This BnB is a disgrace I wouldn't stay there again if the rooms were free! The owner is a seedy man who thinks it's appropriate to proposition your partner when your backs turned unfortunately when my partner informed me of this he had gone out, in the morning I made a complaint to one of the waiting staff who informed...

We stayed there on the 30th of September for two nights, the outside of the hotel does not do the inside justice, at first sight we didn't know what to expect, but once inside we were pleasantly surprised, it is very modern in the reception and dining areas and has recently been renovated by the looks of it.

Stayed Friday to Monday to see the lights. Checked in very late on the Friday - the manager was very kind, excellent and very helpful. He even kept the bar open until we'd unpacked. The room was clean and tidy. Big enough for me, my partner and the baby. We took our own travel cot for the baby. Breakfast every... More

Booked 2 night stay. Very disappointed with what was meant to be a family room as smaller than our bathroom at home! Every single door had a locked keypad so you had only had access to stairs and your room. Never anyone around to help. Don't take any notice of the fact it states 2 licensed bars as we NEVER...

Stayed in a family room for two nights with a group of friends. Reminded me more of a hostel than a hotel. My suggestion would be to provide a free continental breakfast, everything which was out was fine (toaster slightly annoying as u had to feed the toast through twice). Then charge for a cooked breakfast and use higher quality... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sure as part of a party of five girls camped out in a family room for two days, late nights drinking and coming down for breakfast in pj's and going back to bed it did somewhat seem like a hostel!

We stayed 2 nights here, Friday and Saturday, in a double room. The manager who greeted us was very friendly and helpful, the reception rooms are clean and tidy, the bedroom was basic and older in comparison to the downstairs rooms, there's no bedside lamps, just a harsh, bright, main light which constantly buzzed, not too good for unwinding and...

Booked this room as a last minute deal on a Saturday night to view the illuminations. On arrival we were greeted in a friendly manner and from photos of the hotel online were optimistic about our room. Well we were hugely disappointed, it was nothing short of disgusting! A double bed which should be in a skip, huge hole in... More

Stayed this weekend with my family and what a lovely hotel. We inquired before arrival about parking and was informed that we could reserve a space for just £5. Bargain in central Blackpool.
