“FANTASTIC HOTEL!!”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

At the beginning I was very worried about staying here as the accomodation was soo reasonable priced it was soo hard to believe. But what we got when we got there was unbelievable! I never met so friendly, welcoming hotel owners. They treat you more as friends than customers! It was by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in! We stayed for a weekend break, the owners brilliant even stayed to have a drink with us of a night! Even accomodated for my disabled Mother In Law, helping her up the stairs. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Amazing nights sleep, beds were soo comfortable, even bought a travel cot in the room for our little one. The breakfast was lovely. Very clean hotel, would recommend it to anyone! We will deffonately be returning again very soon.

Thank you Iain, Karen and Paula for such a nice weekend :)

My family and I recently stayed overnight at the Franklyn hotel, and we couldn't fault it. The room was very clean, towels provided, beds were very comfortable and we had a very good nights sleep. The break fast the next morning was brilliant and very filling for the day ahead. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay at the Franklyn hotel our children thoroughly enjoyed it, and we would say that Iain and his family were fantastic, nothing was any trouble to ask for they were very accommodating. The atmosphere was excellent and i haven't laughed so much in one night like that in a long time. It is a highly recommended place to stay and we will definitely be going back every time we stay in Blackpool. Dianne, Andy and Family

We decided last minute that we wanted to go to Blackpool for the weekend and The Franklyn was able to take us for the Friday night! A lovely hotel ran by very nice people!
The service was excellent and they even saved a parking space on a nearby street so that we didnt have to pay!
The bedroom was nice and clean, so was the hotel!
The bed was sooooo comfortable we didnt want to get out of it in the morning but what a great breskfast!
Will definitely be staying again!

went to the franklyn with family n frinds for my nieces 16th birthday . needed some where reasonably priced . Although it was really cheap we coildnt believe how great it was. Might only be small hotel few streets back from front but a little gem , room were,nt big but spotlessly clean very comfy beds the breakfast was amazing & the owners where very friendly & helpful. only stayed 2 nights which cost us £30 each (£15 a night) for bed n breakfast and my 8 yr old nephew went free!! it wasnt long enough karen, ian &paula have got what it takes to make you feel soooooo welcome even stood at door waving us off .

Room Tip: couple of the rooms dont have en suite so ask when u book , family rooms available

Our girlie weekend in Blackpool .... arrived Friday around 4pm, we were warmly greeted by Paula, Ian and Karen who made us feel very welcome indeed. Our rooms where clean, bright, fresh n very comfortable.
Breakfast was just the best and I mean the best, a full English (served on hot plates) with plenty of toast, tea & coffee.
This is a friendly Hotel run by a family who take pride, they made sure our stay was perfect, nothing was too much trouble.
Looking forward to staying here again in the winter when we go to see Blackpool lights.
