This is a wonderful small and personal hotel. Run by Ian and Graham it is spotlessly clean, each room is different and beautifully decorated, the bed and pillows very comfortable. The owners are very welcoming and they and their staff are very helpful, making for a lovely atmosphere. Breakfast is exceptional. I would thoroughly recommend, and if I ever go back to Blackpool would most certainly stay again.

My partner and i have just arrived home after a weekend in this fabulous Hotel.
What a wonderful experience it was.
We managed to get the last room in this hotel and glad we did.
Graham and Ian were most welcoming from the start, Breakfast was delicious, on the Sunday we had lunch which was enormous and very reasonable.
Special mention to Philip ( the Barman), what a treasure, he made us feel so at home.
So next time we go to Blackpool We will not book anywhere else, we will go straight to Raffles.
Thanks again to all , Crawford and Ann wish you well. xx

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent

Our first (but by no means last) stay at Raffles Hotel. This is an absolutely fabulous hotel ideally located on Hornby Road - a mere 5 minute walk to the promenade and shops. Our accommodation was without a doubt the best we had ever encountered during all our trips to Blackpool - such a shame that we had not stayed here before! A lovely breakfast set us up and indeed kept us going for most of the day, likewise it was relaxing to enjoy a couple of drinks in the lounge before turning in for the night. The high level of cleanliness within the hotel itself is unbelievable - some establishments we have used previously would do well to learn from Raffles Hotel. Above all and probably most importantly the staff are without a doubt friendly and helpful which makes your stay just that bit more enjoyable.

Keep up the high standards!
