This is a great place to stay in Blackpool. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The only thing I would say is could you change the duvets please to a king size as they are quite small for a double bed. That really is the only thing a matter. Lovely and clean the breakfast, a full English is smashing... More

it is 28 years since we were last at Blackpool and it has improved with age but still has the magic. there are some run down areas but the main promenade and surrounding area is fine. The Cameo is a great place to stay and in an excellent location, just behind the Tower. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Lovely B&B in an ideal location in Blackpool, easy walking distance to the beach and main attractions. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is excellent, with the vegan option an added bonus.
