“THIS is how it is done!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Other hotels take note: THIS is how it is done!!
The best place we have stayed by a country mile.
First stepping through the door, received a lovely warm, friendly welcome along with delicious coffee, cakes & biscuits, a very relaxing start to a wonderful stay.
Everything from the smallest details like the salt & pepper shakers right up to the décor, beds & bedding are faultless. There has been a lot of time, effort & money spent very well at The Kenley.
Thick pile carpets throughout, quality furnishings, fittings, fixtures and finishes the list could go on & on, it really is perfect in every way. I would be extremely proud if it were my home.
On top of all this is the perfect location, just off the sea front & in the middle between the Tower and Pleasure Beach
Tony & Mike are the perfect hosts, beyond helpful, but not interfering. Once going well out of their way when we had a problem leading up to a night out, thanks again for that.
Only one negative:
As other reviewers have pointed out, as more people find out about The Kenley it will be harder to get a room! Such a shame, but well deserved for Mike & Tony and we wish them well for the future and hope to see them again soon.

We stopped at The Kenley for 2 nights, only getting a room as there was a cancellation at short notice. This Bed and Breakfast certainly lives up to it's reviews, from the the food quality to the exceptional cleanliness. Mike and Tony were friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate in recommending The Kenley to anyone wishing to stay in Blackpool.

Room Tip: We stopped in a lovely room at the back, very comfortable and quiet.

We have just returned after staying 3 nights at this lovely, fantastic hotel. It lives up to all the reviews and recommendations.
The hotel is spotless clean, and decorated to the highest standard. We stayed in room 1, which was a lovely purple with mirrored dressing table, just what I would like at home.
The breakfast was cooked to how you liked it and they had such a variation of what you could eat. Tony is a good cook, unfortunately we didn't get the chance to experience an evening meal, although other people staying at the hotel told us how wonderful the food was.
The hosts, Tony and Mike are wonderful hosts and lovely people.
If staying in Blackpool we would not hesitate to return.
The Kenley is a credit to both the hosts and to Blackpool and they throughly deserve to be trip advisor number 1 hotel in Blackpool xx

Just back from The Kenley again for september weekend
The Kenley, with MIke & Tony exceeded our expectations yet again
Room 9 which we have had for two years, and have booked again for next year is absolutely stunning
Our friends had Room 5, the new room converted this year is second to none.
The Saturday evening meal is just spectacular, as is the breakfast and Tony & Mike have added smoked salmon and smoked haddock and all sorts of wonderful things for breakfast.
We have another two friends who booked in for next year, I need to stop telling people how good the Kenley is , or we will have to book two years in advance.
Congratulations to Mike & Tony for creating a wonderful, homely yet stately, hotel in blackpool which would not be out of place in central London.

Room Tip: Rooms 5 & 9 are two rooms knocked into one, so are very spacious But all rooms are stunning!

We stayed 16/09 for a couple of nights. Lovely welcome with complimentary hot drinks on arrival. Our suitcases taken to our room. Our room was number 9 which was a lovely big room, with a comfy big bed. On the second night we had a three course meal, which was delicious. The breakfasts were superb. Overall a very pleasant experience which we will definitely repeat. Thank you Mike and Tony.
