Lovely find. Little bit too cold for me. Owner could not do enough for you. Very fresh breakfast, cooked fresh to order for you. Great location, just seconds from the beach. What a lovely find, will be booking again on our next visit.

The hosts Debs and Anthony could not have been more lovely. The bar/dining area is full of pop and rock memorabilia as is the whole hotel. The 60s room was plenty big enough for the two of us and the bedding was like a permanent cuddle it was so soft.

The owners were very accomodating when we arrived 4 hrs early and let us check-in then. The Mercury suite was clean and comfortable. It was chilly during the night, but it was freezing outside . The breakfast was fab and plenty of it

Many thanks for the review. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the themed room. Next time you come to Blackpool you need to stay for longer, then on the days you are not checking out, you can stay in bed all day. Anthony & Debs.

We had been recommended this bed and breakfast by friends, and it was all we needed. We were well looked after by Anthony and Deborah, from arrival to breakfast to them sorting us a taxi.
