“Its Delightful, its Delicious - its De-Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

With 134 out of 143 reviews giving this hotel 5 star excellent status and 8 more giving very good there is no real reason for me leaving a review and to be honest I probably would not usually bother, as I would have felt the hotel was well covered. However our three nights with Steve and Leigh were so good I felt I just had to.

The moment we walked through the door, the first comment we had was “sit yourselves down I will go put the kettle on” (my wife’s idea of the perfect welcome), our bags despite me stating it was fine, were took up to the room for us. From that moment on the standards did not slip once, as well as being great hosts, Steve and Leigh were a mine of information on all things Blackpool.

I noted when looking through tripadviser some people commented on the size of some of the rooms, some may say they are a little small, but this is Blackpool and they are no smaller than most of the rooms in Blackpool. I would prefer the comment, compact and bijou because that is just what they are, what they lack in size they more than make up for in cleanliness, comfort, quality of decoration and homeliness.

Lastly onto the breakfast, I regularly stay in 4* & 5* hotels and it has to be said that Leigh’s breakfasts would be up there with the very best of them, freshly cooked, perfectly, to order every time.

So Steve and Leigh thank you for a great weekend and not only will we be back, but I will recommend you to anyone I know that will be staying in Blackpool. Thanks you both for making our stay so much fun. Phil & Sue B

What an amazing review Phillip, thank you very much. It was great to meet you both as well. Leigh and I are just ourselves doing the hotel the same way For many years. For us it's normal and we can't imagine doing it any other way , we are always quite amazed when people respond so well as we see tend to see what is missing rather than what is there. So it' is very encouraging to know that somewhere somehow we are still doing it right , and that our guests can enjoy their time with us. I always say , we stress so you don't have too!
Regarding room sizes I was glad to read your comment , indeed space was lost when the en suites were put into every room , being a Victorian terrace we have to work with the space there is. But it is to hear that you found your 3 ight break in ' Tiger Red' comfortable as this is in fact our smallest room. There's not a lot between them to be honest with the exception of the Premier Boudoir which is a lot bigger and lusher ! That's why we've tried to give each room it's own character.
Look forward to seeing you both again sometime soon , good luck with the jewellery ideas.
PS I'm glad you didn't mention show time in the Mardi Gras . I'm still recovering ha ha.. Much love

What a FANTASTIC place to stay.We had a 2 night stay in the premier Boudoir room.De-lovely is spotless and is beautifully decorated.Steve and Leigh were the ultimate hosts,friendly nothing too much trouble,they greeted us with a pot of Tea and a chat,gave us a discount card for various bars, restaurantsand attractions and even carried our baggage to the room!!!!!!!!!! Breakfast made by Leigh was top notch.Can't wait to see them and stay there again,can't come soon enough,Don't stay anywhere else!!!!!!

Stayed here for 2 nights on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by Steve and Leigh. We spend approx 1 in 6 weekends away and feel others could learn a thing or two from this couple. The friendly atmosphere here is second to none and that's before you get to your room. Our room was very cosy and well worth the cost. Breakfast was really good, enhanced further by the friendly banter of Steve. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. Fifi , their Labradoodle is adorable.

Thank you Sue and everyone , so very much.
Do you know, after everyone's gone and the last bed is re made and the dishes all washed and the sausages pricked, there is nothing more gratifying than reading a good review. It makes it all worthwhile when you see that people such as yourselves , get what we are doing , and take the time to let us and fellow travellers know.
Your vacation has become our vocation and we are both pleased and relieved to read that we still deliver.
I have to say that we are lucky have the most lovely guests from all walks of life, and as I said to you at breakfast," there's No'wt so queer , nor wonderful as folk' and without you we would be an empty vessel . Thank you , our guests for taking the time to respond. We truly do appreciate it. Xxxx Stevie and Leigh xxxx .... And the hairy Doodle lol :)

My husband and I stayed at De-Lovely on a two night visit to Blackpool on the 15th and 16th of February 2013.
We were accompanied by my cousin and her husband who had travelled from Ireland to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary, we had booked to see a show at Viva and had wanted a nice quiet place to stay.
On our arrival we were greeted by our host Steve who extended a warm welcome with tea and bisciuts and offered to bring our luggage from the car.
We were shown to our rooms by Steve and his partner Leigh and we have to say that you could not find fault with anything, spottless rooms very nicely decorated and very comfortable.
We were upgraded to the premier room which was spacious and opulent.
Every room has a different theme and all done to perfection, breakfast was cooked by Leigh, served by Steve and was five star.
We would definitely stay there again and would be happy to reccomend it to anyone wishing to visit Blackpool.
Steve and Leigh know the best places to eat out and are simply the best hosts, thank you guys for making our stay so pleasureable.

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay although the weather was dreadfull. Stevie and Leigh are both very friendly and made our stay most enjoyable. Their recommendations on the best places to eat (AJ's is great food and terrific value) are well worth taking up. Our room (red room) was spotless and very comfortable. I would not hesitate in using this hotel on a return visit to Blackpool and would thourghly recommend it. By the way Leigh the breakfast was great the best full English I have had for a long while
