“Made our mini holiday”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

My husband, son & I stayed here on a recommendation from a friend - so glad we did.
Totally agreed with the other good reviews on here of the South Lea. Staying here made our 3 day break for us.
A modern, clean & comfortable hotel & room with excellent breakfast and evening meals. Then the extra touches like fresh milk, sweets, tissues and full sized shower gel in the room. My son really liked the pop and chocs with an honesty box for the late night munchies!
The hotel sits just off the quieter sea-front with a tram-stop very close (tip:.buy day-savers for the trams - great for popping up and down from Stargate to Fleetwood and gives your car & driver a rest).
Best of all, Jan & Rick are lovely hosts - a real pleasure to know them. We will definitely return here, hopefully with other family members. With love, Mo, Pete & Ryan x

Room Tip: Room 5 - lovely suite with excellent views.

We stayed at this hotel with our 3 children they was more than accommodating made us feel very welcome and even helped us in regards to getting to Blackpool Zoo. Room was excellent aswell as the food. In an ideal location right near the beach and loads of car parking space at the front. We will defiantly always use this hotel not a fault at all :)

Room Tip: family room was spacious and really comfy

This hotel is right by the beach, there is a tram station just around the corner and there is a large carpark across the street. The hotel itself has a cozy bar with a good selection of drinks, a pool table and the staff are helpful and friendly. My room was clean and comfortable, with a t.v. and a kettle for tea/coffee. It also had an excellent newly fitted en-suite. Heartily recommended.

Room Tip: The room at the front on the first floor looked amazing. (Room 5 I think.)

Took my girlfriend down to Blackpool for a few days because she hasn't been before and managed to get a last minute booking here. The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating. Much prefer B n B's to posh hotels because it does feel a bit more personal and honest. I managed to interact with the rest of the guests in the bar area and they were all lovely people...found it really hard to go on a night out because there is so much happening in the bar with the rest of the guests.
Overall the hotel was clean and immaculate with friendly and memorable people and i would recommend this to anyone hoping to get away for a few days.

An excellent place to visit for the weekend as it away from the noisy end of Blackpool while still having easy access to the city centre via the tram line which is only a short walk away. The owners, Rick and Jan, are extremely nice and helpful and even though our group was quite large, they still managed to accommodate us all. The room we had (7) was excellent and well kept, shower and toilet area was clean and tidy and the beds nice and comfy. There’s even a bar on the bottom floor, complete with pool table and a TV in case there’s any news to catch up on.
Would highly recommend staying here and I plan to visit again next year.

I would like to say a big thank you to the owners rick and jan . This was a quick visit for a weekend away. I initially booked this hotel because of the reviews. The hosts amazing . Friendly . Hospitable and decent people . Room slept the 5 of us and 2 tvs and plenty tea coffee and biscuits . Clean beds . Nice breakfast . In nice quiet side of blackpool. With no hen or stag do noise to keep you up .what more can a family ask for. We enjoyed the mile walk into town and had a 9 year who managed it . If too far with young ones tram over the road , but a real home from home . Dogs allowed as well .normally wouldn't touch a place knowing that but you wouldn't have even known and they weren't wandering all over in allocated areas . Truly delightful place . Will be back . Thanks ... John . Karen kids x

Room Tip: Excellent. Family room sleeps 5 .at push could sleep 6 maybe a consideration to ownersx
