Thank you for the review and recommending us. It was a pleasure to meet you both. After talking to you both at reception I can see that your score reflected upon the size of the room, I must admit it was nice to get constructive feedback from yourselves rather than use a forum to do it. I can see from... More

What a fantastic place. Lovely room for the weekend, friendly helpful and very knowledgeable owners and probably the best breakfast in Blackpool. If you are planning a visit to Blackpool, look no further!

My husband and I have just returned from a lovely couple of days at "By the Seaside". We were in superior room 8. We could not fault the room. Great size, spotless and very tastefully decorated. We were a bit wary before we came as we had not heard of the B and B before but what a great find!... More

What a beautiful hotel! Hilary and Kim were amazing. Stunning room (room 8) with loads of themed decorations. The food was delicious. The bar was brilliant too: plenty of choice and plenty of space to chill out in the evenings and play card games etc. I would definitely go back (I'm pretty sure I will)! Highly recommended.

Excellent location - just a few mins from the beach. We were in the superior room - tasteful, clean, airy. A biggie for me was the fresh smell, in particular the bedding. Many places are let down by the smell of the bedding, but here everything was clean and fresh. In the bathroom we found shower gel, shampoo, shower caps,... More
