“Why stay anywhere else!”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

Another fantastic stay at the manhattan. I am so pleased to have found somewhere in Blackpool I can return to time and time again. Breakfast is fantastic. Bar is well stocked, rooms are clean, comfortable and warm (especially after a walk along the promenade). 5 minute walk from the train station and low cost parking so however you arrive its not a long walk. Kevin and Ian are a fountain of knowledge so don't worry about asking them anything, whether it be restaurant recommendations to local nightlife, where to go where not to go etc and if they don't know the guys will go out of their way to find out. They always seem to have vouchers and discounts to local attractions so it is always worth checking with them before venturing out for the day. I can't recommend this place enough. Having stayed at other places in Blackpool both cheaper and more expensive hotels and B & Bs Manhattan really does tick all the boxes. Manhattan is well priced, friendly, smart, clean, warm, well situated and attention to detail is above and beyond what you would ever expect, what more could you ask for. I can guarantee once you stay here you won't stay anywhere else in Blackpool.

There are only three things I need to make me happy when staying away from home. Central location, a nice clean room and a decent breakfast. Staying at the Manhattan makes me very happy indeed. It is centrally located, spotlessly clean and I am pleased to report that the breakfast retains the "best I have ever had" rating I gave it last year! However, it is not these things alone that make staying here so nice, it's Ian and Kevin. The atmosphere is warm, friendly, comfortable and relaxed. Ian and Kevin obviously work hard to make their guests feel welcome and special but somehow manage to make it seem effortless. I don't stay at the Manhattan to visit Blackpool, I visit Blackpool to stay at the Manhattan. Needless to say, we'll be back. Thanks for a great weekend.

I stayed here about 2 weeks ago for one night and have to say that the owners, Ian and Kevin, do a first class job of running a hotel.
It was clean and tidy and the guys were very attentive and were always happy to help.
My room was clean, the beds comfortable and facilies good.
The hotel seems to have a good variety of rooms so it should be no problem finding one to suit.
The hotel is situated just a few minutes walk from the seafront area and all it's attractions so could not be better placed and the station is just around the corner, so not far to carry your bags.
All in all a very happy stay and I would certainly recommend.

What a great guest house, very clean, with a good sized room. Kevin and Ian were both brilliant, very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Excellent value, with a great breakfast waiting for you in the morning. Within easy reach of the main shopping area/Tower (Just a short 5-10min walk). Will definately recommend and will be returning in the future.
