Not much to look at from the outside but the food was wonderfull and the waiter, who was on his own, rushing round like a whippet, did a fantastic job. One final thing to reccommend and thats Funny Girls Cabaret Club. My husband and I have been twice before and took my daughter and her boyfriend this time round (they stayed in a travelodge in case you're wondering). They absolutely loved it as we do. Fantastic night out and not expensive. You must go if you visit Blackpool.
