at last we've found somewhere we would recommend in Blackpool, no more need to visit blackpool but stay in St Annes or Lytham,. Excellently located but quiet, couldn't have a nicer welcome - John is very obliging, lovely decor, rooms perfect though compact (if you want a large bedroom with masses of space this is not for you) but if...

From arriving on Friday night John the proprietor could not make you feel more welcome, checked in, he even helped take our luggage to the room. Well organised for the selection of breakfast, room small but clean and adequate ideally placed just off the promenade near central pier. Great value for money
