Grosvenor View - Guest House
Ranked #52 of 864 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 10, 2012

I picked this B&B because of the ratings on trip advisor and the fact that it had more than one family room.  We (husband and 4 year old daughter) took room 1 and our friends and their niece took room 6 on the floor above.

We received a friendly welcome from Gareth when we arrived, payment was swiftly sorted and we were soon settled into our room.  The bathroom was modern and spotless, plenty of drawer space and ample wardrobe space with hangers.  Everywhere was clean, dust free and the decor/furniture was in excellent condition.

We opted to have the evening meal on both nights of our stay.  On the first night we all got caught in traffic, this was not an issue for Gareth, he held everything back well past the usual sitting time without us even realising this was the case.  Evening meals consist of old favourites such as Pate, Soup, Lasagne, Chicken Kiev etc. with lots of veg.  Just what you need at the end of a tiring day and perfect for fussy children.

Breakfast here is wonderful, they do a great full english, however I would highly recommend the signature  dish of pancakes, bacon, scrambled egg with honey and mustard dressing, gorgeous.

I really like this place because it feels so warm and friendly, nothing is to much trouble, the owners are lovely people and I think their personalities make the Grosvenor so very welcoming and homely.

We have just come home from a fantastic 10 night stay at the grosvenor view, Gareth the host did everything he could to make our stay perfect. The cooked breakfasts by Phillip were delicious with plenty of toast and butter!!!!! And the choices for evening meal were hard to choose from, I would recommend the cauliflower cheese when available as was scrummy and with lovely homemade desserts you certainly can't say your left hungry!!!!!
From start to finish our stay was perfect and look forward to returning again.
Love from katie Steve and Amy xxxxxx

What a busy 10 days you all had, long days out then relaxing nights with a glass of wine after dinner. We certainly enjoyed having you stay with us, I can now go back to serving normal portions of butter. Ha Ha. Look forward to seeing you all again. Regards, Gareth.

Just return from this cozy, welcoming guest house. Found this lovely place by chance. Good sized family room, clean and welcoming. Lovely shower room. Good location and parking. Gareth the owner took good care of us all. My daughter wanted chocolate croissants on the first day, Gareth explained that no one usually wanted them so there were none available. He kept his word and lovely freshly cooked croissants were enjoyed the next day. We needed to hire a wheelchair during our stay, which required a cash deposit on delivery. It was due to be collected on our day of departure, but not until after we had left. Gareth suggested he give us the £20 and he would be there on collection, so would keep the deposit. We were very grateful for this kind gesture that he need not have done - thanks Gareth.

This is a great little inn if you're coming to or passing through Blackpool. My husband and I stayed one night here and were well taken care of by Gareth. We were in the four-poster room - cozy, with a nice bay window and a view down the street to the water. Windows blocked out any noise - but not a problem because it's down in the quieter area, away from noise of the crowds leaving/going to town - but close enough for a nice stroll into town. Bed was really comfortable and the tea/coffee tray in the room (with biscuits!) was really appreciated. Shower had great water pressure (properly rinsed hair-yay!). We were able to park our car in the back, which was great as parking is tight on the street, depending on your timing. Appreciated the selection of breakfasts printed out in menu form. While I enjoy an english breakfast, my husband was happy to be able to choose from something else for a change (and not feel like he was making a special/unusual request).

The perfect host. Gareth is the jewel in Blackpools crown. I cant fault anything, the food was very good the rooms were very tidy and Gareth was very obliging and friendly , we were late one night for dinner but he still accommodated us for food after meal times. If I go to Blackpool again Id certainly stay at the same accomidation. Probably the best B&B Ive ever stayed at thankyou

My friend and I stayed at Grosvenor View for one night. We found the owner Gareth to be very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Our rooms were clean and the breakfast very nice.

The guest house is on a quiet residential street in the north shore, so a nice stroll along the prom to the town.
