from the moment me my girlfriend and my young daughter walked through the door, i was hit with instant realisation of what a homely, welcoming hotel this was. there was nothing the family wouldnt do to make our stay as smoth and as blissfull as possible. tea coffe, pop for the little one...free, and available 24/7. the room was clean, modern, had all mod cons and had a lovely view.
marie, andy, lauren, amy and james were on a jimmy saville / cliff richard level of nice. amy and lauren were almost "babysitters". they organised entertainment (pass the parcel, dancing, games etc.) for the kids, there were games consoles, sports equipment, nothing had been left, not even the smallest of details. the breakfast was AMAZING, generous, and we were asked again and again if we were happy / full.
the bar was generously priced (£2.50 a pint of anything) and stayed open as long as you wanted it to!
it was definately a home from home and i would reccommend to anybody from singles to familys for a clean welcoming stay, where your hosts care about your happiness and you dont pay over the odds. 10/10 in terms of doing eveything you would expect and so much more.

WOW! I don't think I can find enough words to describe our exceptional stay!
A friend and I stayed here for only 1 night, and wished we had been able to stay longer! The family, Marie, Andy, Amy & Lauren are more than welcoming, infact they go way above and beyond all and any expectations.
The atmosphere is that of visiting family, the family really are that lovely. Nothing was too much trouble, Andy even took us to drop off our car and gave us a ride back so we didn't get lost!
The hotel was clean, comfortable and so reasonably priced. In excellent proximity to all the highlights of Blackpool, and this hotel is certainly one of them! I can't imagine staying anywhere else!
The food was out of this world - I highly recommend the home made chips, better than any we've ever tasted before! We loved the extra details such as checking what we'd like for breakfast so as not to overload our plates with any we might not like, and we didnt need until dinner time that evening!
I cannot recommend the hotel highly enough, and already we are planning our next trip back.
Thank you so very much for making our stay such a memorable one. WIth Love & Best wishes to you all, Emma & Susan xx

We were recommended Arties by friends, and are thankful for their recommendation. We have never stayed in such a warm and welcoming environment. As soon as we got there we had a warm drink before we went up to our rooms, Andy helped us with finding parking once our car was unloaded, and the place was very clean, tidy and fresh, far exceding our expectations from previous experiences of Blackpool. 60 seconds walk onto the front, 15-20 minutes walk to the Pleasure Beach, it was ideally situated for us. Will definitely use Arties again. Tracey & David

We stayed here for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. From the moment we arrived we felt like we had known Andy and Marie for a long time. Nothing was too much trouble and we didn't feel uncomfortable asking if we needed anything. The welcome cuppa was great as was the farewell one! The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was scrummy and kept us going all day. It was great that we could specify what we wanted and that it was cooked freshly to order. Our sons, Adam and Mathew really had a lovely time, the Pringles machine made Mathew's holiday and there was plenty for them to do. Mathew's parting words were 'can we come back next year?' and 'Marie is like an auntie!' Thank you to all of you. See you next year.
