Reviewed 25 September 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely stay here everything nice and clean. Clean towels, luxury bed, lovely breakfast, and most off all the best hosts. Plenty off choice at breakfast and space at the table so your not on top off each other. Nice area outside too go for a cigarette. Beach just 2 mjnutes Away and a twenty minute walk along to main Blackpool but Regular access too trams. Looking forward to our return in December if rooms.

We returned yesterday from a one night stay at The Smart Hotel and could not rate it highly enough. On arrival we were greeted by the very friendly owners Steve and Arlene and offered a hot beverage to warm up from the rain. Steve kindly helped us carry our belongings to the rooms and was very helpful and knowledgeable of the local area. Both rooms were spotlessly clean, cosy and tastefully decorated. My partner and I were actually put in the newly refurbished suite style room which was amazing and topped off our holiday. The location is also great for people looking to be away from the immediate hustle and bustle of Blackpool however the transport links were brilliant, with a tram and bus stop at the top of the street. Breakfast the following morning was also very good with an excellent selection and variety of choice. All in all I would definitely recommend the Smart Hotel if you want a personal, friendly service with a home from home feel. Loved every minute!

Room Tip: Room 10 is amazing!!

We have just spent five nights at Arlene and Steves Hotel with our two grandchildren.We found them to be the most friendly people we have ever met, as hosts,they could not do enough for you.
I have never had better breakfasts anywhere,and the room was lovely and clean with very comfortable beds.Our two grandchildren loved the bunk beds and both slept like logs.Location wise it is ideal as it not to far to all the attractions.Both my grandchildren loved Arlene and Steve so much,my grandson Harvey was reluctant to leave. My wife and I are visiting Blackpool in December with National Holidays,so I shall be calling in on Arlene and Steve then.I would recommend anyone looking for a good B&B in Blackpool to stay here.

I never usually write reviews but I thought I would for the Smart Hotel.
First of all the Hosts Steve and Arlene were so welcoming and the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly . The Hotel was clean and the breakfasts were very good.
We especially liked the way Steve and Arlene went out of there way to accommodate our fussy kids at breakfast time.
The Hotel is situated in the quieter side of Blackpool but not to far ,but this suited us perfect with having tired kids at the end of the day.

Thanks again Steve/Arlene for a lovely time.

Thanks so much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you and the children, we didn't find the children fussy at all and thought they were two great kids.

We stayed in Blackpool for a girls weekend away between the 28th-30th June, and we could not fault the hospitality and friendliness!. Breakfast was by far the best part of my day! Nothing was a problem, andwere more than helpful! (Even brilliantly catering for vegetarians).

Make note, these beds are so comfy! From working in a 4* country hotel, the usual habit is to look for faults, and i could not fault this place, and will be back ASAP!

Many thanks to the owners for making our trip so enjoyable, and taking four 19 year olds!
Loved the neighbours micro pig Pepper!

Big Cheers

Room Tip: double bed is so comfy

Girls, it was a pleasure to have you stay. You were what the younger generation should be, polite and well behaved. If you ever need references for staying elsewhere let us know.
