The Glen is a lovely place to stay. Spotlessly clean, comfortable with nice little extras in the rooms. Johns Full English breakfast is the best in Blackpool. Don't give it a second thought just book it.

We had a lovely stay here and will definitely be going again. The room was very clean and tastefully furnished something we have never achieved when stopping in Blackpool previously.

Only a small guest house, but John the owner is brilliant. Looks after you as soon as you walk into the place. We went to see dreamboats and petticoats and he put us in the mood playing the cd at the bottom of the stairs as we were getting ready for this show.. breakfast to die for.

We stayed 3 nights at the Glen guest house and it comes well recommended. John was very welcoming and nothing too much trouble to ensure an enjoyable stay. The guest house was lovely, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic and cooked to perfection.

So pop in for a drink before going to explore what Blackpool has to offer. New for 2014 is a discount card that is free to guests and offers a huge variety of discounts, from restaurants to clubs to Funny girls , etc. Just ask for your card on check in.
