“By far the best hotel I have visited in Blackpool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2010

Excellent service, great modern seaside decor and immaculate clean.
The cooked breakfast was great with plenty of extra toast!

Excellent location less than 10 mins walk to the train station and 5 minutes to the gay area.
Quiet backstreet location so had a great sleep.

This is probably the cleanest, friendliest most welcoming B&B I've ever stayed in and I have been visiting Blackpool for approximately 20 years. I would highly recommend it and will certainly be returning with friends often. No more searching for the best,
I think I've found it! Well done guys keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Lawrence House Blackpool, what a lovely Guest House! This place is spottlessly clean and the decor is fresh and done to a really good standard. Worthy of four stars in my view. As for the breakfast, we couldn't fault it. Also had an evening meal during our stay, everything was just perfect and value for money in the ambient surroundings of the lovely dining room. Location wise this place is just perfect as it close to the beach, close to town centre and nightlife, but on a nice quite street one back from the Promenade. Peter and Wayne made us so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them, making our short break in Blackpool a lovely one.

This was my second visit to Lawrence house, and it wont be the last. After staying in some rather less desirable B&B's in Blackpool for gay people, I am glad to have found this one. The proprieters are excellent hosts and very down to earth. The hotel is in a good location, very clean and presentable, and the breakfast is just fabulous. Excellent room rates. Recommed this place to anyone.

ive stayed in a lot of hotels in blackpool from £25 to £200 a night i can say without any reserve this IS the best hotel in blackpool, please do not be put off if your a straight couple thinking this is a gay hotel only, it isn't peter and wayne make all there guests more than welcome and some, after taking almost every room over the weekend with all my staff not one of them had anything other than praise for this hotel and it's staff, put simply if you want one of the best hotels in blackpool this is it don't bother looking anywhere else unless it's booked up !!!!!!!

Just returned from a couple of nights in Blackpool and stayed at the wonderful Lawrence House for the first time. We are fairly frequent visitors to Blackpool and have always stayed in different hotels because most of them range from downright poor to absolutely indifferent! However, having spotted Lawrence House with its distinctive yellow front on our last trip, we decided to give it a go this weekend. Quite simply the best small hotel we've ever had the pleasure of staying at. From the moment you enter the spotlessly clean, fresh smelling (not the usual stale smoke and fried food waft) warm and cosy little hotel, you will feel at home. The owners Peter and Wayne (and friend Kevin) are fantastic hosts and really take time to make you feel welcome and relaxed. Their bright, friendly manner and eagerness to please is really refreshing. The breakfast is great too, using fresh, quality ingredients and served in an efficient, yet unhurried manner. The rooms are comfortable and scrupulously clean - these guys really are fastidious. The location is great, yet despite its proximity to the nightlife, it is really peaceful and quiet. We cannot recommend this place highly enough - and heaven knows how fussy we are!!!
