“Unexpected in a good way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Lovely room, friendly and helpful hosts and outstanding breakfast selection. Room had lovely touches, chocolates, water, cakes, biscuits and a small bottle of white and red wine. Bathroom had everything you could need, including individually wrapped toothbrushes with toothpaste, comb, sewing kit and toiletries for him and her.
Breakfast, the Fully Monty was enormous, with local butchers sausages, gorgeous, wonderful pots of fruit, granola and yoghurts and my husband was offered the best vegetarian breakfast that exceeded anything offered in any other hotel, including the big chains. Tempeh, vegan sausages, everything separately cooked, cereals, soya milk, soya yogurt, it goes on...

Stayed at the hotel on the 29th and 30th November. We were met by Lorna and offered tea and coffee. She told us about places of interest for our weekend. She then showed us to our room which was lovely. She'd even put some little cakes in the room for us.

The breakfast was fantastic, would definately stay there again.

My boyfriend and I were really impressed with our evening away and were glad we chose the New Phildene Hotel. It's location is great, off the main strip so you're not too close to all the noise, but within easy walking distance of the main attractions.

We stayed in a superior deluxe double, and it had everything we needed and more. We weren't too sure how to work the shower, and Lorna was instantly up to help. The room was spacious,decorated to a good standard in a tasteful modern style with the lovely added extras. It was well thought out in terms of plug sockets, lighting, mirrors etc and we had more than enough towels and hangers for the two of us.

The breakfast the next day was great, we were encouraged to eat as much as we could manage, and the cooked breakfast was gorgeous, a lovely treat. Lorna was an excellent hostess, she was so efficient and couldn't do enough to help and make us comfortable, you can tell she loves what she does.

If we were going back to Blackpool, we wouldn't stay anywhere else and would highly recommend this to anyone. We would want to return to stay in the same standard of room, and would say if you can manage, it's definitely worth the extra spend.

Thanks to Lorna who was a star

The hotel is warm comfortable and very friendly and is located in a quiet part of Blackpool yet close to the tower and theme park
the owners and staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble
The double ensuite room was small but nicely done out and also supplied tea' coffee' toiletries ' soft towels excellent the hotel is very clean and tidy
The breakfast is one of the best I have had in any hotel or b&b or cafe in Blackpool
Fresh fruit ' smoothies ' cereal ' cooked breakfast the menu is really top class I totally recommend a stay here you won't be disappointed

As always, an excellent stay at the New Phildene Hotel. Every time we visit Blackpool, which has been for many years now, we always stay at the New Phildene. There is absolutely no reason to stay anywhere else. The service we receive from Lorna and John is second to none. They strive each year to upgrade their facilities and services, and it is plain to see for anyone that stays there. Everywhere is clean, comfortable and tidy and the bedrooms are lovely. John's breakfast is better than we have received from a 5 star hotel for choice, quality and presentation, and together with Lorna's extremely excellent attention to detail, every possible special diet, nationality and personal preferences have been well thought out and catered for. You really won't get better anywhere else. It's well worth a visit to Blackpool just to get a chance to stay at the New Phildene. We would not hesitate to recommend to anyone, whether they are single, couples or families, and we are looking forward to our next visit. Very well done Lorna and John!!!!

Stayed at this hotel with my wife Friday to Sunday. We were met by the owners John and Lorna who were lovely and really helpful. The hotel is ideally located between Central and South pier. You just walk out and you are right on the promenade. Children and stag and hen parties are not alllowed which made it really nice and mainly couples. The breakfast was beautiful and catered for all tastes. John and Lorna made us very welcome and the rooms were very clean and well serviced. We had a double room which wasn't massive but we had plenty of room for a weekend break
We could have got cheaper accommodation but it was worth paying slightly more and I would definitely recommend this place to friends
