Not much to add about this top quality B&B that hasn't already been said. We stayed in the Seaview suite which was excellent in every way, spotlessly clean, well furnished and included loads of little unexpected extras. We were greeted with coffee and cake on arrival. Hosts were fantastic, breakfast was great and set you up for the day. In...

Another fantastic stay at the Number 42, this was our 3rd time here and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Blackpool. Ann really does go out her way to make your stay as special as possible. Nothing is too much trouble. The place is modern, clean and rooms are very spacious. Breakfast is amazing! Looking forward to our next stay. Xx

Stayed for 5 nights for the punk fest at the winter gardens. Warm greeting and comfy bed with a great breakfast. Special mention for the local Butcher's sausage and black pudding. The star of the show is Audrey the matriarch of the establishment (now retired). Please say hello to her for me?
