This hotel is probably the best I have stayed in. The owner and staff are so welcoming and friendly its like you have known them for years. My wife and I stayed for two nights in one of the two superior rooms in September 2011 The rooms are spotlessly clean large and well decorated with larger than average clean well equipped on-suites. There was a tea and coffee making tray in the room which also included herbal fruit teas. There was also a complimentary decanter or sherry with chocolates and two glasses in the room which was topped up daily ( how many rooms have that a glass of sherry and chocolates in bed for a night cap ) There was also a complimentary drink in the bar on the first night and bar prices (no draught various bottled beers only ) were very reasonable. The bar stayed open until you were ready to leave which was well after midnight as the staff and other guests were so entertaining.
The breakfast the next morning was excellent and they went out of their way to ensure you had anything you wanted ie they do not normally do fried bread, I mentioned that I liked fried bread and they made fried bread for myself and other guests who wanted it. The full English was definitely full and lasted us until tea time.
The hotel is about fifteen minutes walk along the north shore from the tower. It is situated on the side road adjacent to the Ritz hotel. There is a tram and bus stop outside the Ritz which is about 100yds from the Bracondale hotel.
The hotel does not have parking but there was ample unrestricted street parking outside the hotel and we and the other guests had no problems parking right outside the front of the hotel and due to it being a quieter area it felt safe to leave the vehicle on the roadway.
This really is a first class establishment and I would be happy to recommend it to anyone
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Bracondale guest house is located in the select area of north shore and Gynn square, away from the stag & hen parties but close enough for all the attractions. We have sea views, views of Blackpool Tower and the Illuminations when they are on. There are fantastic restaurants close by, some with AA Rosette listings. ... more less
