My family and I have stayed at the Sunset every time we go to Blackpool. Malcolm & Jacqui made us feel like we were staying with family. The food how ever is likely to make you put on loads of weight as Jacqui doesn't seem to understand what a small portion is, and the food is such that you have... More

My partner and I have stayed in many hotels and guest houses but we have never known a place like the Sunset.

Based upon reviews on this site, I stayed at the Sunset over the Blackpool Magicians' Convention in February 2014. I have stayed in lots of places in Blackpool over the several years I have attended the above, but I have never found perfection before!

The best guest house I have stayed in in Blackpool (I have stayed in a lot). Very clean and friendly. Good breakfast, which you choose on check in. Great value for money. Even a sewing kit was provided. You don't need to ask the time as there are hundreds of clocks in the lounge. I will be back again soon.
