Ok, you could argue that this is not a Hotel, it's more a B&B or Guest House, but whatever you want to describe it as it is a wonderful, quaint, comfortable, and more importantly, clean establishment, run by a friendly couple, who are only to pleased to help in any way they can.
I stayed here with my family over the Easter BH period, occupying rooms 23, (Twin with sea views) and 24, (Double with sea views).
Both had modern, well equipped bathrooms, and although there was no bath, (which i didn't mind), there was an excellent shower and always plenty of hot water. The bedroom itself was modestly furnished and comfortable, with nice views, through double glazed windows, out to sea and down towards the North Pier.
Breakfast was very, very good. Beautifully cooked, whether it be a full English or simply eggs on toast. There was cereal and fresh fruit if you wanted something lighter, together with a selection of yoghurts and fruit juices, and as much toast & preserves as you could want. I have stayed in some 5* hotels that didn't feed you so well.
My only gripe, if that's what you want to call it, is that there are no evening meals served. I would have gladly paid a little extra for BB&EM, especially if it were up to the standard of the breakfasts. I did raise this point with Graham, the owner, who said that there were so many eating establishments in Blackpool that they couldn't compete, price wise.
After paying, (for two adults & two teenagers), over £60 in Harry Ramsdens, (for fish & chips!), then £80+ in another restaraunt and £120+ in another in the four nights we stayed in Blackpool, given longer I would argue what he was saying!
The bar in the lounge area was an absolute dream! After spending 8 hours roaming round the Pleasure Beach with two teenagers, a very large G&T and to collapse into a comfy sofa was bliss.
Barnaby, (the owners African Grey), has to get a mention, as being a tease. Go to his cage in the bar and try to get him to talk to you and he will ignore you, but if you leave him alone and sit quietly he will chat away for ages, (my two girls loved him).
The Baron will be top of my list when looking to stay in Blackpool again, without any hesitation.
