From the moment you arrive the passion these people put...

From the lovely warm welcome with tea and cakes, to the good advice on which Italian restaurant to eat at, this hotel is perfect in every way. Beautiful room, comfy bed and spotless bathroom, Steve and Elaine should be justifiably proud of their hard work and professionalism. The breakfast had a menu to choose from, and all the food is...

The room we had was one of the executive rooms and it was beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard. The breakfasts were huge and delicious. All in all, we had a...

The best place to stay in Blackpool without a shadow of a doubt! I am actually writing this review in The Arthington on my last night into a three night stay. You cannot fault this B&B in any way!

We had a brilliant two night stay here in October. We stayed in room 8, one of the executive rooms, it is beautifully decorated and the bed is extremely comfortable. The full English breakfast was fabulous. We would stay here again like a shot, and hopefully will do soon. It is very well located, near enough to walk to the...
