Dawn and Steve are the perfect hosts, on arrival was offered a cuppa before led to the spacious room all amenities was explained. The room was clean with very clean linen on a comfortable bed. Breakfast was very good, with cereal to start followed the perfect full English! In short the perfect stop off whilst in Blackpool.

Enjoyed our weekend though we only stayed 1 night as we were at the World Matchplay Darts. Some guest houses would only take a 2 night booking. We were with friends so needed 2 rooms. Location was great as we were away from the hustle and bustle of the main resort and it was a nice gentle walk back after...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Merginn is situated in the North Shore area of Blackpool where you will find it quieter and more relaxing, yet still within easy reach of all Blackpool'€™s many attractions. Buses and trams stop each end of the Avenue. Gynn Avenue is a lovely quiet street close to the Gynn Square. We are only a 2 minute walk to the promenade, and just a mile back into town and the Tower. ... more   less
