“Hotel of "Dead Creatures"”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Well what can you say, except should have read the reviews first!!
First impressions were okay, had parking so that was a plus, went into their front room (no guest lounge or TV area or bar) this is where i noticed the dead stuffed fox in a box, not on its own oh no it had a dead stuffed bird in its mouth. Okay some people like that, personal space so personal taste but then you enter the basement!!! This is the dining room, sat down for breakfast (no choices you get what your given) this was a plate of cheap baked beans, 1 tomato, 1 rasher of bacon, 1 small sausage, i was lucky enough to have 3 small mushrooms, and a fied egg!! and sharing your dining room is walls full of dead insects, a display of beetles, tarantulas, giant stick type insects, scorpions and the list goes on. Just not the sort of things you want to be looking at you whilst your eating.
The bedrooms: compact and bijou, like the previous review said defo no room to swing a cat or a dead fox - dusty, TV high on wall so you couldnt see it without getting a cricked neck. Just not a pleasant stay. As previous reviews have stated the owner (a small arrogant man) is not really cut out for B&B in Blackpool in fact I dont think he is cut out to run a B&B anywhere.
Avoid this place at all costs.

DO NOT GO... DO NOT GO... if it is the last hotel available in Blackpool dont book it.... He is a horrible little small insignificant man, who turns if you have a drink or look like you are having a good time.... accommodation dirty, sanitary towels left in bin in bathroom, he accused them of being mine.... dirty b@@@@@d.... called us prostitutes as we left cos we were talking to some chaps outside the night before....and didnt get back into the B & B cos we were drinking next door (no licence) until about 3.30 on all three nights. his poor poor wife... and his poor poor child.... he shouldnt be in the B & B industry, he doesnt have the personality for it, in fact he doesnt have a personality at all... HORRIBLE PLACE and even horribler (if that is a word) man, in fact i cant even call him a man because all the men i know are respectable caring, thoughtful, and equal.... this person is just the pits, bit like his digs...

Room Tip: do not book any rooms, they are all awful....

We picked on this B&B when it said that it had parking and vacancies. an odd little place to stay, after a lengthy chat with the owners I began to learn a lot. Its a good place for the night and if you just need a place to stay. However, the rooms are small but beds comfy (I did manage to peer into one of the open rooms that looked nice). After a comfy sleep we went down to have breakfast... this is what let the place down a lot, the cooked breakfast was very poor, I think the bacon was the best thing on the plate and we weren't offered whether or not we wanted it.

Its an ok place if you just come across it but I don't think it would be our next choice in B&B.
