We were a group of 5 girls staying in Blackpool overnight. The whole process from booking and leaving this hotel was a breeze and a bargain. The staff were extremely friendly. We were met by the gorgeous Gloria who was working to entertain guests on the Saturday and even popped in to say goodbye on Sunday. Had lots of cheeky giggles with Jordan who served lovely cocktails at a bargain price of £3.00. The rooms were absolutely spotless and came equipped with clean towels, soap, tea and coffee facilities and a hairdryer. This hotel was definately one of the best I have stayed in when coming to Blackpool (and we have stayed in many). I will be booking again on our next visit. A big hello to all the staff from the 5 well behaved Rochdale girls :-)

We stayed two nights midweek, the rooms are clean and spacious and just around the corner from all the bars we required.
We will definetly be back ;-))
The bar and lounge area is fantastic!!!
The weather was good aswell which helped.
The breakfast did just the job after a heavy night ;-)))

I was going to Blackpool for one night with my partner, just to do all the things you never get to on a drunken weekend!!

When looking for a hotel in Blackpool it's never easy what with the 100's competing for the same business!! But I stumbled upon this place at £19pppn and thought it just a room... It will be fine!!

I wasn't expecting much however for the price very surprised, the hotel is very clean and has a lovely bar serving reasonable priced drinks.... We were even swayed into buying some cocktails at only £3.00 each!!

Upon check-in I was told we didn't have a smoking room, but a simple question and done... A smoking room we had :-) which is rare for hotels!! ;-)!

Now this isn't the Hilton and it doesn't bill itself as such! What to expect is good service, a clean room and tasty breakfast... And at £19 per person what more could you ask for! I really did expect less for my money but was pleasantly surprised!!

I can imagine a beehive of activity when this place is busy!!

If your going to visit Blackpool and the gay bars and clubs this is the place to stay .. It was only 2 minutes walk to the Flying Handbag and Funny Girls!!

NYE here sound like a blast also!!

Book it now and don't think the price will let you down!!

Just finished a lovely weekend in Blackpool and choose to stay at this B&B, when I first arrived I was greeted by one of the drag queen lets just say made me smile and was very charming which for me made me feel very welcome from the point go.. After checking in at a Bar I was taken to the room by one of the staff who helped me with my things. the room was a great size and very clean with a double bed and a single bed and it was again very welcoming.. The only slight thing and I mean slight is that the hallways smell of cigarette smoke, being a non smoker it's not great to smell first thing in morning when heading to breakfast. Would I stay here again yes. Thank you to all the staff

Thank you for your review. If you think breakfast is way to small, then you'd better go and see a doctor, you may have a problem, if you think endless amount of cereals, toast, a full english breakfast again endless amounts of hot and cold drinks you have a problem. The walk into town is no more than 5 minutes into the centre of the town, you must of walked in the wrong direction, the music may be loud but we close our bar at midnight and if your in bed before midnight in Blackpool I may suggest going to Eastbourne next time a much more quite than Blackpool
