“Spot On”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

I have returned today from 3 nights at the South Lea, the hotel is very clean and homely Jan and Rick are very friendly Jan is a very good cook enjoyed all my meals, Little extras like biscuits on your drinks tray in your room and fresh milk in fridge on landing and snacks with a honesty box all make a difference. The hotel is in a very nice part of Blackpool in Gynn Square away from all the hustle but 2 mins away from tram and bus stops to take into centre of Blackpool Jan and Rick are very accommodating and go out of their way to make you feel at home and help you Jan gave me a lift to the train station to get my train home for which I am very grateful. I will be going to Blackpool again next year and will be booking the South Lea

We stayed just 1 night and we had a lovely stay. our 4yr old daughter felt very comfortable and very much like home that she asked why we couldn't live there. we didn't meet the landlord on our 1 night stay but Jan the landlady was really nice and welcoming we had a fab full english breakfat in the morning. We enjoyed it so much that we have already booked for next year's fireworks competition. We would recommend this hotel every time.
Thanks for a lovely stay

We've stayed at the South Lea in September, and we were really impressed. It has an excellent location, stone throw away of the promenade, overlooking this large square, and next door to a tram stop. The owners were amazing, really fun people to be with. Jan's breakfast was really tasty, and Rick's bar is a nice and cozy little place. Jan also helped us out a lot by assisting in deciding what attractions would be worth to visit. Can't fault it at all.

My husband, son & I stayed here on a recommendation from a friend - so glad we did.
Totally agreed with the other good reviews on here of the South Lea. Staying here made our 3 day break for us.
A modern, clean & comfortable hotel & room with excellent breakfast and evening meals. Then the extra touches like fresh milk, sweets, tissues and full sized shower gel in the room. My son really liked the pop and chocs with an honesty box for the late night munchies!
The hotel sits just off the quieter sea-front with a tram-stop very close (tip:.buy day-savers for the trams - great for popping up and down from Stargate to Fleetwood and gives your car & driver a rest).
Best of all, Jan & Rick are lovely hosts - a real pleasure to know them. We will definitely return here, hopefully with other family members. With love, Mo, Pete & Ryan x

Room Tip: Room 5 - lovely suite with excellent views.

We stayed at this hotel with our 3 children they was more than accommodating made us feel very welcome and even helped us in regards to getting to Blackpool Zoo. Room was excellent aswell as the food. In an ideal location right near the beach and loads of car parking space at the front. We will defiantly always use this hotel not a fault at all :)

Room Tip: family room was spacious and really comfy

This hotel is right by the beach, there is a tram station just around the corner and there is a large carpark across the street. The hotel itself has a cozy bar with a good selection of drinks, a pool table and the staff are helpful and friendly. My room was clean and comfortable, with a t.v. and a kettle for tea/coffee. It also had an excellent newly fitted en-suite. Heartily recommended.

Room Tip: The room at the front on the first floor looked amazing. (Room 5 I think.)

Took my girlfriend down to Blackpool for a few days because she hasn't been before and managed to get a last minute booking here. The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating. Much prefer B n B's to posh hotels because it does feel a bit more personal and honest. I managed to interact with the rest of the guests in the bar area and they were all lovely people...found it really hard to go on a night out because there is so much happening in the bar with the rest of the guests.
Overall the hotel was clean and immaculate with friendly and memorable people and i would recommend this to anyone hoping to get away for a few days.
