We stayed at the Gordene Hotel during the first week of August. We were in Blackpool for Rebellion Festival and wanted somewhere that was located towards that end of the town, close to The North Pier and The Winter Gardens. For that purpose this hotel was fantastically located, right near the heart of the town and a short walk without being too close. The Central Pier is also close as well as the pubs, clubs and bars. Like 99% of guest houses in Blackpool there isn’t any parking but literally a 2 minute walk away is a huge car park. Our car was parked there for 5 days and the cost was £20 (you have to pay this in pound coins) and it was safe all during those 5 days.
The guest house itself is ran by Alan and Donna and you really will not meet a friendlier couple in Blackpool, they are attentive but leave you alone, not strict and extremely welcoming.
The room we booked was a double and it was en suite, the beds were extremely comfortable and if it wasn’t for the laws of this country I would have stole the pillow, the best nights sleep I have had in months. The rooms were clean and spacious enough for us. Sink in a corner, toilet and shower in a separate room. The rooms also had TV, iron and ironing board, hair dryer and tea and coffee facilities as well as fresh towels when needed. Oh and a bowl of sweets. Really good room in a quiet guesthouse.
The breakfast was of a really good quality, choice of cereals, juice, tea or coffee, toast and full English, tasted great and cooked by Donna fresh and served by Alan. Again attentive and always ensuring that if you wanted more then you could have more.
All in all a place we would return to, well ran, clean, hospitable and very very friendly.
