“Nice rooms and friendly hosts.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights in October. Warm welcome from Steve, always there to answer questions with wide range of local knowledge. Bedrooms are done out to a high standard with lots of tea and coffee facilities and toiletries. Our room, number 6, was quite small, but we didn't spend a lot of time in there so it wasn't a big deal. One little problem was that we came back on our second day, and the bed hadn't been made up, very odd as the room had been made up lovely the day before!

The location is great, about half way between the tower and pleasure beach. 20-30 min walk depending on how fast you walk and how distracted you get along the way!

Breakfasts were great nice choice of continental stuff and then cooked items to order.

I would definitely stay here again, and can understand why it's number 2 on TA!

Stayed here the last week of the six week holidays with my young son and was extremely impressed with the service,the rooms and most of all the cleanliness. The rooms are beautifully decorated as well as the rest of tbe property. I have already recommended to friends/family and will most definitely stay here should I return to Blackpool.

Just had a 2 night stay at The Arthington with my mum. What a find! Steve and Elaine were so friendly and welcoming. Nothing too much trouble. We had room 5, a lovely twin room. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfast lovely; good choice of fresh fruit, yoghurts etc. Nice bar with TV and very reasonably priced drinks. The location is very good. Would definitely recommend The Arthington and would like to stay again.

Room Tip: Room 5 is a twin and is a lovely room, but there are a few flights of steps to it.

Great experience even if it poured rain the 2 days we were there. Steve and Elane welcomed us with coffee upon our arrival and gave us tips that helped us enjoy our 2 days. They even let us use an umbrella. The rooms were very clean, we stayed in room 8 on the upper level and Steve even brought up our heavy cases. I can't say enough about this place. The breakfast was first class and had many options. Thanks to our hosts.

Having to travel and stay at hotels all over the UK for work, i found a true 'home from home' at the Arthington, A warm welcome from Steve and Elaine greets when you arrive, and Steve's local knowledge is really helpful. The rooms are decorated to Boutique Hotel standard with extra little touches thrown in and the breakfast is second to none..sets you up for a full day.
Top hotel,top people,
Thank you and see you again.

Benchmark for accomodation in Blackpool...Cannot thank Steve and Elaine enough for such a wonderful and relaxing stay in a both modern and spotless room...Fist class food and hospitality from a wonderfully run family hotel..From a warm greeting on arrival to taking the time to phone a taxi on our check out..They really know how to take care of their guests...5 Star..Thank you

Room Tip: Every room is amazing...cannot praise THE ARTHINGTON ENOUGH
