“Total luxury, didn't expect a hotel in blackpool to be this good.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2012 via mobile

I booked this hotel due to reading previous reviews.
We arrived in blackpool before booking in time, so we walked around for a bit, but we got a phone call from the hotel telling us our room was ready - 2 hours early :)
We arrived at the hotel, we were offered tea/coffee, booked in quick and showed our room, this (room 8) was the biggest and best room we've ever stayed in, total luxury, really comfy bed, high quality covers/duvets, fixtures and fittings and a 50" flat screen tv on the wall, you can lay in bed and easily watch it. My partner liked the dressing table with hair dryer and hair straightners, and there is a safe in the room which is good.
The en-suite is huge, fully tiled and again has luxury fittings. The shower is good and gets warm quick. There are loads of high quality towels and the complimentary soaps are nice.
Breakfast - there are 2 sitting times which is an ace idea, not everyone wants to be up and eating at 8:30 am, the dining room is really nice, there is a piano and a grandfather clock in there. The room is nice, clean and spacious so your not eating right next to strangers, the food is nice and cooked perfect, you can see care is taken over each plate.

Check out - unlike most other hotels that need you out by 10am, this hotel let's you stay until 11am, this late checkout time along with the late breakfast option makes the morning of checkout a nice slow process, rather than having to rush everything.

If your looking for a high end, clean luxury hotel - book this one. 10/10.

I'm still actually in the Redstone, just about to leave for home. If we didn't have a deadline to be home for, we'd have stayed another night.

I think first impressions are very important, I make my mind up about a place very quickly. From the very warm welcome, to the little things like a coffee (and yummy cake) while waiting for our room to he ready, (we arrived well before check in time, but it was no problem) it was a fantastic stay. The staff were all so friendly and cheery, I just loved the place in the first five minutes.

The rooms are freshly decorated, roomy, and very luxurious, better than you find in many big city hotels. A must for me is my own hair dryer, as hotel ones are notoriously absent or rubbish, but no need here, there's an excellent one right next to the straighteners on the dressing
table.

As we had just spent a week on a narrow boat, I had particularly chosen a place which appeared to be spacious and had a decent shower, again, I was not disappointed.

Unfortunately we missed the owners, they were on holiday, but their daughter and sister were very helpful and accommodating, I'm sure we'll meet them next time!

Lastly I'd like to say, try the smoked salmon soufflé omelette, you'll never regret it!!!!

Can't recommend this place highly enough, you've got to try it for yourself!!!

A pearl in the midst of run of the mill Blackpool B&B's. from the moment you step through the glass front door underneath the Chandelier you feel that this is something special and it didn't disappoint. The bedroom had gorgeous down pillows and duvet with quality bed linen. There was more than adequate storage space and the flat screen tv was a pleasure along with the wifi connection. The bathroom was luxurious with a large walk in shower, fluffy robes and along with the hair drier hair straighteners were also provided. The cellar bar was a welcome oasis with its subdued lighting, comfortable seating and a good range of drinks at reasonable prices. Breakfast was served in a graceful room the focal point of which was a Grand Piano and the range and quality of the food on offer certainly justify the 5 star rating. This is one guest house I would certainly return to

We have just returned from 1 night stay in this hidden jem in Blackpool. I have to say I was a bit sceptical - 'a 5* hotel in Blackpool?!' I was completely bowled over by this hotel, from walking in on Monday, being greeted by a gorgeous little ball of fluff (Ursula's dog!!), to walking out yesterday morning, everything was perfect, coffee and cake on arrival, everything in the spotless room that you could ask for (including robe and slippers). the house is extremely well-maintained. The breakfast was to die for, I just had fruit and a smoothie (mmmmm!!), my husband ordered quite a few items for breakfast but then changed his mind at the last minute, but it wasn't a problem. Ursula and her collegues are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We will definately stay again and will definately be recommending the hotel to others. Thanks you Ursula for a lovely stay.

we stayed at the Redstone just for one night in the sat of Sep.we only stayed for one night but wish we could have stayed for longer.This guest house is stylish,modern,friendly extreamly compy,and is one of the best places ive ever stayed in,you certainly wouldnt expect to find it in Blackpool!!.The room wa light and airy,with lovely toiletries,robes,slippers,tea coffee chocolate,buiscuits,bottled water,the most compy bed ive ever slept in! and a lovely big wetroom.the furniture was classy and the bed lien soft.breakfast was amazing,fresh strawberries,pinapple,blueberries,raspberries,muffins,cheeses,yogurts,fruit juice,nuts,cereals,and that was before the choice of salmon,scrammbled eggs,fryed breakfast,oganic porrage,smootie,french toast with maple syrup,and crispy bacon,kippers,fresh coffee,and fresh cut crusty toast......no one could say the breakfast wasnt the best!.theres a lovely small funky bar downstairs,and a welcoming reception.The guesthouse is placed in a convinient place,inbetween the tower,and the pleasure beach,and the owner reccomended a good indian to us,if out want something other than fish and chips.the ONLY fault,if you can call it one,more of a tiny niggle really,was that our bed ,room 5,was a style containing quite square feet at the bottom ,and was positioned on such a way that , stubbed my toe on it 5 times,everytime i went to the bathroom.....and my husband actually took a big chunk out of his shin doing it!!! maybe were just clumsy,but both of us??? maybe the furniture could be moved around a bit???i wouls love to return and spend a lot more time in the room,as we didint this time.all in all,the owner has spent a lot of time and effort making this place "special",we had the last room for that wkend,and were very very lucky to get it.wonderful hidden little gem,somewhere you would never expect to find it ,thank you x

What a beautiful hotel - our room was magnificent with lots of extra touches; robes, slippers, bottled water. The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was marvellous with fresh fruit, berries and juice and choice of cooked dishes - the full English was lovely and good quality ingredients. This hotel is a gem!!

After searching for a top quality guesthouse in Blackpool, we certainly found it in the Redstone. The property is finished beautifully, all rooms look immaculate and the bedrooms were well fitted out. The beds were very comfortable and all creature comforts are provided. The hosts were very welcoming and met us with a smile from the moment of arrival, through to serving in the bar in the evening, through to breakfast the next morning.

Location is perfect, 2 minutes from the beach at the quieter end of Blackpool - South Beach.

As mentioned, there is a bar in this guesthouse, a very clever design of the basement, very stylish. This meant a wonderful end to our evening after having been out for dinner nearby.

The breakfast the next day (full english) was delicious and the hot tea kept on coming.

A truly wonderful guesthouse, one which I would highly recommend and will certainly be visiting again!!

Room Tip: All rooms are set up really well
