The Marina
Ranked #591 of 863 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Myself, wife and son stayed here for 3 nights, over weekend. We were made feel welcome immediately, and for me, that is important. The room was fine, well enough decorated, with well stocked tea, coffee etc, and a wee chocolate treat, which we thought was a nice touch. There was a shower room/toilet which was also a good size, with more that enough accessories. On each morning, we had a freshly cooked breakfast, made to order. Each member of the staff we dealt with could not have been more helpful. The location of the Marina, for us, was ideal. Less than one minute to the front, and less than 5 minutes to tram stops in both directions. It is beyond the north pier, but again, we were happy with this, away from the town centre, but not that far that we didn't walk in a couple of times. We most definately give the Marina the thumbs up, and would be happy to stay here again, top marks......Ian Sharon and Daniel

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend. From the moment we booked in we could not fault it. The room was lovely we stayed in the four poster room. Situated in a quiet area of Blackpool. Breakfast was excellent. The best B&B we have ever stayed in and we would recommend to anyone.

Just got back from here today, stayed two nights and found this hotel to be really welcoming in many ways. First of all we were greeted by Maria who is very friendly, where we signed in and were given our keys etc etc. Second of all, I thought our room was very up to scratch. It felt like your own bedroom instead of just a hotel/b&b room. The décor was lovely (we stayed in room 3, 1 single bed and 1 double bed). It was also spotless; nothing wrong with it whatsoever; nothing unpleasant about it whatsoever.

Breakfast was also good, good portions and filled me up for quite a chunk of the day. The hotel is located at the North prom and so is quieter than the middle and South, so I think this hotel is very suitable for couples or those looking to stay away from hen and stag parties. Not a noise could be heard on the street, very quite street in a good location. It's a bit of a walk away from the centre which is good if you want to escape the noise, and also we didn't find a problem with getting to the centre by either bus, tram etc which were just around the corner, or taxi's.

Me, my friend, my friend's dad and girlfriend stayed and were all impressed. Would recommend this hotel and would probably come back, and the only reason why we wouldn't is because we're probably likely to try different places on different parts of the strip. Thankyou Maria and others at the hotel for looking after us :) And also thankyou for ringing us up when we had left to go home when I'd left my phone! Honest and good service. :)

Room Tip: Stayed in room 3, double and single bed. Very clean and very bright.

My boyfriend and I had a 2 night stay (Friday and Saturday) in this charming bed and breakfast. It's located in a quiet area away from all the loud hen and stag parties. The staff were so nice, the room was a good size and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and made to order. It's conveniently located by one of the tram stops so it was a quick hop to get to everything (definitely get an all day saver pass if you plan on using the tram a lot). Definitely plan on booking again when we return to Blackpool.
