2022 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
The Fossil Tree Hotel was awarded Best Sea view Guesthouse in England at the Travel and Hospitality Awards for 2020 and again in 2021, located on Blackpool's famous Queen's Promenade overlooking the beach on the quieter North Shore. Ideal for those looking for a adults-only Hotel where the emphasis is on your comfort, a good night's rest, spotless cleanliness and a great choice of breakfasts to suit all tastes (including vegetarian and Vegan) If that sound like you, then the award winning Fossil Tree is the place to stay. Located overlooking the beach, just a mile from the centre of Blackpool, yet a million miles from the noise, hustle and bustle of the centre. Popular with mature couples looking for a quiet hotel right on the coast with great access to the tram network and close to Blackpool, Bispham and Cleveleys. The Fossil Tree is licenced and offers a fully stocked 'Honesty' bar and guest lounge overlooking the beach, ideal for catching the sunset, or a cheeky tipple before you venture out for the evening. Plus free parking for all guests, well appointed modern ensuite rooms with full or side sea views and a delicious Fossil Tree breakfast all included in the rate.

Yet again our visit to the Fossil Tree was excellent. We cannot rate this little hotel highly enough. Rooms, food, location and not forgetting the hosts Chris and Chris are excellent. We have been going to this hotel for a number of years, we can highly recommend the Fossil Tree so if you are looking for a break, adults only hotel then this is the one. Thank you Chris and Chris see you again soon.

We booked at short notice for a 3 day break. Stayed in room 8, not many stairs to climb. It was very spacious. Breakfast was delicious and catered for all needs. Both Chris & Christine were fantastic hosts. It was home from home. An off road parking space allocated for every room. A short walk or tram, bus ride from Bispham or Blackpool. Would definitely return.

We decided to visit Blackpool for my wifes birthday, and wanted something a little bit more upmarket than your usual seaside b&b, and stumbled upon The Fossil Tree. The reviews looked encouraging, so we booked on the strength of them. We set off from home in good time, thinking bank holiday traffic would be against us, and arrived early as it wasn't too bad, expecting to be told we couldn't check in, however our host Chris, was more than welcoming, and allowed us to check in a little earlier than advertised. He took great time to explain everything, and we made our way up to our room, which was on the top floor, room 9. Just to note, if you struggle with steps, then perhaps any room over and above the first floor, may not be suited for you. Upon entering the room, we were pleasantly surprised as it was absolutely immaculate, and even had small touches like touch sensitive lamps with usb ports for charging your phone, proper pod coffee machine, free wi-fi throughout, just the little things that set it apart from others. Our bed was to die for. So comfortable that we wished we could have put it in the car and taken it home!!!! Breakfast was amazing. Beautiful and well presented, and again Chris was a proper host. It is taken in the front room at ground floor level, which also acts as a small bar, which in itself operates on an honesty box policy. Extra tea and coffee supplies for your room can also be obtained here. It is in a quiet part of Blackpool towards Bispham, perfect for us, and there is free parking for guests, but the tram stop is just over the road, meaning you don't need to use your car. Trams are every 15 mins both ways. So all in all, would we come back? Absolutely all day long. (But don't tell everybody about it.)
