This is a fairly typical old hotel/B&B for Blackpool. The family who run it are very friendly and approachable, and have a couple of parrots by the front door, which was a nice surprise. To be honest, the building needs some work doing (our floor was sloping, the bathroom door slid difficultly, and there were patches of damp on the ceiling, despite fresh decor), but it's clear that great pride is taken in the day-to-day running; the room was immaculately clean and cosy.
Downstairs is a games room and bar, with pool table.
Breakfast was very nice too, cooked to order.
This is less than 10 minutes from Blackpool South station, in the quieter part of the town, and is therefore easy to reach. The Golden Mile is about 5 minutes away.
I would not hesitate to consider staying here again.
Booked family room, 2 adults and a 4 year old. Nice little treats (drink & sweets) left on the bed for my daughter. This was a chair bed, the metal folding mechanism a little exposed (as with any chair bed0, but caused no problems for her during the night.
All nicely clean and tidy - only a half bath, but sufficient for a short stay.
Was very impressed with the waiting staff for the in-house Italian restaurant (which doubles up for breakfast), very well mannered and appeared sincere - among the best waiting staff I have ever encountered at any restaurant. Not constantly bugging you during your meal to make sure everything is fine, just made sure it was perfect when they gave you the food - which was also very nice.
