First off I must say what fantastic hosts Steve and Elaine are you will struggle to find better I'm sure. The interior design of the Arthington is beautiful so much effort has been put into the design. The place is spotless really clean. We had room 8 which was absoulety perfect. Also all the rooms can be seen on their website with the virtual tour. They are all very modern with iphone docking stations. The breakfast was fantastic we had a full english which was impecable. No grease no fat just tasted superb and I felt like I had enjoyed a really healthy meal! Also cream cheese bagel with bacon was amazing! We spent 2 nights here for our anniversary and when we arrived a balloon with happy anniversary was waiting in our room. This was a lovely touch! The location is perfect as you are in the middle between both the tower and pleasure beach. You will not be disapointed with the Arthington! We will be returning for sure! I would recommend calling directly to book as I believe there are some advantages when doing this.

We had a great weekend staying at the Arthington. Steve and Elaine were extremely helpful and pleasant. Our room was spotless and well equipped. This B&B has many little touches that make it even better than some of the larger hotels we have stayed in.
Brian & jean Ewan on 13th Apr 2013
Seriously a lovely place to stay. Friendly owners who take an interest without being intrusive. Super clean. Beautiful food and gorgeous taste in decor.

Guest on 16th Nov 2012
Excellent guest house. Fab decor throughout. Steve and Elaine were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was superb! We would highly recommend this place to stay.
Susan Bickerstaff on 16th Nov 2012
Very warm and friendly – location good as it is just off the prom with tram stop at bottom of road and so good for access to either the pleasure beach or the tower
Lesley Smith on 8th Nov 2012
Booked a single and 2 double rooms. The rooms were absolutely immaculate. We were met with a smile and tea and biscuits then shown to our rooms when we were ready. As the weekend progressed, the service only got better. Magnificent breakfast and the fresh fruit was something to behold. The biggest reccommendation I can give is that I would stay here again and not consider aywhere else.
Neil Brealey on 8th Nov 2012
After travelling up from Essex We found the Arthington spotlessly clean, very modern with with lots of clever interior design features. Steve and Elaine delivered first class service.We will certainly go back and would highly recommend this guest house.

An excellent place to stay with the best breakfast of any hotel or B&B that I've ever stayed at.
Dawn Kirby on 7th Aug 2012

Rowan Dickson on 9th Jul 2012
Was made to feel at home instantly, the breakfast was vast and very enjoyable. The room was equipped with everything I may need, including a small vanity set, a sewing kit, a hair drier and much more. The service at breakfast was extremely quick. Our order was taken and served within 5 minutes.
John Howlett on 30th Jun 2012
I have been at a few B&Bs and Guesthouses and I must say the Arthington was by far the best Steve and Elaine were great hosts, they could not do enough for us, the super king room we stayed in was sheer luxury, the food was first class and plentiful , We will return to Blackpool and the Arthington will be where we will be staying, close to all attractions, Fantastic place to stay
Steven Richardson on 7th Jun 2012
We had a fantastic time when we stayed at the Arthington, Steve and Elaine were so helpful and the hotel was spotless and so beautifully decorated. I couldn't fault The Arthington in any way an we are looking forward to a return visit.
None at all.
James Hill on 7th Jun 2012
What a great welcome from Steve & Elaine at the Arthington. Rooms are comfortable and modern and spotlessley clean. Location is perfect, slap bang in between the Pleasure Beach and The Tower. Breakfast is fantastic and Steve and Elaine can't do enough for you, from restaurant reocmmendations to keeping your luggage if you are leaving late. Don't bother looking elsewhere!
Severine Bekaert on 7th Jun 2012
everything was SUPER!!! the breakfast was very good!!very friendlyowners!!
Guest on 25th May 2012
An excellent choice for visiting the Blackpool area. Steve and Elaine were just wonderful and friendly. The location is good. The breakfast was good and plentiful. When we arrived, we upgraded to a larger room and were quite happy.
The mattress is very soft and I have back problems so I like a firmer mattress, but after a full day of sightseeing I had no trouble getting to sleep.
Melissa Hulme on 5th May 2012
Stayed in the King Suite Room.. Absolutley gorgeous room, bed was really well made up and very comfy, bathroom was clean to the highest standards. Staff were really welcoming and helpful.
Breakfast was a little too early for us and also bar didn't have specific open and closing times and was always closed when we returned at night
Guest on 14th Apr 2012
Rooms were well decorated to a very high standard.Staff were very welcoming.Food was excellent, and bar meals available on demand without prior ordering.Breakfast to go option if early start needed.
Nothing bad to say!
Rebecca Torrens on 14th Apr 2012
The Hotel and rooms were wonderful and the breakfast perfect and substantial. A great deal of care has gone into the appearance which is contemporary and beautifully co-ordinated. Everything was of a high standard. I can't fault it in anyway. I will be recommending it to people I know.
Do not have any the hotel was excellent

Had a very nice stay. Lovely hotel and fantastic people, would go back again and again.
Guest on 30th Nov 2011
I had the B&B recommended as a friendly venue of better quality than many of the other local venues. I wasn't disappointed. The venue is clean and well furnished and the owners (Steve and Elaine) are very very friendly and really helpful
The dining area is a little on the small side but this is a minor point.
Joshua Sutherland on 30th Nov 2011
This is my 3rd stay at this hotel over a 3 year period and it still does not disappoint, I do not look anywhere else in the area when making a yearly trip to blackpool. The staff cannot do enough to make you feel welcome, the service is great, food is good value and high quality, rooms are clean and outfitted to a high standard. I have heard some horror stories about hotels in this part of the world, this is not amongst them, highly highly recomended, I shall be going back next year.
Deborah Spence on 13th Nov 2011
Never stayed here before but will definately be returning! It was lovely, Steve & Elaine were fabulous hosts. Breakfast was freshly cooked and was 1st class, accomodation modern and very clean, location ideal, you won't be disappointed, don't look anywhere else!
Karen Whitehouse on 8th Nov 2011
Everything about the Arthington is positive, no negatives what so ever. My parents will be going again next year which will be their 5th time and we will definitely be returning next year for our 3rd time.
Tracy Woodward on 19th Oct 2011

Had a fabulous 4 night stay and would definitely return. Steve and Elaine are lovely people and very helpful with advice on where to go and what to do. Room was beautifully decorated as is the rest of the place. Breakfast was also excellent. Can't recommend this hotel enough.
Stepan Bogdanic on 13th Aug 2011
very friendly staff excellent heavy breakfast good central location
Guest on 4th Aug 2011
As soon as we arrived at the hotel for our weekend in blackpool, the owners staright away gave us a nice and friendly welcome. The room we were given was beautifully decorated with all the neccessities needed. There was also a good selection when having breakfast. The location of the hotel was ideal with only a few minutes walk to the south pier and pleasure beach fair. And about 15 minutes walk to the other piers, shops and other attractions. Will certainly be booking again at this place, and would recommend it to others.

A brilliant B&B which is great value for money. The location is great and both Elaine and Steve are brilliant hosts.
None at all.
Guest on 5th Jul 2011
Fantastic lovely decor everywhere very clean, breakfast is spot on!! Steve and Elaine are great hosts very friendly and helpful. Would highly recomend.
Only 1 small downside the double room we had was a bit snug, but to be honest that is only a personal thing!!

Christopher Hilton on 17th May 2011
what a fantastic hotel and service! We were initially worried about staying in Blackpool but within minutes of meeting Steve and Elaine our fears were allayed. The rooms were modern, comfortable and clean, the food was wonderful and to top it off fantastic company also. Would definately recommend to anyone!

Guest on 1st Mar 2011
A very homely welcome from Steve & Elaine. Ultra modern decor throughout the hotel. Steve, was extremely knowledgable on all the local amenities of Blackpool, shows, restaurants, etc. All food was top quality and delicious, and evening meals were very well priced. Room very clean and comfortable. Beds where very warm and comfy. All in all a very highly recommended hotel, located on the best road in Blackpool.
None come to mind.
Stephanie Hayden on 9th Feb 2011
Second time me and my partner have stayed at this hotel, and it was yet again an amazing stay! elaine and steve were so much help and friendly, Will definately be returning sometime this year! The hotel also looks stunning, the food was lovely and the service was excellent. thankyou for a lovely stay x
Vadim Fedotov on 18th Nov 2010
Great interior design, very clean and organized...great breakfast. The couple that run this place are amazing, friendly people...warm, cozy place with a great look and good location.
not a negative comment just as an advice if traveling with a significant other a double room will be a bit small...get the bigger suite...but as i said above the place is very nice
Guest on 17th Nov 2010
steve and elaine really make you feel at home,the hotel is beautiful we couldnt have asked for more and loved every minute thank you we will be returning soon.
Laura Pearson on 9th Oct 2010
First of all the Hotel itself if absolutely amazing! Steve and Elaine are wonderful people and have really put a lot of effort into making their hotel as perfect as can be for anyone from couples to families. Me and my Boyfriend stayed there for a weekend and we enjoyed every minute, there wasn't a single problem with our stay and despite being close to both the pleasure beach and the town centre and the Blackpool Tower we were able to get parking and peace and quiet at night.
The room was absolutely stunning! I saw the pictures of the rooms before we went there but i was overwhelmed with the beauty, cleanliness and design of the rooms. The bedroom was perfect, Steve and Elaine had even supplied several pillows to the bed which varied in texture allowing you to have a pillow that suited your needs. The rooms were decorated with full consideration to how your stay could be benefitted, from tiny details such as the coat hangers being both stylish and fitting the theme of the room while maintaining perfect functionality, such as being of a material texture to prevent clothes from slipping off. Such thoughtful considerations made our stay all the more perfect.
Sleeping in the bed was a dream! It was a good size double and made you want to just lay in all day. The bathroom was wonderful and kept in immaculate condition and we really appreciated the little extras Steve and Elaine provided for us. The service was incredible, although we ddin't eat much breakfast ourselves what we did have was fantastic and it was really nice that Steve and Elaine provided such ample choice of food and always checked to make sure we had everything we wanted.
The Arthington is a fantiastic hotel, it's beautiful and efficient and i love that it boasts one of the rare commodities that are often lost on most places, and that is that Steve and Elaine don't just run it as a business focused only on money making, they actually genuinely care for your needs and are incredibly considerate and kind people. It was a pleasure to meet them and their lovely dog! Overall The Arthington is the best hotel i've ever been to and it will always be my favourite! It really was perfect. 5*!
I really cannot think of any negativities to the Hotel. Although it could have done with a time-space vortex allowing us to stay there for longer! :D
Katy Hall on 8th Sep 2010
A lovely hotel, made really welcome by lovely hosts. Clean, nice food, lovely rooms, could not have been better. My little girl loved Tanya! Many Thanks xxx

Very welcoming and sociable staff & dog. Very nice contemporary design, with 5 star cleanliness. Excellent breakfast, something for everyone and very accomodating.
Susan Miller on 28th Jun 2010
We took our two grandchildren for a two night stay at the Arthington, we received a very warm wellcome on arrival. The hotel was spotlessly clean. The room was very nice, there was a very good choice for breakfast and the food was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble at this lovely hotel, best we have stayed at and will definately stay there again.
Stephen Graham on 28th Jun 2010
Stopped in many hotels in Blackpool on a annual basis and Steve & Elaines Arthington by far the best, food accommodation excellent would highly recommend whenever the situation arises. Thankyou for a lovely stay. Steve/Carol
Heather Priestley on 15th Jun 2010
I’ve been going to Blackpool for numerous years and this as to be the best hotel we have stayed in. From the moment we arrived to be met by Steve and Elaine, we were made to feel welcome and so at home. The hotel is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and the food was excellent.
Steve and Elaine are fabulous hosts; they really do go the extra mile to be helpful and welcoming. The location of this hotel is great too - a few yards from the sea and tram stops and on a quiet street. I cannot fault anything with this little gem of a hotel – We will be definitely back and have already recommended this to our friends and family.
Thanks for a lovely weekend
Theresa Maginn on 26th May 2010
The hotel is absolutely fantastic cannot wait till return, I stayed by myself on the Friday night and it wasnt uncomfortable at all was made very welcome!!! Steve and Elaine are above and beyond good hosts, the rooms and hotel are immacutatley clean the road is nice and quiet and is in the centre off the Golden mile , breakfast was wonderfull , can not praise the hotel and Steve Elaine enough, go and meet them for yourselfs it is a pure pleasure !
Guest on 16th May 2010
Hotel was modern and relatively cheap for what we got. Also, very clean, friendly and food was lovely.
if i am being really picky...slightly noisey (internally) but nothing to worry about, rooms are relatively small, breakfast has a half hour slot
Guest on 13th Apr 2010
Came with my fiance and two friends with their young daughters. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Steve and offered tea and coffee and made to feel welcome. We were then introduced to his wife Elayn and one of the best dogs in the world, Tanya. The hotel from the outside is probably the smartest and most modern looking on the street, and this is continued inside. The bar is fresh and modern but with a warm and relaxing feel. The room my fiance and I stayed in was small but met it's needs. The bed was too comfortable tho so we struggled to drag ourselves up in the morning for breakfast. But it was worth it tho as there was a large choice all freshly cooked and made to order. On Easter morning we were even treated to Cadbury's Creme Eggs underneath the coffee cups. Bless them. The parking on the street could be better but there is a private car park on the next street which works out at good value at around £5 per day. When we return to Blackpool (hopefully for the illuminations) we will definately make a bee-line for The Arthington with no hesitations. Enjoy
Guest on 7th Apr 2010
elaine and steve were perfect hosts, could,nt fault them or their hotel. we travelled with friends who also stayed in the hotel also, they also recommend. very clean and would definately stay again.
Guest on 2nd Apr 2010

Guest on 21st Mar 2010
My husband and I just enjoyed a two night stay at The Arthington and we could not fault it AT all. From the moment you arrive you feel like part of the family as Steve and Elaine are the perfect hosts and are very welcoming - they offered us a tea or coffee as we arrived, which we thought was a lovely gesture. The (premier) room was fantastic - beautifully decorated and clean with a great flat screen TV and even an iPod docking station!! Breakfast was brilliant - we both fully recommend the Full English cooked to order and I especially recommend 'The Arthington Snowfall' which is a gorgeous concoction of fresh yoghurt, fresh fruit and granola with the option of honey. Also, don't even hesitate staying in to eat as the food is delicious!! We sat in the bar on our last night and watched the TV with Steve, Elaine and Tanya the Dog whilst having a cheeky wee drink or two and it honestly just felt like a home from home!! The location is also fantastic - situated between the pleasure beach and the tower and you only have a 2 minute walk from the front door to the promenade!! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!!
Guest on 17th Feb 2010
I stayed with my boyfriend, on valentines weekend, and it was brilliant! This was my second stay in the arthington, and i cant say anything bad about it. Steve and Elaine really friendly, nothing is too much for them. They go out of their way to make you feel right at home! Breakfast is amazing, really worth dragging yourself out of bed for! When we went out for dinner, they were very helpful at directing us to the restaurant and anywhere else we needed to go. We also stayed in the hotel one night for dinner, where the food was tasty, and again anything we needed was never too much for them. We will definately be back at this hotel. I wouldn't go anywhere else if i was staying in Blackpool, The Arthington is perfect!
