great little hotel
Arrived late on a Saturday, got greeted by a lovely woman who gave us our key (we was in room 3). Took some details and off to the room we went, the room was very small, (this did not bother us as we only needed room for sleep) double bed which was so comfortable, draws with tea and coffee on inside the draws was a sewing kit and a hair dryer (cute idea) and a leaflet about the hotel and what to do in an emergency. little round table and chair. Shower cubicle, sink and toilet (all private to that room, as i no some places its shares bathrooms) all nicely decorated, bedding clean (looked like new bedding). We did't use the wifi so i cant comment on that, there was a TV on the wall but we only used this for music when we got ready to go out. The location was quite central. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and if we go to Blackpool again we will definitely book this hotel and advise friends to do so.
