Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and we were made very welcome on our 2 night break. The rooms were lovely with a super family room facility as well. Breakfast was great... More

We spent last weekend at the Derwent via a Groupon gifted to us. Excellent value for money, room and bathroom very clean and breakfast lovely. Ran by the really friendly Chris and Rob, not forgetting Max their gorgeous dog! Should we return to Blackpool we will stay here again.

Firstly the attraction of this 'hotel' was the price, and, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Don't expect a hotel even though it's called the Derwent Hotel. It's really a guest house with 12 rooms available for hire. None of the rooms has a view to write home about. Our room was on the 3rd level... More
