Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

I could not have beem more delighted in the welcome, accommodation and breakfast that I received at Lawrence House. Peter and Wayne are the perfect hosts who know the area well and give very helpful information. They clearly take real care over all that they do and deserve the highest commendation. I immediately felt welcome and at home, had the most delightful stay in well appointed accommodation and cannot wait to return.

This was my third year at Lawrence House, up in Blackpool for the Rebellion festival. Everything was great as always - friendly reception, plentiful food and drink (especially the excellent breakfast), nothing too much trouble. See you again next year I hope!!

Our 5th time staying here for the annual punk festival. Me and my girlfriend love it here. The rooms are comfy, clean, and well laid out. The breakfasts are VERY filling. Unlike some hotels where you think they're is a bacon shortage. The bar area is cool and very nice. We usually have a meal here atleast once too and the food is fabulous! As we are a varied mix of people staying here with different dietary requirements Wayne and Peter cater to all. I'll always recommend this hotel to all my friends and usually they can't find a room as they are always fully booked due to the fantastic reviews. Also they are exceptionally good value for money. If you visit blackpool at any time of year THIS is the place to stay.

Back again at Lawrence House for my 3rd Rebellion Festival & Peter & Wayne are still fantastic hosts running a fantastic establishment with no dip in quality & attention to detail.

Rooms are still immaculately & thoroughly cleaned, linen clean & fresh, food fresh & tasty.

Still, as ever, catering for alternate dietary needs without bother.

Peter & Wayne are absolute champs at this game & deserve every accolade they have & many more.

Room Tip: If you wish to get out & about & dine out in Blackpool, ask Peter & Wayne for recommenda...

4 (or is it 5??) years after opening, Lawrence House is still oustanding value. Warm and friendly hosts, spotlessly clean and well maintained, great breakfasts and wholesome dinners served at a civilized time of day, no task too great to assist weary travellers. If you can find my earlier review from 2011 or whenever it was, I second every positive comment. This place is real quality in a city renowned for other things. I have not stayed in a better hotel of this type anywhere in the world.

Room Tip: one of the rooms is a 'small double', marketed as a single, but with 'extra leg-room'...

Me & my partner stayed here for a few days for pleasure & business. The hotel is located very close to the promenade, north pier & a few minutes walk from the bars & the town centre but far enough away from any noise. We stayed in a premier room which was excellent, very clean, lovely decorated & comfortable. Breakfast was excellent & our hosts went out of their way to help with any specific requests. Wayne & Peter were very friendly & knowledgeable about venues & places to visit. We spent an evening or two at the bar which we enjoyed as the guys are a real laugh & is a great area for socialising . We highly recommend the hotel which offers great service & value. We really enjoyed our stay.
