Historical Traveler Reviews New Guilderoy Hotel Blackpool
Excellent hospitality at the New Guildroy in Blackpool.
We arrived there on a Monday afternoon, having been on a long Journey we just wanted to get to our room and relax. The welcome was magnificent, we were offered help With the luggage and shown around. It is a small hotel but very good for families, good value for money and only three minutes away from the beautiful beach. The breakfast and all the other meals were very good. The environment was very good, the lounge was good for relaxation, the dining room and the bar equally good and all the furniture made the place more exotic. The only draw back is the parking spaces which means that once you park your car you dont have to use it until the end of the holiday, having said that the trams are very accessible, frequent and goes to all the fun places. Would recommend it to families that are looking for quality and value but are realistic at the same time.
Sun, sea and sand (and Kiss me quik hats)
Had a super weekend in this nicely situated hotel. The hotel is in a quiet street, but very close to the beach and of course its only a few tram stops to the centre of town.
The owners (this is their 1st season) were incredibly welcoming, taking the trouble to provide a Turkish breakfast and despite being very busy, always ready to chat and see to their guests comfort.
The hotel is quite basic - the room we were in was pretty small, but very clean and comfortable. Simon and Rhona tell us they have great plans for the future - and their ideas sound great.
We would recommend this highly.
We just wanted to clarify for other guests, the reference to being basic. As we were proving to being extremely popular because of our hospitality, cleanliness and quality of food, the demand for en-suite rooms was out stripped and people were staying in basic non-ensuite rooms for a mininal charge of just £18. It was always our intention to 'demolish' these rooms at the end of the season. We are pleased to be able to say that these rooms no longer exist and we are offering only en-suite rooms from this season (2006) onwards.
At last A fantastic Hotel in Blackpool
What a find, as a regular visitor to the Las Vegas of the North I have stayed in some cheap & cheerful B&B's, And some very expensive Hotels, But nothing has come close to the short stay me & the girlfriend experienced at The New Guildroy, the rooms are very clean & safe, the local parking is excelent & free, the atmosphere warm & welcoming, all of Blackpools town centre attractions are a short taxi ride away, The candle lit dinner was a challenge in it's self, I personnally only ever made it to the third course & then had to admit defeat, the service that was offered by Rhona & Simon was over & above the call of duty & we will definetly become regular visitors, look forward to our next visit.
From the owners Simon and Rhona who made our stay unforgettable, nothing was too much trouble, and to Paul the chef whose cuisine was first class.We would thoroughly recommend this small hotel. It is situated at the North Shore.
Great food and service
the best hotel i have stayed at in blackpool for many a year, the food was out of this world and the serice was great.simon and his staff never stop trying to please.our dog was also made welcome just as well he was not fed
A great find in Blackpool
We had a brilliant weekend staying at the New Guilderoy Hotel. It is ideal for families. Based in the North of Blackpool it was lovely and quiet but has easy access into Blackpool via tram or we walked it a few times too. Uncle Toms cabin is just around the corner for a drink but we tended to have a drink in the hotel bar late on.
A great breakfast and lovely and clean and the kids brilliantly catered for.
Unfortunately we didnt get to sample the dinners this time around but hopefully will the next time we are down that way.
Excellent weekend away
i booked at the new guilderoy as a surprise for my husband for our anniversary and i can honestly say it was the best weekend we ever had, the food was just AAAAA+++++++++, everything was kept very clean and the staff was all very friendly. we will def be paying another visit there in the future, a very well run establishment, thanks a lot gang, hope to see u all again soon..............debbie n martin from bolton
The New Guildroy Delivers the Goods!!
Nice to stay somewhere that "Does what it says on the box".The New Guilderoy Delivers 100% and the web site is accurate and fair.
You are made to feel wellcome and nothing is too much trouble .Simon is relatively new to the hotel trade but he will be successful ,VERY successful , because the basics are all as they should be and the food is Superb.
I am not really a curry man as a rule, but I enjoyed the best curry I've ever tasted here"Out of this world"
Took the brilliant Candle Lit Option (Never made it to the Cheese and Biscuits).
Value for Money is excellent.
I am already clearing my Diary for our next visit.

Simon couldnt be a nicer more accomodating host. He was always (24 hour) available if needed to serve and always enjoyed the banter with us. Will definately book for our next CWU conference in 2007 and will use it for pleasure trips too. Thanks Simon - You are a Curry (even the veggie one you had to specially make!) genius and English breakfast like no other.
Guilderoy Hotel Food Sensation!
The offer of a five course, candlelit evening meal for such a small premium at the Guilderoy was really hard to resist.. It was a special deal, but We think similar offers may arise again.
You normally take a chance on a offer like this and its a gamble that you get a good meal or a plain one... Or worse.
But the Guilderoy has a secret weapon in the form of Simon the proprietor of the place and the driving force in the kitchen. He CAN cook, he had us raving about his food from the words "Pick up your knives and forks.."
We can't stress this enough, if you want to stay anywhere, stay somewhere else. But if you want to stay where the foods just excellent. The Guilderoy is the place. (Ask about the Chinese Banquet..)
We were also attended to most eloquently by Peter the Hotel Maitre 'd. Who made sure our places were ready and was so helpful.
They were a little understaffed but we hardly noticed, and they made everyone feel comfortable, important and definately well - fed at the Guildroy..
The room was clean, tidy and warm and had a TV and coffee making equipment, it was a little small but for the 2 of us just riding the Pepsi Max, it was well worth it.
We recomend the Guildroy Hotel Blackpool to anyone seeking Outstanding Meals, and Value Accomodation.
