Arrived here for a one night stay in Blackpool. Ignore the pictures because it looks nothing like the place. The canopy on the outside is all ripped and could do with a lick of paint. The b and b on entrance smelt of dog (although didnt see one) When walking in to the hotel the manager could also do with...

The web site described this a boutique hotel but if you are looking for small, chic and clean - forget this one. We arrived to find that the clean, well presented exterior in photo was shabby and in need of painting. The interior was dark and gloomy, the carpets in the communal area were heavily stained- filthy. We stayed in...

They all made it a great experience and one that we hope to repeat again soon. The room we stayed in had good facilities and was very modern and...

Stairs smelt of wet dog. Landlord and family used public bar as living room. Staff/family smoking on doorstep- had to walk around them. Kettle was filthy. On the plus side the beds were very comfy and the hotel was quiet at night. Landlord was helpful and attentive.

We stayed here for one night with family and a small toddler on 1st October 2014. We were greeted with a warm welcome. Location is great, away from the hustle & bustle, but in good walking distance.
