I stayed here on my own (friends were dotted around nearby) and it was really lovely. I was given a very warm welcome, and was well looked after (thank you Hilary and Kim). The room was beautifully decorated and very clean as too was the ensuite shower room. Lovely crisp white linen on the bed and white fluffy towels and...

Thank you Lucy Child for taking the time to write this lovely review. I always make sure lone traveller's are made to feel welcome especially at breakfast time.

Lovely clean room. Hilary made every effort with decor, comfort and cleanliness. We even had breakfast in bed. All for a really cheap price. I would really recommend this and is my favourite place I've stayed in in the last 5 years. Thank you.

Thank you Vickst for the review, I know it's 3 month's ago now but better late than never!. It saddens me when people have lost their faith in Blackpool or had a bad experience with their previous visits to the resort. If you decide to come to Blackpool again I'm sure you will be well impressed with all the new...

The hotel is in a quiet street close to the beach and south of the centre of town so you avoid the stage and hen party crowds. The hotel is beautifully kept, which is not the case of a lot of the small hotels in Blackpool, which seem to be run down. Charming hosts that helped us enjoy the pleasures...

Hilary the land lady of the Clovelly hotel, is warm, friendly, and clearly puts a great deal of effort into this bed and breakfast. The rooms are clean, modern, beds comfortable, bathrooms were high standards, with a very clean fesh feeling throughout. Little touches like bottled water in the rooms, a bath robe (only one between two people) and choices...
