Stayed 2 nights for Northern Soul Weekender in the tower ballroom..Will never ever stay any where else in future.From the moment i walked in until they waved me off(lol)on Sunday morning.5 Stars through out,made every one very welcome,knew everyone by first names(although Sue's getting a bit confused with the name's bless her lol)The room's are spotless and have everything you need,and i'm sure if it didn't you would only need to ask,Attentive at all times and wow can Sue cook!! Brekkie was just like mum's,exceptional!!An exceptional couple who make a tough job look ever so easy.Visit these 2 and see how it's done..Well done the pair of you,fantastic time spent with you both.
See you in May

My husband and I spent a fantastic three nights in late October. Colin and Sue very warm and greeted us with a welcoming cup of tea. Breakfast excellent and plentiful. We stayed in room 9 and had a great view of the tower. Everything spotlessly clean with added extras such as toiletries, tea and coffee and even bottles of water!
This is an excellent hotel in a prime location and we will definately stay here again and recommend very highly.
Thank you, Colin and Sue, for making our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: All rooms good but room 9 has brilliant view of the Tower.

We were happy to read that you were pleased with your accommodation and that you enjoyed your three night stay with us.
As you said the room which you had selected has a really good view of the tower especially at night when lit.
In addition to that a large heart shape has been added to the front of the tower which also lights up and adds to the attraction.
Finally, It has been our pleasure looking after you both and look forward to your return visit.

Kind Regard,
colin and sue.

Just got back from a weekend at The Laurels and we have had a fantastic time. We were pleasantly suprised to find that everything in the previous comments was true! The hotel was spotlessly clean and our en-suite room was lovely and very comfortable with some really nice little touches that made you feel as though you were staying in a 5 star hotel! Colin and Sue were both so welcoming that as soon as we got there we felt at home. They could advise us on nice places to eat, good places to check out etc and always took an interest in what we had been doing whilst out and about. The breakfast was healthier than the usual fry up and delicious, nothing was too much trouble and more tea/coffee and toast was always on offer! So glad that we have found this top class B&B, definitely won't need to look anywhere else next time! We would reccommend The Laurels to anyone.

Thank you Colin and Sue for a fantastic weekend!! We hope to see you again in the New Year!

I stayed at the laurels with my fiancée and had a great time. The hosts as mentioned before are first class and deserve all the credit they get.

They have a warm b n b and their breakfasts were top class as a treat because I don't usually eat fry ups but these were fantastic.

I would recommend this b n b to anyone visiting Blackpool as its nice n quiet away from the crowds on the main strip.

I will be back and I look forward to doing so. Thanks colin and sue.

Thank you Sue and Colin for making my birthday and our anniversary an enjoyable stay. The room was very clean and more than adequate. The breakfast was more than enough and very tasty. We wont need to look any further for somewhere to stay again. See you again soon.

Well what can we say on entering your room it was more like a card shop ! birthdays , anniversaries ! we thought we could save some money here !
By the time we had read all the cards (which we did'nt only some ) we were well behind schedule and as if that were'nt bad enough when making the bed the duvet blew the cards all over the place and spent even more time re-arringing them back onto the bedside cabinet, even more precious time lost.
We thought it might be easier to bill you for all the time wasting, but on the other hand you were our guests and have decided to go easy on you.
If you do decide to come again please don't come on your anniversary or birthday ! ha ha ha.
Please be advised that a good sense of humour would help when reading this and not to be taken seriously, all said we are gald you both had a good weekend, as did we.

Kind Regards,
Colin and Sue.
