Just returned from an overnight stay at the Helmshore. Have to admit im usually only pushed to write reviews as a warning to others but i just had to say i (and the other girls in our party) were very impressed with how warm and welcoming the owners are, they just couldnt do enough to make sure we were all happy and well looked after from the minute we arrived, have honestly never experienced such genuine friendliness from anywhere ive ever stayed before. The lovely couple that run it were always on hand and at breakfast they even remembered that 2 of us were vegetarians, having mentioned it the day before (was amazed as there were so many other guests including another large party) and made us meat free sausages and made sure we had loads of tea, coffee and toast. The place itself is ideally placed, we even had a perfect view of the tower from the bathroom window! Rooms were minimalist but had flat screen tv and the beds were very comfortable. Fair enough the decor could do with updating but i suppose thats part of the blackpool b&b charm. Everywhere was clean tidy and presentable overall. Theres a lift to all floors which was a life saver plus a sheltered private area right outside the bar for smokers. Had a great time, made even better by the accomodation, which for the price we paid we honestly werent expecting anything like this. Will be recommending this lovely place to anyone heading to blackpool, hope i get the chance to go back myself.
