The Regency Hotel
Ranked #607 of 863 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Arrived on Friday, we were a family with 2 boys age 10 and 6 within a group of say another 5 with kids all staying here. Parking just 2 minutes up the road was £8.00 for 48 hours really reasonable. Another team were also booked into the hotel, think it must have in excess of 25 rooms. The rooms were really small and very basic, but they are clean and for a family that is important. Andy who runs the hotel with his wife puts in some hours and was up and arranged early breakfast for us all so we would be fed before out tournament and kept the bar open until you went to bed. (poor soul)

The place is typical of Blackpool, a bit dated many rooms packed in so they are really small and any longer than a couple of nights I'm sure the lack of floor space would have been impossible. There was also no TV but given it was a very active weekend it was not missed.

Andy the owner however is a bit of a mystery, first appearance is well not going to mess with you! However he was absolutely fantastic with the guests, had time for the kids and was a patient man putting up with boys trudging in and out and playing footie out the front and generally nothing was a bother. He put on some samosas for those in the bar on the Saturday, and the drink is just so reasonably prices in fact it was cheap.

It would not be my place of choice if it were us going away, but have to say for the purpose and the ages we had with us it was ideal.

The breakfast is really good, you could easily skip lunch after all that!

Staying at The Regency was part of our weekend and we really enjoyed the weekend

if you want a cheap place to get your head down after a great night out then look no further. yes the rooms are small but you have all you need with town on your doorstep. breakfast is top notch and Andy the gaffa is a top bloke, would 100% recommend the Regency for hens, stags and birthday parties etc.

Great run hotel right in the centre of Blackpool. 28 of us stayed here for the weekend and the place, location and the owner Andy was all great. Yes, rooms are fairly small, but very clean, warm and well looked after and the breakfasts in the morning were brilliant. Andy is a top man too, assuring you have a great time and was a fantastic host. If you are looking for a night or 2 away for bdays/ hens/ stags in Blackpool, minutes walk from the main bars/clubs then do not hesitate.

Stayed here for a hen doo at the start of February and wasn't expecting much. Although the rooms are small, I was pleasantly surprised to find the hotel was very clean and served good sized, piping hot breakfasts.

The lady that served the breakfasts was very helpful but the man (owner?) was a bit if a strange one who barely said more than two words the whole weekend.

All in all and as Blackpool goes, this b&b provided everything we needed.

Went to this hotel as part of a group of 30 hens on 06/10/12. Hotel was clean and owners lovely but believe me rooms very small and cramped ie a 8x10 room with 2 sets of bunks and a single bed ( i kid you not) double room about 6x6ft and so on. On the up side beds are comfy and breakfast is fab our room was at back so not too much noise but apparently very noisy at front where my sisters were.Oh and be prepared to pay £10 key deposit. Perfectly situated for Blackpool centre for partying and we had a brilliant laugh so if looking for a very small place to crash for a night this hotel is ideal but wouldn't like to stay longer lol

We also stayed here on the 22nd September for a hen do but we didn't see any other hens. We were a group of 10. Far from a luxury night but hell of a laugh. The guy who runs the place is so accomodating, would def recommend for a group booking but don't expect to get much sleep!!
