“Perfect place to stay in every way.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2011

This place is a brilliant place to stay, if it be for a week or just a short break. The rooms are spotless, the breakfast is to die for (worth driving 170 miles just for that!) The owners, Karen and Richard can't do enough to please you and make you feel like one of the the family whilst you are there, nothing is too much trouble for them. This was our second visit and I can't wait for our third. I have never written a review before but I couldn't let this one pass!

4 star with 5 star service. Richard and Karen made both our stays at the Craigmore a very enjoyable experience. Ticked all the boxes. We'll definitely be back again. Great location, top breakfast, quiet area, warm welcome, well stocked bar. Many thanks, see you soon. Paul and Liz.

Immaculately clean and friendly. You can views the Tower, beach and lights but are just seconds off the beaten track. Breakfast one off the best we have every had. Owners full of good ideas and places to go. Wish that every Hotel was half as good as this one.

We stayed here this summer and wish we hadn't. I was with my elderly mum and the gentleman didn't offer to carry her bags up the stairs despite seeing her struggle. The couple sit in the lounge at night monitoring you as you leave and return. The atmosphere in the house is very chilly. The breakfast is mediocre and the rooms are less than fashionable. Never again. The couple were unfriendly and we really didn't feel welcome. There are many many better places to stay in Blackpool. I've never written a review before but couldn't let this one pass.

We had an excellent two night stay here to see the illuminations. The Craigmore is decorated and furnished to a high standard, everything seemed relatively new and was certainly very homely. The breakfast was very tasty and cooked to perfection, the bacon was more like thin rashers of gammon! The Craigmore is situated in the quieter part of Blackpool overlooking Gynn Park, and the beach was lovely. The tram and bus stops were at the end of the road and ran frequently. We could certainly find no fault in staying in this area.
