We (one adult and two children aged 7 and 11) have just returned from a faultless one night stay at Branston lodge which we selected after reading numerous positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Upon arrival we were lucky enough to park directly outside the hotel (free on street parking) which is situated no more than 10 minutes walk away from the pleasure beach entrance, and 30 minutes walk away from the tower and main town areas.
When we entered the hotel we were offered a warm and friendly welcome by the owners Mike and Sally who preceded to escort us to our family room number 5 which is situated on the first floor at the front of the property. Prior to our arrival we had been informed that our room had recently been redecorated and you could certainly tell as it was immaculately presented, spotlessly clean and a great size, containing a double bed, bunk beds and an on-suite bathroom / shower.
All of the beds were extremely comfortable and we all had a great nice sleep which was helped by the hotels location which is just far enough away from the main promenade area to avoid all of the hustle and bustle, but close enough to maintain its accessibility.
For breakfast we selected cereals, fruit juice and the full English breakfast which was serviced in the lovely dining room. All of the food was well cooked and presented, our hosts were attentive with additional serving continually offered, although not accepted as the initial portions were just about spot on.
To sum up Branston Lodge offers very good value for money, is situated in an ideal location and is run by great proprietors. Having stayed in several different Blackpool hotels and guest houses over the past couple of years, in my opinion Branston lodge is head and shoulders above anywhere else that we have stayed, and we would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone.
Hopefully we will be back for the illuminations later this year.
