Thank you Joy c for reviewing your 2nt stay in one of our Standard Double Ensuite rooms. We are pleased you enjoyed your break, & found our standards of cleanliness & our Breakfast products of a high standard. A lot of guests book because we are only a 5-10 min walk into the heart of everything yet also away from the noisy nightlife ... Look forward to seeing you both again on a return visit Regards Gill & David

Loved that David remembers your name and little personal details about you and uses this information to make your stay feel like home from home.
The room that we used was a little small but well equipped and catered all our needs.

Thank you carolyn h for reviewing your stay in one of our Standard Double ensuite rooms, We are pleased you found the service to be excellent & felt like our BnB had the home from home feel...We have to agree that our Standard double rooms are our smaller rooms & this is reflected in our pricing structure...Unfortnately as this was a last mininte booking this was the only room type available for you to book. We do have other rooms at a small suplement per night but quite often they sell out first. A Standard double offers a good value base from which to explore Blackpool if your staying a night or two or if more more space & comfort are an essential part of a stay we recommend a larger room....Glad you still had a great stay though & hopefully a larger room will be available for you to book on a return visit Regards Gill & David

Above average accommodation. Lots the little things done really well. Room we stayed was clean just what you would expect and had all you needed with the little extras to give top marks. Coffee and tea all on hand. Nice and quite hotel too. Breakfast was varied and the full English was excellent. Hosts went out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. Free WiFi too a bonus. Overall a high class B&B

The hotel is lovely and has a nice relaxing atmosphere. Gill and David are really friendly and are always welcoming. The room I stayed in was always cleaned to a high standard, everything I needed was already in the room. Breakfast has lots of choices and it is very appetising. The hotel is within close walking distance to the promenade and it is a quiet but lovely place to stay which is what I prefer my hotels to be like. I have stayed at Gill and David's for the past 4 years and I plan to keep spending my holidays there.
