We love staying here and would recommend it to anyone. Ant and Debs are always more than welcoming and are practically like family now, and the hotel itself is amazing, we could never fault it. We would never go anywhere else!

Anthony & Debs were very welcoming upon my arrival. Their two friendly dogs were happy to see me and I was greeted with a quick Tour of the Hotel. Breakfast was excellently cooked every morning, and the room was tastefully themed and comfortable. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in Blackpool. It was a quick 20 minute walk...

Thank you for the review and we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. It's good to know that we were recommended by a previous fellow performer, and hopefully we will see you next time you are involved in a performance at the Grand or the Winter Gardens - Anthony, Debs, Tyson & Bruno.

We would like to thank Debs and Anthony for an excellent stay at the Mercury. The hotel is brilliant for any music fan and the hosts are fun and friendly. The location is very central so you are well located for everything. We would definitely stay here again

If your looking for a friendly, most comfortable, clean, good food, close to all the sights of Blackpool you can't get much better than the Mercury Hotel. My room was amazing. Thank you Anthony and Debs for looking after us.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It's a pleasure to have fellow musicians stay with us especially those who have sold millions of records and have just performed to a packed house at Viva Showbar.

Anthony and Deb's who run the Mercury could not have been more friendly or helpful on our stay there. Rooms are clean and tidy with interesting themes, only one Street back from the sea with fascinating rock memorabilia around the house. It's a definite again for me.

Had a pleasant weekend, nice room, good breakfast and very friendly owners. The only concern we had in room 1 was a bloody cold bathroom, a heated towel rail would help. All in all very good Oh and don't forget the smashing dogs, they sound worse than what they are !

Thank you for the review. We are pleased that you had a pleasant weekend and hope the fact that your wife was ill didn’t spoil things too much. It is difficult for us to address a “concern” retrospectively; however we will monitor this during the next extreme cold spell - Anthony & Debs.

We visit Blackpool as a family ' Tradition ' every year and have done so for the last 20 or so years.

Spent 4th and 5th of January 2017 at this great hotel, after a hectic xmas we needed somewhere to relax and what a perfect place. Anthony and Deborah are the perfect hosts at this Rock/music themed hotel. This is about the 6th time we've stayed here and we shall be returning later on in the year.
