As seasoned visitors to Blackpool, we have, in the past, stayed on the north shore. We thought we'd try something different this time as it is a bit of a trek from there to most of the attractions, so we started raking throught the many hotels and guesthouses aroung the central / south shore. about 50 odd reviews later, we came accross the Glen Guest house, inbetween the central and south shore. We booked 2 nights on Late rooms (as there were some good reviews on there, and they were not on here, our usual yardstick) as from the pictures it looked nice. Arriving quite late on Friday evening, we were very pleased with the location, just one street off the promenade. Another reason we chose the hotel over others was due to the car parking space that came with the room, something you dont get with many guest houses in blackpool, it's generally road parking, if and where you can, so this was a definate plus point. Greeted by Adrian and Pam, we were told the rules, time for breakfast, etc. and shown to our first floor room. The room was very nice, clean and with all the usual things you get with an ensuite. We ventured out for some food and then came back for a very sound nights sleep.
The following morning, breakfast was served at 9.30, and was very nice, freshly cooked and plentyful.
We really rated this hotel, the position was close enough to both the Golden Mile / Pleasure Beach, but in a quiet area far from the sounds of the drunken revellers and Hen and Stag parties staggering home in the early hours. People either love or hate the many delights of Blackpool, we are, as you can tell, the former, and when we return next season, it will be to the Glen.
