We stayed four nights and enjoyed them all,rooms were well decorated and very clean.
Hilary and Kim as hosts are hard to beat and the breakfasts cooked to perfection.
The only downside was we had to leave.

As soon as we arrived kim and hillary were there to welcome us into there home, the atmosphere was so warm and welcoming ( even when england didnt win the first game or crouch didnt score the final goal!! Sorry kim lol.) The rooms were very clean, and the breakfast was really nice with plenty of choice to start you off for the day. Kim and Hillary are a lovely couple and we will definately be returning for many more weekends away staying at the clovelly hotel. See you both soon love Louise, Michael and Callum xxxx

this hotel has a very high standard and is the best we have stayed at
Hilery and Kim make you so welcome and your stay enjoyable
everything about this hotel is 1st rate(4* this should be 5*)
the breakfast had everything you could ask for and plentiful
NOTHING was to much trouble for Hilery and Kim and were very good company in the evening in the bar , which was well stocked .the rooms were very clean and well decorated as was the whole hotel. We will be using again and cant wait, so look out Kim , Cameron is already practising new magic tricks.
Thank you for making our stay special

Just returned home from a 2 night stay (wished it had been longer). From the moment we walked into the Clovelly this place felt special. Hilary and Kim were so welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is spotlessly clean and our room was beautifully decorated as was the hotel itself with lots of special touches. We have stayed in many hotels in Blackpool but this is by far the best. Thankyou to you both and this will definately be our first choice from now on.

Only had 1 night, but I can honestly say it was brilliant. Hilary and Kim are definetely Mine Hosts. they cannot do enough for you , our room is one of the best we have ever stayed in the decor is first class and they have thought of everything that you will need. The breakfast was 1st class whatever you want is no trouble for them. I would just like to thank them so much for their thoughtfulness and kindness to us . This is the only Hotel we will be staying in Blackpool. So thanks again to you both lol Luv Lynn and Ian xxxxxx

Stayed in the Clovelly Hotel and was blown away by everything about the hotel. The rooms are decorated superbly and extremely clean. There ars subtle little touches which just add to the delight of the stay. The hosts are very friendly and the bar prices extremely reasonable. I have stayed many many times in Blackpool and can quite honestly say the breakfast in the Clovelly is second to none. All in all extremely great value for money try it once and you will never stay anyehere else.

Hi Richardburdett
Thank you for the positive review,it's not very often men notice the small touches about the rooms, and seeing you have been to Blackpool many many times it's nice to know were doing something right!. Over the 9yrs we have been here we have built up the business on a word of mouth reputation and we have regular guests that return year after year, so a very special thank you for that, we hope you become a regular guest to the Clovelly Hilary xx
