"What a lovely hotel! Had a great weekend here, nice sized rooms, clean comfortable and excellent standard. Breakfast was also really good and the owners couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. Despite the hotel having no parking there is a very reasonabley priced carpark just a few minutes away."

A Definate Happy Return

"After a gap of almost 20 years we decided on a nostalgic trip to Blackpool.
The Happy Return had been independently recommended to us by two friends who had spent a fantastic week there during the summer. Both have young children of similar ages to ours so we thought we would give it a go!
Nothing could have been further from our old perceptions of how Blackpool guest houses and hotels used to be. Right from the outset we were very pleasantly surprised! On arrival we received a very warm welcome from the owner’s son and it was immediately apparent that nothing would be too much trouble. Our room was spacious, clean and well decorated. I can only describe The Happy Returns facilities as excellent! During our stay we took full advantage of the well prepared breakfasts and also the bar during the evening!
We would certainly recommend The Happy Return to anyone looking for a memorable long or short stay in the heart of Blackpool close to many amenities and attractions. We had opted to leave the car behind and travel there by train and other than two short taxi trips from and too the station we found everything within easy access on foot!"

"Our recent stay for 3 nights at the Happy Return Hotel with a family, proved to be excellent value for money and we would recomend this hotel to friends and family .

We were supprised with the warm welcome we recieved from our hosts Vicky and Neil and the fantastic food that we were presented with for a hotel in this price range, especially with 2 fussy children in tow.

Vicky & Neil had laid on very good entertainment during the evening which proved to be excellent and fully appropriate for the family.

The Hotel was spotless and comfortable, service was fantastic and the food was second to none."

"We booked 4 rooms for a family break to Blackpool in May for two nights. We were welcomed like old friends, on arrival, which was a great start to the weekend.
The hotel is one of many on the same road, but has been extensively renovated and it shows.
The rooms are recently redecorated and cosy (all ensuite), ours having a view of the Tower. Our party visited the pleasure beach, Tower, Winter Gardens and Piers whilst there.
The location is ideal for access to the beachfront, Tower, Winter gardens and town centre although parking near the hotel is limited.
The nearby Central car park has ample parking at a reasonable price.
The recently redecorated Lounge bar is warm and comfortable, offering a selection of draught and bottled beers, wines and spirits. Regular guest performers provide added entertainment, at no extra cost.
Breakfast was served by friendly helpful cheerful staff and quality was good with the full English, cereals, toast, tea and coffee.
We will happily return, to the Happy Return!"

not as expected

"The hotel was not as nice as expected, decor of bedrooms was shabby, toilet roll holder half hanging off the wall, shower mouldy, wardrobes falling apart.
It was reasonably clean and the staff friendly. Breakfast was fine although the dining room is too small to accommodate the guests.
The biggest problem with the location is that there is no parking and the nearest pay and display (about 3 minutes walk ) will cost you £10 per day , if you can find a space,so bare that in mind.
Because of this we will not visit again.Its worth mentioning the prices displayed in the window are cheaper than the web site prices and so if you are going there telephone direct and ask for a quote first."

"We really enjoyed our stay , the room was nice and clean , it was a bit on the small size but lets face it we were never in the room only to sleep in it. The breakfasts we had were really filling and nice and hot, and you can have free tea and coffee when ever you wanted. The hotel is very central for everything ,tower ,winter gardens etc.
The owners were nice and would come and have a chat with you. So yes we would return to the Happy Return.

"The location is great for central Blackpool - such a short walk to everything. The cooked breakfast in the morning was very tasty too and you could pick what items you like and didnt like etc.

It was quiet when we went so there was no noise but the room wasnt quite as good as I had hoped and was led to beleive from the pictures. It was rather small and the shower was difficult to use as again that was tiny. There were some nicer looking rooms we noticed as we travelled up and down the stair case.

The bed was comfy however and the breakfast serving times were good and once again the location was excellent.

I would consider staying here again but in a different room."
