“great place”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

we have just spent a weekend here and it was brilliant. i traveled with my husband and we booked a superior double room, when we booked in we were told we had been upgraded. the room we got was a superior family room and it was very spacious and very clean. the bathroom was a bit small but that wasnt a problem as there was room to do what was needed.karen and richard who own the place were very friendly and helpful. the breakfasts were freshly cooked and very nice we were always asked if we wanted any more toast or coffee. the view we had was great we could see the sea and the gardens across the road which was a bonus. there were trams just across the road at gynn square which was only a couple of minutes walk away. all in all this was a great place and we will definately be going back next time we visit blackpool

Room Tip: go for a superior room

Arrived at the hotel and we were warmly greeted by Karen. The hotel was in a perfect location for what we wanted. The lounge and sun lounge looked comfortable although we did not use them with the weather being good. The breakfast was very tasty and there was more than enough on my plate to keep me going until lunch. The tram and bus stops are at the top of the road and a day ticket is very reasonable. Our room was large, nicely decorated and clean with tea/coffee facilities. If we go back to Blackpool then we will definitely book the Craigmore.

We decided to go to Blackpool for the weekend as a spur of the moment thing and chose the Craigmore hotel. We arrived late and was greet by Richard who was very helpful and friendly. As we had booked online there was no booking in forms and were shown straight to our room which was surprisingly big for a last minute booking. The room had tea/coffee, ensuite bathroom which although on the small side had a very good shower. The bed was very comfortable. The only thing to be critical of was the creaky floorboards especially from the room above at 6.30am!! Breakfast was excellent and cook fresh using good quality ingredients. Both Richard and Karen made us feel very welcome and have a good knowledge of the local area. Overall a very good choice for a holiday and we will definately be going there again.

Room Tip: Buy a travelcard for unlimited day travel on buses and trams from the local spar and save £1

We were warmly welcomed by Karen on our arrival. Our room was spacious and comfy. There is a lovely lounge for the guests + a sun lounge where you can sit and watch the world go by. The lounge was used on the Saturday night by most of the guests as it was raining so Richard did a great job behind the bar. Karen gave us imformation about the places to eat and we would recommend the Italian across the square. The bus and tram stops were at the top of the road. Free parking outside of the hotel and quiet location.
The breakfast was cooked fresh for you whilst you helped your self to cerial and fruit juice etc. We would recommend this hotel to anyone and we intend to return and bring our son and his family.

The Craigmore is a very warm and welcoming B+B, and wouldn't be without Karen and Richard.They were funny and kind from the start of our three days there. Breakfast was lovely, and as I am a vegetarian Karen went out of her way to get me a vegetarian sausage. If you don't like a cooked breakfast there is also a small selection of cereal and toast. The rooms were colourful and smelt clean as well as the ensuite lavatory. I shared the sofa bed with my sister and i would of liked the covers to be a bit bigger, but otherwise i slept soundly. What a great place to have a hotel as well, near a bus station, the tram, the beach and the famous illuminations. To sum up this hotel/B+B in one one word it would be homely.

Recently returned from yet another stay at the Craigmore! Many thanks yet again Karen and Richard. The Craigmore is a warm and welcoming place to say. I sayed on the top floor with a lovely view over the Gynn Square gardens and the sea, and at this time of year a front line view of the illuminations without stepping out of the door! The room was very warm, clean and tidy abd tastefully decorated. There was a TV, kettle and provisions for hot drinks - great for coming in late afternoon or bedtime. The ensuite shower room is spotlessly clean and tidy with some toiletries provided though I usually use my own. The beds are comfy too! It always smells fresh and clean when you walk in the front door. The lounge downstairs is welcoming as is the sunlounge at the front of the property, and the licensed bar available if you want it. I always enjoy breakfast at the Craigmore, with true home cooking, also the evening meal which always includes fresh veg and my favourite steamed puddings. I have stayed at the Craigmore many times, and always look forward to my return visits. It couldn't be better positioned with the tram stops just across the road and the seafront bus service stop very near by. The public car park in Gyn Square is very handy but I normally get a parking space just outside the Craigmore without a problem. I always look forward to my next visit and wouldn't consider anywhere else in Blackpool,
