Stayed for two nights, the location of the hotel was great and had the bonus of a car park. The breakfast was good was plenty of choice available. The room had a sea view, though there was a stale/dampness smell outside and in our room. Clean towels in the bathroom however the bin in the bathroom had not been emptied since previous guests. There were several tears in the carpet which needed a clean. There were no castors on one side of the double bed, so you were lying on a slope. On leaving the hotel and checking we had all our belongings discovered the room had not been cleaned as there were items left below the bunk bed from previous guests, was very disappointed.

Stayed 3 nights..were wary of usual nitemare stories of manky b&bs.no worries here rooms and beds clean and comfy,excellent location right on the front close to pleasure beach and short walk to tower,off road parking was handy..Sammy is a great guy,good laugh and friendly,from our town it turned out,many return here annually and its easy to see why,we will too...the Hilton its not...but..i kinda prefer that ..if i was to list negatives i feel it would be picky and just naming things for the sake of it..so i wont.!!!..thumbs up from us..!!!

We booked this hotel for one night through a Groupon deal, for us & our granddaughter, the proprietors were very friendly and welcoming (sorry I've forgot your names)along with the hotel being located on the Prom it is the ideal place to stay and visit all the sights & sounds of Blackpool, we had a room on the top floor overlooking the sea which was very clean and comfy, the bar & lounge area was quite spacious which also looked out onto the prom, in the morning the breakfast was buffet style with as much freshly cooked bacon, sausage, egg etc etc as you wanted, we would definitely use this hotel again and gave recommended it to our friends who have booked 4 rooms in October, overall if your looking for a great place to stay then the South Beach has to be the place.

This was our first time together as a family going to blackpool..and we had a brilliant time!!the location of the hotel is exception really within walking distance of everything!! Parking for FREE which is also a big bonus! To be honest we were rarely in hotel for time we were there but everything seemed ok..our door lock broke and someone fixed it whilst we we out which was nice! The rooms are fairly basic but we didn't expect to much as we paid pennies really for what we got!! Only thing that annoyed me were the bloody seagulls waking us all up at 4 o clock AM!!! Ha

Stayed at South beach twice now and I've got to say Sam and ange are amazing,they really helped us out after a nightmare with Alfie's.
The rooms are basic but very clean and beds are comfortable nothings to much trouble they are really helpful the breakfast is lovely anything you need you will have.
Any questions they will answer if u want to know of good places to go they will tell you.im not intending on going to blackpool again in a hurry but if I do ill sure be booking in with south beach.
Just across the road from the beach and nothing is to far to walk to.
