Brilliant guest house spent 4 nights here, room was lovely and very clean. Breakfast was fantastic and John was very accommodating regardless of the issue throughout our stay, and he is also extremely passionate about his business. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone looking to visit Blackpool.

So pop in for a drink before going to explore what Blackpool has to offer.
