The couple that own and run the guest house couldn't do enough for you. They ironed a shirt and jumper for me. The breakfast options are great. Full English breakfast was my choice and I loved it. The rooms are themed, very clean and well presented. I'll be staying here on my next visit to Blackpool.

Great weekend break
Good location, within walking distance of South & Central piers. Hosts were a pleasant couple and made sure we had everything we needed. There was plenty for breakfast, hot, cold or both if you could manage it. We would go back there if we return to Blackpool.

A pleasant place to stay for a short break
We enjoyed our stay at the Mercury over the weekend. The room was very clean and comfortable, the breakfast was tasty, and the hosts were friendly and helpful. The location is good, close to but not right on the front, and we managed to find a parking space on the street round the corner (though this might be rather more difficult to do at busier times).
