“The helmshore - fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

We stayed at The Helmshore last weekend for the 1st time. This hotel is everything we wanted, immaculately clean, family orientated, great breakfasts, great location and not forgetting the lovely Terry and Jenny who could not have made us feel more welcome than they did. Lovely friendly people and I can see me being a long term returner, there is no need to ever look any where else again. It's just perfect. Already booked for new year and hoping for a sneaky weekend again before. Thank you Terry and Jenny - thoroughly enjoyed our stay, very relaxing.

Stayed at the helmshore with family for a weekend break. The hotel is really clean, could smell the cleanliness when u walked in. Owners very nice and really helpful, catered for our needs really well. Morning staff nice and helpful, especially the man on breakfasts, very cheerful. Overall a great hotel and would recommend. Can not wait to return for new year with more of the family.

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.

Room Tip: No swimming pool/fitness centre -accidently marked it and cant undo for some reason! My room tip w...

Just back from 3 days in Blackpool,stayed at the Helmshore hotel in Charnley Road.Staff are very friendly and couldn't do enough for you.Room was clean and beds were really comfortable,tea and coffee were supplied and replenished each day,only thing i could moan about is if you like fresh towels each day take some of your own.The breakfast was excellent and there was a choice if you don't like full english every day, i had elderly parents with me and they didn't leave a thing on their plates.Hotel has a lift so really handy if you can't manage stairs.It is also in a great location for all that Blackpool has to offer.

Fantastic Hotel, hosts Terry & Jenny make you feel so welcome. Fantastic breakfasts with plenty to eat, staff asking repeatedly if you want more tea / coffee & toast, hotel staff are very friendly. En-Suite rooms are lovely & clean with flat screen tv`s, welcome tray & extremely comfortable beds. Lift to all floors, lovely brand new carpet in reception & stairs. Jenny always asks if everything is alright. Have been coming to The Helmshore for years, well done Terry & Jenny.

We stayed at the Helmshore last weekend for a hen party. There were 41 of us, and I must say Terry and Jenny couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating. excellent value for money, breakfast included which was really nice, and if you sweet talk Tezza he'll keep the bar open til you drop! They take everything I their stride, can't do enough for you and the hotel is clean, tidy and in a good location. Would defo go back. :)

My self and 3 friends stayed for one night 7th July. Greeted by Jenny upon arrival, We arrived several hours early but Jenny said the room was available so we were allowed to go straight up to our room which was fantastic, the room was really welcoming and spotless, nice size flat screen tv and the beds where extremely comfortable, Breakfast was at 9am the staff were very friendly and breakfast was really nice generous portions, we were constantly asked if we would like more toast, tea/coffee which was superb, Jenny came round to everyones tables asking how everyone was etc she is such a lovely lady. Would definitely stay again planning to hopefully return in September and have already recommended to friends and family!
