We stayed here for one night on 17th September 2016. We stayed in room 6 which was perfectly adequate. This was a last minute booking and Margaret couldn't be more helpful or nice. Breakfast was hearty and tasty. Will be back.

It took us about 25 minutes to walk to the Blackpool tower, although it's about a 1 hour walk to the pleasure beach. The breakfast...

Margaret is a wonderful woman and caters for all your needs, rooms are spotless and the full breakfast in the morning could not be better, probably the best little hotel in Blackpool and the price is unbeatable
