Best b&b ever.

Brian and Sylvia are gems. Clean room, well equipped with basics like kettle, tea/coffee materials etc. Fresh towels.

Brian picked and dropped us from the station. Smiling always, he never seems to rest. Sylvia manages the house - the breakfast is hot, cooked by her personally after asking you and served with a flourish.

Wife and daughter loved it so much didn't want to leave.

The hotel was little further away from the centre than we would have liked but we knew this when we booked. We were greeted at the door and taken to our room which was small (2 adults and 1 child) but clean. The ensuite was tiny even our 5 yr old commented on this !!!!. The service at breakfast was good and the food served hot with extra toast if wanted. However, you had to order your breakfast the evening before if you wanted anything other than a full english. Overall a pleasant stay.

Many thanks for your review and yes we believe that our location has many advantages to those B & B's
that are situated right in the centre of Town and all the loud noise. The quiet night sleep and safer parking means so much to many travellers these days.

We are 1.6 miles from Blackpool Centre and about a 15 minute tram ride from Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

I hope if people read these reviews and realise that we are not a large hotel but one with cosy rooms that are spotless with fresh bedding and towels changed every day and a breakfast that seems to satisfy most people.

We do hope to see you again in the future and thanks again for the review.

Just had to let you know that if you're planning a stay in Blackpool, the Oban is a little Gem, very clean, warm and welcoming. The owners are Father and Daughter, Ken and Sharon - they are lovely, made my whole family (21 of us) feel very welcome, couldn't do enough for us, even stayed up to keep the bar open for us - good times. Ken and Sharon make you feel like you've known them for years, felt just like visiting relatives, nothing was too much trouble.

Breakfast was very nice, service was outstanding, didn't have to ask for anything it was right there when you wanted it. Great value for money .
