Inside our room really needed updating, it was very tired. We thought this due to things such as burn holes in the tired duvet cover, knob missing on the desk draws, stains and holes in carpet and just things like really old kettle and shower but worked fine. We weren't a fan of breakfast really. My boyfriend had a full...

Spent 3 nights here with my 10 year old. We had a twin room on the second floor which was very small and badly in need of updating. On the plus side it was warm, beds were comfy and there was plenty of hot water. We also appreciated the lift to all floors. The hotel had parking but I was...

Just come home from a fantastic two days in Blackpool! Spent only one night at Helmshore but starting to wish we'd stayed longer! Hotel was great and the lady owner was fantastic, went out her way to make you feel very welcome. Not often the case in most hotels being a single mum with two kids but made to feel...

I booked this place as a surprise weekend away for me & my fiancé. It was at very short notice so I was surprised there were still vacancies. I was very disappointed. The place in like being stuck in a 70's time warp. The owners weren't very friendly at all and you barely see them. The mattress was awful! It...

Just got back from staying here for 3 nights. Lovely hotel and a lovely family that run it. They along with their staff can't do enough for you. The breakfasts must be the best in Blackpool. We will be back again next year. Love Karen and Louise 😀

I booked 11 rooms for my fiancees birthday night out in Blackpool. The owners were very helpful before and during our stay. The hotel, whilst basic, is very good value for money. The rooms were clean, the showers were hot and the breakfast was good. It is well located 5 minutes walk from Blackpool tower. The pleasure beach is a...

Adult weekend away had standard room which was small but adequate for a base and our needs possibly not for everyone though. Service, food and cleanliness exceptional. Would highly recommend and do intend to return. Lift is a bonus.
