“Another fabulous stay”
Reviewed 11 November 2012

Stayed back in September but as we had already reviewed the hotel from July only able to post another review.

What more can be said about the hotel??

Andrea and Barry are excellent hosts who can't do any more for you. (when do you want to babysit Rachel? lol)

Stayed in different room from previous stay and was nice and spacious and kept our wee boss happy. lol

Barry as ever kept everyone amused with his tricks.

We weren't even home and Rachel was asking when are we coming back.

Thanks for two excellent stays this year.

Ahh Rachel is welcome anytime!

Thank you again for reviewing our little B&B, it means a lot that people take the time to leave feedback for us and other guests.

We do have fun in the bar and as people are generally in good spirits on holiday, it makes our job all the more enjoyable.

Tell Rachel that she can come back whenever she wants and she can even bring mum & dad again!

Take care and thanks again

Thank-you Barry and Andrea for making our time in blackpool fantastic. The room was great with plenty of space and the choice for breakfast was superb. Also a big thank-you for getting our clothes dry after not listening to you about Valhalla.....!!!!! You are wonderful people with a lovely guesthouse in a great location. Downside.....none. We hope to return next year.

Thanks so very much for reviewing our family friendly guesthouse, we are delighted that you had such an enjoyable stay with us.

You will be pleased to know that you are not alone in not believing how wet the 'Valhalla' ride is - I have tumble dried many clothes this year!

We will most certainly be pleased to see you next year if you are mad enough! :-)

Take care and thanks again for the review.

Just got back from Blackpool, we stayed at the The Hurstmere in Alexandra Road, we had a great welcome by Barry and Andrea, really good location, excellent and comfortable accommodation, Barry keeps all entertained with his tricks and crazy hats, breakfast was excellent and plenty of it. They recommended a night out at Legends on Central Pier.....fantastic night with brilliant singers and dancers. All in all a really good weekend, thank you Barry and Andrea, see you soon.

Thank you so very much for leaving such a lovely review, we are really grateful.

Barry & I were delighted that you enjoyed the Legends show on central pier as much as we do.

We actually could go every night and not be bored, it's such a professional show.

I must say we certainly did enjoy meeting you and your friends, there was much laughter during your stay and we hope that you will return and see us again in the future.

Keep smiling and take care,

Andrea & Barry

Dear Yolanda

Thank you for taking the time to review us, and for re-booking for next year!

Barry and I really appreciate that we have so many returning guests, especially with the extensive choice of hotels here in Blackpool.

We do enjoy sampling all that our fabulous resort has to offer so that we can offer genuine advice on the best places to visit, especially with children.

We are glad you also enjoy our town so much.

Please give a big hug to Kerry and your folks and let them know we will stock up the JD for next year!

Take care until then.

We have just returned from our fourth year at The Hurstmere and had a wonderful time. Barry and Andrea are fantastic hosts who always make you feel welcome, my kids aged 8 and 2 love them and my little one had "drea" wrapped round her little finger, especially at breakfast time. The food is lovely and the fact that you can choose what you want is a huge bonus especially when travelling with the kids. Our 8 year old loves the tricks that Barry shows him and the bar is a great place to unwind at the end of the day, there is a wii and pool table and always other families/couples to sit and chat with. Barry and Andrea are always on hand to give advice on places to see and things to do which is helpful, see you next year xx

Room Tip: we have stayed on every floor of the hotel and cant complain about any of them x

Dear Debbie & Alan

Thank you for the review - as always it was wonderful to see you again and catch up with everything.
'drea' is missing being wrapped around the 'wee angels' little finger, but I'm sure she'll manage it again next year!
We will continue to do our best to provide a happy place for all our new and returning guests and we look forward to seeing how much the kids have grown next year.
Enjoy Disney and take lots of pictures to show 'drea' and Barry.

Take care for now and thanks again for reviewing us.

There was 10 of us including 5 children who stayed from 28th September to 1st October. As soon as we stepped in we felt very welcome by Andrea and Barry.
Barry showed us to our rooms and carried our bags up (sorry about the really heavy one barry) which were very clean and fresh.
On a night the kids loved it in the bar, with the Nintendo wii and all the toys. Not forgetting Barry keeping the kids (and adults) entertained with his magic.
At breakfast time there was everything you could think of to choose from with the added bonus of getting breakfast served immediately due to filling the breakfast card in the day before. The breakfast was delicious, all the food was hot and the quality of the food was superb.
Even at breakfast the kids were kept entertained with Barrys hat and his teddy toast.
If you are stuck on what to do Andrea and Barry are very good at advising on what there is to do in blackpool and where a;ll the best offers are.
We could not have chosen a better place to stay for our holiday and we are already planning to book for next year. my kids didnt want to come home lol

Thankyou to Andrea and Barry for a superb weekend and see you next year

Dear Daniel & Family

Wow, thank you for such a lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet all 10 of you!

Barry says he forgives you for the heavy bag but make sure you book the lower floor bedrooms next time! :-)

We are so pleased that you want to come back next year, we know that all our guests have plenty of places to choose from in Blackpool and it means a lot that people come back to us.
i guess we must still be doing something right after all these years.

Thank you once again and we'll see you all next year.

Take care

Dear Lauren & family

Thank you for taking the time to review us, we really appreciate it.
We do like to offer advice on all the things Blackpool has to offer and as a family friendly B&B we do try all attractions and as many restaurants as possible so that we can give you as much info on where to go and what to do with children.

Barry and I are really lucky to have a job where we meet so many lovely families such as yourselves, who enjoy their holidays and want to make the most of it. Barry loves to be kept busy entertaining the children (and adults) so you can relax and enjoy the bar in the evenings.

We really look forward to welcoming you next year.

Thanks again and take care

Andrea & Barry
