Thornhill Hotel
Ranked #104 of 863 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 September 2012

The Thornhill is in a superb location only a stone's throw from the sea front and 2 minutes from the tram stop. It's great to be in such a convenient location yet still have peace and quiet, away from the main bustle. Our room was clean and compact and had everything we needed for a short break. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows and a nice warm duvet. It was nice to get a little chocolate bar with our drinks - a nice change from from a biscuit. The public areas were pleasant and traditionally decorated with an inviting feel to them. The lounge was very nice and well equipped with a flat screen tv & Nintendo. There were also books and magazines, and plenty of tourist information for guests. Gaynor & Steve were friendly without being intrusive, which we appreciated. Gaynor made the effort to use our names and remember our breakfast preferences which was a nice touch. The parking space is a real selling point and quite unique for Blackpool. Watch out for others that may not have a guaranteed space! Breakfast was great - fried bread (not too fatty), sausage, thick cut bacon, beans, tomato, hash brown and a fried egg, as well as nice thick toast and cereal, orange juice, tea & coffee.

The Thornhill is located in one of the roads leading off the promenade, about half way between the Tower and the South Shore pleasure beach, so everything is within walking distance, and yet there is no noise problem. Off road car parking is included; essential in Blackpool

Our twin room was small but very comfortable and sparklingly clean. From choice we don't eat cooked breakfast, but the other guests were obviously enjoying their 'Full English', and our toast was very good!

There is no lift, but Steve insisted on carrying our case to and from our room.

He and Gaynor, the owners, were friendly, but not intrusive, and cheerfully responded to our few special requests.

We would recommend this place to couples and families
