Had a great time at this b&b, lovely caring hosts, breakfast was superb, rooms clean and tidy, but chilly at night but had a great night sleep. Highly recommend, great place to stay and great location (5 minute walk from pleasure beach) south pier just across the road. Couldn't fault the place.

I spent the week in this hotel and the staff are very friendly. The hotel is spotless with lots of little extras in the room. The breakfast was amazing. On the water front facing the beach and right beside the pleasure beach so in a perfect location.

Stayed 2 night's at the sounds hotel visiting Blackpool to walk the big one. Moe made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. Location is by South pier which is ideal for all Blackpool attrations. Rooms were very clean and an excellent full breakfast each morning with very friendly and personal service. Excellent stay

We stayed here recently for 4 days and it has been the most comfortable and calm stay. Moe and Jimmy are so polite and friendly, as are the kitchen staff. I couldn't have stayed in a better place and the view from the family room is spot on. Big spacious rooms and so clean and tidy
