“Fantastic all round”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We have stayed at the Cranstone Hotel with Shirley and Sam for a few years now. We would not go anywhere else in Blackpool now.
Nothing is too much trouble and they are both fantastic hosts and company.
The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is great, Shirley has always catered for our daughter who is..... lets say.... a little awkward!!
The location of the hotel is also great as only a few minute walk both to the tower and the pleasure beach.
Our last stay in October was most enjoyable, having a fantastic few 'late' nights in the bar with both of them.
And needless to say we have already booked for next year...... And looking forward to it already.

We stayed last weekend 28th & 29th September.
Lovely Hotel. Sam & Shirley were excellent hosts nothing was to much trouble for them and great company sitting in the bar in the evening.
Our room was comfortable & clean with tea & coffee making facilities.
Excellent breakfast with a choice of cereals and what we would call a proper cooked English Breakfast.We would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This was the second time we've stayed at The Cranstone hotel. Shirley & Sam make you feel like family & nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are comfortable & clean with tea & coffee making facilites. Breakfast is served at the respectable time of 9am - great if you've had a night out on the tiles, evening meals are available but we've not used had them. Sam & Shirley only accept couples & families so you are sure to get a good nights sleep without the worry of being disturbed by groups of lads or girls returning at silly times.
Limited on street parking available on a first come first served basis, however on both stays we have taken advantage of the nearby secure parking that Shirley can pre book for you - this is a short 5 min walk away & costs about the same as the 24hr pay & display car parks but gives you more piece of mind.
We will definitely return to The Cranstone.

As soon as we were welcomed by Sam and Shirley it just felt like we were being welcomed by family, it was very relaxed and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was very clean and comfortable with a lovely breakfast, which by the way was at 9am so that was great to have a lie in after a karaoke night out at the local pub ;) Parking was restricted but Shirley booked us into a nearby secure car park which was a short walk away for a small fee, which was well worth peace of mind. The Illuminations were fantastic to look at and well worth a visit. We will definitely be making a return visit.
