“AMAZING!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2012

Me & my boyfriend are just back from staying at 'by the seaside' hotel in blackpool. It was really amazing! As soon as we walked into the hotel we were gave a warm welcome and made to feel right at home. We went up to the room and were delighted when we walked in, it was so modern and stylish! We made the room our own and we were really sad to leave. We got a delicious breakfast every morning which set us up for the day! Their was plenty to choose from and it was made to the highest standard. At night we would sit in the bar after a long day and have a few drinks and Hillary & Kim were so lovley, they sat and spoke to us and we had a laugh, they are a really nice couple:) Also the hotel was spotless and the rooms were cleaned everyday if needed. The bed was so comfy we had a great sleep everynight. I highly reccommend by the seaside i could not fault them one bit! We will definitley be going back the next time we visit blackpool. Hopefully we can stay a bit longer as it was so good! Best trip away i have had in years, Perfect for couples.

Room Tip: For couples i would reccommend room 11, it was suited perfect for us we loved it! Really cosy, clean...

Had a lovely stay at By the Seaside, our room (Room 3) although on the small side for 3 people was very nicely decorated and the bed was extremely comfy. Breakfast was very nice with plenty to choose from, and we were made to feel very welcome by Hilary and Kim. All in all By the Seaside is a very good B&B which I would recommend to all.

Hi Smlygry thank you for taking the time to write this review and staying with us we hope you had a good journey home.
Firstly I can see that you were not completely satisfied with the size of your room all I can say is that we are terraced Guest Houses and meet with Visit Britain 4* requirements we are not Large hotels if you had booked with a hotel you would have paid at least another £100.00 more.
We would like to thank you for saying you would reccommend us that's really nice to know Hilary x

Having stayed here for three days with my wife, I totally loved it and enjoyed. I would summarise my review as follows
1. Hospitality,the couple is very very welcoming and made us feel at home and loved it.
2. Cleanliness,this is absolutely wonderful and spotless, bedrooms, dinning/lounge and every part of the hotel.
Rooms are warm, well designed, organised and has everything that you may find from any bigger hotel in the world for those who have travelled more.
3.Breakfast, very delicious and prompt, served with a smile and loads of it! We couldn't have another meal after breakfast cos it was plenty.
In summary, the value of money I paid, the service given, I think we paid too little for the great service we received! I highly recommend anyone coming to Blackpool to first check with this hotel.

It was so unfortunate that we couldn't get an available room for the remaining days of our holidays however next time if we are to come to back we shall try and get rooms with this hotel!

Thanks once more.

Room Tip: Budget double is cosy so if you want extra space go for standard double.

"There are more hotel beds in Blackpool than in the whole of Portugal" we were informed on our trip up the Tower. Well if warm welcome, great location, spotless rooms and lovely breakfasts are high on your wish list then book into By The Seaside.

We spent a lovely weekend there (July 6 - 10) and our hosts Kim and Hilary were extremely helpful throughout with expert advice on resort attractions. Perfectly placed on a pretty side street between Centre Pier and Pleasureland this is a great base for exploring - especially once you've chosen from the ample breakfast choice including an epic full English.

Everything you need is to be found in a spotless bedroom and the bar down stairs is a great place to start your evening.

When we go back to Blackpool this will be our hotel again.

Room Tip: We were in room 2 and it was very spacious.

We stayed for 2 nights on the 22nd and 23rd June, We were very much welcomed into the hotel and were given our room promptly. The room was absolutely gorgeous and was really cosy had nice little touches also! The room had everything we needed in there including tea, coffee and sugar and the lovely touch of bottled water. Not one bad thing I can say, Hosts were very friendly and always gave us good recommendations for places to eat and information about transport. Really good weekend and made it 110% having a lovely place to sleep. Will definitely return!
