This was our second stay at the Wilmar and we were not disappointed. I have to say it was even better than the first. From the warm welcome when we arrived to the exceptional hospitality throughout our stay, this is what makes the Wilmar second to none. Derek and Rhiannon are the perfect hosts, you really are made to feel at home and nothing is to much trouble. We stayed in the family room which was thoroughly clean and pleasant. As for the breakfast every morning you can have as much or as little as you like, personally I had the works the choice is unbelievable and all freshly cooked, you won't find a better one anywhere else. The only downside was having to leave because when in Blackpool this is THE place to stay. Thank you Derek and Rhiannon for a superb stay again and like the children said "can we come back please".

This was the second time we have stayed there and was just as nice as last time. Derek and Rhian are wonderful hosts , nothing is too much trouble, breakfast is great and keeps you going for most of the day. We are already booked for our third stay.

Me and my wife stayed here again for the weekend, and again we were more than impressed with The Wilmar. Derek and Rhiannon are so friendly chatty and they even gave us 2 free tickets for a show, the breakfasts are amazing with a lot of choice, freshly cooked and highly filling!
The hotel is ideally located right by the Pleasure beach and 2 minute walk from the front, if your looking for somewhere Home from Home to stay in Blackpool this is the place

This was my 2nd visit to The Wilmar (Myself, my mother, my daughter and her friend), a 3 night stay, and I will definitely be going back again. Derek and Rhianon are, in my opinion, the perfect hosts - I hesitate to call them hoteliers as staying there is like a home from home. They are very friendly and welcoming, and there was a cup of coffee in my hands within 5 minutes of arriving, and Derek helped us with our cases up to the extremely clean rooms, with very comfy beds, complimentary bottles of water, chocolates on the pillow, and freeview TV. The breakfast is awesome - you choose what you want from an extensive list on arrival, but your choices can also be altered each day if you require, and it tastes out of this world, the best English breakfast I have tasted anywhere. The location is 5 mins from the Pleasure Beach, which pleased the kids, and I got parked right outside the hotel. Derek gave us travel advice about where to go, and had discount vouchers for some places. They both checked regularly that everything was ok and if they could do anymore for us. All in all, for a 3 star hotel, I received 5 star service and would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Blackpool - Even the prices are very reasonable - Cheap prices, but no corners cut on service or experience .. Thanks Derek and Rhianon, and we look forward to staying there again
