“Wonderful Weekend!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Just spent 3 nights at By The Seaside - what a find! Kym and Hilary could not have been more helpful and the food was delicious, especially the pancakes. We were made to feel very welcome and will certainly be going back again. All the attractions are within easy reach including the football ground if you are visiting for the footie but would highly recommend By the Seaside whatever your reason is to be in Blackpool.

Had a great stay at this B&B ! Very welcoming, warm, tidy and clean ! The breakfast is fantastic ! In a quiet street just off the promenade, 2 minutes to a tram stop, easy wander to the pleasure beach one way and central pier the other ! Not much parking but easy to stop on the pavement to load and unload, we used the secure car park 10 minutes away as car not needed once your there. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again on next visit to Blackpool !

Room Tip: Rooms are small but have everything you need and beds are very comfortable !

This was pure luck that I chose this guest house and by shear magic the owners were absolutely 100% genuine, honest, friendly and professional. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was the best I have ever had, and believe me I have been in a lot of B&Bs and guesthouses. I thought the price of £52 for a double room was very reasonable but to my surprise this also included this amazing breakfast. The owner believes that the breakfast is the main meal of the day and believe me she shows it on the plate. Our room was ensuite and to the highest standard. The cleanliness was of a very high standard not only in the room but all through the guest house. The special touches like a bathrobe with slippers and bottled water in the room were a real treat. Hilary and Kim run a very high standard guest house but also take time out to make sure their guests feel welcome and are catered for in every way. This is the first time I have ever made a comment on any B&B, guest house or hotel. The simple reason is it was a delight to have been there and deserved an excellent review. I would not hesitate to recommend this guest house to anybody. Many thanks for your hospitality. John and Ann from Mossley.
