We went for a two night anniversary break, it was fab,John was so welcoming. The guest house was immaculate so clean and everything you need is there. The food was delicious with plenty of it. The beds were so comfy too. We got engaged while we were there John got us chocolates and our first card. He's lovely, would recommend this beautiful place to everyone.We ended up staying an extra night. We will definitely be going back there. Thanks John xx

We stayed at the Glen Guest House from the 15th-17th Feb 2014 as the hotel we had originally booked with was cancelled last minute. All I can say is we were not dissapointed, so glad we stayed here.The guest house is very modern and clean and nothing is a problem to the owner John, you can clearly see he takes pride in what he's got. Also I would like to thank Carlos for the Tapas he made us and the amazing allioli! We would without a doubt, most definitely stay here again!! Keep up the good work, you're doing an amazing job. Oh and the breakfast is excellent - the choice is all yours!!!

See you soon, Gail and Scott from Scotland x

The Glen Guest house is a superb place to stay, me and my boyfriend went there for a long weekend and it exceeded all our expectations. the rooms are beautifully decorated and come with all the essentials a hotel would provide. The breakfast is amazing, you can choose what you want for your full English (good for me as I'm a fussy eater!) and it is cooked to perfection. John the owner is welcoming, friendly and funny and Carlos is the same. We will definitely be going back in the summer! Everyone should go here!!

The Glen has to be without a doubt the best guest house/ b&b I have ever stay in. John the owner was very welcoming and helpful and best of all had good banter with the group. The rooms wer out off this world,with lots of freebies!!! ;) and extremely clean. Breakfast was beautiful and could pick wot u had on your plate with me being a picky eater was fab! We all really enjoyed our stay at the glen and this would be the only place we would stay when we come back 2 Blackpool.

Great value for money and close to the town so if your going to Blackpool the only place to stay is The Glen xx

We traveled down to Blackpool from newcastle 4 of us, to expect a good stay it was way over our expectations. We went off the reviews that are really good, experienced it for our selves and now know why all the reviews are brilliant because its a fab place to stay! John is brilliant very friendly & helpful. Breakfast is beautiful! The rooms are really nice there really clean and smart. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome by John and Carlos! We will be returning on our next trip to Blackpool without a doubt. I would advise people to go and see for them selves how good it is!

We had an absolutely amazing weekend at the glen guest house! Breakfast was gorgeous just what we needed to pull us around after a good drink in the guest house bar with john and carlos! I will definitely be recommending the glen to everyone who might be visiting blackpool, rooms were lovely and very clean, breakfast was gorgeous and there couldnt be a more kind and welcoming owner. We would have stayed another night if we could and we will definitely be returning to stay at the glen next time we visit blackpool!
