Good 7.8 From 8 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
worth a try
It’s value for money, very friendly staff, and very close to the beach
Chun wah, gb2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Not a bad little bb for a nights stay. The couple are new I believe. No bar open due to a water leak which is fine. Cleanliness was a bit lacking and no towels left in the room. Shared bathroom looked as if it hand been clean in a while. ..for a very cheap room to just get your head down for a night then it's the place to be. Excellent location just a couple of streets from winter gardens. Good look in your new venture guys
Gillian, gb1 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
The hotel is in need of refurbishment but the room was clean an the bed comfy. Nearest car park is at the top of the street. The couple running the hotel were very nice and welcoming.

A Really Nice Week at the Merlin
I was in Blackpool for a music festival. Hotel is under new management. Worn, like many Blackpool BnB’s, but clean and comfortable and with a helpful and friendly staff. Slept great and would stay there again. WiFi was strong and never went down. Good English breakfast.
