“Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Booked this B&B few days in advance only wish we had checked trip advisor first......
Myself, sister and niece arrived at this B&B around lunchtime on Saturday , spoke to Wayne in advance to let him know time, had to knock the door and wait awhile before Wayne opened it , first impressions was hey he looks rough, even tipsy, he seemed very disoriented about our booking. Got to the room unpacked went out , on returning to get changed for our evening we walked through the bar area where they was Wayne and Gary plus few quests drinking and being very loud. We decided to have a quick drink before going out thought maybe get to know the owners , but it came quickly apparent this was not a good idea, it was awful never before stayed anywhere and felt uncomfortable owners were drunk. On returning about midnight it was obvious we were not going to get much rest, owners and blokes were shouting and swearing, this went on until early hours it was terrible.
At breakfast two women who worked there where laughing and joking with blokes about last night, all were loud and swearing, we got ignored, only person who spoke and was polite was a young girl who kept breakfast flowing.
Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy .

Arrived on a Saturday afternoon, everything seemed fine, nice clean rooms. However moving on into the evening it became clear that this was not a family friendly hotel. Both owners seemed drunk and un interested in the guests that weren\'t getting drunk. Arriving back after our night out trying to get to sleep was impossible. Men coming in at 5am banging on doors and walls. In the morning at breakfast staff were joking about it. Would like to know why it says about noise in the booklet in the room if staff think its funny to laugh about it around children. Would not come back again, and it should be made more clear that this place only seems to welcome lager louts.

Three of us stayed at this B&B for our wedding anniversary including a 16 year old daughter. The owner Wayne appeared drunk when we arrived but friendly enough, even offering us a upgrade to a 4 bed room!!!. Everything seemed fine until breakfast the next day, with we were greeted by a very drunk (HAMMERED) as someone else referred to him, Wayne. He ran around doing "Bambi" impressions!!!, imposed himself on us by seating himself on our table next to our 16 year old and freaking her out with his behaviour, when Wayne was challenged, he only got worse and continued to get louder and even used inappropriate sexual language, unwanted tactile touching and basically made the breakfast experience an horror to be endured. Wayne's behaviour started getting more verbally insulting/personal and we had no choice but to leave the room cutting the breakfast short, not even finishing, luckily we were leaving that morning and couldn't get out of that place quick enough!!!!! leaving straight after this experience. I must give the other member of staff Tippy, I think I have her name right, a big star for being so professional and trying to remove Wayne, but to no avail!!! It was obvious he did not care about inflicting his drunken, unwanted, unwarranted and inappropriate behaviour on his guests and even youngsters. If you are a family wanted a relaxed and respectful break, please be warned and avidly AVOID this B&B and especially the owner Wayne, an obviously inappropriate and sad excuse for a human being!!!!!! certainly no gentleman.

I stayed here last weekend on a Hen Do, and i can honestly say Wayne could not have been more attentive to his guests! The room was excellent value for money, a lovely double bed to myself! Tv and tea and coffee making facilities, plus a lovely big ensuite!
The bedding was clean and fresh and the breakfast was lovely! I really cannot complain at all about anything.
Yes there was noise but i really don't understand what people expect on a Saturday night in a central location like that!
Wayne likes to have a laugh with his guest and why the heck shouldnt he! Lovely host and i would definately stay in this hotel again whenever i am back in Blackpool!

Room Tip: Ask for Room 2!!!! :-)

If your there for a good time and a laugh then its ideal. Our room was clean tidy and a good size. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Not sure I'd be checking in for a nice quite family break and yes the owner likes a drink along with majority of the guests but that's blackpool on a Saturday night! !

If you want to get smashed and stay up all night with the owner getting even more smashed, then this is the place for you.
If, however, you have designs on actually using the room to sleep in then avoid this place like the plague!
The owner Wayne is clearly an alcoholic who stayed up partying with some guests all night and decided to put on some acid house music at 5.30am waking up the whole hotel. At breakfast he was an embarrassment, barely about to string a sentence together.
The hotel itself was clean and adequate as a bed for the night and could be ok but for Wayne and his complete lack of control and obvious personal problems.

We stayed at the Fairhaven for a girls weekend on the 6th April and couldnt fault it. Rooms where lovely and clean and the staff couldnt do enough for us. They went out of their way to make sure we were al kept happy. Breakfast was great plenty of choice for everone even those who were a little delicate. Would definately stay here again is in a great location.
