Got ANOTHER great reception from Janet, who looks after you like a member of the family. Hotel is ideally located, just a couple of minutes walk to the Prom and The Tower, as well as the town centre. Great home cooked food as always. Lovely comfortable beds & superb powerful showers.

We booked for 2 nights with our Yorkshire Terrier Sasha, nice friendly welcome from Janet, room and hotel really great but weather very cold and we are used to heat at home so did not sleep well plus dog not settling so returned home after 1 night but not before eating a fantastic breakfast. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This is a great place to stay in Blackpool. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The only thing I would say is could you change the duvets please to a king size as they are quite small for a double bed. That really is the only thing a matter. Lovely and clean the breakfast, a full English is smashing...

Thank you for your review. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay! The duvets are full-sized double duvets but next time I buy new bed-linen, I'll get king-size duvets to allow a little more wriggle room!

4 of us have just returned from a 2 night break at The Cameo. A lovely guesthouse, which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Janet was very welcoming and showed us to our rooms, making sure we knew how things worked. Of the 2 rooms we had, one was slightly bigger that the other but both had en suit bathroom,...

it is 28 years since we were last at Blackpool and it has improved with age but still has the magic. there are some run down areas but the main promenade and surrounding area is fine. The Cameo is a great place to stay and in an excellent location, just behind the Tower. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Lovely B&B in an ideal location in Blackpool, easy walking distance to the beach and main attractions. Rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is excellent, with the vegan option an added bonus.
