Glen Guest House
Ranked #20 of 861 Blackpool B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 August 2010

We stayed at the Glen with 2 children for 4 nights last midweek. I got allocated a parking space at the front door and a room on the 2nd floor. The room was immaculate and had an en-suite toilet/shower albeit it was quite cramped for a family. Breakfast was perfect witha choice of anything you wanted and set you up for a day out in Blackpool. The guest house was in a very quiet locale and even with the window open a good nights sleep was had by all. I would certainly recomment The Glen and will consider returning whenever I am back in Blackpool.

We stayed at The Glen and found the service, cleanliness, location, hospitality and location all EXCELLENT! Mick and Connie (and puppy Roxy!) give a very warm welcome and we would recommend this Guest House to anyone and everyone. Having spent a huge amount of time online to try to find somewhere to stay, we are so pleased we came across The Glen. We have stayed in Blackpool before and experienced B&B at the other end of the scale - The Glen was a pleasant surprise! Could not fault breakfast either, top class. The entire hotel including our rooms were immaculate and very well decorated, it is obvious there has been a lot of time and attention spent on the finer details. Car Parking on site was also very handy. We will definitely be back!

Thank You Mick and Connie!! xx

This place is so modern and clean only opened in 2009. It has an excellent location and everthing is in walking distance. It also has its own car park. The owner are very friendly and helpful. It is much better than some of the cheaper hotel in blackpool.

We picked this guest house after spotting some fantastic reviews. It was refurbished and opened 1 yr ago and it really looked great compared to many of the tired looking places. The room was very clean and the linen, towels and soft furnishings were spotless. The guest house is centrally located to the Promenade so easy access to both ends. The hosts (Connie & Mick) are a lovely couple and made us all feel very welcome and really couldn't do enough for us. On arrival we were presented with discount vouchers for places to eat and taxis. We celebrated the 1 year opening with free drinks at their bar. Breakfast was great and the dining area was immaculate. The kids were made to feel so welcome with lots of friendly chat and DVDs supplied for bedtime viewing. Finally, we were treated to a lift to the train station by Mick to avoid us getting wet in the rain! Overall, we'd highly recommend this guest house and can't see how you can go wrong when the hosts are so happy to help!

Stayed with my wife, daughter, and her friend and were all absolutely delighted with the quality of this guest house. The rooms are spotless and the breakfast is top class. Mick and Connie obviously have a great pride in their business and they go out of their way to make you feel as if you are valued. Forget any nightmare story you hear about Blackpool B&Bs, The Glen is value for money and home from home. Highly recommended and will go back whenever in Blackpool.

We went to Blackpool for the Illuminations and to visit the Lakes with my inlaws. We received a very warm welcome from Mick at The Glen and we were very impressed by the guest house. Our room was very comfortable and immaculately clean. The breakfast was superb, top marks to Connie and we were all very happy we had chosen to stay here.The free parking was also very welcome given how difficult it can be to find a space in Blackpool. I would not hesitate to recommend the Glen to anyone looking for accommodation in Blackpool.

We have always used large Hotels when we have visited Backpool in the past, but decided to try a B+B for a change, and we are so glad that we did, because not only did we find a great holiday, but we also found two great friends in Mick and Connie. Nothing was too much trouble, the whole place was spotless, with immaculate bedding and towels, and the breakfast was perfect, freshly cooked, piping hot and plenty of it. We would definitely recommend that you try this Guest House, you even get your own parking space which is priceless in Blackpool where there are double yellow lines everywhere. Make sure that you go in the bar in the evening for a drink with Mick and Connie cause they are such great hosts and a nice relaxing chat with them in the bar is a wonderful way to finish each day. We will definitely be back and will recommend The Glen Guest House to all of our friends and family.
