the Hotel is just round the corner from north railway station, and a short walk into town the promenade and sea can be seen from the front door. all the rooms have balconies and we have Free secure parking in the gated area and garage on site. We are now in our 33rd year at The Lonsdale.

Hi We have had the Hotel for 33 years now and enjoy Looking after our guests and making sure they have a good time in Blackpool we have guests that have been coming to stay with us for over 25 years. Karl does the cooking and I do the waiting on.

you can look down onto the sea from the front door its a very quite neighbourhood but within a few minuets walk from the promenade and the Town centre we have a church and a couple of shops for anybody wanting drinks or papers. just round the corner but just far enough away we have a few Bars & pubs. There are numerous cafes & eateries within a short walk from The guest house.
