This was my second stay at Rossdene House and it wont be my last. The owner Ernest was a great host, our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Ernest works hard to make sure that all of his guests are catered for and he makes you feel like a friend visiting his home rather than just a paying guest. The accommodation is excellent value and located in a quiet street not too far from the centre. Be sure to take advantage of Ernest's local knowledge. He steered us towards an excellent restaurant, Kwizeen 45 King Street, Blackpool, which produced great food at a great price. The staff were extremely friendly and there was a decent, well priced wine list. I will definitely go there again on my next visit to Rossdene House.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights over the Easter weekend 2012. The hotel was excellent. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were lovely. The host, William was fantastic. He made us feel so at home and nothing was too much bother. The hotel is in a lovely quiet part of Blackpool but still near enough to walk to the town.

Room Tip: Room 5 was excellent and it had a little sea view.

This is the fourth time we have stopped at this establishment and again what a fantastic stay. Beds are lovely and comfortable in fact you don't want to get out of them. We have room 7 which is a family room so there is loads of space. William the host is very sociably and nothing is to much trouble.
Breakfast is lovely all freshly cooked. Proper coffee not instant.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 2 nights in the last week of October 2011. This B&B is a great find. The accommodation is tidy and clean, and the décor was modern and fresh. The shower was hot and powerful.

The full English breakfast was great, just the right portion size and had the best fried egg I have had in a long time.

The host William is a great chap, and very accommodation. He also has some great stories to tell and has a great sense of humour as well.

The location of the B&B is just right - you can walk to the north pier in about 15mins, or hop on the tram of which the nearest stop is about 3mins walk away (assuming the tram isn't packed and sails straight past the tram stop).

I was luck to get a parking spot on Gynn Ave. Be warned, parking is a nightmare on this street during the season, and you are not lucky, you will need to park elsewhere (either paid for or a few streets away).

All in all, a nice B&B with reasonable prices with a great host.

PS, I just noticed that the review below this one is from someone based in Rugby. This is no relation to me and is only coincidental.

The owner is a great host, makes a delightful breakfast, has fantastic clean and well stocked bedrooms. Ideal location and would definitely recommend. The children loved it and want to go back! Travelled with my husband and 2 children for 2 nights. No negatives at all for Rossdene House and I'm fussy!! ;0)

William is the most helpful and entertaining person you could wish for while on a short break or holiday. We were there for my sons 8th birthday weekend and to see the world championship fireworks, Spottless rooms, very welcoming bar and dining room great breakfasts ....what more do you need!!

William even moved his own car so I could park outside! how many people would give this sort of service.....We would stay again and recommend to anyone... Great place dont hesitate book your room!!
