Stayed here for 1 night, lovely clean basic hotel. Comfortable beds, had a good nights sleep. Continental breakfast (cereal, fruit, yogurts, croissants and toast). Great Central location. Would definitely stay again. Good for low budget

It's one of the best hotels for average budget people . Nice accommodation with good breakfast. WiFi is good. Rooms are clean and nicely made beds. It's on a fine road and quite near to the beach. Lunch and dinner places are nearby.

I didn't have breakfast, so cannot commend on that. The owner was friendly and accommodating, but the room itself was not at all worth the money it cost for the stay. The room was tiny, with a bunk bed, even though it was listed and booked as a twin. Looking up at the top bunk, some of the slats were...

Paid extra for a room with private bathroom, was well worth it- Bed was huge, room was spotless. Hotel is in a great location,just down the road from coral island amusement arcade and close to the main bars in Blackpool. Owner seemed really friendly,did what he could to make our stay more pleasurable.
