My wife and I have just returned from a Northern Soul weekend away with our friends staying at the excellent Glen Guest House. The Glen is ideally situated, a 2 minute walk to the bottom of the road puts you on the front by the Central Pier. The house is tastefully decorated and the rooms are spotlessly clean with lovely touches such as robes, slippers and toiletries, although our room was a little compact. A big advantage is the on site parking as the Blackpool side roads can get very congested and parking can be difficult to find. The breakfast is to die for and some of us had to reduce our requirements on the second morning as they could not manage a second helping. But one of the best things about the Glen is John the owner, he is a genuine likeable man who always takes time to talk to you and make sure you are enjoying your stay, not only at his guest house but in Blackpool in general. We enjoyed having pre-drinks in the resonably priced bar, with him and his friends before we set out on the night. When we go back to Blackpool for our next Northern Soul outing we will definitely be staying at the Glen.
