Sometimes you forget how friendly people can be.
When you are used to staying in large hotel chains, you expect a certain level of service, it had been a long time since I had stayed in a guest house and I wasn't expecting much.
Myself and my partner travelled to Blackpool for a cheesy birthday celebration after spending the majority of July in Rome.
We chose The Sands on the promenade, directly opposite South Pier and close to Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
The owners of the Hotel (apologies I can't remember any names) were incredibly friendly and very welcoming, their personal touches are what make this Hotel a stand out from others.
After a day out in Blackpool, we returned back to our room to be greeted with a birthday card, birthday banners and a mini bottle of champers, we were surprised and delighted with how thoughtful they had been.
Even after we overslept slightly and missed breakfast time they made an exception and provided us with a small breakfast out of hours.
The breakfast was a nicely cooked to order typical English breakfast that came with a choice of cereals. My only slight issue with this is maybe having a 9am cut off point for breakfasts was too early as I usually don't eat until mid morning but that may just be a personal thing.
The room we were given was the family room which provided plenty of space for 2 people, the en suite bathroom was fit with modern features and was clean and easily functional. The bed was soft and comfortable and provided a great nights sleep.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Sands and would recommend it to anyone visiting Blackpool
