Reviewed October 3, 2011

Have just returned from Blackpool after a three night stay at the Baron Hotel. A pleasure to stay there. Spotlessly clean rooms comfortable beds and excellent shower. Breakfast wonderful, with very accommodating staff. Landlord and landlady very friendly. Only a short walk from the Tower and Winter Gardens. Would highly recommend this Guest House, which has the bonus of a car park.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have sea view, but if you do not intend to stay in the room all day, it doesn'...

We were a family of five and chose the Baron Hotel for its proximity to the town centre and tower amusements etc. I would highly recommend this Hotel for the friendliness of staff and the high standards of cleanliness and superb food on offer. We really appreciated their assistance in booking Taxi's Restaurants etc. very helpful. They also have a wheelchair available for anyone that needs it, how thoughtful. To Marian, Graham and Bob thank you very much as Craig Revel Horwood would say FAB-U-LOUS and as Arnie would say WE WILL BE BACK.

Room Tip: All rooms very comfortable we enjoyed a room with a sea view

If, like us, you prefer peace and quiet, this guesthouse is for you. Very friendly and helpful staff and lovely and clean, which makes a big differece. The room we had was pleasent and the beds very comfortable. Breakfast was spot on, really nice man serving it too. Oh, and compliments to the chef. Abit of a walk into the centre but trams and buses stop right outside. Could't fault anything, thankyou.

We stayed here for two nights in July for my other half's birthday and we weren't disappointed. As soon as we walked through the door we were made to feel very welcome. Marian and Graham are really down to earth.

The room was lovely, especially the bathroom which looked like it had recently been refurbished, and thought the swans made from the towels was a nice touch! In fact, the whole hotel was decorated to a very high standard. The bar area was also nice, with a little terrace to go out for a smoke. Breakfast was very good, the waiter Bob was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble.

It was ideal for what we wanted as it was a short walk to the town centre and nightlife but far enough out so you weren't in the hustle and bustle. It also had good parking facilities which is hard to come by in hotels in Blackpool.

The only bad thing about the whole weekend was the awful weather!

We will definitely be back :)

We had a lovely stay at the Baron, Graham could not do enough for us, we had trouble parking one day and Graham moved his own car so we could park at the front. Breakfast was first class and the service excellent.

Hello BigEric,

thanks for your review.

I must admit I am a little confused.Mind you give me two shovels and ask me to take my pick and I am confused so I have no chance with your review.

Firstly you stayed with us at The Baron in October 2010 and left a review in June 2011 a full 8 months later.You say that for you everything was fine but you are not going to come again.
The main thrust of your review is that your friends were supposedly spoken to in a detrimental manner.I have to inform you that we have recieved no complaint whatsoever from your friends either in person, by telephone,e-mail nor have they resorted to Trip Advisor.As you say you and your friends have stayed at The Baron on numerous occaisions over the last 9 years.I would have thought that the rapport we had you would have been confident that any problem, percieved or otherwise would have been dealt with courteously and promptly had you mentioned it to us.

When your wife and your friend called in to see us whilst they were on a day trip to Blackpool recently no problem was mentioned and the usual joculariy ensued.Hence my confusion.

We wish you well locating another 4 star Promenade B&B with Sea View rooms some with larger than average showers, a shower stool provided for you, a Lift, level access from the rear Car Park and a convienient secure area to park your wheelchair whilst its battery is being charged.

P.S. does this mean you friends will visit us this year?

signed,

Confused of Blackpool.
