Staying in a Bed and Breakfast in Blackpool
If you’re looking for somewhere with a little more charm and character than your average hotel or hostel, what should you go for? Well, there are plenty of types of unique accommodation in Blackpool, but we’d suggest choosing a bed and breakfast.
The biggest selling point is the value for money. Bed and breakfasts give you the same comforts you’re used to at home including a private room and bathroom as well as shared living spaces. One of the factors that make staying at a bed and breakfast so unique is the local hosts who offer insider tips and travel advice and will go out of their way to ensure you have a memorable stay in Blackpool. For this level of service, you may expect to pay a premium price, but no! Bed and breakfasts are much cheaper than hotels with the same, if not better, type of features!
Okay, you might be able to get a hostel for slightly cheaper, but it’s definitely worth splashing out that extra bit of cash to get your own space – whether you’re traveling solo, with your partner, or in a group of friends.
What to look for in a Bed and Breakfast in Blackpool
In your search for accommodation, you may wonder what to look for in a bed and breakfast in Blackpool. And the first factor to take into consideration is the location. You’ll want to be close to the town’s top attractions including the beaches, the Pleasure Beach theme park, and the Blackpool Tower. This is where all the action happens, so it may be a bit noisy, but the view of the promenade and sea will make up for it!
In your bed and breakfast, you can usually expect an en-suite bathroom, a double bed (maybe even two or perhaps bunk beds if you book a family room), a flat-screen TV, and tea and coffee making facilities. Most will serve breakfast – so do your research and see if you get a full English fry-up or a continental option. Either way, it will be delicious.
