“Best B&B in Blackpool!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

I have stayed in Blackpool several times and so feel quite well placed to comment on the standard of accomodation there. Usually the rooms are very small and out-dated, the bathrooms tiny and dirty and breakfast is hit or miss. Barton House is by far the best B&B i have stayed in! The bedroom was massive as was the bathroom. Both were beautifully decorated with an a vast selection of extras from chocolates, bath robes, slippers, cosmetics, the list goes on and on! Breakfast is delivered to your room at whatever time you specify and is outstanding! The owners couldnt of been nicer or more helpful! The position of Barton House is also very good, about a 50 metre walk to the beach/promonade. Which means you dont get all the idiot stag parties outside your window! Blackpool town centre is about a 30 min walk away, however there is a tram stop about 5 mins walk away and costs about £1.50 per person to the centre. All in all a FANTASTIC place to stay!!

Stayed for 3 nights, very good value and excellent location - the promenade is at the end of the road. The room was lovely, a good size with a clean and modern en-suite. The breakfast was brilliant - you request what time you want breakfast the night before, then in the morning your order is taken and breakfast brought to your room. I was amazed when Jo brought in a tray full each morning it really was lovely especially considering the room prices. Did not hear any noise from other guests (stayed in Room 4).

Have never been in such a well stocked B&B room before - robes and slippers, hair dryer, plasters, sealed tooth brushes and all sorts in the bathroom.

Make sure you plan your route well if you arrive in the dark as the area is roads and roads of guest houses.

Jo and John are very nice, genuine friendly people, and ask for their Sunday lunch tip (Quilligans) fantastic meal.

Would happily recommend to others visiting Blackpool.

When we arrived at the b&b jo literally came running up the road to greet us as she was down the street seeing her friend, from that moment she was a gem of a hostess, the room was stunning, the wash room was second to none , breakfast was more than we ever expected, we forgot we booked a dulux room and when we arrived we would have actualy paid an extra £20 a night for the room ( that's not for you to charge us extra next time jo ) lol but we will go nowhere else to stay now that we have stayed at the Barton.

Thank you for a wonderful 5 days stay jo and John and we are so looking forward to returning very soon and will recommend to all our friends who frequent Blackpool regular

Upon arrival we were informed that a parking space had been saved for us right outside the B&B, the first of many lovely touches Jo and John would provide. We were shown to our room and it was outstanding, black and white art deco. The en-suite was huge and the decor was in keeping with the bedroom. There were Lindt eggs and mini eggs laid out which was a nice touch. Any info we required on local shows, dining etc were eagerly given to us by the hostess with the mostess Jo. We gave our breakfast order early evening and the time we would like to eat and bang on time in the morning there was a knock on the door and John was there with a huge tray of all our order plus more. Having breakfast brought to your room is a great touch and very relaxing sitting at the little table and watching the world go by as you devour the gorgeous full English cooked to perfection by Jo. This was by far the best B&B we've ever stayed in and have booked to go back in July. Keep up the good work Jo and John, you should be proud to run an awesome establishment and we cant wait to go back. Cheers, Si and Jo.

Have just returned from a weekend at Barton House and will definitely be returning at some point in the future!

We had a bit of a nightmare start to the weekend with cancelled trains and realising we had booked the wrong weekend, but Jo and John couldn't have been more helpful to us, sorting out a room for us and waiting for us to arrive on the next train.

On arrival we were shown to our room, which was a good size and nicely decorated, with an en-suite almost as big as the bedroom. Everything we needed was available to us, and as others have said the chocolates on arrival was a nice touch.

Breakfast in the room was great, our order was taken at a time we chose in the morning and cooked fresh for us. There was plenty of choice for breakfast, and everything we had was lovely.

Overall we had a really nice stay, Jo and John were incredibly helpful, and we will return to Barton House on our next visit to Blackpool!

We have stayed with John and Jo a number of times and have never been disappointed. They are a super couple who do all they can to make your stay perfect. Nothing is to much trouble and they are so friendly it is like going to stay with old friends. Breakfast in your room is a great touch and all the little extras including chocolates& fluffy robes provided in wonderfully comfortable rooms make us return again and again. Keep up the good work and we will see you next year.

Room Tip: Sorry not telling as we want to book our favourite room again.
