“What a gem, outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

My girlfriend and I have just returned from our stay in this newly refurbished bed and breakfast and have found the whole experience very welcoming and friendly. When we arrived we were offered refreshments in the gorgeous entrance area whilst chatting to Caz and Olivia who were genuinely interested in what we had to say. We were took to our room which was the Deluxe king room and was simply amazed at the standard of the room. Everything was immaculate, clean with modern, contemporary furniture throughout. We even had a mini fridge full with cans of pop and bottled water. The entertainment system was fantastic. We had a HUGE TV with Sky+ with all movies and sports channels, an iphone docking station and a DVD player. The bed was so comfortable and even had changable LED mood lighting around the headboard. Breakfast was beautifully presented in our room, well served and the portions were just perfect! Nothing was too much trouble, Caz and Olivia are the perfect hosts. The Pool is situated in the quieter North Shore part of Blackpool. And contrary to what the earlier reviews say they don't accept stag or hen parties so is a great place for families. On leaving they let us leave our luggage after we checked out saving us dragging our bags around with us. I can honestly believe it when Caz and Olivia say guests who stay in the deluxe room tend not to go out! This is a hidden gem in the hustle and bustle of Blackpool and we will not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Go for the deluxe room! Is worth paying the little extra.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Burns in Blackpool for a hen party. Unlike a few other stag and hen friendly hotels we have stayed in, this place was clean, bright and tidy. The couple who own it are very friendly and helpful, they booked cabs for us and let us leave our luggage after we checked out so we could go out on our last day without dragging bags with us. The beds were the comfiest that I have ever slept in away from home. We hope to go back again soon.

  • Liked — the comfy beds. Lovely people
