“A lonely gem”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Great little guest house in a town full of cheap and frankly-a-little-nasty accommodation. Breakfast was fantastic and the owner/manager really went out of her way to accommodate our whims. The only reason why I'm not giving this a 5 star is because of the small window, but otherwise I cannot fault this guesthouse in any way. Great stay.

Hi

Thank you for your review.
If I could change anything in my guest house it would be that window!! :))
I'm glad to hear you enjoyed everything else.

Kind regards

Well, this may well be the guest house that gets us returning to Blackpool, lets be honest for the more mature couple we dont want a £15 rooms and a hotel full of stgs and hens which has put us off previously visiting Blackpool, however got to say this place was exactly up to the high standards we expect., OK its dearer than your average b and b bu then again its not average, we would rather go to a few quality places than lots of dross
It has been totallly refurbished to a high standard and no expense has been spared, down to every fitting, light, floorboard , window, its all to a very high standard. and no chintz
We hate places that cut quality , tey don,t realise the false econom of doing so, ursula has got i right, thetoels were of good quality and of a good size to get around my middle aged spread, also the refreshemnts and biscuits were of good quality and all the furniture matched , it was obvious great thought had went into the whole project.
We have stayed at well over a hundred guest houses and Breakfast was up there with the best,
Once again ursula has chosen quality, none of that smart price bacon with all that white gunge or cheap supermarket sausage like a lot of bed and breakfast places, you know who you are and should hang your heads in shame, everything about the breakfast was top notch, the ambiance, the room, the choice,.They have taken a calculated risk in not allowing stags/ hens or young children but it has paid off and they are probably tapping into a market not many are catering for in Backpool (although the edenfield does the same ) so in summary if you want a place thats high quality, a landlady that is on top of her game when it comes to hospitality, try here.OH nearly forgot Bar is amazing , it was like a chill ot lounge , really tasteful, I coud happily sit here all night and get pleasantly "£$%%&*, and not a radgee in sight,
And the music was chilled too . all complimented with the oringinal signage from the hacienda, yes that hacienda!! NEGATIVES ??? Trying hard here, even the bread used at brekkie was high class, what can I get her on??? DAMN nothing!!! everything perfect

Room Tip: ssshh dont tell every one but a classic little bistro in stannes called olivers were you bring your...

We have stayed in Blackpool before but we could not stay at the same B&B so thought we would try this one. It was lovely, the rooms are of a good size and very comfortable, together with a decent bathroom. Will definitely return when in Blackpool again.

I loved the bar area, very chic. Breakfast, well you couldn't ask for anything better. Would recommend.

When I think of B&B I don't have the best thoughts, however this one exceeded my expectations greatly!

There's an instant welcoming feeling by the host as you walk and and its presented beautifully.

I was told I had the smaller room which dampened my spirits but they were immediately lifted when I walked in. It's of decent size and again very well presented. Crisp white sheets and a decent tv, hair dryer and straighteners (result!) and the bathroom come wet-room... well If the bed wasn't so comfortable I'd have slept in the shower.

When we returned after an evening out at dinner I was surprised to see a 'secret' bar downstairs with a decent selection of spirits, whiskeys so on, and comfortable seating area.

Breakfast in the morning was lovely, a wide range of dishes from what we experienced were of very high standards.

I cannot sing The Redstone's Praises loud enough, and I will certainly be going back there when I return to Blackpool!

Thank you ursula

My second visit to The Redstone. my recent stay was a working holiday the location is central and very close to the main tram and bus service which suited my client as they have limited mobility.
we had a fabulous welcome our room was very comfortable lots of space ... Very high quality drinks and sundries available for free and always replenished each day for our convenience.
A well managed family business amazing hospitality.. The most amazing choice of breakfast absolutely spoilt for choice and the highest quality of fresh produce used at all times. Nothing was too much trouble and Hotelier even went out of her way to but me fresh grapefruits upon my request.
My client throughly enjoyed herself and her family visited they were also met with great hospitality and are even considering returning for a stay themselves and a treat for there son and daughter-in-law they were that impressed. Overall highly recommended hotel ..

Just returned from two nights at The Redstone. Have to agree with all the other excellent reviews and would find it impossible to find fault. The whole building has been refurbished to a high standard. The welcome we received was very friendly and the breakfast was excellent both mornings. What more could you ask for? Would definitely recommend and return.

My husband and I have just returned from a weekend in Blackpool and stayed at The Redstone. The main reason for going to Blackpool was to see Simple Minds in concert and we decided to make a weekend of it. For those not familiar with Simple Minds the Glittering Prize reference is to one of their early hits - and The Redstone is, indeed, a glittering prize! What a lovely place! The rooms and public areas are fantastic and the service second to none! Ursula is such a lovely, welcoming host and it really is a credit to her that The Redstone gets the 5* reviews it deserves! We can't wait until our next visit, which will be in the not too distant future (as long as we can get a room as The Redstone is always, deservedly, busy!)
