Excellent value

I stayed at the Pelham Lodge in Blackpool for 3 nights.It is more a guest house than a hotel and I usually stay in hotels, so I was a bit worried what it would be like. I had no need to worry. The staff are all very welcoming and helpful when I asked about trams and tickets. The front door is locked and you get a key, so that there is no need to worry about random people coming in. My room was on the ground floor and was spacious with a huge ensuite with a Jacuzzi bath. I think it has recently been done up as it all seemed quite new, as did the double glazing. The room was clean with a wardrobe and loads of drawers. The tea tray was better than I've seem in some hotels, with different teas, coffee, hot chocolate, bottles of water and biscuits. The bed was comfortable although a bit soft for me. Breakfast was plentiful - lots of different types of cereal, yoghurts, fruit juice and cooked breakfasts to order - and the staff were very attentive ensuring that you always had enough toast and tea or coffee. The location is ideal, a five minute walk to the North Pier, but there isn't a lot of noise at night. It is also a five minute walk to the train station. I thought it was excellent value for money with a full breakfast included.
