The Dragonfly

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We stayed in Blackpool for my birthday. Adam and Paul (the owners) could not have been more helpful. We were welcomed as if we were long standing friends. Nothing was too much trouble. They recommended somewhere for us to eat that night and in our room, they had placed birthday banners!
The hotel itself was clean, welcoming, comfortable (next time we come, we are having the room with the sleigh bed)! The breakfast was superb and the decor is amazing. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Any room is a good room. Quiet, free wifi, comfortable.

Just had a weekend break in Blackpool. Believe it or not first time I'd visited the city! Great hotel - Dragonfly. Great location, few minutes from the beech and many other attractions. Very welcoming, loverly relaxed atmosphere, nice clean rooms and excellent breakfast. Our hosts, we're great, really helpful, provided us with lots of info' about where to go, and the best places to eat. Have to say we were all sad when the weekend came to an end, but already planning another stay at the Dragonfly.

The date of my stay isn't accurate. My wife and I stayed here a few years ago now and we promised the lovely owners a review on this site which we forgot to do! So I'm doing it now. Sorry guys :-)
Couldn't be happier! A lovely surprise in a town addled with budget accommodation. Clean, tidy, friendly, comfortable... need I go on??? 6 out of 5!!!! Satyam the Dragonfly!!!

As always when looking for a hotel in Blackpool its s bit of pot look, but this time we were all highly delighted!!!!! It was a weekend away for me and four friends to have a girly break to celebrate my birthday. We booked a triple room and a twin,, as it was my birthday my room (the twin) was upgraded to a larger family room which had a double bed and a single ..The room was large plenty of room for clothes tea and coffee facilities and a lovely bathroom with shower,, my friends triple room was equally as nice and their bathroom was brill with a large power shower,,, breakfast was fresh cooked and pleanty of choice.. our hosts couldn't do enough for us were so friendly with lots of advice were to go,, so thanks guys for a brill weekend and we will defiantly be coming back and recomending you to our friends

stayed this weekend (2 couples) i'd looked at various places to stay, was a last minute booking/decision to go to Blackpool for the night. have stayed at a few places over the years and although most were ok we haven't returned to the same one yet. i would however stay at the Dragonfly again! the room although small was lovely and clean as was the bathroom with chunky, soft towels. there were coffee making facilities, biscuits and a little chocolate which was a nice touch. breakfast choice was great and Adam and Paul really friendly, was a little more expensive than some of the B&B's we have previously stayed in but then again the quality was better. tip to the hosts - save on your heating bills turn the radiators down a bit :) i would recommend this B&B to family/friends.

I would really recommend staying at the Dragonfly. The hosts Adam and Paul are really friendly and are always there to help. The room was lovely, spacious, clean and tidy. I especially liked the bar area and they do great cocktails for a reasonable price. The breakfast was exceptional and there was so much choice. I will definitely be visiting again!
