My partner and I have just had a lovely weekend break at no. 42 . The hotel was immaculate, the décor was very attractive, the welcome and service faultless. Nothing was too much trouble. The landlady, Anne, was a friendly lovely lady. The room we had was spacious and the king-size bed was very comfortable . We would have no...

We stayed at number 42 whilst attending a party at the Hilton. It was clean, warm and comfortable on a very chilly weekend. Ann wasn't in when we arrived as she was welcoming her 19th grandchild! No worries though we were shown to our lovely room by her brother in law (sea view). The room was great with lots of...

I really can not fault the overall stay we had at Number 42, if anything it excelled our expectations. My wife and I have stayed in many guest houses, b&b"s, and hotels, and like many of you reading this have been disappointed with cleanliness, decor, food, service. The owner, Ann, has high standards and is the nicest lady you could...

Thank you for that lovely review, so pleased you both enjoyed your stay. We are perfectly based here just far enough away from town, in a quiet area so you can get a good nights rest. Glad you liked the breakfasts we try to buy local fresh food as this always tastes better. We look forward to a return visit....

Not much to add about this top quality B&B that hasn't already been said. We stayed in the Seaview suite which was excellent in every way, spotlessly clean, well furnished and included loads of little unexpected extras. We were greeted with coffee and cake on arrival. Hosts were fantastic, breakfast was great and set you up for the day. In...

Another fantastic stay at the Number 42, this was our 3rd time here and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Blackpool. Ann really does go out her way to make your stay as special as possible. Nothing is too much trouble. The place is modern, clean and rooms are very spacious. Breakfast is amazing! Looking forward to our next stay. Xx

Stayed for 5 nights for the punk fest at the winter gardens. Warm greeting and comfy bed with a great breakfast. Special mention for the local Butcher's sausage and black pudding. The star of the show is Audrey the matriarch of the establishment (now retired). Please say hello to her for me?
