De-Lovely
Ranked #100 of 859 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2011

Where do I start with this review– from the moment you arrive Steve & Leigh make you feel extremely welcome and go that extra mile to make you feel totally at home.

A modern boutique hotel with very clean rooms, which are equipped with everything you need, cheap bar prices, wonderful cooked breakfast with yogurts, cereals & orange juice to help yourself to. On arrival our bags were taken to our rooms, as we sat in the bar relaxing with a drink.
We went with a mixed group of friends and we all agreed that Steve and Leigh made us feel like long lost friends, rather than paying guests.

Other hotels/BB in Blackpool could learn a lot from them!

The De-Lovely hotel is on Lord Street and only a short walk to bars and clubs and the sea front and North Pier.
So whether you are looking for a quite weekend exploring Blackpool or spending your weekend partying, the De-Lovely can accommodate both.

Our group stayed here 2 nights on 7th & 8th Oct and on our last night we got ready to head out by having a few drinks in the hotel bar first.
We ended up spending most of our night in the bar, chatting with Steve, Leigh and other guests, was such a great night that we didn't want to leave.
Once we did head out, we did so with a few of the other guests and had a fun and memorable last night.

What a fabulous weekend we had and all I can say is that you cannot go wrong with this hotel, a warm friendly atmosphere with the best hosts you could ask for.

This may have been our first stay at the De-Lovely Hotel, but will definitely not be our last

Thanks again to Steve and Leigh for a wonderful weekend and we will be visiting again! xx

Room Tip: Our group booked 3 double rooms and all were clean and well equipped.

Well what can i say, i go to blackpool the first weekend in october every year for my birthday with family and friends to go out into blackpool day and night but this is the first time i have wanted to stay at the hotel. Steve and Leigh were great from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. They make such an effort with you that i left feeling i had been friends with them for years. The customer service is second to none. You would not find any better anywhere. Great rooms, great breakfast, great people, great hotel. I will be back year after year with my friends and family to celebrate my birthday. Rich

We spent the weekend here last week and had an amazing time! From the word go, the owners, Steven and Lee, couldn't have done anything more to make sure our stay was one we wouldn't forget. We were welcomed before getting to the door, our bags were taken and we were sat down and settled with a complementary hot drink within minutes. It was such a refreshing change to stay in a guest house with 4 or 5 star hotel standards. The customer service was second- to-none, the room was unique, clean and welcoming and the breakfast was fab! Excellent service at the bar aswell with drinks being brought to our table etc. Nothing was too much trouble for Steven and Lee in going the extra mile and we would not hesitate in re-booking. Thank you both for a De- lovely weekend!

David and Will.

Room Tip: Have a look at their website to see what you can choose from! They all look fab!

With so many BnB's and hotels to choose from ,youd be forgiven if you felt a little confused about booking your holiday in Blackpool! But if you choose De-Lovely you will recieve very warm and friendly service and stay. The minute we arrived and greeted by Steven and Leigh we were made to feel very welcome, after a long and stressfull train journey our bags were taken up to our room and we sat and had coffee with them,They gave us a handmade map of all the good places to eat, drink and party which came in handy throughout the week.
The room that we stayed in was gorgeous with lovely decor, especially the handmade towel swan waiting for us one evening! :)
The choice of breakfasts was very good and the Full english was really yummy, you feel like you are being spoiled every morning!
The location is excellent as its only a short walk away from the beach,attractions,shops,pubs and resturants.
All in all we both really enjoyed ourselves at De-Lovely, and loved all the personal touches that Steve and Leigh had put into the BnB to make our holiday really unique.
We will definatley be comming again next year. x

My girlfriend and I were looking for somewhere smart, clean, modern and not too cheesy. De-Lovely was all of those and more.

The rooms were clean, bright, well laid out and equipped. Breakfast was a mix of cereals, fruit and both hot and cold drinks, along with a cracking full-English, cooked to order and at a sensible time!

Steve and Leigh were warm and welcoming hosts who couldn't do enough for us.

At £30 pp per night, De-Lovely was also fantastic value.

I can't recommend both guest house and the hosts highly enough.

Me and my other half were made to feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The decor is beautiful and the attention to detail is second to none. We enjoyed a well earned drink upon arrival whilst Steve and Leigh took our our bags to our room. When we asked for some advice about restaurants and local night life we were given a cool little map of gay friendly places and some excellent (and very local) restaurants. The location is excellent, situated in the heart of the gay village, funny girls and the flying handbag are a very short walk away. The breakfast was lovely and included homegrown tomatoes which I personally was very impressed by. The service was excellent aswell, whether at breakfast or the bar which was basically open as long as we were up to enjoy it. Me and the mrs totally felt as if we had made two great friends in Steve and Leigh by the time we were due to leave and we're already planning a trip back in Easter with my girlfriends nine year old daughter in tow. Would reccomend this guesthouse to anyone gay or straight heading to Blackpool in future.
