We stayed at the kenley last year for the first time and after a wonderful weekend we promptly booked again for last weekend. This time we brought our two daughters & granddaughter who loved the Kenley as much as we did. Mike & Tony give a first rate service in everyway. From the welcome and hospitality the decor and cleanliness of all the rooms, dining room & sitting room to the superb breakfast that greats you every morning. Our granddaughter Millie fell in love with the fish tank & spent all her time looking and asking questions about the fish. The nothing is too much trouble attitude sets the Kenley apart from any other hotel we have ever stayed in. The recent refurb is so impressive & within keeping of all the tastefully decorated rooms. The kenley is the only place we would ever stay in blackpool and will look forward to returning again next year. Thank you Mike & Tony for making our stay with you so lovely & relaxing & thank you for the girls Easter eggs which was a really generous touch & touches like that is what children remember. Mike & Tony you really are doing an amazing job, keep up the good work & we will be counting the weeks down until we visit you again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of equal standard.

Just back from an amazing three night stay at the Kenley. When we arrived we were askef if we would like any drinks then shown to our room. We stayed in the family room which was a great size for the three of us. There was an easter egg sitting on the bed for our 8 year old he was over the moon with this such a nice touch. The rooms are spotless anf the breakfast is the best in blackpool. We were sad to leave an our wee boy is now asking when we are goin back. Tony and Mike are the perfect hosts so friendly and were quite happy to listen to our wee one and his exciting exploits in blackpool!!! Thanks for a great stay guys can't wait to come back.

We arrived at the Kenley after a short walk from Blackpool South train station, we were greeted with hot drinks and biscuits and our bags were taken to our room for us. As the hotel was quiet, we were upgraded to a super kingsize room which was lovely!
Everything about our 2 night stay was perfect - the owners are friendly and helpful, giving recommendations of places to eat etc, the hotel is in a great location - only around a 15 minute walk to the Pleasure Beach and a short taxi journey to the main area of bars & clubs. The breakfast both mornings was amazing too! We would absolutely recommend this hotel to our family and friends and hope to visit again in the future :-)
Thank you!

Booked The Kenley for my 18th birthday to have a long weekend. We travelled by coach and arrived early so we went there not really expecting our room to be ready. However when we got there are room was ready for us and they offered us a hot drink. They were very polite and suggested that we went the pleasure beach that day as it would be dead because it was a Friday, so we would have chance to get on everything without waiting for anything. They were right we did not wait for any ride. That night they gave us directions for this place where we wanted to go. The next morning we got up and had the best breakfast we have ever had. That day we asked about different places to eat at night and they gave us some menus of places we picked one and they phoned there to book is a table however the restaurant was already booked up so they booked a different place for us. The next day was our last day there and the breakfast again was fantastic and they were so helpful as we had to wait for our coach which wasn't until late. They let us keep our bags there and we could come and get our bags when it was time. Overall the Tony and Mike were friendly and the best hosts anyone could ask for. The beds are so comfy that it is the best night sleep you will have. They provide everything you need including ear plugs for people who might have other halves that snore. The breakfast is fantastic. We can't wait to go back next year.

We have stayed at the kenley on numerous occasions when my daughter danced at the wintergardens. It is always first rate in everyway. From the welcome and hospitality from mike and tony, the decor and cleanliness of all the rooms and public areas to the superb breakfast. The recent refurb is so impressive. The location too is perfect in the middle between the north and south attractions but on a nice quiet clean road. The kenley is the only place we would ever stay in blackpool and the place I always recommend. Well done mike and tony, you really are doing an amazing job and should feel extremely proud.

Both my wife and I stayed at the Kenley last weekend as we were attending a fitness conference in Blackpool. Having read through many reviews on various hotels/B&Bs in Blackpool we came across The Kenley, having read all the great reviews we decided to book. Booking was easy through the website, Tony replied via email confirming our booking. Both my wife and I follow a gluten free diet, this was not an issue at the Kenley, Tony reassured us that gluten free options would be provided for breakfast. On arrival we were greeted by Tony, who made us feel very welcome, our bags were taking to our room, after check in we went to our room no.2, it was spotlessly clean, very chic/trendy room furniture, a lovely little touch was that Tony & Mike provided Gluten Free nibbles and biscuits on the tea tray in our room. Good selection of toiletries, the towels fluffy. As we were attending a Spinning conference, it ment each day we had a bag of sweaty clothes, most places would have refused to wash our gear, but at the Kenley this was not an problem. Each day our gear was washed, dried and smelled fresh, this was very helpful to us both, thanks Tony&Mike. Breakfast was a lovely experience, lots of fresh fruit, fruit juices and cereals. The hot food breakfast options are extensive and very tasteful. We had to be up quite early each day, meaning we needed breakfast outside of the regular breakfast hours, again Tony&Mike were very accommodating getting up early to have our breakfast ready for us in time, thanks Tony&Mike. Location was perfect for us to the Winter Gardens. My wife and I found the Kenley a truely lovely place to stay, very modern, elegant and clean with delicious food. Tony & Mike are very friendly, hospitable and will go above and beyond to accommodate. If your travelling to Blackpool, book into the Kenley you will not be disappointed. Thanks Tony & Mike, we will definitely be back.
