Fantastic weekend away at the glen. John, the proprietor was amazing, really friendly and welcoming. The room was exceptionally clean, breakfast was superb and perfect for any fussy eater. Will definitely be staying again In the future, hopefully sooner than later. Thanks again for the hospitality john.
All the best

My partner and I stayed her on the 9th and 10th April for a midweek break.
It was our first visit to this guest house and John (the owner) couldn't have done any more.
Upon arrival he made sure that we had parking and even though we were early our room was ready. A nice room with everything we needed. Had an electric shower, sink and toilet in the on suite and even being on the large side there was plenty of room. The bedding was feather and down and of good quality. Tea and coffee making facilities and good quality toiletries supplied, even down to shower gel. He had even provided slippers for each of us - a nice touch.
The room was really clean and light and airy.
The breakfast in the guest house was hearty and of good quality. Perfectly cooked fried eggs, nice thick tasty bacon and good meaty sausages. He even caters for vegetarians. All food is sourced locally and of great quality. The guest house is just off the front which helped shelter us from the wind. Bar prices were very reasonable as well.
John makes the place, he is just so friendly and obliging.
I really hope we can get back up there again soon, would only stay somewhere else if he is full.
He recommended a great Indian restaurant a short walk away and I would definitely seek his suggestions again. The guest house has free wifi with a decent speed.
It was just like staying with a really good close friend and we didn't want to leave.
Can't wait to go back.

Thank you so very much for such a lovely review. I am delighted that you both enjoyed your stay with me at the Glen. It was my pleasure to meet you and look after you during your stay here.
It is so special for me when strangers arrive for a stay at my guest house and leave as friends. You are both gentlemen and I look forward to our next meeting.

We stayed at the Glen Guest House from the 15th-17th Feb 2014 as the hotel we had originally booked with was cancelled last minute. All I can say is we were not dissapointed, so glad we stayed here.The guest house is very modern and clean and nothing is a problem to the owner John, you can clearly see he takes pride in what he's got. Also I would like to thank Carlos for the Tapas he made us and the amazing allioli! We would without a doubt, most definitely stay here again!! Keep up the good work, you're doing an amazing job. Oh and the breakfast is excellent - the choice is all yours!!!

See you soon, Gail and Scott from Scotland x

The Glen Guest house is a superb place to stay, me and my boyfriend went there for a long weekend and it exceeded all our expectations. the rooms are beautifully decorated and come with all the essentials a hotel would provide. The breakfast is amazing, you can choose what you want for your full English (good for me as I'm a fussy eater!) and it is cooked to perfection. John the owner is welcoming, friendly and funny and Carlos is the same. We will definitely be going back in the summer! Everyone should go here!!

The Glen has to be without a doubt the best guest house/ b&b I have ever stay in. John the owner was very welcoming and helpful and best of all had good banter with the group. The rooms wer out off this world,with lots of freebies!!! ;) and extremely clean. Breakfast was beautiful and could pick wot u had on your plate with me being a picky eater was fab! We all really enjoyed our stay at the glen and this would be the only place we would stay when we come back 2 Blackpool.

Great value for money and close to the town so if your going to Blackpool the only place to stay is The Glen xx
