“Fabulous guest house.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Stayed for 2 nights at the Glen with my daughter and really enjoyed it. It is a good central location for the centre of Blackpool with free parking.John is a very welcoming helpful host. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the beds are so comfy, tasteful toiletries supplied. Breakfast is fantastic, freshly cooked and piping hot. I would definitely recommend this guest house.

The Glen is a very well run and maintained B&B. John is an excellent host too, he knocks up a top breakfast to boot. Rooms have attention to detail with nice decoration. Would recommend The Glen to anyone looking for a B&B in Blackpool.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at The Glen Guest House, excellent host John made us very welcome, superb breakfast with perfect poached eggs for breakfast. Excellent location 10 minutes walk to centre of Blackpool. Free parking a bonus. Rooms very nice and modern decoration. Beds really comfy with fluffy duvet and pillows. Exceptionally clean with power shower, enjoyed nice little touches of toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. Nothing too much to ask for from John very well looked after. Will be back and would recommend to anyone who wants to visit Blackpool. Indian restaurant Taj Mah Hal excellent just up the road take your own drink superb food - recommended by John.
Can't wait to return 1st class service and hotel.
Thanks David and Natalie

Room Tip: All rooms excellent and very well decorated, very modern with boutique touch.

Have spent weekend in blackpool the highlight of our weekend was our wonderful accommodation at glen guest house which I can not recommend enough our room was beautifully and tasteful decorated and spotlessly clean breakfast was first class and nothing was to much trouble for our host John even when one of our party asked for scramble egg in stead of Frayed when preparation was well under way thank you John for looking after us as if we where your friends staying in your home.

Room Tip: Lower floor if reduced mobility

Dear Sharon & Robert,
Some guests check in and you know straight away that you are going to get on. It was almost like friends had come to stay and you were definitely friends by the time you left.
Thanks for coming out on the town with us on Saturday night (even if we didn't see who we were supposed to!!!).
It was a pleasure to meet you both and Christopher & Gina also.
Come back soon.
Kind regards
