The hotel was very clean and welcoming with pleasant decor and fixtures (Oldy-Worldy Blackpool). The room itself was nicely decorated and had all the expected facilities (towels, hairdryer, ironing board / iron, tea / coffee etc) and a couple that weren't expected (Dressing gowns, Bits 'n' Bobs box, marshmallows for the hot chocolate).
The owner was nice and very chatty. She obviously takes great pride in her hotel and it shows.
Breakfast was nice with a choice of cereals, yogurts, toast, full English with fresh OJ, coffee and tea available.
If there was a criticism it was more about the area than the hotel. It's in the more run-down end of town and consequently the properties nearby are in need of TLC to raise the image of the area.
I suppose the main question to be answered is; Would we go back? Definitely YES.
