Just back from a few nights in Blackpool where we stayed at this lovely B&B.

I went here with my mother on a Groupon deal £50 for 2 night bed and breakfast, I found this was fantastic value for money, breakfast was very nice my personal opinion is that the meat quality is not very good but that could just be my personal taste and have nothing to do with the hotel.

Greeted by one of the very friendly and helpful owners who informed us of nearest cash machines, parking and breakfast times/options. Room and bathroom were very clean, beds really comfortable, lots of space for clothes and plenty of tea and coffee. Breakfast was excellent (best I've had from a B&B) owners both present and helpful at breakfast. Full English/veggie breakfast,...

We stayed here on a 3 day Wowcher deal and got a very clean room with en-suite, plenty of tea and coffee provided and an excellent breakfast. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful so couldn't fault it at the price. You have to provide your own towels, but we knew that before we came, so no problem...
