This is a fairly typical old hotel/B&B for Blackpool. The family who run it are very friendly and approachable, and have a couple of parrots by the front door, which was a nice surprise. To be honest, the building needs some work doing (our floor was sloping, the bathroom door slid difficultly, and there were patches of damp on the ceiling, despite fresh decor), but it's clear that great pride is taken in the day-to-day running; the room was immaculately clean and cosy.
Downstairs is a games room and bar, with pool table.
Breakfast was very nice too, cooked to order.
This is less than 10 minutes from Blackpool South station, in the quieter part of the town, and is therefore easy to reach. The Golden Mile is about 5 minutes away.
I would not hesitate to consider staying here again.
