“The HOSTS with the MOST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2010

My Wife and I have stayed with Phil and Julie at the Hounddog twice now. On both occasions we could not have been looked after better. We have stayed in many hotels in Blackpool both large and small. however after our expierience at the Hounddog we would definately never stay anywhere else. If Phil and Julie were fully booked then we would change our dates, simple as that. the lounge/ bar is the focal point of the Hotel and the place to meet new friends, and from the superb breakfast to a late night drink everything is at your beck and call with a smile. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spick and span whilst the central location is ideal for all of Blackpools many attractions. The old cliche "Arrive as a guest, depart as a friend" certainly befits this small wondreful Hotel. jimingham@mail.com

Once again another fabulous break at the hounddog with Phil and julie. New years eve was especially a blast when we had a nice buffet put on by Julie and some party games hosted by Phil especially the karaoke. In fact we spent several days of new years partying 8)

If you come with a large family its handy as they have a 7 person family room - although be careful if your mother snores 8)

Well be back in the spring for our spring break

I have stayed two years in a row with Phil and Julie now with my two small children. They are the most welcoming, warm and accomodating people i have ever met in a hotel or b&b. The hotel is clean and well kept, lovely rooms and child friendly. You really couldn't ask for more with the service at the hounddog and i will always saty there on my trips to blackpool, why move from perfection? Once again Phil and Julie i'd like to thank you for making our holiday all the better.
