One Night Stay
Just a one night stay - Phil and Kat were brilliant hosts, very friendly and accommodating. They made sure we had everything we needed and were very helpful. Great location - convenient for everything. great value for money, lovely breakfas set us up for the day. Our room slept three people - not the most spacious but was clean and tidy - sink small in bathroom and under a shelf difficult for having a wash. Some areas a little tired but generally clean.

Great Value For Money
We stayed here for one night on the 7th of july and were plesantly suprised. The rooms were clean although a little on the small side but were complete with your own en suite a rarity in most places.

The hosts were friendly and always wanted to help.

Finally the breakfast was great and not to be missed, a choice of sausage, bacon, egg, mushrooms, hashbrowns, fried bread and tomatoes washed down with tea coffee or orange juice.

We arrived to a lovely gentleman who helped us with parking and where was best to go to make the most out of our stay. The room was nice, clean and a fair size for blackpool.

What a great stay we had her from the 7th-10th Oct 2016, everything you need in a B and B, Kat and her hubby(forgot his name sorry) the two of them were brilliant, nothing seemed to be a problem for them, beds very clean and comfy, breakfast was exceptionally good as it was a buffet,and good selection, the only thing I'd say was on the Monday they put a full breakfast out and to a lot of people that's fantastic but there's some things people don't like, and leave a pot of tea on the table it would save you a lot of hassle filling people's cups up, but yes we will be back and thank you so much for a lovely weekend

Fabulous & Friendly
I have spent years looking for a good B&B in Blackpool having to travel for dance competitions quite regularly, and I have finally stumbled upon one who are extremely friendly, and accommodating to parties of all ages.

We had some young dancers in our party and due to the early morning start of their events - Phil & Kat were up early making sure we all had a breakfast beforehand and outside of their usual breakfast hours.

The rooms were clean and comfy, and being a stones throw from the high street this is one of the best B&Bs I've stayed at in the last 17 years and I will definitely be heading back here on my next trip to Blackpool.

Thank you so much and I'll see you soon.

Weekend To Remember
The Feathers may look a small hotel from the front but the inside goes back for miles.

We were there for the first time with our four grand daughters aged 10, 12 14 & 16 years. The rooms had plenty of space & the beds were very comfortable. Showers etc. in all our rooms. The hot buffet style breakfast goes down a treat with more of you need it.

Phil & Kat made us very welcome and offered us advice on where to go and the good places to eat.

This was out first time in Blackpool for a number of years and we wanted somewhere not too far away from the seafront. The Feathers is ideally situated, with shops and the sea less than five minutes away.

We would not hesitate to stay at the Feathers if we go to Blackpool again. Full marks !!!!!

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Distance 0.28 miles (0.44 km)
Blackpool Tower opened on 14th May 1894, with the aquarium existing as a stand a lone attraction from the late 1870's. The tower is 518ft 9inches tall, with the walk of faith at 380ft from street level. The Tower alone contains 2,493 tons of steel and 93 tons of cast iron. The building at the base contains 985 tons of steel and 259 tons of cast iron.
The Tower has a viewing platform at 380ft above the promenade and is reached by a lift or if you are a maintanance worker by 536 steps!
Not for the feint hearted is the 'Walk of Faith' glass floor, a two inch clear panel that looks straight down to the Promenade below.
The 'Walk of Faith' glass floor panel was placed at the Tower top in 1998. The glass floor weighs half a tonne and is made up of two sheets of laminated glass. The 'Walk of Faith' can withstand the weight equivalent to five baby elephants.
To reach the top viewing platform at approximately 450ft you can walk up 2 flights of stairs.
The present Ballroom was designed by Frank Matcham and opened in 1899. The Ballroom floor measures 120ft by 102ft. It comprises 30,602 separate blocks of mahogany, oak and walnut. The first Wurlitzer organ was installed in the Ballroom in 1929. It was replaced in 1935 with one to Reginald Dixon's specification. The first organ went to the Empress Ballroom at the Winter Gardens.
During the day visit the Ballroom to hear one of the famous organs being played. The Tower Ballroom is the traditional home of the mighty Wurlitzer Organ which rises up through the stage and complemented by the 3 Deck Wersi - the world's most advanced Blackpool Tower Ballroom - The Wurlitzer Organorgan, it includes over 600 sounds in the software, is touch screen sensitive and can create the sound of a complete orchestra.
The Tower Circus is positioned at the base of the tower, between its four legs. The circus first opened to the public on 14 May 1894 and has not missed a season since.

The present interior was designed by Frank Matcham and was completed in 1900.

The circus ring can be lowered into a pool of water and holds 42,000 gallons at a depth of up to 4 ft 6 inches, which allows for Grand Finales with Dancing Fountains. The Tower Circus is one of four left in the world that can do this.
During more than a century of entertainment, the world's greatest circus stars have paraded across its ring. The clown Charlie Cairoli appeared at the tower for 39 years. Britain's best-known ringmaster Norman Barrett worked the ring for 25 years.
Animals appeared in the circus until 1990.
It was planned to close the famous circus at the end of the 1990 season and replace it with an animatronic attraction. Public opinion and the fact the animatronics were not ready meant that the circus continued.
Today, the circus is produced and directed by Hungarian Laci Endresz. A live band (sometimes accompanied by Mooky the Clown) provides all the music for the show, often dynamically syncing with the performers' movements. The circus band play a variety of different songs, usually Latin for the acts. In the winter the circus stages a pantomime instead of the regular show.
The oldest part of the building is the aquarium which was part of Dr Cockers' Menagarie and Aquarium in the 1870s.[1] It was kept open to earn revenue while the tower building went up around it. The aquarium was modelled on the limestone caverns in Derbyshire. It houses 57 different species of fresh water and salt water fish and the largest tank holds 32,000 litres of salt water.[28]
The aquarium closed permanently at the end of the 2010 season and will be completely remodelled to make way for a new "Dungeons" attraction.[29] This is part of the investment by the Merlin Group, who took over the operation of the Tower at the end of the 2010 season on behalf of new owners Blackpool Council

Blackpool Centre - Town Centre

Distance 0.45 miles (0.73 km)
With around seven miles of fun packed coastline, Blackpool is the entertainment capital of Europe, and home to the world famous Blackpool Tower with its ballroom, circus, adventure play centre, aquarium and ride to the top of the tower. The tower also contains the nerve-wracking Walk of Faith - a glass floor, 380 feet above the ground that allows an unrestricted view of the street below. The town centre also hosts a variety of well known shops. It was the Victorians who developed Blackpool into a mega-resort, and in the early twentieth century they flocked here in their thousands to enjoy the fantastic combination of sun, sand and sea.
