“Brilliant for Pleasure Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

We arrived really early at The Mercury as we were so excited for our day out. Anthony showed us to a car parking spot, took our bags and told us to go out and enjoy our day - so we did! Had a lovely stroll along the front and arrived at the Pleasure Beach quickly. When we got back to the hotel later that evening, Debs showed us to our room where our bags had already been placed for us. Breakfast the next day was lush, full english with extra toast :) Will definitely stay here next time we visit Blackpool!

Me and my partner stayed at the mercury last night and what a lovely stay it was! We were greated by Tyson the gentle giant who looks scary at first but is the complete opposite and knows exactly where he can and can't go (knows not to go in the kitchen/ eating area) debs and Anthony are such a lovely, friendly couple who welcomed us in straight away, showed us our room which was all fine, breakfast the next morning was lovely, no complaints at all! We are 100% going to stay here again as soon as we come back to Blackpool, well done for running such a fantastic b n b :)

We've just spent the weekend at The Mercury in Blackpool and can't wait until the next time we visit. A warm welcome awaits you, the ownes Anthony and Deborah are more than happy to tend to your every need nothing is too much trouble. Situated in a peaceful location between south and central piers it close to all Blackpool has to offer

The glam rock theme makes it an interesting place with some great memorabilia decorating the place.

The breakfast is freshly cooked and really tasty. There is a cosy bar with a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. The rooms are extremely clean with very comfortable beds along with tea and coffee making facilities.

Last but by no means least the beautiful dog known as Tyson, he's playful and loving and made our stay even more pleasurable. In fact the only bad thing about staying at The Mercury is when you have to leave. Can't wait to return. Mark & Nicky Forrest, Wolverhampton.

A wonderful welcome from Deborah and Anthony. Shown to our rooms, which were clean and comfortable. Down stairs for a drink at the bar before meeting friends in town. Perfectly placed between both piers and 100 yards to the beach. Great stay.

Stayed at the weekend with my boyfriend and we had a great time, loved it :-). Great location right in the middle of everything, spotless and spacious room, and made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived, especially by Tyson :-) Even played Queen in the bar for us while having a drink when we asked.. Definitely be returning! xx
