Made very welcome right from the start. Beautiful & clean, smashing full English every morning. Definitely stay there again. Tram 50 yards away. Bought a three day pass, so we could just get on & off as we pleased.

We have just had another great 2 night stay at The Craigmore,with Karen and Richard as our wonderful hosts. We were looked after brilliantly, as always, with the accommodation and breakfasts being superb. The hotel is close to the promenade, with trams and buses nearby. Great location and only minutes away from the town's facilities.

Family stay 2 over 60's 2 30's and a 11 yr old. The hotel is fine though a little dated. Needs a good refurb but still the rooms are ok. The shower was useless and went freezing cold if you took the shower head from the holder, room was a bit "pongy" that good old musty smell.! Breakfast was fine...

Comfortable room with the usual facilities. A good breakfast well presented. Tram stop at the end of the road I suggest you use it as a long walk to main seafront ( get the 24hr pass well worth a fiver) Great hosts

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Karen and Richard would like to welcome you to The Craigmore, where our care and attention to detail has resulted in us being awarded the AA''s Prestigious Red Diamond award for four years running. Our recent upgrade to four stars makes us one of only five AA four star rated establishments in Blackpool. Our excellent location (being south facing and over-looking Gynn Gardens and the sea) is adjacent to Blackpool's North Promenade and popular coastal walks. All front rooms have the benefit of sea views. We are convenient for both tram and bus services that are located at the end of the road. Rest assured in the knowledge that we only trade on families, couples and mature adults only. The Craigmore is a no smoking, residentially licensed, family run private guesthouse. ... more   less
