The Arthington
Ranked #4 of 863 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We have been hosted this weekend by Steve & Elaine at The Arthington whilst we enjoyed a Gala at the Winter Gardens and shopping at Lytham and also at St Anne's.

We are return visitors as the facilities are superb.

Typical of the vicinity and the build era of the town The Arthington does not have on site parking, however with a secure reasonably price car park on the adjacent Crystal Road this is not a negative and dependant on the length of stay kerb side parking is available for suitcase transfer or overnight . Steve was, as always, on hand to assist with the decision of which option is the most suitable for the personal stay.

A beverage of our choice was served in the sunny lounge whilst S&E checked us in and answered any questions before Steve offerd a porter service for ALL our luggage.

Our senior citizen stayed in the Deluxe single, which has a 4` bed and a top range en suite. There is plenty of circulation space for 1 in the room and located on the first floor so not too onerous for the elderly traveller.

My sister and I stayed in the twin, with both had drawer and cabinet space for all our needs, plenty of coat hangers, had there not been enough for all our outfits S&E would have provided more as soon as asked. We could see the pinnacle of the tower, from the bedroom window and the bathroom was flooded with natural light most of the day and as it is in every room, was well appointed with good quality linens, towels, and high spec carpets.

The complimentary for your stay sweets, biscuits, chocolates, beverages and water are branded and of quality, it would be greedy and detrimental to your waist to eat them all in one day.

The award winning breakfast accounted for all tastes, girths and stamina. Both mornings I had a Arthington Snowfall a large sundae glass of fresh fruit, honey, granola and yoghurt. OAP had the traditional 'full English'. And we all had piles of hot toast and real butter washed down with lashings of hot tea, fresh coffee and fruit juices.

We could have had our evening meal there too in the evening, but chose to eat out in Lytham via a taxi arranged by S&E, which arrived on both occasion within 1 minute of the call being placed.

Elaine's interior decorating flair, high housekeeping standards, less guests/bigger rooms is more guest comfort strategy combined with Steve's multi tasking and great location is worth our repeat business. The extras, thoughtful touches and fixture and fitting that are typical of hotel accommodation are an honour and a bonus in this B&B.

Room Tip: All rooms are as quiet as possible considering the location. The owners can not montor the seagulls...

After being sceptical about staying in a B&B we decided to stay here due to the excellent reviews on this site! We arrived very early at around 10am and despite being very busy on a Monday morning Elaine was more than happy to sit and offer some advice on where to go in Blackpool. She noted we were there for a birthday stay and when we returned we received an upgrade to a bigger room!

Throughout the stay we could not fault anything and the service from both Elaine and Steve was outstanding! The room was very clean and the hotel was in a perfect location.

I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking to visit Blackpool! We will definitely be back and would pay the little extra to stay in a deluxe room!

Thanks for a lovely stay!

As Arnie would say - I'll be back.
Friendly, great décor, delicious breakfast, exemplary service - couldn't ask more. In a great, clean street. Perfectly located for tram stops. Elaine helped me get a parking spot for the night til a spot on the street opened up the next day. The rooms are lovely and the little touches make even the tea/coffee tray better than usual. Where else would you get Love Hearts and Mini cookies.

You won't find better hosts than Steve and Elaine. Lovely, lovely hardworking couple doing all they can to make us guests have the best possible stay. Helpful on all counts. Immaculately clean and very comfortable, best breakfast ever. Not one negative thing to say. The location is excellent, quiet nice street, practically seafront, but without noise. Book a trip - as my heading says ........

Room Tip: all rooms are online, nothing to hide - choose one!!

Absolutely fantastic hotel! Could not pick one fault. The nicest most genuine couple you could ever meet and all the little things made all the difference. The bedrooms can only be described as stunning, the bed was the comfiest double bed I have ever slept in I think all of our group and one point considered asking where the mattresses were purchased from. The breakfast was on top form along with the other meals. Steve made my favourite cocktail so ten out of ten from me on that point as well. We enjoyed our stay that much that before we left on the Sunday we booked again for next year. Keep up the good work. See you next year!x from Sammy and Brian x
