Reviewed October 6, 2012

Found this guest house by chance for a one night stay and were very pleased with everything. Lovely, comfortable and nicely furnished room with beautiful ensuite. Great breakfast. Many thanks to accommodating hosts.

This year was our second time staying at Marston House for Rebellion Festival and it was even better than last year. We doubt you could find a friendlier welcome in Blackpool. Lovely clean and comfortable en-suite rooms, flexible and accommodating hosts and - new this year - black pudding option at breakfast! Vegetarians still welcome though! The ultimate Blackpool B&B experience in every sense of the word. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 3 is a family room with a double bed and bunk bed.

Arrived on Friday 20th July 2012 with a warm welcoming from a very friendly couple. Went up to blackpool on a lambretta scooter weekend and couldn't do enough help ensure the safety of my scooter. Nothng was too trouble. Fantastic room, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Would recommend to anyone will definately return again.

my group initially booked rooms at the Malibu hotel and when we saw the rooms there we decided we could not stay there because it was not safe, I instantly distrusted Blackpool and decided to instantly leave the god forsaken city and head towards Afghanistan where i believe the accommodation would be better and safer.
we decided to Google B&B in Blackpool (thank god for Google) and at the top of the list was the Marston House, I enquired about rooms and they said that there was some vacant rooms, asked if i could view before renting and she said yes (paranoid about Blackpool standards) on arriving at the door was greeted by Margie who instantly appeared warm and very inviting, instantly I said yes in my mind and when we saw the rooms we instantly booked out all the available rooms and moved from Malibu to a five star lux accommodation, both Margie and Brian was so great that I will definitely come back again and if all the Hoteliers in Blackpool were like those two , Blackpool will be the place to be for a Holiday. I give it ten starts.

Room Tip: number seven is well cute but all are a 1

Back again for the 2nd time in a row - 3rd time back altogether so far and found nothing had changed from the last time we have visited - same lovely couple - like seeing old friends - we were put in a different room which was bigger than the two previous rooms and at least we didnt have to keep ducking in order not to bank heads withe the low beams

Thanks for your review. No need to duck under the beam anymore. Margie had me rip the room apart and rebuild it. She's a stickler where our guest's comfort' s concerned. Always glad to be of service. Brian
