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.
