Lawrence House is a wonderful place to be Wayne and Peter are two of the most lovely genuine hosts. They could not do enough to make our stay a more relaxed and enjoyable one. Attention to detail was key with our needs met at every level from the warm welcome to the final wave goodbye from the doorstep. We stayed in the Sandiacre suite which was at the top of the building a beautiful room with ample hanging room and space to relax. The breackfast was delicious hot and served at a decent time. We had a lovely time with Wayne and Peter in their friendly bar area and spent time with the other guests before heading out into Blackpool. Our hosts local knowledge was really helpful. Situated close to he North peir and to lots of bars and eating places. Thank you Wayne and Peter for making our weekend even more special. We will definately be back to spend time with you in the summer time. I would recommend Lawrence house to any of my friends as a fabulous fun place to stay.

We have just returned from a weekend stay at this lovely guest house, I wanted a special break away to celebrate a 40th birthday with my partner.
Read the reviews on line before booking and thought it sounded too good to be true, well the reviews were indeed justified. We decided to pay the little extra to stay in one of the suites
(Aspley) and found it to be worth every penny,beautifully decorated,spotlessly clean,designer bed linen and a bottle of sparkling wine on ice.
Both Peter and Wayne the owners made us welcome from the moment we arrived until waving us off on leaving, the food both breakfast and evening meals were freshly cooked and tasted delicious. The hotel was ideally located for us being in the heart of the gay quarter but managing to retain a quiter feel away from the main roads.We have stayed in many hotels some of which we would never return to however the Lawrence House Hotel is definately one we shall be returning to.
Thanks again Peter and Wayne for a really great weekend in your lovely hotel,

Room Tip: worth paying the little extra to stay in one of the 2 suites on offer

Great location, excellent staff and well furnished room. Hard to beat for a Blackpool B&B. Breakfast was lovely, and there were many finishing touches which made it special.

Clean, friendly, quiet, great location near to the Northern Pier. Within walking distance of many pubs/clubs, but the location down a side street makes it very quiet and I got an undisturbed sleep. I love the that breakfast is served from until 10.30am - no need to get up at 8.30 on a weekend morning to ensure you get something to eat, come down at a more leisurely time. Bravo! I had salmon and scrambled eggs one morning which was delicious. An ample portion that set me up for the day.

When I arrived I grabbed a late lunch of home made soup which was very tasty and warming.

Peter and Wayne helped me find directions to places I wanted to visit, rang a taxi so I could get to the airport, and were always approachable. Thank you for having a B&B that's a pleasure to stay in.

A great hotel worth four stars. Peter & Wayne give great customer service, cook great food and are lovely unassuming hosts. The accommodation is clean and well maintained. Good location just 5 mins walk to the town and a couple to the sea front. Would stay again. Cheers guys!

We had a fantastic 3 nights at the Lawrence House Hotel!

In the words of Mary Poppins, 'Practically perfect in every way!'

From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Wayne, until our departure, we had a wonderful experience that we would definitely like to repeat and will recommend to family and friends visiting Blackpool. The hotel has recently been refurbished to very high standards, The room and en suite bathroom were spotless and decorated to a high standard. A bottle of bubbly in the room; chocolates on the pillow; great selection on the host tray; excellent pillows on a comfortable bed; soft towels in the bathroom and spotlessly clean carpet made this a really enjoyable stay in Blackpool!

Breakfast is excellent, and the 'House Special scrambled' eggs are to die for. The sausage that is served with the FULL English breakfast is a mouthful and very succulent. Wayne and Peter offer a good selection of evening meals - all home cooked and offer excellent value.

(We were further surprised by how much investment has been ploughed into Blackpool since our last visit 4 years ago! The illuminations were fantastic, and once the Tower's new lights are completed it will really be spectacular and worth another visit!! Funny Girls is also a 'must'!)

Peter and Wayne were wonderful hosts, showed interest in us as guests and made sure our expectations were met and exceeded.

Thanks for a wonderful stay, Wayne and Peter! We will definitely return to Lawrence House Hotel on our next visit to Blackpool!
