The Merginn
Ranked #372 of 859 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 September 2009

Great stay, good clean B&B.

Welcome cup of tea on arrival, juice for little one's.

Lovely breakfast at a time to suit us.

Great location not far from the main drag but just out of it enough to get some peace and quiet.

Would stay there again without any worries.

Just back from Blackpool. Stayed at the Merginn and as I said it was pure brill.Steve and Dawn are a really lovely couple making you feel truly welcome. Christopher and Emma loved the bunk beds and we found the room spaceous for Blackpool and the standards of cleanliness excellent. The breakfast included in the price we payed was freshly cooked and delicious. Steve also made a special effort for Christopher's (our wee boy 3)breakfast having wee willy winky sausages. Steve gave us good advice on the first night about the fire works.
As a family that after a few bad experiences in Blackpool that went for the travellodge option I must say that my mind has changed and from now on we will if possible book into the merginn...

Thanks Steve & Dawn for a lovely stay. The room was very nicely decorated and very clean. They have a secure carpark at the back which is locked at night. The breakfast was really good and set us up for the day. They are a really friendly couple and went out of their way to make sure we had a nice time in Blackpool and we would definately stay again on a trip to Blackpool.

Many thanks, Leigh & Caroline

Steve and Dawn are wonderful hosts, made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrived, very attentive service, and very child friendly environment.

Super local knowledge helped us plan our days and a genuine interest in helping us have a good break was always evident.

Can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you Steve and Dawn.
