Reviewed 24 August 2012

by far the best b&b ive stayed in within blackpool. this will now be a regular stop for me .
so no need to look for another .

very stylish decor.
amazing nights sleep.
free wifi.
amazing service.
breakfast was really nice , and large selection
evening meals were also amazing .
i have a busy working lifestyle so i really prefer to eat at the hotels on a evening , most of the time i go out and eat because the quality lacks , the evening food at the arthington is as good as any place to eat in blackpool so perfect for me after a good days work.

see you guys next month and the month after and the month after ........p.s steve if your reading this ill get my water next time , i told you i would forget it haha

Me and my girlfriend recently went to Blackpool for a weekend with friends to celebrate one of their birthdays and booked in at The Arthington after seeing it's rating on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint.

The whole building has a warm and comfortable atmosphere whilst also modern and very well maintained. The double en suite room we stayed in was superb with a comfortable bed, a television with all free view channels, tea and coffee making facilities as well as hot chocolate, mints and even a flumf!

The hosts Steve and Elaine were fantastic and from the moment we arrived to the moment we departed nothing was too much effort. They were very helpful in recommending places to eat and things to do and also booking taxis when we needed them. They also left a box of chocolates on our friends bed after hearing it was her birthday which was an extremely nice touch.

Breakfast was again superb with a large choice of meals. Cooked breakfasts were delicious and arrived very quickly after ordering. They also provide fresh fruit, juices, cereals, tea and coffee.

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and I cannot recommend this hotel enough. It is in an excellent location, with great hosts, rooms, food and most importantly a great bar!

I would 100% stay here again and hopefully will very soon.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Arthington for the first time and we couldn't have been more pleased with it. The first thing we noticed was the exceptional cleanliness and the couple that run the hotel were attentive and welcoming. The room was spacious with all the facilities that you would expect of a more expensive hotel. The location of the hotel is ideal as it was 2 minutes from the beach and situated half way between the busy north and south peers so all the Blackpool attractions are never more than 5-10 minutes walk away. The hotel breakfasts were excellent too, with a buffet of cereals, fresh fruit, juices, yogurts and pretty much any cooked breakfast you could think of. Both the room prices and the bar prices were excellent value. I would not have any hesitation in recommending the Arthington hotel to our friends and family.

From the time we arrived until the final day the hosts Steve & Elaine made our stay great; and with wonderful breakfasts - healthy or full english! Elaine's cooking of the normal meals was spot on; we had one of the smaller rooms but perfectly adequate as far as we were concerned with very comfortable beds and an adequate bathroom with shower; let's face it we don't go on hols to spend daytime in particular in your room or hotel; you're out an about - even in poorer weather; we enjoyed the evening time beside the bar and a bit of talk both with the guests and our hosts; really great Elaine & Steve and thanks to them for their great efforts to more than make you enjoy your time in Blackpool, St Annes & Lytham;

Room Tip: if you want a special break there make sure you ask about their larger "very special" room...

After a long Train journey from Bristol to Blackpool we were Pleasantly Suprised to Arrive at a quiet but Beautiful little street Which had last year won Blackpools Street of the Year award, Then To be Greated So Warmly By The Owner once we entered The Arthington with Coffee or Tea and A Personal Quide of The best places to Eat, Drink and What ever Entertainment you require. Having been shown to our Modern and Beautifully Decorated Room which was Filled with anything you could possibly need we then set about town. During the 3 night stay Steve and Elaine (owners) Welcomed Us into their home with open arms and were there in the background if Ever you need them. The Arthington Gave me the Best Breakfasts we have Ever Eaten, All cooked by Elaine herself and a Fantastic Sirloin Steak with all the Trimmings For one Evening Meal.The Bed was the best night sleep we have had in a long time with pillows to suit all tastes. So much so we rushed out to buy a new Feather Duvet as soon as we got back home! Just a stones throw from the Promenade by the Beach and All Attractions Elaine and Steve Provided us with the Best Restaurants In town to Eat and Taxis offered if needed. We could not Have Had a better Experience for our first Hotel Holiday in 11 Years and Would Highly Recommend this Guest House as the only place to stay in Blackpool. Thank you Elaine and Steve for Welcoming us into Your Home and Such a Wonderful Blackpool Experience.

Have just returned from The Arthington, excellent hotel. Hosts Steve & Elaine (and Tanya the dog!) were very friendly & helpful from the minute we arrived, the room was exquisite, complete with chocolates and balloon for our wedding anniversary. The breakfast was gorgeous (highly recommend the reservoire eggs!!). Cannot wait to return, thank you Steve & Elaine for a wonderful unforgettable stay :o) xx
