5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2011

Had our bi-annual stay again at the end of September and, as usual, both Phil & Janet were their usual helpful friendly selves.
The standards of food & cleanlyness are still very high & im surprised it only gets 3 Stars, much nearer 5 stars than 3.
I couldn't recommend this establishment more highly. A MUST stay location for any couple or family.

Room Tip: All rooms are upto a very high standard

Stayed 5 nights, and haven't a bad word to say about the whole stay!

Breakfast was plentiful, with lots of options to cater to your own desires, an evening meal can also be had (which I was told by other residents were good as well). Both Janet, and Phil are very nice and friendly, and are more than helpful about trip advice, finding things out, or even just to make your stay the very best it can be.

My single room was large (4foot double bed!), modern, fresh, and well kept. Clean, comfortable, and well stocked, which is all you really want when you're away from home.

I can't really say anything more positive about The Cameo, except it's wholy recommended, from me, and from others here, as well as people who were staying at the same time as me.

It's not a promenade hotel/B&B but honestly, it's a very small loss if you were specifically wanting that. It's well placed for buses, especially Nat Express, taxis, the actual promenade is a very small walk away, and close to food and supermarkets. Ideal for everything!

Thanks for a great stay, and I'd like to come back sometime to repeat it!

Room Tip: Pick number two, cus that's where the cool people stay! (no view, but it's a decent bed and...

This is a great B&B. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. Phil and Janet are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great. I couldn't recommend it enough.

Room Tip: Front rooms are nice. Bay window, and it doesn't get noisy.

I have to agree with all comments on this webpage this B & B is a very very nice place to stay. The rooms are very clean and there is plenty of room to store your belongings and also quiet enough in the evening to sleep without being too far from the nearest bars. One of the reasons I chose this place was because of their no stag or hen party rules.

The owners are very friendly and gave us great advice about booking 24 hours in advance online to go the the pleasure beach and let us use their laptop and printer to get our voucher even when it took a while as the printer wouldn't work. The breakfast was very nice and they were very happy to provide you with exactly what you wanted,

The only very small cristism i would have it there is no parking facillities with the B & B which is common in Blackpool but this wasn't made clear on the website when we booked. We parked in the secure car park up the road as we stayed the weekend the lights were turned on the central car park was blocked off which is the one I beleive they normallly recommend to the guests. This cost a bit more but the hotel was such value for money it really didn't matter at all!!

Will definalty stay at this B&B again on next trip to Blackpool.

The Cameo is a bed and breakfast that is not easy to find in Blackpool.
The bathrooms are new and absolutely spotless!! The bedroom we stayed in was spacious very bright and very clean with hairdryer, little essentials in the bathroom, television etc.
The breakfast was extremley well cooked and all of the options and extras that you need. I am not a vegetarian but this and vegan options are available.
Our hosts phil and Janet were perfect. Very friendly but at the same time allowing you enough personal space.
The location is ideal and quiet for a good nights sleep.
We was recommended this bed and breakfast and we would highly recommend it if you would like a relaxing break in blackpool.
