This b&b has to be one of the best I have ever stayed in, the owners are such friendly people and make you feel at home. Great value for money. We stayed in room 1 which has a small double bed and a single and en-suite. Was a bit cramped for the 2 of us but nothing to complain about. Breakfast was amazing, well worth the money and everything cooked perfectly and good quality products used. Close to the seafront, was about a 5 minute walk and local to all attractions i.e Blackpool Tower, Sea Life & Madame Tussaud's. Will be returning to the Franklyn next time we return to Blackpool.

Room Tip: Room 1 is fine for a family or 3 people but a little cramped for a couple. Bed pushed right against...

Family of 4 stayed for 2 nights. Free (limited) parking. Arrived earlier in the day than expected, was no problem. We were able to leave the car parked after checking out so we could make the most of the last couple of hours in Blackpool. Stayed in a family room with en suite, a double bed and a bunk bed with a double and single (so can sleep 5). Room was clean. Breakfast coked to order plus cereals/tea/coffee etc. Breakfast was delicious. Service/hospitality was excellent. Evening meal available on request. There is a small bar and prices are very reasonable. B & B was chosen as was very close to Merlin attractions (we are pass holders), only a 5/10 minute walk. Co op round the corner, various kebab/fish chip shops close by. Walls were a little thin and there was a fan that came on in the bathroom when you turn the light on but these were just tiny issues - just being picky now! A fab experience. Would stay here again and would reccommend to anyone. Thank you. Mr & Mrs Stirton

Room Tip: Choose a room with an en suite

We have just stayed at this very friendly hotel, it is in prime location close to the Tower and all local amenities. The hotel itself is high in standards of cleanliness, the hotel owners Ian and Karen are very friendly, very down to earth and the breakfasts are lovely presented and very filling. I can not fault this hotel in any way, and I will certainly be looking forward to booking my next stay with them. All the best and look forward to seeing you again from lin and steve Lloyd who stayed in room 1

Many thanks for your comments.
Sorry about the small bar area but we are just a B & B with only 8 rooms.
We hope it does not put you off staying with again in the future.

Stayed 8th - 10th April. Room was immaculate, comfortable and well equipped. Breakfast was tasty. Ian went above and beyond the role of the hotelier. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Blackpool, very we'll situated, in walking distance to main attractions. We had a fabulous time and can't thank Ian enough for all his assistance!
