Have been staying at this hotel every year for about 8yrs, and wouldn't go anywhere else now. Hilary and Kym are such nice people and nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast is the best in Blackpool according to my husband. Whole hotel is so clean and well decorated and every year we visit some-where else has been decorated. Will definately be back and would recommend this hotel to any-one thinking of visiting Blackpool.

Room Tip: All rooms are decorated to a high standard and comfortable. Really can't complain about it bein...

Hi,

We have just returend from 2 nights at By The Seaside and again we were not disappointed. We love the place, and will be back again.

The breakfast is, without doubt the best I have had at any of the places i have stayed whilst in Blackpool. The rooms are very clean and always made to a high standard.

The "new" touch for us this time was that there was Tunnocks Tea cakes in the room, which didn`t last very long!!!

It`s the small touches and attention to detail that make the difference between an average Bed and Breakfast and an excellent one like By The Seaside.

David

I, my partner and my 3 year old spent a night here last weekend. I've stayed at many of the b&bs on st chads road blackpool - the location of the road is fantastic- 10 mins walk 1 way to the pleasure beach and 10 mins walk the other to the tower! This time we decided on by the seaside as it was recommended by another b&b owner on the stret that was full.
The owners are lovely- extramly helpful and welcoming. We arrived at lunch time(2 hours b4 normal check in time) this wasn't a problem-the owner quickly prepared our room and with in 5 mins we were in!! We had a family room-double and a single which was small but adequate!! The beds were very comfy and I especially like the bed linnen they used! My only gripe was the heat- I know it was 20degs outside but the room never cooled down- even at night and when the owner kindly got me a fan! As the windows don't open very much I too agree with the other review- it could do with some air con! But nether the less a lovely little b&b- great people, fab location and fab breakfast!!!recomended as the family room was £60!!! Bargin! Ta guys

Thank you moo01 for writing this review,firstly I must correct the price, you paid £65.00 for the family room, people would be phoning saying they saw it on TA .
As I have previously written our family room will now be extended at the end of the season, and will reflect a price according to size.
It was an exceptionally hot night the window does extend further, but due to children being in the room it has a safety catch on.
We hope to see you again and thank you for the review. Hilary x

Just back from a two night stay at this hotel. What a lovely find will definitely be going back. Kym and Hilary were great and made us very welcome. Spotless rooms and breakfast was perfect with a great choice. Lovely bar and seating area outside . Thankyou for a great weekend. Elma ,Derek, Janice and Tommy.
