Cheep and ok for the money .
Colin, gb1 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Avoid this place at all costs. Extremely disgusted by our stay, the whole place is disgusting and unclean, the sickening stench of weed being smoked and then trying to disguise with incense sticks. We left covered in flea bites, extremely tired and upset with what we experienced. There is no towels in the room, paint hanging off the walls, exposed wires, stains all over the walls and beds, beds broken, curtains hanging down, tvs dont work, doors dont lock, mould and rust around windows, no breakfast available, no bar as advertised. There is constant screaming and shouting day and night this includes the staff when arriving, no staff around to deal with any issues or give feedback to, a mobile number is given but no answer when called. I wish i looked further than the reviews on here for what the place is really like and would never have booked it. No way of getting a refund as uncontactable by myself and, no reply to messages left on answer phone and owners stay out of sight til everyone has checked out. Every person i came across in this place was upset, shocked and angry at the extremely poor conditions the owners had this place in!

Frankie, gb2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Cheap and cheerful
This was a cheap and cheerful place to rest our head for the night after a busy day exploring Blackpool. The landlady was lovely and went above and beyond to ensure the kids were comfortable and we had everything we needed. The accommodation is dated but was clean and perfect for what we needed. We payed £72 for 2 family rooms for the night, that’s less than £10 per person which you can’t really grumble about. It was the first time we have stayed in Blackpool and a B&B but overall we had a positive experience and the kids loved it. We will return.
