“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

My mum and I stayed at The Arthington for 2 nights (11 and 12 October 2013). We enjoyed it here last year, so chose to return. As the other rooms were booked, we had the family room (double and bunks). This was still a lovely room and the lower bunk was very comfortable. My mum said the double was also really comfortable. As before, our room was spotlessly clean. Steve and Elaine really looked after us. The little extras, like water in the room, sweets in the hallway, and a great choice for breakfast (including a good selection of fresh fruit) make this place a perfect place to stay. The cinema is not far, with a Frankie & Bennie's next to the cinema. The Arthington is very close to tram stops, and only minutes from the sea front. We wouldn't choose to stay anywhere else in Blackpool.

The Arthington truly deserves its '4-star Gold Award' rating. Steve and Elaine make you so welcome and the rooms and food are top quality.
The hotel is only 150 metres from the prom which is perfect for the illuminations and seafront.
This was our second stay and I would recommend the Arthington to anyone.

Room Tip: Room 8 is at the top of the stairs but the decor is fantastic.

Elaine and Steve are a very friendly couple. They made us very welcome and our 2 night stay very enjoyable. We will definitely go back. The food was excellent. The room was great and cleanliness was to a very high standard. Elaine and Steve couldn't do enough for you. Thanks for a great holiday

Room Tip: Excellent room. Newly 're-furnished and made the holiday

We recently stayed for a night rather than the large Savoy Hotel and really enjoyed our stay. Steve and Elaine were really friendly, helpful and even organised our taxi for us. Our room was well priced at £55 per night and had a really modern décor plus it was spotlessly clean. Downstairs is a well stocked bar with a modern dining area and a good breakfast menu. If you want to park on the road arrive around 1100am after other guests have checked out otherwise you may have to park on a pay and display some distance away. Next time we visit Blackpool this will be the only B&B we will pick.

Got back home recently from another great weekend stay at The Arthington. Have now stayed here on three occasions and have already booked in again for next year, Steve and Elaine are the perfect hosts and the guest house itself is immaculate in every way (see my other reviews for more details).
I Can't recommend The Arthington highly enough and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Blackpool.

We stayed here for 3 days just last week and we wish we could be back there! We booked the superior king suite and what a good choice! So contemporary and welcoming. The room was spotless and the attention to detail was unbelievable! The room even included a docking station! I personally have trouble settling when away but I slept better then I do at home! The breakfasts were perfect every morning and were very quick. We were never left waiting. Always hot and delicious and great range of choice too! Steve and Elaine were great hosts and very welcoming! We will definitely be staying here again and recommend to everybody!

Me and my boyfriend stayed here again in July for 3 nights this is our 2nd visit back we love it here, we decided to book a superior king room and it was gorgeous the room was massive and furnished lovely glad we booked this room and will book it again next year! The breakfast was lovely aswell with some new things added to the menu. The owners are very helpful and nice and if you need any help on where to go or visit in Blackpool they will always recommend somewhere. Love this guesthouse and be visiting again next year! :)
