“Fantastic Weekend At The Arthington”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

Stayed 07/10/11 - 09/10/11 and have to say that everything was excellent. Steve and Elaine (the owners) are two of the nicest people you could hope to meet and have transformed this guest house in to something really special.
The rooms are all individually styled and decorated to an exceptionally high standard and come with complimentary toiletries, tea, coffee, biscuits, bottled water, flat screen tv etc. Breakfast was delicious with various options of cooked food as well as cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, muffins, juices etc, we also had an evening meal one night which was great too.
Its location is ideally placed just off the sea front in between the south and central piers making it close to all the main attractions.
This was our second visit here and have already booked for next year, can't speak highly enough of this place and its owners and would not book anywhere else

Room Tip: You will not be dissapointed with any of the rooms but for a special occation go for the King or Sup...

How can I best describe the Arlington?

The Arlington is everything you should demand from a guest house and much more. As soon as you walk through the door you are welcomed warmly by Steve and Elaine the owners.

The décor and facilities are to a very high standard. The breakfasts are cooked to refection. For a healthy option my wife recommends he Arthington Snowfall. In the evening you can sit in the very comfortable bar area. The design and lighting gives a very welcoming feel to the place.

The location of the guest house is in one of the more affluent parts of Blackpool. That said you are only a stone throw from all the action.

Remember this is a Guest House and not a hotel so please don't expect large rooms to hotel standard. That said our room was excellent. It was very clean and had all the facilities we needed including its own show and toilet. The bed was one of the most comfortable we had ever slept in. The bed cover and pillows were done very tastefully. This made the room very inviting.

I would highly recommend this guest house and can not praise Steve and Elaine enough for the service they gave.

This guest house comes highly recommended.

We arrived on a Friday and stayed for 2 nights in the super king room. I can't believe how big the room was! The bed was so comfy and I've not seen 4 star hotel rooms cleaner than the Arthington!
We were welcomed by Elaine and Steve with a free tea or coffe and then shown up to our lovely room.
There was a good choice for breakfast, always came out hot and didnt wait long either, Steve was always offering more toast as well and making sure that everything was ok with our food.
Elaine and Steve couldn't be more helpful and accomodating. Anything we needed they were more than happy to help. They also gave us loads of discount cards for all the attractions and restaurants.
When we come back to blackpool, we will be staying here again!

If you feel you really must spend time in Blackpool, you could not do better than stay in this bijou hotel/B&B. All the good stuff which has been said before, still applies. The proprietors could not do enough for my disabled sister. The food quality was faultless, if anything the portions were too big, at least for us. I would recommend this hotel to almost anyone, with the possible exception of those who cannot manage stairs. Though not the cheapest in town, this house offers great value for money and the location is only yards from the seafront. Quiet street.
