Positive Reviews

Outstanding Hotel Host

From the moment guests arrive at this hotel, they are made to feel welcome by the friendly and attentive host. Guests love that she shows great enthusiasm for not only the hotel, but the town of Blackpool as well. Nothing is too much trouble, and she enjoys telling guests about the town and all that there is to see and do.

Great Location for Beach Lovers

This hotel occupies a great little location in Blackpool, very close to the beach front, about a five-minute walk to the beach and the famous promenade. It's also convenient to Central Pier. There are some nice restaurants nearby to grab a meal or a cup of coffee or tea.

Negative Reviews

In Desperate Need of an Update

Guests say the rooms at this hotel are in need of a refurbishment. Guests report many broken amenities including broken windows, no signal for the TV, TVs not working properly, poor Wi-Fi, plugs not working, and broken hairdryers, among many other things. Repairs are needed, as is a massive deep clean and paint job. Guests also report uncomfortable beds, mainly due to bed springs poking out, which may prove dangerous.

Things Get Noisy

Guests report noise issues due to several factors, chiefly among them a shared bathroom which often has other guests going in and out at all times of the day and night. Windows are also quite thin, so guests can hear noise from traffic and people from outside.

Where's the Breakfast in B&B

Many guests think this is a bed and breakfast and are surprised and disappointed to find out that no breakfast is offered. Guests feel this is misleading.
