We stayed here for one night on 17th September 2016. We stayed in room 6 which was perfectly adequate. This was a last minute booking and Margaret couldn't be more helpful or nice. Breakfast was hearty and tasty. Will be back.

Screen was a tad on the small size but the picture quality was excellent. There was a good wi-fi connection. The en-suite was... More

Had a lovely stay at this B & B in August 2016. Room was very clean and bed was super comfy. Location is ideal if you are looking for somewhere quiet yet within walking distance. It took us about 25 minutes to walk to the Blackpool tower, although it's about a 1 hour walk to the pleasure beach. The breakfast... More

Margaret is a wonderful woman and caters for all your needs, rooms are spotless and the full breakfast in the morning could not be better, probably the best little hotel in Blackpool and the price is unbeatable

We reserved the room directly over the phone which was easy. Parking is free outside, but spaces do fill up quickly and are rare. We were lucky to find a space just around the corner. The area was well presented and very quiet both during the daytime & evening. The B&B itself was very clean & tidy. Even though the... More
