The Dragonfly is a typical Blackpool bed and breakfast. What was not typical was the service provided by hosts Paul and Adam. A lovely couple who made me feel so welcome. I was there on a room only basis but was offered breakfast if I wanted it for just £5. I had breakfast on my last morning and it was...

The hotel was very much the same as most of Blackpool's guest house hotels. Small rooms located upstairs above a dining room/ bar area. The guys who run the place are friendly and the cook a really nice breakfast with a variety of options. The reason for the average rating is purely price. I have stayed in plenty of these...

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that enjoyed our home cooked breakfast. In terms of price we are competitive with other Visit England four star rated guest accommodation in the area. We are always happy to negotiate a room price that includes breakfast if guests telephone us or drop us an email. yours Adam and Paul

Stayed for New year. What a fantastic hidden gem. Adam & Paul were terrific hoists. BF was great value for money. Rooms were spotless. The only reson I never gave full marks,was the small double was really small. I would highly recommend this guest house, but pay the extra & go for the larger room

Adam and Paul are a very welcoming couple. Nothing is too much. They will happily chat with you and recommend places to visit and eat. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. There is obvious pride taken in running the dragonfly.
