“Happy Days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

2nd time to this hotel, and enjoyed myself even more this time.
1st thing, there are very few parking spaces around the hotel, but there is a massive car park 1 minute round the corner which costs only £20 for Monday-Friday.
Check in - very quick and friendly, shown to our triple room on the 2nd floor, which had a great view of the tower. room very tidy and spacious enough for the 3 of us.
tea, coffee ect all there for us.
Had a quick shower before hitting the town, which was lovely, powerful and warm. Plenty of towels and hairdryer also provided.

Went down to the bar(which has had a wee refurbishment) for a quick beer, and had a chat with Steph the new owner. Really seemed to be enjoying being a Blackpool landlady for the first time. Steph gave me some tips about where to go on a Monday night (50 per cent off food in Revolution) which was appreciated.

After a nice meal, we went back to the hotel, and found the bar area to be busy enough to get to know a few nice families also enjoying their wee break.
My wee girl made a few new friends, so actually enjoyed coming back to the hotel every night for a game of pool instead of wanting to stay in Coral Island.
Alex(the other owner) didn't rush us to our bed at 11pm when the bar is supposed to shut, but allowed us all to enjoy our last drinks of the evening with our new friends.

Bed was very comfy, with big pillows that I like. Room was warm, and no noise although I was at the front of the building. Great sleep every night.

Breakfast is between9-9.30am, and is a lovely buffet breakfast with plenty choice for everyone, and tea, coffee and toast all served by the friendly staff, with refills ect always offered.

Will definetly be back the next time we are in Blackpool.

Good location, Good Price, Good Hosts, Good Sleep, Good Breakfast, Good Company

Just had a great 2 night stay at the HRH with my 8 yr old. New owners Steph and Alex made us feel very welcome. Loved the modern decor, friendly staff, shower you can actually shower in, breakfast buffet was great, rooms are very warm just what you need after getting windlash on the beach. Loved it. Very happy to recommend to one and all.

First impressions are always paramount with us, this hotel is smart at the front, very clean inside, the room we where given was spotlessly clean and modern, the staff made us feel right at home from the start, tea and coffee making is provided in each room along with a tele and hair drier.
The breakfast area is also very clean and they offer a help yourself buffet for breakfast so you get exactly what you require, very we'll cooked and tasty.
We are on our last day of four days and the stay has been second to none, we will defiantly be back here.
Thank you happy return for a very pleasant stay.

Me and my family spent a 2 night stay in this hotel on the 11th n 12th oct and it is far the best weve stayed in.
Very Modern and the staff are brilliant and most helpful.
Very good variety at breakfast to choose from also.
We have already pre booked for next month we enjoyed it so much.
Shall look forward to next visit.
Thank you to all staff for being so helpful with suggested places to go and making us feel very welcome.
Will definitely be a happy return

We have just spent a two night stay on 25th sep, and have got to say this is the best b&b we have stayed at in blackpool. The new hosts have only recently taken over and are doing fantastic, very friendly, fantastic cooked breakfast that sets you up for the day. Room was a family one right at the top of the hotel and was clean and very spacious, bathroom had a bath and shower and the most spacious we have encountered. Fantastic position for all attractions also parking very close if no room outside hotel. Can't fault this hotel, and would like to wish the owners all the best for future success, they definately deserve it. Can't wait to return for another break. Elaine Hitchener and family.

My wife and I went with our son and his partner along with four of our grandchildren, we had two family rooms which were clean and the beds were very comfortable. We stopped for two nights at the weekend and the breakfasts on both days were really good. The owner and her partner were very friendly and could not do enough for you the bar lounge was very clean and tidy as was the hotel. Would recommend this hotel for families and couples of all ages. Will return.
