“Faultless one night stay”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

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.

Room Tip: Family room number 5 is faultless.

This is the 4th time we have stayed here. Mike and Sally are brilliant and go out of there way to help you with anything. The hotel, rooms, food etc are all second to none. I have told all my friends about this hotel and some of them have stayed here and said the same!! We love it here and will be returning again very soon.

this is a late post as trip advisor won't let you put a post on if you've put one on within 3 months this was a last minute trip for myself as the wife and our little 1 had traveled up the day before they didn't know i was coming up but mike and sally did the wife was in room 2 with 2 singles i got room 7 with a double to myself the only reason this was because there were no family rooms available and i wasn't supposed to be going up the heating was on making the rooms lovely and warm after being out in the cold at night the breakfast was as usual up to it's usual standards i could go on and on but as iv'e said in my previous posts try branston lodge out you won't be disappointed.

We have stayed in B & B's in various parts of the country, but this is by far the best. Couldn't fault anything. Mike and Sally are brilliant hosts and do everything they can to make your stay the best. Tea/coffee on arrival was a nice touch. The rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious and well furnished. The breakfast was lovely and there was plenty of choice. We will definately be back and have already recommended you to others. Steve & Jane

HOSTS - friendly, helpful & aimed to please.

LOCATION - 2 min walk to G Casino & 5 mins max walk to the pleasure beach. They have their own parking which is a bonus.

ROOMS - we stayed in room 1, a twin room on the ground floor. It was quite a large room with en suite bathroom & flat screen tv.

I didn't see a speck of dust, the carpet was clean & hoovered & not threadbare I noticed the carpet as I dropped my earring) & the bathroom was clean & tidy with a good supply of toilet roll.

BEDS - clean, crisp bedding. Comfy with 2 pillows on both beds. I feared we may have been disturbed my street noise but it was lovely & quiet.

BREAKFAST - our hosts took our breakfast order on arrival & we weren't disappointed. They even had veggie sausages!
