“Just had to review this place again....”
Reviewed 12 September 2010

Have just returned from a weeked in Blackpool and where else could we stop but THE SEACROFT! I have reviewed this excellent, well run, spotlessly clean and friendly Hotel before but so often we are so quick to complain and so vague and reserved when praise is due that I thought I would review it again just for fun! The welcome was as warm as we have come to expect from the two Tims, friendly, welcoming and most importantly possibly GENUINE. The rooms were still spotless, clean and large and again so welcoming it was almost like coming home ( a bit sickly sweet I know but it's true). The group consisted of a mixed bag of friends of a wide age range, all with different expectations and their own possibly "quirky" demands and not one of them, young or old, male or female was disappointed. We all went out to party on the Friday night and arrived back a little late (or was that far too early) and a little worse for wear so were only just on time for the breakfast service starting at a very reasonable 10am. To be honest some of us were there almost 15 minutes late! Tim was quite accepting of this fact (maybe because we had the manners to apologise I can not say) and took the breakfast order which was served promptly and happily despite our tardiness. Saturday we were all in and out shopping and having a laugh, other friends popped in to see us, we sat in the reception area as at one point it threw it down with rain and not one complaint or gripe from either of the Tims who seemed more concerned that the weather would dampen our spirits and lent those stupid enough (me included) to have not brought one umbrellas and even the offer of coats! Now that is to me beyond the level of expected service! Out again Saturday back again but at a rather more sociable time so no lates at breakfast! The weather picked up so Tim put out the furniture at the front of the Hotel and we all sat out cahtting away, until some went shopping and then some went home until the last of us had left. Cheery goodbyes all round and another wonderful weekend had by all! Three cheers for the Tims! We shall be back and that is not only a threat but a promise! Thanks for your kindness and good spirited banter!

I booked in here for three nights and wanted a single but as they were gone was offered a 'small double' for £35 a night.
On my arrival I was upgraded to a tripple (perhaps because they didnt seel it) and the room was quite spacious and nice (I was told to use just oen bed so as not to change the sheets, which was fair enough)
I did not stay here the first night as I met friends in another hotel and stayed with them
On my second night I stayed in and had a good sleept.
On each of the three mornings I did not have breakfast there.
On my third night there I told the owner two friends of mine were alling by around teatime and he said he would show them up.
They left their bag there while we went for a meal and when I was still in the pub they collected it and left me back the key.
I brought another two friends back as they wanted see see pix I had taken of Manchester Gay Pride.
In bothe cricumstances there was no hanky panky, as theyre mates
Around midnight I inved a guy around that I met on Gaydar. He staed around an hour and then I went clubbing.
While in Flamingos I 'copped off' with a mguy and brought him back. This was around 6am
My flight back to ireland was at 2.30pm and I left the room around 1pm.
When I went downstairs I was shecked to be given a lecture by one of the owners, the younger Tim.
He told me that (a) I had not secured the outside door properly on my reutnr (b) that I was bringing back people without his permsioon and that he had seen them on his playback of CCTV
"This is our home too". Really? Having paid £35 for a double I would expected to bring back a guest for a bit of gun, especially as its listed as a gay hotel and in the heart of the gay nightlife.
(c) He told me I checked out two hours late (although he didnt knock to remind me at 11am that I was overdue
With that he said he was charging me an extra £30, which he put through the machine without my permission. This in my mind is akin th therft.
I told him that the first two sets of people were personal friends. he said he didnt care.
I also pointed out I did not stay there the first night and that I didnt use the breakfast.
I work as a journalist with a national newspaper in ireland and sometimes write holiday reviews and I have never seen such behaviour by a hotel owner.
Does he pry on all his guests with this CCTV footage. God knows where else he has cameras hidden.
He had ordered me a cab and I was so angry with him I said I would rather wait outside for it and that I not any of my friends would ever stay there.
It's such a shame as the rooms are quite nice and the reception was initially friendly but if Tim wants to rip off people with his 'Valley of the squinting windwos' syndrome then he can go jump over the nearest cliff (which will hopefully be caught on CCTV and a copy sent round to me for my own private viewing).

Booked the Seacroft based on its excellent location and tripadvisor reviews - we werent disapointed. Arriving early than the advertised check in time we were given a warm welcome by Tim and allowed our rooms straight away. The rooms were roomy and had en-suite facilities. The en-suite in my room looked virtually new and comprised a shower, toilet and sink with tiled floor. Towels were also provided as were iron, ironing board, fridge, kettle with tea\coffee and milk. The entire B&B was immacuately clean so much so I offered Tim a job cleaning my house. Before going out for the evening we sat at the front of the B&B with Tim & Tim and there friends and had a good chat about varous different things. They recommended were to go and were to eat, they even provided us with discount admission tickets to Flamingos. The hotel was extremely quiet at night and the bed was also extremely comfortable to sleep on. Upon leaving the next morning we were given a friendly send off. To summarise the stay, The Seacroft is an exceptionally well ran and maintained B&B in a town synonymous with rubbish. I will definitely been revisiting.

This is the first time I have stayed at the Seacroft but will defintely be staying there every time now, the rooms are spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable and big, they have every 'added' extra you could want. As for Tim and Tim - words fail me, superb hosts, nothing is to much trouble - thank you so much and see you soon. Kathy, soon to be wife of Julie

Stayed at lots of B&B's in Blackpool but this is far superior to any of the others. Rooms are spotless, facilities are second to none and Tim & Tim are the friendliest most gorgeous hosts. Would highly recommend this establishment and will only ever stay here now. Thanks for a wonderful stay and "thankyou for having us" !!
