“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

My partner and I stayed here for three nights for our 11th Anniversary we couldn't have wished for a nicer place .John and Lorna are lovely hosts and couldn't do enough for us, they made us feel right at home .John makes the most awesome breakfasts and scrambled eggs to die for.And Lorna we could have sat and listened to her tales all day .The room was bright and airy ,the bed was very comfortable .Towels were changed daily and if you forget any toiletries don't worry as there are a wide range of mini toiletries including a razor ,toothbrush and toothpaste .There were also a good selection of refreshments including muffins and biscuits.In all john and Lorna are lovely people who run a great establishment and we will definitely becoming back .

Stayed for 2 nights in august. First time i've stayed in Blackpool and what a wonderful little hotel it was. The owners couldn't be any more helpful, room was great along with breakfasts. Only down side would be the parking as I had to park in the suburbs of the town, however this seems to be the case with any hotel in Blackpool. Overall, would recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay here again.

I booked online for the Bank Holiday weekend. I had only been to Blackpool for a day visit before so was unsure of which hotel to use (Glad I picked this one). We arrived around 11am and check in isnt until 2pm, but John allowed us to leave our bags there and said we could booked in later on. Once we checked in, Lorna gave spoke to us and then took us to our room - it was lovely, very clean and a sea view. Bed was very comfortable, didnt want to get out of it. The breakfast was yummy-plenty to chose from. The hotel is in great location, just walk to the end of the room and pleasure beach is to your left and the Tower is to your right.
Really enjoyed the weekend and cant wait to use the hotel again.

We booked this online for the Bank Holiday weekend - as we've visited Blackpool a few times we have a favourite Hotel but it was very pricey for this particular weekend. After reading the great reviews online, we booked the New Phildene Hotel.
We arrived in Blackpool about 10:30am and we were able to leave our luggage there while our room was being cleaned (check in isnt until 2:00). John advised us where to park as car parking can is difficult to find so close to the Seafront - so we parked up in a private car park which gave us peace of mind. When we went out for the day the next day we didn't manage to get a space back in this car park but there was one further beyond St Chads Rd behind the Yates (Council owned) which was a similar price.
When we checked in we were happy with the room - very clean, very well finished. Lovely little touches such as muffins and cookies, a range of hot drinks, beautiful toiletries etc. A lot of thought clearly goes into this Hotel. Plenty of towels which was a treat - some Hotels are stingy with towels! Lorna gave us lots of info when we checked in and saw us into our room - she was so welcoming and helpful.
After a great nights sleep we had a nice shower and went down for breakfast - delicious! There was absolutely everything you could want - so i'll pick the best bits - Smoothies which John makes, a huge range of Museli and beautiful cooked breakfasts. Thick bacon, 'proper' sausages from a local butcher, black pudding....the list goes on. It was so tasty! Plenty of tea and fruit juice on offer too. Lorna and her staff were so attentive and keen to make sure we'd had enough to eat - what great service!
The second morning I had scrambled eggs which were absolutely beautiful - I wish I could make them that well! The other half had his Full Monty again - and devoured the lot!
Lorna and John make an effort to speak to each customer before the leave - you just don't get this kind of service any more. We will definitely return because we cannot fault it.
Thank you so much for a great stay.

Also, we should add that the location is great - a few paces from the sea front/tram stop. Turn left for the Pleasure Beach and right for the Town Centre - perfect.

Room Tip: We had room 16 - a lovely seaside theme! I'm sure all the rooms are lovely though.

We came here for the weekend and loved it. Owners we're lovely and helpful, rooms lovely with 2 bottles of wine and box of chocolates waiting for us when we arrived. Breakfast was very nice with a wide choice. No car park but literally around the corner there is one so that was no bother atall. Already recommended to a few people and would without doubt stay here again.

Stayed for 2 nights in August was very good, the b&b was very clean and really good food. Located in a brilliant place, in the middle of all the places to go and see while in blackpool. The decor was very modern and they made you feel very at home. Not your average small b&b, more like a small hotel. Will defo be back.
