Myself, my two friends and my two children stayed here for weekend just gone and i honestly can't say enough good things about it. We were made to feel at home and i can assure you we did just that. We didn't feel like we had to be quiet and to be fair obviously we didn't take the micky either screaming or shouting, rooms are big enough with us having the family room which is a double bed, and a bunk bed with a double and a single on top. There is a spare bathroom on the landing which came in useful for us when getting ready to go out. The bar is well equiped and bargain prices from what is on offer in the pubs just round the corner. This hotel is in a prime location to all the pubs, just behind the tower. Breakfast was lovely with a choice of cereal, tea/coffee, fresh orange juice and a full english so all in all an excellent price for an over excellent weekend to remember. We are defo going back this year. I do just want to add that when we were checking out and upon us returning to our car to take to the hotel to collect our things, my car battery was dead as i had left my lights on (and i was sober at that point), but not to fear the management at the hotel came to our rescue - what a life saver :). If you want to ask any questions please email me and i will be happy to help.

The Shanklin is possibly the best place in Blackpool to stay. Its a hotel and a non-stop party rolled into one. The owners will treat you like family and no matter what you're after they can provide it. If you want to have a quiet night in then you can relax in one of their stunning bedrooms and if you want to party they will keep the bar open until the last person drops, not to mention Willy's amazing cocktails that you've got to try!!!!

My friends and me left our deposits there because we know we will be back =D

Wullie, Tracy & Alfie's hospitality was second to none from start to finish. Clean & welcoming with a relaxed bar and owners who are keen to make your stay as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. £20 each per night was most definitely money well spent!

Enter as a guest and leave as a friend!

We had a great time at the Shanklin, we would NEVER stay anywhere else in Blackpool.. Not only is it 5 minutes walk from the nightlife but Tracy and Wally are the most fantastic owners they make you feel so welcome - especially on a special occasion we had birthday banners up on our arrival - they really go the extra mile!! Going back next month to visit our new friends and to do more ''plankin at the Shanklin'' Love it!!!! 100% recommend it to all - old and young groups, singles and couples - this is the place to stay!!

Me and a few friends went to blackpool for a girly night and stayed at the Shanklin and i've got to say it has gotta be the best BnB we have stayed in! Tracey and Wullie - the owners - could not have made us feel more welcome. They had karaoke on for us and were very lively and fun. The 'Shanklin Surprise' is a must too! The rooms are big and spacious with very comfy beds, freeview tele, dvd player and tea/coffee facilities. The breakfast was gorgeous too and the coffee amazing :D I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone and we will definately be going back :) Staying here definately made our night in Blackpool even better
