“Best B&B We've stayed in”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Been coming to Blackpool on and off for over 55 years and have to say that the Arabella is the best we have stayed in . From arrival to departure Graham and Diane were superb and nothing was too much trouble.
The place was spotlessly clean and the food both Breakfast and Evening Meal was superb.
If you didnt like what was on the already extensive menu then Graham would cook what you wanted.
When we booked, The Arabella had just achieved a four star rating and no establishment deserves it more,
Coffee and Tea was available all day both in the Dining room and in your Bedroom which was spacious, comfortable and unusually had an ironing board and among other things a free safe.
Why other reviewers would complain about the parking arrangements is difficult to comprehend!
On arrival Graham helped us park our car and on departure our car was waiting in the shade, on what was an extremely hot day. Many thanks,
In conclusion it is wonderful to stay where the customer comes first and without doubt we will be back.
Many thanks Graham and Diane for giving us such a wonderful few days

Room Tip: All the rooms are spotlessly clean and well equipped. However if you have mobility problems request...

We have just returned home from staying in the Arabella was a really great place to stay, the breakfast was fantastic and the evening meal was great. Nothing was to much trouble. The rooms were spotless and were serviced everyday. The hotel is close to all attractions. We will be returning again soon. Many thanks for a great week in Blackpool!!

Quiet, clean, friendly staff, and a good location. What more can you ask for? Not suitable for hen or stag functions. Parking is a bit of a pain, but apart from that, good location, only a few hundred feet from the town centre. Evening meal is available on request, but if not you can get takeaway and eat in the bar, staff will even provide plates and cutlery. Stayed in room 6, at the back of the hotel, was clean and very quiet throughout our 3 night stay.

We stay at this guest house once a year and always find it spotlessly clean, comfortable and welcoming. The breakfast is lovely and fresh and the service is friendly. Diane and Graham are always the perfect hosts and make guests welcome adding extra touches. We like the fact there will be no all male and female groups so avoid the stags and hens. There are stairs but a chair lift is available to the first floor and we ask for lower rooms which is accomodated if possible.
I would recommend it without hesitation.
