Stayed here for the weekend. Spend time checking out the hotels and there are plenty to choose from on st chads road. The research definitely paid off.Arrived on Friday and was warmly greeted by Mark and offered a cup of tea and a homemade mince pie. The room was spotlessly clean and spacious. Breakfasts are plentiful and of a very...

Stayed here with my parents in October. We were visiting family and friends in Blackpool. This was our first time staying at The Kenley. My mum and dad stayed in the first floor kingsize room. I was in Room 4. Both rooms were absolutely spotless! I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel that pays so much attention...

We have stayed here numerous times before. Josie and Mark have excellent hosting skills and make their guests very welcome. Mark`s breakfast is second to none---his home-baked has to be sampled. Rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable, and tastefully decorated throughout, with a fine attention to detail. The Kenley has to be seen to be believed!!!!!

What can I say about the Kenley that hasn't already been said by myself and all the other guests who have stayed here? Well, simply that the new hosts, Josie and Mark have moved things up a notch from excellent to fabulous. I have said in a previous review that the Kenley sets the standard for Blackpool to follow, and...
