Leatham Park Guest House
Ranked #367 of 860 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 May 2011

I really enjoyed my stay at Leatham Park Hotel. I have stayed there twice and both times it has been great. It is very close to the seafront which is excellent and the rooms are clean and had everything I needed. The owners are very friendly and the breakfast is lovely. Great value for money and a great place to stay!

We stayed here for a short springtime break and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel was very nice, as was the friendly reception. Good tasty breakfast, and fabulous decorations in the dining room!

Room Tip: Good location, near to Central Pier

we arrived at 9.30pm on a friday night after a lng drive from central scotland to be greeted with the lady owner of the guesthouse who was extrmely helpful and welcoming. we were a bit apprehensive of arriving this late but there was no problem whatsoever with the guesthouse. apon arriving we were given a key to both the main front door and our room so we could come and go as we please. the bar area was very family orientated and set out in the traditional blackpool style, just what we expected. all staff members were extremley friendly and great with our 5 year old daughter. room was absolutely spotless, cant think of any negative comments about it. bathroom had shower cubicle which was very clean and shower worked perfectly. clean towels were layed out on our arrival. set just 1 street back from the promenade this location was excellent, being a 1 minute walk around the corner and your on the promenade, but also quieter at night from the busing nightlife of the main drag. breakfast times very reasonable and food excellent!! staff gave us vouchers for money off the many attractions in blackpool. was surprised we were able to take drinks from the bar up to our room which we were much appreciative of, that way our daughter could go to bed while we enjoyed a couple of drinks to relax after our bustling day before going to sleep. only thing that was a problem was the parking, we had to park a few streets away which was about a 5-10min walk away. but most places are like that in blackpool and once we'd parked up on the friday night we didnt use the car again until leaving on the sunday.
we'd highly recommend this guesthouse to everyone and would like to thank the family for having us and making our stay in blackpool worthwhile!!

Lovely clean room, comfortable bed. Location was close to amenities but no disturbance at night from bars, clubs etc. Friendly and welcoming staff with good food. Will definitely be staying again.

I booked up at this B & B for my Hen Weekend as i was impressed at all the good reviews, I liked it straight away, its not too far from the front and main attractions, yet the road is quiet, we were greeted by Suzanne and at once we all felt welcome we went into the bar area and were greeted by her well mannered dogs, that proved no problem at all, we paid and then went to our room, the room was lovely and homely 1 double bed and a bunk bed and own toilet and bathroom, very clean and fresh, the beds were very comfy too we all had a lovely sleep. The breakfast was delicious we had cereal,cooked breakfast and lots of toast with jam, it really set us up for the day, had a fantastic weekend and even though our coach wasnt until the afternoon, Suzanne let us leave our luggage there so we could do a bit of gift shopping. We will be returning and i would happily stay here with the children.

The classic, "you get what you pay for" establishment.

We got a resaonable online deal which was very cheap, especially being in the week during low season, and questions were responded to quickly by email. When we arrived, it didn't look so promising. The reception/lounge/bar (this is a B&B, not an hotel as such) comprises most of the ground floor (breakfast room is in the cellar) and we weren't delighted to find that there were 2 dogs behind the bar while we were checking in. Seemingly they are usually kept in the back yard, but were in the place while the back was having work done on it. I'm not a big dog person, but having a dog jumping up and barking constantly while checking in wasn't great. Not exactly reassuring to be advised not to put my hand on the counter just in case, "not bit anyone... yet" Hopefully this is a temporary thing, but if you're not comfortable with dogs, this place isn't for you. Seemed to be dog blankets on the sofas in the lounge, but we were only there when checking in. There is a large telly and seemed to be quite a few board games on a shelf.

It's a family run place and they seem nice people, but the edge is taken off it by the dogs and the notices around the place advising food bought outside is not allowed in the place (you only get breakfast and toasties which we never tried) nor alcohol. Sort of understandable, but no mention of this (or the dogs) on the website. We'd brought some champagne for an anniversary, but didn't feel comfortable drinking it.

Breakfast is cereal, toast and limited FEB, but we only bothered one day as it was OK, but nothing special (to be fair, you can't expect amazing breakfast for the £ we paid though) hours were a bit limited though. We didn't try the bar, as each time we went past, the lounge/bar was shut.

There are 7 rooms over 3 floors in usual Victorian seaside town fashion, plus one standalone loo (no basin, presumably to save going to your room from the lounge.) Can't comment on the other rooms, but ours was en suite, assume the rest are too. The room was clean and not in bad nick, though the bathroom was a little run down - again clean, but noisy cistern, shower enclosure a bit rickety and oddly no soap, just a sachet of shower gel. Usually take our own shower gel, but tend to assume there'll be soap.

The room wasn't the roomiest, and there are no sea views if that's important to you (Irish sea means that sea view = windy anyway) the main problem (other than the dogs) was the bed - I'm 6' 2" and between the small bed and duvet, I always had feet and or knees poking out in the cold. It being September and the radiators not being on through the night, this meant far from good kip. Very small telly in the room with freeview and also kettle and nominal tea & coffee.

Location is just off the prom, quite close to a big car park, plus there is on street parking. Bit of noise from the street, but that is the price you pay for being close to popular pubs and the front itself.

Overall, was very cheap (not sure about rates in season etc, but very good outseason mid week.) and if you're after a cheap B&B (this isn't really an hotel by normal definition) and just want somewhere clean and near the front to kip in, it'll do the job, and there are worse places (we went to the Balmoral on the fromn 10 years ago and it was laughably bad, may be better now, but I doubt it.) I personally wouldn't go back for 2 reasons. The dogs were really unnerving - if you don't mind dogs, you'll be fine, but otherwise, it's a no go. The other reason is the very small beds and duvets - again fine if you're not tall, but I didn't sleep well at all.

Well again you have writen a review for my hotel. The dogs seem to be an issue with you, they wasnt all over the place, what dog blankets there was no such thing in the bar area. We dont keep the dogs in the back yard only put them out side while people check in. We have to have some work done at some point and it didnt distrubt the hotel its self. As for drinking in the rooms were are not licenced for alcohol to be drank outside of the bar area. the food notices are for stopping people taking take away foods in the rooms and staining the covers. Our road is off the main prom so no sea view! as for the noise on the street what do you except staying in Blackpool people have to walk up the road.
As for the beds all my double beds are standard size along woth the duvet.
Limited full english breakfast, sausage, bacon, tomotoes, beans, friad egg and fried bread along with toast and cereal!!
The bar is open 7-11pm as the sign says on the door of the bar
As i can see from all the other comments you have written about other hotels you just moan.

The review you have given us have really disheartened me.

after a long drive to blackpool it was such a relief to find that the hotel i had picked was a cosy, friendly, spotless family run hotel. everyone is so friendly and approachable. my room was lovely and the thing i liked most about the hotel was the country house type style. 10 out of 10 from me guys. hope to see you again one day xx
