Another amazing weekend in Blackpool all thanks to Kim & Hilary. We cannot thank you enough for making our stay so special. You provide a 1st class service with a warm & friendly atmosphere, great food and beautifully decorated rooms.
Would definately recommend By The Seaside Hotel to anyone visiting Blackpool! See you next year guys from The Latners xxx

We stayed at By the Seaside for the weekend it was exactly what we needed. It was central, the owners Hilary and Kim were very friendly and helpful. The room was small but had everything we needed in it. The breakfast was great with a lot of choice from cereal, fresh fruit, cold meats, toast and a great menu for cooked items. Would definitely recommend it.

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.
