“Bed and Breakfast at its best”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

For our first visit to Blackpool we decided to use Tripadvisor to search for a good bed and breakfast. We found the Laurels and found that the great reviews it has were spot on.
When we first got there we were met with a welcome cup of tea and our bags were taken to our room for us,
Colin and Sue were very friendly and welcomed us more like friends instead of guests.
Our rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable and freshly decorated. They were tidied, hospitality tray refreshed and cups washed, every day when we were out site seeing. The bottled water is a nice touch too.
Breakfast was again always greeted with a pleasant welcome from both our hosts who served a beautiful healthily cooked breakfast.
This is a great place to stay especially for couples as it is quiet, very well decorated and looked after. And they don't allow stag and hen parties.
We stayed in room 9 which has a great view of the tower. The Laurels is within easy walking distance of the sea front and the shops.
Colin and Sue are the perfect hosts who care greatly for their guests comfort.
On leaving it was more like saying goodbye to friends.
Thanks for a great time
Will definitely stay again

We stayed here after finding the Laurels on Booking.com and we were not disappointed. Colin and Sue are lovely friendly people and they made us feel very welcome. Our bags were taken to our room; we were shown how to work the shower etc in our spotless room before we went off to re-discover what Blackpool had to offer. The breakfast was just the ticket after sampling the nightlife too!

I thoroughly recommend staying at the Laurels and we will be returning next time we are in the area (without the meerkat and Scooby doo we acquired this time!)

See you soon - DJ Paul and Jacqueline :-)

We have stayed in 4 different B&B's in Blackpool previously and always felt short changed - but this stay at The Laurels was everything we could have hoped for and MUCH more! It's run by Colin and Sue who really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The B&B is spotlessly clean (unlike most everywhere else in Blackpool!) , the room was immaculate with TV (lots of channels) and an ensuite toilet/shower. Breakfast lovely too and we honestly can't recommend this place highly enough! It's situated within about 3 minutes slow walking distance of the town centre which makes it handy for everything. We'll never stay anywhere else!

We stayed at this guest house for two nights over a weekend upon the recommendations of the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed.
Sue & Colin as hosts run a high class B & B, a rare gem in Blackpool these days.
Amongst the plethora of discount, cheap, one night only rooms on offer, The Laurels is set apart by its standard, cleanliness, value for money and the service that Sue & Colin provided throughout our entire stay. They made every effort to ensure that we were more than satisfied with every aspect of our stay.
We were provided a parking space directly in front of the house. Our bags were carried up to our room which we found to be absolutely spotless.
Home from home comfort was provided, particularly each morning with an excellent freshly cooked breakfast.
Handy location for the promenade and tower and certainly we would not be bothering to consider any other accomodation on our return to Blackpool.
