Just had a cheeky little break away with husband. Nothing is too much trouble. All the little touches makes this best stay in Blackpool by far. Dressing gowns in rooms. Amazing breakfast that is cooked by the fantastic host John so welcoming and attentive. Certainly will visit again if John can forgive me about the chocolate (sorry).

We,ve just had a really relaxed 2 night stay at the Glen. We cant find a fault with anything. The host John does all he can to help you enjoy your time in Blackpool with good local knowledge. The rooms are homely and the breakfast was hearty. Highly recomended. D
