Nice location to winter garden but nothing else. We stayed there for 9 nights and ....the only good thing is how close it is to winter garden. Regarding cleaning, then it need better cleaning. And all the hotels and the rooms we had they are screaming for maintenance. The only thing they seems to care about is to get there...

Good clean and tidy hotel. Central location close to the all the main attractions. Comfortable room with TV, nice hot shower, tea and coffee facilities. Nothing fancy but perfect for the money, will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Blackpool.

Hotel was so close to the winter gardens, blackpool tower. Very nice accommodation. Staff was helpful, i had a late check in without any additional fee. Blackpool is beautiful city. Weather was not so bad.

You get what you pay for. People writing these reviews somehow are expecting the place to look like the Hilton for 45 quid a night.

Love this place, you can't really go wrong for the money, if your looking for a cheap B&B to stay in, then this is the place for you. Very friendly family that own the place, always polite, never had any issues, we've stayed here every year for the last 5 years.

I would recommend people stay as far away from here as possible, not because of the rooms or food but due to customer service. I had booked a night to stay in January but I actually booked the wrong date and had booked it for December instead. Because this was a month early, the hotel phoned me up to ask...

We decided to book this hotel for ourselves and our 2 boys for our wedding anniversary as a little break away. We stayed for 1 night & really couldn't fault it. The location was very good, we were able to park in a pay & display car park around the corner which the staff member at the hotel recommended to...

Room was very basic but clean good location needs a refurbishment as decor looks dated and tired we were the only guests in ! Probably wouldn't use it again but the location was very good for the winter gardens and shopping centre
