We stayed for 4 nights with our 2 young children for the second time. We really enjoyed our stay at The Clovelly. Hilary and Kim are really lovely people who run a great hotel. The Clovelly is really modern and very clean and tidy.

The breakfasts are great and if you dont fancy the full english fry up in the morning, there is a selection of alternatives to choose from but we recommend the fry up!!

At night if you just fancy staying in and having a few drinks in the bar, then you are guaranteed good chat with Hilary and Kim. It is so relaxed and time just flys in.

Hilary and Kim were absolutely great with our 2 children, so great that our children wanted to stay with them!!!

We totally recommend The Clovelly to stay at. You are guaranteed to stay in a clean, relaxed modren enviroment with 2 genuinelly lovely people.

Thanks Hilary and Kim for another great visit!!

xx

From the moment i phoned up i thought Hillary was lovely , on arrival she and Kim were very helpful with parking , the hotel is very clean and modern and meals were great - plenty of choice. The room was very clean and fresh (even had hair dryer in drawer !). Location is spot on (halfway between central pier and south pier ) Street is one way which cuts down traffic ( no noisy traffic at night ) Its obvious Hillary and Kim both take great pride in their hotel , with a friendly atmosphere . I would definitely recommend The Clovelly to anyone going to Blackpool you will not be disappointed , also my wife and daughter both loved the fresh pancakes at breakfast haha .

My partner and I booked this based on previous trip advisor reviews and "The Clovelly" more than lived up to our high expectaions! Location is perfect - right in between Pleasure Beach and the Tower.

From the moment we arrived and received an incredibly warm greeting from Hillary at the door, we knew we had picked an absolute gem.

The cosy room was just the right size for a couple and had all you could ask for. The highlights (and there are many) are a lovely flat screen TV with full freeview channels and great tea and coffee making facilities including Galaxy hot chocolate and yummy biccies! Bathroom had a great power shower and lovely hot water. The bed just the right firmness and gave me 1 of the best nights sleep I've had in a B+B.

When you stay be sure to have a drink in Hillary and Kim's "Pink bar". Perfect for starting out the night - resaonble prices and decent draught beer - a rarity in this day and age for B+B's! Our 1 pint turned into 4 - a couple before dinner and a couple more upon out return. It would appear all the guests have a drink here and it was great to have a chat with your fellow tourists staying there.

We stayed up late the first night chatting to our wonderfully hospitable hosts and can honestly say it was like home from home.

But the best is yet to come... The breakfast! All freshly prepared to order they lay on the BEST breakfast I have had in a B+B! Choice of eggs (fried acrambled or poached), bacon, hoggs pudding, hash brown, baked beans, mushrooms, fried slice and toast! Best part is the sausage and bacon are grilled - wonderful stuff! I opted for the veggie breakfast the first morning and loved every bit of it - the veggie sausage was of particularly high quality. On top of all this there's Kellogs cereals, fruit etc....

So what are you waiting for?

Book now - before I left I booked to return again next month. But be quick - I got the last room on my chosen dates. Yes, it really is that good!

Thank you Hillary and Kim for a great weekend - cannot wait for the next!

Just back from a two night stay at the clovelly hotel, we have been to blackpool a number of times and have to say this is the best place we have stayed by a mile! We will definately be back and will be recommending it to friends. The rooms are so clean and modern, the food was lovely and the hosts made us very welcome, cant wait or our next stay.

whenever we go to blackpool we always stay at the clovelly, we would'nt stay anywhere else, we have stayed in most of the rooms and they are all clean and welcoming, the hosts are very friendly and can't do enough for you, you are spoilt for choice at breakfast, would highly recomend every time.

We didnt travel too far to Blackpool but me and eldest daughter wanted to do some Shopping in the nice new shopping center so decided to stay overnight! We were very pleased when we arrived, to see the hotel was just as lovely as it looked in its pictures on the web. The proprietors were very welcoming and accommodating, the room was very clean and modern and the breakfast was fabulous! We dont stay in Blackpool that often but I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay and Im sure if we ever go back for a night, then the first hotel we will contact will be The Clovelly!! Thank you very much!
