5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

Our first visit to the hotel, was greeted with enthusiasm, very friendly people, rooms very clean and equipped with everything we could need. We stayed for bed and breakfast and the breakfast was excellent with special addons every day. Easy parking on site. Hotel was within easy reach of all of the beaches in Blackpool. Would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

I agree with all the excellent reviews given to this delightful place. My husband and I stayed here for a few days during the June Pensioners Conference 2013 and we loved the experience, particularly the cleanliness, easy parking, tasty breakfasts and long evening drinks in the exceptionally well equipped bar. Don' t forget that there is self accommodation too and these areas are worth asking to view as the design and decor are of an exceptionally high standard. We are already looking forward to next year's conference and the excuse to enjoy a repeat stay, in the hands of some delightful owners and their employees.
Thank you!

Room Tip: The unused rooms remain open so that you can view them-I believe that the owners are perfectionists...

Staff friendly & have a sense of humour as did the residents.
Rooms were very clean and equipped.
The bar could do with a real ale on the tap (that's me being fussy), though does have Carlsberg on the tap & different spirits which is enough to have a couple before you hit the town.
Breakfast fine & helps to cure a hangover :)

The moment we entered the hotel we were made to feel like we were old friends. The rooms were spotlessly clean and had everything you could ever want.
Had such a great time we're booking our return tomorrow!!!

Best B&B in Blackpool!!!!!! Really missed staying here this year. Graham and Ian are the best hosts, along with Philip and John. Their hospitality is great, the rooms are spotless and the breakfast is yumm! If you get a chance, stay here.....you'll NEVER regret it!!!!!

Room Tip: Number 14, a single has just been refurbed and is awesome!!!

Just landed back from great weekend in Blackpool staying at the 4star Raffles BnB - Location is fab just 2 mins from sea life centre and 5 mins to winter gardens - Graham and Ian are perfect hosts and you must meet Philip the barman who is lovely - We stayed in Chinese themed room on top floor and walk up the stairs was well worth it - wish my bed at home was this comfy - room was perfect with en suite flat screen tv and tea n coffee facilities- breakfast full English prepared by Ian was best iv'e ever had and we can't wait to go back - The best BnB in Blackpool by a GOLDEN MILE

Room Tip: We loved the themed Chinese room on top floor - lovely idea to have special themed rooms
