“This was not a four star experience.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2010

Having booked two en-suite rooms for my son, his family and my wife and myself respectively, we were dismayed to find only one en-suite room available, which my son and his family took. My wife and I were taken up to a shabby, dismal and poky room at the top of the house which was not much larger than a box room into which the smallest of double beds had somehow been shoehorned into a corner. A wobbly and loose semi-circular shelf had been erected above the bed in what seemed to be a perfect position for a sleepy person to bang their head on when rising. An ancient TV balanced rather precariously on top of a cheap wardrobe amongst a jumble of wires. My disappointment was reinforced by the un-fresh towels that had been placed on the stool which was the only provision for somewhere to sit down as there was no room for any sort of chair.
I had paid £44.00 for each room when booking my stay for the night at this hotel. The Landlord did immediately refunded me £22.00 after I queried the booking telling me that all the other (en-suite) rooms were taken and that this was the only room that was now available.
On reflection I should have asked for a full refund, and, despite the inconvenience, checked in to another hotel.

This small B&B is made special by Darren. Gift of the gab and very personable, he will soon make you feel very welcomed.

Given that it is a small B&B, the smallish size of the room was to be expected. Everything you need is in there, small toiletries, iron and ironing board. We had an ensuite which was clean and couldn't really fault it. The shower was good once it got going, powerful and warm.

Comfy enough bed, only really disrupted due to a drunken guest.

Breakfast was good and filling, we were a little early at the table but this didn't seem to bother Darren and seemed more than happy enough to rustle up some breakfast for us.

Only real negative:

Parking: expect to pay about £15 for 48hrs of parking in a local car park which is only a short walk away.

A nice, welcoming, family run hotel, I'd go back again to support this small business, I recommend this and I'm sure Darren will welcome you as well as he done with me and my party.

Stayed for two nights. Location is close to all the shops, seafront and other amenities.
Friendly staff and very good value for money. Rooms are functional and clean. Would recommend.

On the positive side, the man who leases the hotel was friendly, gave us good advice about what to see and do in the area and made a lovely breakfast. However when we first arrived the smell of the hotel was overpowering - a mixture of damp, stale, musty smell. The decor appeared to be in great need of updating and appeared dirty although the bedsheets themselves were clean. There was a plug socket hanging from the bedroom wall, with an adapter plug attached - looked like a health and safety hazard to me. The iron did not work and the plug, was last checked by an electrician in April 2008 - due to be re-checked April 2009. The shower was either very hot or ice cold, no happy medium.

Thank you for your comments we are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. As we are only a small hotel we ask all guests to bring any problems they have to us on arrival so they can be sorted out straight away and you gave no mention of your problems to me even though we sat and chatted about where to go in Blackpool. Once again we do apologise if everything was not right.
