If i just start by saying we did not stay in this Hotel we had already booked into another hotel close by but we stumbled across this hotel whilst looking for some dinner and Hogmanay entertainment close to where we were staying as we have a 4 year old and didn't fancy going right into the centre of Blackpool.

I have been to the headlands on many occassions and have never had a problem yet. The staff are fantastic and friendly and the quality of rooms are something brilliant. Great location near pleasure beach and only a few mins walk from harrowside village, one downside is that meals are a bit rushed but ideal for a short break. if... More

We wanted a place for one night in the Blackpool area, this was ideal. Comfortable and clean bedroom, we had a sea view with balcony. Breakfast was excellent and catered for all tastes. We also enjoyed the bar in the evening and the lounge where we played cards - there was also a snooker table available. It is worth noting... More

My wife would have hated the decor but basics like bed, clean good quality bedlinen, towels etc were good. Clean, warm and an excellent traditional cooked breakfast served on a hot plate that would shame 4*/5* hotels. One suggestion, bigger and better curtains in room 2A would be a worthwhile investment.

The welcome was warm and friendly.The food - oh the food! If you book a stay here go for the half board option. Great food and all home-cooked. The location is perfect for families as it is at the quieter end of town. The tram stop is opposite and the attractions are within easy reach. If we were to visit... More
