Great weekend break
Good location, within walking distance of South & Central piers. Hosts were a pleasant couple and made sure we had everything we needed. There was plenty for breakfast, hot, cold or both if you could manage it. We would go back there if we return to Blackpool.

Very good 8,0
A pleasant place to stay for a short break
We enjoyed our stay at the Mercury over the weekend. The room was very clean and comfortable, the breakfast was tasty, and the hosts were friendly and helpful. The location is good, close to but not right on the front, and we managed to find a parking space on the street round the corner (though this might be rather more difficult to do at busier times).

Excellent hotel close to everything.
Spotless hotel with lovely welcome. Hosts could not do enough for us in order to make our stay special. Hotel quirky and clean. Good breakfast.

Great themed hotel, so friendly and welcoming
An amazing hotel that I can't recommend enough. So friendly and homely, and Anthony and Debs really do go out of their way to make you welcome. Great themed rooms.

Pleasant hotel by the promenade
The hotel is run by an extremely friendly couple. We were lucky enough to have a small rental car (Vauxhall Corsa), so it could *just* fit alongside their own car. This was a pleasant surprise, since we expected to have to use one of the many car parks in the area. We had another pleasant surprise when we got into our room (the superior suite), with a nice view of the sea. The bed had the best mattress I have slept in for a long while. The location is very good, just a block from the promenade. The occasional loud drunk may walk by in the night, but overall it is very quiet. Only minuses are a bit cramped room layout and temperamental hot water in the shower. It has to run for quite a while to stabilise.
