This is now the second time my fiancé and I have now been to The Crest, same time of year for the last 2 years end of July/start of August Mon-Fri. We have stayed in the Premier en-suite double room which is very clean and comfortable, it offers everything we possibly need, not a huge room but we were more than happy with it. Gary the owner is very nice and is more than happy to answer any questions, when we have made use of the bar the prices were very reasonable and again had a good wee chat with Gary. The full breakfast is fab value for money and very tasty, great way to start a busy day in Blackpool. The Crest is in a great location as it is just one street back from the promenade at central pier, everything is within walking distance or you can jump on one of the trams which are reasonably priced. There are so many comments about The Crest being across the road from the job centre and a sex shop but what is the problem??? You don't get any bother from any of these places. The street is very busy to try and get parked but on both of our visits we have been very lucky to get parked after sitting waiting for 10-15mins then the car stays there until we are ready to go home. Over all we would recommend The Crest as we loved it. Hopefully we will be returning next year.
