Second visit to the hotel,fantastic atmosphere and fully booked for last weekend. Great hospitality,fun nights in the bar,games and Barry's silly antics kept us entertained for hours. Food was as excellent as last time,rooms spotless. Andrea is such a great pleasure to talk to,always friendly and smiling. Great family atmosphere and my mum loved it so much. Already booked for february on reopen week,can't wait for my next visit to the wonderful hurstmere hotel. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :) see you feb

We stayed at the hurstmere for a 2 night midweek break and what can I say it was the best decision we could have made.
On our arrival Barry was straight on hand to welcome us and show us to our rooms even helped us carry our cases to them.
For our family room we had room 4 which was excellent as it had a curtain to shut of the little ones sleeping area at night, it was clean tidy and very homely.
We also had the wee gran with us how was more than impressed with her single room.

For family's I can happily recommend this hotel as a little gem for them I've never met a host like Barry who is so welcoming to kids be it at breakfast or down in the bar for a wee tipple before there bed (fruit shoot). Andreas cooked breakfasts were amazing and the kids also loved her wee cuddles that they got whenever she seen them

Will defiantly back summer next year :)

I have been going to blackpool for years and I always used to change hotels every year until I found the hurstmere 9 years ago,I will never go to another hotel/ B&B in blackpool again.It has everything you need,its run by 2 lovely friendly hosts who make you feel very welcome,its in the perfect location and excellent value for money.I am always sad to leave but look forward to visiting again.I have stayed here with my family and have also stayed here alone with my partner,I would highly recommend The hurstmere to other couples and families.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review our B&B. Sorry its taken so long to respond, we have been busy decorating and improving.

It was great to watch such a dramatic episode with Kath in the bar - definitely needed a drink after!!

We hope you are all well and busy planning your next trip to see us at the seaside.

Take care and thank you again.

Me and my friend went mid week for my birthday, upon arrival both Barry and Andrea both seemed warm friendly welcoming people.
Barry's knowledge about Blackpool and the local area was great as he was able to give us advice on places to eat, not to eat and places worth visiting.
Each time you came in to the hotel they were friendly and welcoming, they always showed an interest in activities that you had done and were pleasant and easy to talk to.
The bar was a nice place to end a night with, the bar is excellent for all ages as there is plenty for the children to do whilst adults have a drink. Andrea and Barry will happily chat to you whilst having a drink and would show an interest and offer to help in any way that they could.
I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone and would consider going back myself in the future!

Just back from another fantastic holiday at the Hurstmere. I think the tears from my seven year old when it was time to go home says it all! We have been staying annually for a number of years now and never fail to be impressed. Both my parents needed medical care when on holiday this year and Barry and Andrea couldn't have done more to help, it's much appreciated. From the clean, comfortable rooms to the delicious breakfasts, we are never disappointed. The family bar is fantastic for unwinding with the kids in the evening. Barry always knows the best places to eat and things to see and do! It's like staying with family. We can't wait until next year, we are booked in already! Thank you again Barry and Andrea. Xxx

Dear Yolanda

I think our children look forward to your visit each year as much as you do, its always great catching up with you all.
We have to say that your dad was a pretty good patient but not as good as your mum LOL ;-)
and we trust she is still well and that George is back to his cheeky self.

We are looking forward to seeing you again next year as you have already reserved you favourite room (very wise)

Thanks for the review again we really appreciate it.

Have a great Christmas and take care.

Much love

Andrea, Barry & girls
