“fantastic hosts and hotel excellent value”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I stayed with my family and relations from abroad, Dave and Ted were excellent hosts, very friendly, they made us feel like friends rather than guests. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

I stayed with my sister in a spacious 2 double bedded room which was a really good size and the en suite was a good size too. The pictures in the bedroom went well with the decor and when Dave told me about a certain picture over the bed, it made me like it better, my bed was very comfortable..

The breakfast was amazing, plenty of choice, different fresh and bottled juices, plenty of fruit, cereals, croissants, muffins, cooked breakfast which was cooked lovely.

It is a lovely hotel and I don't think you could get better hosts, as I am disabled I was worried, but they put me at ease.

The whole family enjoyed our stay and we are looking forward to coming back again.

Thank you Dave and Ted for being excellent hosts.

This is the only place to stay, well worth the money, excellent value, no-one would be disappointed here. We had an excellent stay due to Dave, so thank you Dave, and we look forward to seeing you again.

What a great little gem this place is. We were made to feel welcomed straight away as soon as we got there. Our room was spotless, first time we have eve had a room with sea view, the hotel was very clean throughout. Breakfast was a top notch. The host, well nothing was too much of a problem, as for the staff so friendly. While we were there we got engaged which made the whole trip worth it. If you miss this place you are a fool. I would recommend The Maples to every one. We are planning to return later in the year for the lights. Well done to Dave and Ted for keeping a great place, hope to see you soon.

Room Tip: book here if your going to blackppol

last minute booking at the maples,more than exceeded our expectations.For years we have stayed up the road (you know where Dave)we will never darken their doors again! Fantastic breakfast,the choice of fresh fruit was amazing,also freshly ground coffee.We had the only room available just perfect,my husband said he had slept better than at home (could have had something to do with the hospitality in the bar)This hotel really is a little gem, we will definitely be back.

My family all stayed mum and dad and sisters etc,. We were greeted very warmly and straight away felt a warm experience. The hotel was clean and tidy and sitting watching the world go by with a drink from a well kept bar, with a fantastic, friendly Irishman called Dave was very relaxing. The breakfasts were fab an excellent choice of cereal and fruits not t be found in an hotel this size. The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle but bus/tram stops outside.
I would certainly book this hotel again and recommend it.
Excellent food, excellent customer service , well done guys we really enjoyed our stay

First of all a big thank you to Dave and Ted for making our family and our overseas relatives very welcome . Our first impression was very inviting and we were made to feel welcome the minute we entered the hotel. My sister had telephoned on the day of arrival to explain she would have trouble climbing the stairs, this was dealt with and has a result was moved to the first floor. All our family were very happy with the 4 rooms we had, and we had a top floor sea view room. The lounge area is perfect for chilling out, with having drinks from the bar and watching the sunset and facing the sea. The reviews about the breakfast are so spot on what an amazing collection of fresh fruit and good quality cooked breakfast. A big thank you to the chef ,excellent breakfast. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in Blackpool. Friendly and helpful staff. Great hotel and what an amazing weekend with great weather. Once again a big thank you.

My husband found this little gem via Tripadvisor - the weekend we went to Blackpool, Rod Stewart was appearing at the football ground, so the place was busy. However The Maples, away from the hustle and bustle of the main town was just perfect. We were going to see Mamma Mia

A proper small hotel, run by the friendliest Irishman in the whole world - thanks Dave.

Our sea view room on the top floor was perfect - clean, tidy and very well presented.

The bar is well stocked and to sit in the lounge looking out over the sea was wonderful.

Breakfast - the best selection of fruit, cereals etc I have seen in a long time, and well in excess of what you would normally see in a hotel of this size. The full breakfast sets you up for the day - we walked miles, but its location is perfect and right opposite tram stop.

Like Alex B - we have booked again for the illuminations, but this time with 3 other friends - can't speak too highly of this hotel

Room Tip: Room 17 with a sea view - a long way up the stairs but worth it

Thank you so much for a great review. They're a big help to us, firstly to let us know that we're going in the right direction and secondly they're important because future guests will often make decisions on reviews. . . and it does take time to sit down and write . . so once again - thank you
