“Another enjoyable stay at the Helmshore”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

I stayed at this great hotel with my 9 year old son and parents for the illuminations switch on from 31 August for 4 days. This was our 3rd stay with Terry and Jenny at their very clean and excellently located hotel in Central Blackpool. Breakfasts are fantastic, staff are very welcoming and obliging and the hotel facilities are the best. There is parking available at the rear of the hotel, the bar and games room are brilliant and the lift to all floors is a bonus. We had tried several other establishments before discovering the Helmshore but will be staying again at this hotel in the future for many years to come. Thank you Terry and Jenny for another great holiday.

Stayed at this hotel tuesday to sat at end of August.Nothing is too much trouble for this couple Terry and Jenny. Breakfast is really amazing,the choice is excellent and it is all really fresh. The standard of the hotel is superb, rooms are very clean and tidy. The hotel bar is absolutley amazing. Nothing is nicer than staying at this hotel when in Blackpool. Looking forward to staying at new Year.....

We stayed for one night over the bank holiday weekend to attend a dance competition at winter gardens. The hotel staff were fantastic & couldnt have done enough for us.The location was perfect for where we needed to be. Jenny was brilliant with my daughter when she found out she hadn't won a cuddly toy in amusements she pulled out a selection of toys & let her choose one. Needless to say my daughter decided on the biggest one which needed its own seat on the way home. If we ever return to Blackpool again for an overnight stay this is where we will stay.

Spent Thursday to Monday at the Helmshore Hotel along with 3 friends whilst we attended the annual Punk festival held in Blackpool. We found Terry and Jenny to be amazingly helpful and kind during our stay - enjoyed full english / vegetarian breakfasts every morning, bedrooms were clean and well maintained. Liked it so much we've booked for next year already!

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.
