School's out, work is on pause and the cottage industry is closed for Christmas. It's finally here after months of waiting and we're all beside ourselves with excitement.
The bags are packed (with space to spare thanks to Annette's frugal choice of clothes) and we have even managed to find room for Ellie much to Esther's relief.
We've got so many exciting new experiences ahead of us crammed into a 7 week trip. South East Asia here we come!
... to hit rush hour traffic and we have another pickup...it's a bit late to be going now...in fact, I don't think there is any point in going, you must be really stupid to book a taxi at this hour." Ok the last but was made up but I have never felt so small. Being a mature sensible adult, I felt this was a statement of rhetoricalness, so opted for the 'unimpressed stare with no verbal response' approach. Knowing that Charlotte, my control freak of a wife who hates ...
... to contend with cancelled trains and major crowds. Upper lips remained stiffened, however, and beyond some chaos and misinformation, all remained calm. We fully expected to have to remain in Bath another night and forego our Liverpool hotel reservation. Through some major luck, we heard that one train was going to get through, and although we didn’t have reservations, we threw caution to the wind, jumped onboard in hopes that we wouldn’t be ...
... machine which was pretty funny. Today went back into the city and checked out the maritime museum as they had a 100th anniversary of the sinking of the titanic exhibit which was really cool. Had a quick goosey gander in the museum then wandered along the harbour to the Atlantic monument then back into the city taking pics here and there. Here we are on the train back to London. Weekends go way too fast! Till next post Toodaloo ...
... the woods on one side, sand dunes on another with trees lining the whole of the walking areas. When we walked over the boardwalk, we finally got to the beach. At this point the rain had started to spit a little bit, but I didn't care. The beach is lovely, the sand looks perfect and the waves were banging. This is the beach where Coldplay filmed the music video for "Yellow", and it was exactly that kind of a day. The rain was starting a bit more, so on we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Fylde International Backpackers Blackpool
Eine wunderbare, einladende, familiäre Atmosphäre. Saubere und frische Zimmer und erstklassiges Essen. Wir konnten uns frei im Haus bewegen und fühlten uns, als seien wir mehr als nur Gäste. Toller Barbereich, in dem wir uns entspannen konnten, während die Kinder Billard oder andere Spiele gespielt haben, die es hier zur Auswahl gab. Werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen und es an Familie und Freunde weiter empfehlen.
Andrea's Hen Weekend
A weekend in Blackpool at the Fylde Hotel - you just cant book better. I was assisted by Vicky (the proprietor) over a period of 6 months to ensure all the Henette's and the Hen had a weekend to remember. I could not fault this hotel - with the exceptional service of the staff who dont believe anything is too much to ensure you have what you need - or to point you in the right direction for that special restaurant or show. From the moment we arrived, and hit the bar on the lower floor with seating and pool table, we were looked after - just like being at home only with better service, no cooking and a fully stocked bar with all of our favorite tipples, (as Vicky asked us in advance what we would like). Due to people arriving at different times, we ate at the hotel Friday night - the food is wonderful, there should be a calorie warning on some of the puds - but yum yum. Breakfast, with all the trimmings, set us up for the day, with a special request for a roast on Sunday being met with a smile - and very enjoyable it was too (and oh that treacle pud with custard). The rooms are clean, comfortable and stylish. The lounge with its leather sofas is a great place to hang out and read the papers that are available, or watch the TV or chat to your friends. If you are going to Blackpool - do yourself a favour and call the Fylde Hotel and enjoy the hospitality.
This hotel was an excelent place to stay, it is situated in an ideal quiet location, a 5-10 minute walk from the promenade, and the main shopping centre/arcades.
The people who own the hotel could not have made us feel more welcome if they tried, they were very friendly,
The hotel itself was imaculate, The food was all homecooked and excellent.
It was a pleasure to stay in.
We had an amazing weekend away in Blackpool which was partly due to the wonderful family who own the Fylde and the warm, comfortable atmosphere of their hotel. It was almost like staying with relatives - delicious home cooked breakfasts, comfy sun room with books, freeview and two gorgeous sleepy cats!
Our room was on the ground floor and absolutely spotless, as was the bathroom. All very tidy and hygenic. The rooms are light and airy, they have done a top job redocorating.
Well worth the fee per night (unlike some chain hotels I won't name). Will definitely return and will recommend to others.
For anyone wanting the perfect break in Blackpool, the Fylde hotel will suite all tastes as the perfect place to stay.
The hotel itself is very nicley decorated, the breakfast room and bar are of a good size so you dont get that cramped feel, the rooms are very light and airey and modernly decorated with a good size en-suite shower with fresh towels available. The hygiene standards of the hotel are extremley high, and most importantly the breakfast is one of the best fry ups i've ever had with an assortment of cereals and juices available aswell.
The owners of the Fylde are extremley friendly and welcoming and made myself and my friends feel very much at home in the hotel.
I very much intend to return to the Fylde hotel upon my next visit to Blackpool.
10/10 for everything.
Excellent Hotel, Friendly Service, Really Good Value, Very Clean
We stayed for a weekend. We had a wonderful stay. The rooms are really nice and clean and looked great.
Excellent service. Breakfasts were delicious as well. The staff are really friendly.
We enjoyed spending time in the bar before going out on the town, which was just a short walk away.
I will definatly stay at the Fylde Hotel next time I come to Blackpool.
A great wee hotel.
I have just returned from a 2 night break and i must say the Fylde is
a really nice hotel, the hosts couldn't do enough for us. Myself, wife, son, his freind and my father all had a very relaxing time, the
rooms were modern and very clean, the inter-connecting room was a big
plus, the sun lounge was nice and comfy with a dvd, freeview and loads of books to read, the bar was fine and the drinks were very reasonabily priced, there was also a pool table and plenty of board games which the kids liked, plenty of choice for breakfast, bar snacks and evening meals were avialable if you wanted them. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to my family, freinds or anybody as the hosts made our stay very pleasant indeed.
Scunthorpe United v Blackpool
Lovely decorated, well maintained and ideally situated.
Welcomed on arrival by Kate, Allan & Vicky, the service was superb from start to finish.
We ate at the hotel both nights of our stay, Mum & I enjoyed every minute of our weekend at the hotel thanks to the owners who were very good hosts.
The room was freshly painted and had an ensuite shower which was brilliant
The conservatory had comfy sofas and a tv to watch.
It was a 10 minute walk to the seafront/Blackpool tower and to the variety of shops and bars.
The hotel has its own bar with pool table, pinola and of course drinks.
We sat in the front garden in the sun on the chairs provided and watched all of the Scunthorpe united fans walking up the street.
There was sufficient parking at the hotel too.
Would highly recommend this hotel and tell my friends about it.
YamYams On Tour New Years Eve 2006
A really wonderful hotel extremely friendly family who really make you feel welcome. The hotel is very cheap for what you get the rooms are wonderful very comfortable with your own bathroom!!! which you don't normally get from a hotel in Blackpool!!!!, the bar is well stock and the prices are again very reasonable it is on average £2 per pint and 3 bottles for £5. The hotel boasts a class breakfast, wicked bar which is underground, part of it has been turned into a games room with a pool table and a couple of fruit machines/ games and class owners. The atmosphere is again very relaxed and laid back and would recommend to anyone going to Blackpool to choose the Fylde Hotel. I would just like to finally say we had a wicked New Year in Blackpool and was made even better by the hospitality the owners offered at the Fylde Hotel Thanks Again.
Love the Lads and Lassies From Dudley.
A great hotel!
Owned and run by the lovely Easley family the Fylde Hotel is a little gem. High quality service, comfortable beds and a warm welcome was all on the menu for our weekend away.
