Just back from The Mergin, Steve and Dawn made us feel very welcome. We enjoyed Breakfast on both mornings. The location at the North shore is ideal if like me you prefer to be out of the town yet is a short tram ride from all the attractions.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Merginn is situated in the North Shore area of Blackpool where you will find it quieter and more relaxing, yet still within easy reach of all Blackpool'€™s many attractions. Buses and trams stop each end of the Avenue. Gynn Avenue is a lovely quiet street close to the Gynn Square. We are only a 2 minute walk to the promenade, and just a mile back into town and the Tower. ... more   less
