Arrived to a friendly welcome from Penny and Ray on a very cold Friday afternoon. Room was clean and comfortable. Nothing was too much bother and breakfast was good. Only downside is no wireless access however Penny did try by giving us her access code but signal was weak. Overall a lovely little hotel with willing hosts. It's also very central with the promenade only a minutes walk away. Would stay again.

Stayed: January 2014, traveled as a couple

From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. They had reserved us a parking space which was very much appreciated. There was 5 in our party and we had 2 double and a single room. The beds were lovely and clean. We all enjoyed our breakfast nothing was too much trouble for Ray and Penny. We only stayed 1 night but will definitely return.

Ideal base for a weekend by the sea.
A lovely and clean hotel enhanced by Ray and Penny's warm, helpful and friendly hospitality.
Sundays breakfast was a cracker and helped fuel me round the Blackpool Hilton Half Marathon in a pb time.

I never write comments about places I've stayed in and I've only registered in order to do so because this place is that wonderful.

We were only there for one night for my birthday, but were apprehensive of making a booking anywhere before checking reviews on trip advisor to help decide where best to stay. After seeing the reviews on here as well as the decent price, I decided to opt for the Castleton Hotel. I'm so glad I did. Ray and Penny were fantastic hosts and couldn't have been more welcoming if they tried. The room had all the amenities you needed, the full English after the night before was great and they were so helpful with any question or request I had. The next time I visit Blackpool, the Castleton Hotel is where I'll be staying 100%.

Thanks Ray and Penny for making my birthday weekend that much better staying with you.

After looking at the brilliant reviews on this site about The Castleton Hotel in Blackpool-two fun lovin ladies from Milnrow booked in as a last minute getaway. We were not disappointed. Pay and Renny made us feel very much at home- they had us washing up, changing bed linen, Vacuuming etc… Joking !! Fabulous hotel. Fabulous hosts. Fabulous weekend. It was soooo good we just have to do it again. And again. 

We stayed here for one night for a hen night and were greeted with a warm friendly atmosphere. our party took up the full top floor so we were all next to each other.
Ray and Penny were very welcoming and only asked if we would be quiet when we came home, which we were as he didn't hear us come in. He said he couldn't settle till he knew we were all safe in x.
The beds are really comfortable and lovely and clean.
Breakfast was amazing even though i didn't eat much as i was very hung over.
There are a range of shops just at the end on one side on the street and the sea at the other end. You are situated right in the middle of all the activities so they are easy to reach.
I will be staying here from now on when i visit Blackpool just hope they are not fully booked as i would recommend this to anyone who wants to go.
