I'm a regular visitor to Blackpool and when I stay overnight, I always check in here. Paul and Steph are very friendly people, excellent rates for rooms, gorgeous breakfasts, lovely clean rooms and it's central location means everything is within walking distance. Can't recommend it enough.

We came on 15th Sep 2012 for a hen night, party of 14. Hosts were very pleasant, and made every effort to welcome us, and give us information about where to go. They also gave us a VIP card for free as long as we gave it back before we left. Rooms were very basic but clean. Breakfast was excellent....

We booked via laterooms. Arrived to an en-suite double room which literally had a double bed a small walkway at the side of the bed, leading into the bathroom. Small drawers at the end on the bed, wardrobe - or rather a hanger was in the bathroom for the rest of your clothes. Not brilliant, as they would get mouldy...

Booked via laterooms a small double en-suite room, on guests checking in we did ask if late rooms informed them of the room size (small) they said no ! so before checking these guests in we showed them the room first, they said the room was fine and not too worry. We did offer these guests a larger double room...

“I have stayed in a few of their different rooms and all are comfortable. Some are bigger than others, i dont really care about the size since i dont go there to spend time in the room but if you wanted a bigger room just ask and if they accommodate they will. They have a nice sized family room at the top which i think can accommodate up to 5-6 people.”
