Travelled as a family with my partner and 2 year old daughter and decided to stay at the Beauchief Hotel after seeing all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor.
I was not dissapointed. This was our first time staying in a guest house rather than a main-stream hotel so we didn't really know what to expect.
When we arrived, we was greeted by a lovely gentleman named Dave and his wife Judy, who are both, salt of the earth and very genuine people.
We was shown to our room which was spotless, large and could accommodated a travel cot with still ample room to move around. The room was fitted with a new fire alarm and also a combined TV/DVD player with Dvd's available at no extra cost from the day room. Just a little added bonus for us!
We only stayed B&B as you NEVER know what to expect from food hygiene but I was very surprised to see the Guest House awarded a 5 star food and hygiene service award.
The breakfast was amazing, orange juice followed by cerial with choices of rice crispies and cornflakes, and finally followed by.....a FULL English breakfast. Toast (with either jams or real butter) fried eggs, bacon, sausages and beans, all piping hot and the eggs are probably one of the best I've had staying out.
This Guest House truely is a "Home from Home" and I think my partner said it best when she said "Dave and Judy are very accomadating and always on hand when needed and couldn't do enough for us".
I would strongly recommend anybody thinking of visiting Blackpool to give this place a try, you will not be disappointed. A nice bar area, good food, very clean rooms and only 5 mins to the tower. No wonder The Beauchief has been awarded a certificate of excellence from Trip Advisor. We shall be returning in Sept 17 for the illumination.
