Stayed on a Saturday night at the Alumhurst with 2 friends. We had room 2 (twin) and room 14 (double). Both rooms were absolutely spotless and decorated in a contemporary way. Only small downside was the size on the shower but otherwise the rooms were impeccable.

The hotel itself is based just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of town and although I was slightly worried about potential noise issues I can honestly say that I wasn't disturbed at all even though my room faced out onto the street.

The best thing about this hotel though is it's owner Pat. From the moment my reservation was taken I knew that we were going to be really looked after. Nothing was too much trouble for Pat, including trying to sort out a last minute limo and glasses and ice for our afternoon drinks. She really went out of her way to make us feel very welcome.

All in all I would recomend this hotel whole heartedly for anyone looking for a friendly and inexpensive break with a little bit of class thrown in.

My girlfriend and I came to stay at the hotel as a special weekend away. However, we were very disappointed with the quality of our room. We booked a premier room, believing that this would be different from other guesthouses in Blackpool. When we arrived the staff were initially very helpful, but when shown to our room we felt let down. The room was small, with very basic facilities, and had not been hoovered. I would recommend anyone who plans to stay here to not pay over the odds...this is no different to any other B&B.

My girlfriend and I come over from Prague every year for the Northern Soul weekender at Blackpool Tower in November. Over the last few years the B&B's that we have had have been a bit hit and miss despite what has been written on Tripadvisor.
But the Alumhurst meets it's reviews quite happily.

We had a standard double room on the 3rd floor. There is a lift in the hotel and on the landing of each floor there is an iron and ironing board which is a nice touch.
The room had the standard things such as tea and coffee facilities (and a hair dryer for the ladies!). There is also a flat screen TV on the wall that has all of the freeview channels.

There are parking slots out the front and I believe there are a few at the back of the hotel as well. Very useful seeing as there is no free parking anywhere in Blackpool.

We didn't eat in the hotel at night time or use the bar but if breakfast was anything to go by then I wouldn't worry.
Breakfast was a smooth operation as rather than the hotel owners doing all the rushing around and cooking they actually employ kitchen staff and waiting staff who were friendly and chatty but without being 'in your face'.
Fair breakfast choice with cereal, fruit juice, tea or fresh ground coffee and a full English that consisted of fried bread, mushrooms, bacon, choice of egg, tomato and beans along with basket full of toast. And it's not a 'set' choice either as I asked for 4 sausages, beans and a poached egg.

Location is good with the hotel being less than 2 minutes walk to the seafront and arcades and Tower but far enough away so that it is quiet at night time ( our room was street facing ).

So all in all a great little hotel that is welcoming and clean and not what you usually expect from a Blackpool hotel. Book it with no worries and enjoy your stay!
