We came to Blackpool to visit the Blackpool Pleasure Beach. The Baron is just a short ride by bus or tram from there. The room was very clean. By English Standards it was very spacious. The Bathroom was very clean and very modern, the nicest and softest towels I've ever had in a hotel (US or UK). The breakfast was very nice, cooked to order, or you had a choice of a lighter continental breakfast. Kippers are available with a little notice. Both Graham and Marion are the sweetest, nicest hoteliers I've met! When we arrived, we were immediately escorted into the Lounge, asked to sit down and fill out the registration card. No standing at a desk after a long journey. While Marion explained the keys, and general things about the hotel, Graham took our luggage up to the room, and was there to show us how the TV worked, and make sure that we had no questions. We had a sea-view room on the 2nd floor that was a delight. You could make a cup of tea, sit in the chair and just watch the Irish Sea for hours. The other people in the hotel were a delight as well. You meet them in the morning for breakfast and often see them later in the evening in the Lounge. It was by far the best hotel experience I have had in the UK!

It's all been said in previous reviews. The staff were welcoming, food was excellent and my room was lovely. I think this is the cleanest hotel that I've ever stayed in; it was spotless.

The owners of The Baron provide a very good service to their guests, you are made welcome from the moment you arrive, everything is explained from parking, keys, breakfast etc., and then if there is anything else - just ask! and,importantly, this is meant sincerely.
Crisp white sheets, spotless bathroom with complimentary toiletries. Flat screen TV with CD and DVD combined came in very handy.
The dining room is a pleasure to have breakfast in, comtemporary furniture and well laid out, the gentleman who served us was most courteous, with a smile, and deserves a special mention... so too the breakfast, which was excellent, cooked to perfection and exactly as ordered.
Good luck to the owners for a busy season, I'm sure many will be returning guests.

Hello Ordena,
thank you for a great review.Sorry it has taken me so long to reply,we have had the builders in upgrading various areas.Trying to keep some sort of order during the five weeks they were here was difficult. Marian as you know was a trained Nurse and finished her career as a Matron. How many builders do you know that make their clients cups of tea on request? If ever you need to keep tradesmen in order get a Matron in.Thanks once again for your kind comments.
