Friendly owners but the place needs a revamp/shutting down, family run hotel, you can tell that by the kids running round the bar, using the bar area as there sitting room, reminded me of "The royal family", not funny though Will not stay here again, very poor value at £55 night, room only

Stayed here when a group of us were going for a night out in Blackpool, we paid something like £14 each for b&b, cheap and cheerful is what I expected but no, the bathroom had a distinguished disgusting smell...

I have just stayed for two nights. I was a little apprehensive after booking when I saw some of the comments on here However the place was lovely. My children and I loved the room, it was cosy, clean and comfortable. The bedding smells divine! Breakfast was delicious! This family run B&B was like a home away from home. All...
