Apparently The NorthernStar is under new ownership and the guys could not be more friendly and welcoming. The B&B had a real Christmassy feel to it with lots of decorations and scented candles...

This truly is a little Gem. Location is brilliant. Right on the doorstep of Blackpool Town Centre and Funny Girls. But on a quiet road to ensure a good nights sleep in the most comfortable beds ever! Breakfast is lovely and the bar which is open whenever you want it, is reasonably priced. Brendan and Carl can't do enough for...

Then to be ordered down...

Our last response was removed - These people were not guests, they did not pay for the room, they came back in the night with the people who had paid for the room. The people who had paid left early, they were caught left behind in the room and have the audacity to leave a bad review here when they...
