“Great find in Blackpool! Spent a weekend with my family here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Couldn’t wish for a better location, literally a couple of minute’s walk to the water park and pleasure beach. The hotel is newly refurbished, lovely decor and felt very pleasant. Beds were comfy, nice big bathroom, the cooked breakfast was excellent too! A big thanks to the owner Greg, you made us feel at home and we’ll be definitely back!”  Donika

“A perfect one-night stay in a lovely new hotel where they truly made us feel at home! Lovely hotel with a fantastic breakfast. They really made us feel at home even with two young children. Amazing location just by Blackpool Pleasure Beach and the Water Park. Kids loved being so close and as a parent it was great to know we could easily pop back to change clothes if needed! Couldn’t recommend this hotel enough.” Bowers family

“A new standard for Blackpool – we stayed as family at this brand new Bed & Breakfast over the early May bank holiday weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the lengths the owners went to make a bank holiday weekend a novel refreshing experience. The hotel has been recently refurbished to a very modern and appealing new standard. The combination of black and gold fitting and colourful decoration details give this hotel a touch of uniqueness, fun and vibrancy. There are magical touches: Tiffany-style ceiling lamps, stained glass tortoises and fish bedside lamps. Comfortable beds and beautiful bed covers – we stayed in the Jasmine Suite. The grilled breakfast was very well presented, the sausages and bacon locally sourced. Greg even pointed us to a very interesting walk along the beach nearby. Parking was a breeze as there are parking spaces at the rear. The hotel is in a very convenient location, you can see the Waterpark from the front door, also the Amusement Park, a pub, and arcades are within five minutes’ walk. This is a new standard of excellence for Blackpool. We couldn’t recommend it highly enough.” Alvaro P

“Newly refurbished well positioned hotel, very pleasant owners who made my children feel very much at home. Our room was the Bluebell Suite which was perfect for us, it was just like having our own flat where the children could be free to walk about from the shower and toilet to the bedrooms without the worry of them walking off as I had locked the main door to the landing – very useful factor for a young family. The beds were very comfortable and the children enjoy having such a newly furnished fresh room to themselves. The shower was perfect as they could run around as they would at home afterwards. We found the breakfast of high standard and filling which prepared us for the walk along the beach. Pleasure Beach and rollercoasters were incredible, and the ice-skating arena – all around 8 minutes from the hotel. The indoor swimming pool at the end of the road is a must for families too. All the rooms have a plan on the website, so you know what you are getting before you book.” Paul C

“Warm welcome – the owners were lovely people, and a great location, with a friendly atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends. We will definitely go back to Half Moon Bay hotel.” Dumitru family

So lucky to have booked here. Turns out it’s the best hotel in Blackpool, and rightfully so. Greg and his wonderful family made it a true home away from home. We enjoyed being in our hotel just as much as being outside. Highly recommended!“ David H

“Very nice. Very good hosts. Parking. Wifi. Breakfast plentiful cereal toast full English juice etc etc. 2 min walk from front of Blackpool near Pleasure Beach. The cleanest hotel I’ve actually been in. Forgot name of room but it was a family room and best thing was each room had a toilet and shower. Bunk beds loads of room for kids even an adult. Very good”. Millers family

“Amazing! We stated at this hotel for one night but wish it had been longer. It’s newly refurbished and it’s been done brilliantly. The suite we stayed in was lovely and luxurious with the biggest bath I’ve ever seen! The whole place is very stylish. Greg and his family are fab hosts – nothing was too much trouble and breakfast (especially the bacon!) was lovely. I would highly recommend this hotel. We will definitely be going back!” Vikky

“Wonderful!!! Our stay in Blackpool was awesome since we stayed in Half Moon Bay. Greg was an awesome host and he made sure our time was perfect. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was filling and their coffee was just lovely. The location was near Pleasure Beach”. Jamie D

Amazing hotel! Greg, Claudia, Laura, Jessica, Jack and of course Flossy made our stay memorable. Nothing was too much. Breakfast was astounding, best sausage I have ever tasted, hats off to Claudia for the well done bacon and the beautiful fruit platter too! Thank you to you all for giving us the best experience! Emma and I will definitely be back for more! Thank you guys so much for all you have done for us! Until next time xxx” Emily Moody

Home from home. If Carlsberg did breakfast… possibly the best breakfast in Blackpool!! My well done bacon request was fulfilled with a fantastic service. Breakfast a plenty catering for all needs, vegetarian options available, fruit juices, cereals, yogurts, pancakes… you name it, you can have it! The property itself is absolutely spotless, fantastic location, nothing is too much at this place, definitely got more than our money’s worth, lots of little extras in your room from shower products to robes and slippers… good WIFI connection for the non-explorers and a good selection of drinks available in your room too! Amazing hotel! Without a doubt, the best hotel in Blackpool! Home from home, until next time! “ Emma

“Exceptional! If your visiting Blackpool then a stay at the Half Moon Bay is a must for anyone who values their comfort & surroundings. My husband has travelled more than I through his work etc. So he has more knowledge than I about the best hotels; Yet I am no fool and know a quality establishment when I see it . This hotel with its owners and staff could be picked up and moved to the most sought after area of London and would still fair so well on its own two feet. The absolute best in patrons welfare and comfort will be paramount to anyone who stays here. Usually I’m not a Blackpool fan; Yet our stay at Half Moon Bay was the best hotel stay Iv had by far in England . This is due to the fact we were spoilt rotten by the lovely owners and staff. Fabulous place and truly fabulous genuine proprietors. Their staff are a true reflection of their standards, cleanliness, kindness and above and beyond anyone’s expectations regarding a hotel stay. Anything we mentioned we liked we had on tap; it was like having our own genie granting wishes . Within reason of course !! The only problem I now have is adjusting back to normal life at home. After being waited hand on foot, fed stupendous top quality fair at breakfast beyond any other breakfast my husband or I have ever had around the globe. If I give too much away then the competition may try to copy. Yet for the price we were charged as a family of 4 my husband myself our youngest daughter and her friend. We cannot see how the hosts Greg& Claudia can possibly make a profit. They gave it all back to us in our stay ten fold. If anyone values their surroundings & comfort as their top priority then I can guarantee you’ll leave very happy.

Blackpool itself is very rundown in areas. This is a disgrace I totally blame on the council down there. Enough bloody money’s passing through the city to do these face lifts. Thankfully once we saw the outside of our hotel Half Moon Bay my heart lifted by its kerb appeal ! The best sight in the whole of Blackpool if you ask us! Plus I’d emailed the hotel to ask if a fridge was in our room or not for my medications. Can you believe they actually purchased a brand new fridge for my stay in our room!!! The cost for them! Also we loved the fact that our kids had a bedroom themselves which is fabulous especially as they are 12 years olds. Great news for families with older kids! Nothing was too much for the owners so very very kind warm and just wonderful people!” Louise

“Well, what can we say? Greg and his wife have been the ultimate hosts, very attentive to our needs and offering extra services, above and beyond anything we could think of. From the moment we arrived Greg ensured we were fed and watered and could want for nothing. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, the children loved the little turtle lights and fluffy cushions. We are thoroughly impressed with the Half Moon Bay and have already decided to make it an annual visit. A gem of a place.” Stinchons family.

“Thank you so much for everything you have done for us during our stay this weekend! Greg and his wife have gone above and beyond what we expect from staying at a B and B. To arriving to coffee and toast and a special toy area for the kids, to lovely snacks and drinks from returning from the Pleasure Beach and setting up an area for us to have a takeaway!! This is such a welcoming family environment. The rooms are clean and really comfortable with lovely added extras like giant and lots of little rubber ducks all around the bath and complimentary toiletries and baby essentials! This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in and we are booking for next year – definitely 10 out of 10” Dingwall’s family.

“Out of all the accommodation available in Blackpool, we have definitely chosen the best one. From all the hotels we’ve experienced over the last 30 years, this takes some beating. The helpfulness and attentive staff make it, together with THE BEST QUALITY BREAKFAST ever, everything was so fresh an in abundance. We will be visiting again and will certainly be recommending it to friends (as long as Greg always makes space for us!). Thanks for everything. Doug, Kay, Ben & Suzie. P.S. Doug said coffee at 8 minutes made the difference!”

“Been almost around the world, and by far Half Moon is one of the best service and the cleanliness. Everything speaks for itself”. The Ngoyen family

Thanks for having us” Dave and Stacey Hughes

“Never been in such a lovely place with such wonderful people!! Everything was excellent! Greg & family so warm, welcoming & nothing was too much trouble!!! Little extras you didn’t expect eg: went out to get extra special coffee & even sent mum home with special veg dish she’d liked so much for breakfast!! Food fantastic & plentiful!! Absolutely nothing negative!! Their eye for detail & the comfort & happiness of their guests seemed paramount!!” Paula

Best hotel in the U.K.! We loved our stay here – the owners were really attentive from arriving to welcome coffee and toast to setting up a little play area for our kids! The rooms were clean and had lots of added extras like every type of toiletries you can think of including baby wipes and nappy cream etc for my 2 year old! Wifi was great and we could stream live tv, beds were very comfy and my kids loved the bunk beds! The breakfast in the morning was amazing – one of the best we have ever had! By far the best hotel we have stayed in in the U.K and puts other hotels to shame in Blackpool! We are already planning another holiday here.” Rebecca & family

First time we had taken our grandchildren away without their parents and we needn’t have worried. What can I say, Greg couldn’t do enough for you. I can honestly say he is the best host I have come across and I have travelled all over the world. He talked us through the directions as we were a bit lost and came up the street to guide us and had nibbles and tea waiting. Breakfast was fantastic, cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice, full English, pancakes, and if the kids want cake they can have it. Greg even brought complimentary drinks to our room.” Carol, John and grandchildren

Couldn’t fault anything, perfect in every way. Definitely highly recommended. The staff were extremely helpful, Greg couldn’t do enough for you. Little extras and finishing touches that were above and beyond and the personal service was exceptional. We have stayed in many hotels and B & B’s over the last 30 years and this is definitely up there with the best of them. Coffee and cakes when we arrived was a nice touch and a breakfast to die for, real quality produce, fresh fruit and proper coffee served. The room and bathroom were spotless and were a great size. Thanks again. Will definitely be back.” Kay Cauldwell and family

“From the moment we parked up we were greeted by two very welcoming people. They made sure our stay was one to remember. Our room (Bluebell Suite) was everything we wanted and more!

“Fantastic location. Great hosts. The power of the Internet. Found this by chance a little worried at first but as soon as I booked had a call booking in my car. The day before arrival an email of money saving tips for parks etc. Upon arrival a warm welcome with tea and biscuits. A very welcoming host. Perfect location right by the south prom, the rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. Well what can I say about breakfast, how any money is made with the portion sizes is amazing, tasty great produce and cooked very well. Thumbs up and look no further.” Sharon B.

“This is the one. With so many hotels and B&Bs to choose from it’s a nightmare trying to decide. Let me assure you, forget searching and just book this one. An amazing Brand new hotel that makes all the others look a bit grim. Very bright and fresh decor makes you feel like your the first guests to walk through the door, great location, car park and an amazing breakfast but it doesn’t just end there. The whole team at the hotel will treat you like the family, their attention to detail and friendliness towards every guest is first class. They even text you to make sure you know the way and do you need anything on your arrival. We can’t wait to go back and thanks to Greg for an amazing stay.” John W

“Daughter’s 9th birthday. Decided to take my daughter away for her 9th birthday to go and see the light switch on. I come to Blackpool every year but just go up for the day because most hotels in Blackpool are really dodgy. I searched for 5* hotels in Blackpool with hope of finding something with it being last minute and didn’t think there was any hotels of this class so didn’t expect to find what I was after. I was so happy when this little gem popped up in my searches and so pleased to find it on south shore too which was a bonus. I stayed here with my two daughters 4yrs and 9yrs and also my mum due to my partner being unable to go due to work commitments. On arrival we were greeted by Greg and offered us drinks and a form to choose what we wanted for breakfast. After we were shown to our room which was a family suite and was fabulous it was called the bluebell suite. One room had a large double bed and the other had a bunk bed with an on suite with shower. The bathroom had a large basket full of shampoo, shower gels etc and on the wall large hand wash and hand moisturizer. We all had fantastic nights sleep and the breakfasts were huge and fabulous and never had such an amazing breakfast like this before. I recommend the fruit salad with the figs and double cream but the vegetarian breakfast was good too. I can’t thank this hotel enough for having balloons, banners and even brought her a cake as it was too late to bake and they also baked her some home made Romanian cakes with jam looked a bit like small croissants no idea what they were called but were really nice. They made my daughter’s birthday so special and can’t thank them enough and one lady in particular was amazing with my 4yr old daughter. The owners are so nice and friendly and make every effort to make your stay the best you have ever had. We will be back and will make this our annual hotel when we visit Blackpool” Asunni

“Perfect location and perfect hosts. As a family of 4 with 2 young kids, we found this hotel to be perfect for our needs for our 1 night stay in Blackpool. The location is around 100 yards to the Pleasure Beach entrance, and the Sandcastle water park. There’s also parking available right outside the back door and we were helped in with our bags. The rooms are very clean and spacious, with bunk beds for the kids in the suites, and nice decorative touches. Greg and Claudia (and Laura) are very attentive and welcoming hosts, from toys laid out for the kids, to coffee and toast on arrival (for an early check-in), they couldn’t do enough for us. We had dinner tables laid out for our use, a complimentary beverage or two, and an amazing breakfast to round things off in the morning, with quality, well cooked ingredients in the full English, a lovely fruit salad, hot croissants and good coffee in individual pots. I’d highly recommend this spot if you want to be looked after during your stay! Even a late night request for a vase of dry rice wasn’t too much to ask – thanks Greg, the phone’s working again now!” Ben D

“Lovely stay. On arrival we were met by Greg and his wife Claudia. A very warm welcome, extremely accommodating. Stayed for one night as a group; six people in total. Two had a double room and the other four had a family room which had a double bed and a bunk bed. Rooms were extremely clean, modern and spacious. Breakfast was yummy! Greg ensured we did not go hungry, plenty of food! Location was a little out the way for us as we wanted to be more Central Blackpool but easy tram access. Very close to the Pleasure Beach. Would definitely stay at the Half Moon Bay again. Big thanks to Greg and Claudia.” Natasha T

“Great value, very comfortable and very welcoming. We would not hesitate to stay here again. The staff were excellent, going that extra mile to make your stay more enjoyable. The food and facilities were superb and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is ideally situated and fantastic value” Ronald B

“From start to finish has been a wonderful experience. We have been made to feel at home here and have been treated with kindness. Nothing seems too much trouble for Greg and the team, he even gave us a lift in the morning when we were running late! The rooms were very modern and clean, the bed was very comfortable and everything provided from toiletries to food was of a very high standard, special mention for the breakfast which was outstanding, our kids loved the fruit salad and the bacon was delicious!! When we ever come back to Blackpool it will always be the Half Moon Bay for us staying in. Thanks.” Danny, Patricia, Callum, James + Danny

“Best hotel in Blackpool. We stayed here with our 3 children and just had to leave a review! When we arrived after a longer journey then expected we were greeted by the owner Greg, what a lovely man he had fresh filtered coffee and a continental breakfast waiting for us! The suite we stated in was fab all spotless and new, in the bathroom our 2 year old had a great time playing with all the bath toys and the giant rubber duck! Lovely touch. Greg is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to Blackpool and all the deals available we even got 10% of our evening meal after he recommended a wonderful restaurant. The location is ideal right next to Pleasure Beach and Sandcastles Water Park with free parking at the hotel. As other reviews a special mention for the breakfast fantastic! Fruit salad and freshly made pancakes to die for plus a full English of the highest quality! We ate so much we were running late for a shark dive at the sea life but Greg kindly gave us a lift and even offered to pick up after.  Lovely hotel but the owner really makes this the best hotel in the area nothing is to much trouble you feel like part of the family. Thank you see you soon.” The Drewry family

“The Half Moon Bay is a lot better than the norm in Blackpool. We visited this hotel on our 50th wedding anniversary when we arrived a table had been laid for us with a specially baked cake and a bottle of bubbly in an ice bucket, gold trimmings and an anniversary card. The rest of our stay was the same very clean room excellent breakfast and service from Greg Claudia and Laura. We have recommended this hotel to our extended family and close friends.” William G

“Stayed for one night with my family which included three small children, aged 2, 4 & 5 and nothing was too much trouble. Greg, his wife and staff could not do enough for you. The breakfast was excellent and the coffee was superb. There was a huge Lego box for the children to play with, Netflix for them to watch to keep them entertained. I would not consider staying anywhere else in Blackpool after the care and attention we have been shown by Greg and his team during our visit. Looking forward to staying again and would recommend the Half Moon Bay to anybody without hesitation. Many thanks.” Craig & family

“110% room, service, facilities, accommodation. Fantastic service, very welcoming! This was a first visit to Half Moon Bay, however certainly won’t be the last. Everything that we experienced here on our visit stood out for the right reasons. I do hope you take the time to reflect on your business Greg as it’s unique and you should be very proud. Not often you get staff like Laura, she can’t do enough for the guests, always wearing a smile. Thank you for making our visit to Blackpool special.” Joanne, Michael, Liam, Jake x

“A very warm and welcoming stay, spotlessly clean. Greg, his wife and the lady who served breakfast were very accommodating, going the extra mile.

“If Carlsberg did hoteliers….Last time I went to Blackpool I ended up in a Fawlty Toweresque type of place that left me scarred for life, so when the wife suggested booking for the Illuminations I agreed with a degree of trepidation. However, my fears started to subside a little the day before we were due to arrive, the owner Greg contacted my wife with the offer of arriving early to use the hotels car park to save money & also to have complimentary breakfast. I was really impressed with this level of service & then Greg contacted her again with the idea of booking any pleasure beach tickets early to save money & also bring our own cagoules as they cost so much more in the park. On arrival Greg insisted on carrying the bags from our car & supplied us with refreshments then instructed us to put however many of each item we wanted (doesn’t he know me) from the menu card for the next morning. The rooms were spotless and Gregs attention to detail was second to none, each floor had its own dedicated wi-fi which the kids didn’t moan about once! We even had recommendations on where to go for our evening meal & I was quite happy that we had already booked one of the ones advised. Breakfast was a splendid affair with all top-quality produce served, none of the no frill malarkey, my daughters fruit salad was indeed a sight to behold & even my teenage daughter was impress with her pancakes! As I said in the title if Carlsberg did hoteliers it would be Greg, nothing too much trouble going the extra mile & a bit & the hotel was spotless. We will definitely be back as we class Gregg as a friend & the location, 3 mins from the velvet coaster Weatherspoon’s & 4 mins from Pleasure Beach, makes the place a great base to see the South side of Blackpool.” Daniel Skinner and family

“What can we say … apart from AMAZING! From the moment we arrived we felt instantly welcome, almost felt part of the family! Nothing was ever too much trouble, they even sang “happy birthday”, bought me a cake & a card and even some champers! Made our stay in Blackpool the best we’ve EVER had! Will definitely be recommending & staying again soon! Thanks so much Half Moon Bay! See you soon!” Love Chloe + Carly xxxxx

When arriving back at the hotel later on in the day, we were surprised with a birthday cake, card and bottle of wine! The rooms were clean and comfortable, staff were amazing, we couldn’t have had a better stay! Just wished we had been staying longer. Breakfast was large, filled you for the day. Will recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely be going back!” Emma

Well done, a great stay!” The Brandts

“Thank you for the most amazing stay at your fabulous hotel. From start to finish the experience was second to none. We couldn’t have asked for a more friendly welcome from Greg, Claudia and Laura and Jack and Jessica. The breakfasts are enormous and very tasty and the rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated. It was our granddaughter’s birthday during our stay and she was very happy when Greg, Claudia and Laura decorated her bedroom and left a wonderful cake with decorations. The experience was of great benefit and we hope that everybody that stays enjoys their stay as much as we did. Thanks for everything and we hope to stay again very soon.” Chris, Gillian and Hollie

“Brilliant. Needed a hotel for the family for slimefest at the pleasure Beach, and couldn’t have done any better than the half moon bay. Right from the first moment to the last we were totally looked after, nothing too much trouble, refreshments on arrival, and prior to leaving. The room was great as it was two bedrooms, very clean and new feeling. Breakfast was excellent, lots of options, plenty of it and really tailored for the kids too. Can’t recommend enough.” SJ Clarke

Friendly and welcoming hosts, lovely clean rooms, even the toiletries left in basket a big yes, after forgetting most times. This place is a tremendous hotel run well and presented even better. Full credit to the Chef for a wholesome breakfast, as a family we will add to our great stays and be back again, 1 night but an excellent choice. Thanks all” The Tongues family, Andy, Kelly and children

All the best for future.” Gareth Jones

Will definitely recommend to friends and family. All the best.” Karl and Carly

“We really enjoyed our stay. From the moment we arrived we were looked after and made to feel so welcome. The Marigold Suite was lovely and a real home from home. It was a real find having a suite so we could enjoy our own space. Breakfast was the best and the kids really enjoyed the pancakes, very good quality. Greg and Claudia could not do enough for us and were super hosts. Thank you Laura for looking after us at breakfast. See you next time.” Donna, Andy, Isaac & Dylan x

“The room was clean, immaculate and stylish. The beds were extremely comfortable. From the moment of arrival the host (Greg) very friendly and informative (and a very funny guy). For breakfast they catered to our dietary needs (VEGAN) and exceeded our expectations with a completely vegan breakfast beautifully presented with various options available. Both the host and the chef showed an interest into our vegan lifestyle and were very passionate about providing a breakfast which was special and inspired (people were jealous of the Poppy table that morning). We couldn’t have asked for more and will definitely be back in the future.” Joe + Jess (THE VEGANS)

“Newly refurbished hotel with good facilities and very local to the Pleasure Beach and free parking. It is the family that run this hotel that really make it special and they really cannot do enough for you – from freshly brewed coffee to helping plan our itinerary and what to see during our mini-holiday. Highly recommended and a cut above the competition!” Charles & family

“I stayed here overnight with my daughter and wish that we could have stayed longer. I’ve never been so well looked after – or so well fed. This is such a lovely little hotel, Laura and Claudia really looked after us – nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely come back here again. I can’t imagine why anyone would want to stay anywhere else!” Lisa Smith

“On arrival at the Half Moon Bay Hotel we were pleasantly surprised, as we had heard a few horror stories about Blackpool. The hotel was stylish and immaculate. The extra attention to detail and little touches here and there make a huge difference Greg & staff were 11/10 absolutely brilliant the Twibey family were made to feel like family, a home away from home. SERVICE is everything and here at Half Moon Bay it is second to none. Great. Great. Great.” Twibey family

“Had an absolutely fantastic stay at Half Moon Bay. From start to finish we have been so well looked after. Greg is just a star he bent backwards for us. Rooms are amazing and beds so comfortable. Breakfast 10/10. Will definitely be back with the rest of the Scottish troops. You have been warned! Love to you all.” Johan, Lynne, Chloe, Bryony

“Greg was so welcoming from the very first moment, helping us to the car park & with our bags. Nothing was too much trouble & the rooms were immaculate. Very laid back hotel and it was like home from home for us. Breakfast was lovely, too. We will definitely be returning. Thank you for a lovely stay.” Laura & Kirsty xx

“Service was great Greg the owner was very friendly and Laura was a treat to meet, letting us call back before we went home for the kids to have a drink, and toilets, thanks for a great stay”. Tony

“We stayed just one night on the 4th November. It was myself, husband and two children (aged 11 and 4). On the Friday I contacted the owner to see if it was possible to park there as we would be arriving too early. He was accommodating saying not only could we park but would provide a breakfast (tea, coffee and toast). We parked up and the owner Greg came out to meet us. Took us inside and provided us with a lovely cup of coffee and a menu on which you could choose what you wanted before taking us to our room. The room was fantastic. 2 bedrooms and a shower room. Kids loved the bunk beds. We had our own double bed which was lovely. Greg gave us information on the best places to eat giving us cards with a discount. We spent the whole day out returning to go to bed. The breakfast room was set out lovely and the food was gorgeous. Greg also allowed us to park there on the Sunday too and return whenever we wanted. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely return as it is ideally situated near the Pleasure Beach and the Sand castle.” Paula Burdon

“Excellent B&B with fantastic service. We stayed at the Half Moon Bay Hotel as a family for two nights to visit the Pleasure Beach and to see the illuminations. The location is spot on for the Pleasure Beach – about three minutes walk. The hotel is newly re-furbished and very well run by Greg and his wife. On arrival we were met with freshly brewed coffee (a clear passion of Greg’s) and biscuits – there was Lego for the kids to play with too. The family room allowed some degree of separation between our room and the kids bunk beds which was unusual and welcome :-). The breakfasts are fantastic and very large – I had to waddle round the Pleasure Beach and couldn’t eat again until tea time! Keep up the good work Greg and I am sure we will be back!” Charles

“Fantastic! We wanted a nice, well located, family friendly hotel and were certainly not disappointed with the Half Moon Bay! Beautifully appointed inside, an extremely welcoming and helpful host and a lovely spacious family suite made this a perfect choice. The breakfast was amazing – my husband finally gave up after his second round of extras and kids loved the homemade pancakes. Greg was a pleasure to meet and we’ll definitely be back!” Jane

“My 7 year old daughter and I stayed here overnight and wished that we could have stayed longer. Claudia and Laura made us feel incredibly welcome. The hotel is lovely and spotlessly clean, our double bedroom was small but had everything we needed. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the ensuite shower room pristine and stylish. Throughout our stay, we were spoiled rotten by our hosts, they even offered to make sandwiches for us to take on our journey home. As it was, we left with boxes of goodies for our journey! They truly went above and beyond to make sure that we were as well fed and comfortable as possible. This is a gem of a hotel and I don’t hesitate to recommend it.” Lisa Tilley

“What a lovely gem of a hotel! We decided on a last minute half term visit to Blackpool and were delighted to find Greg and the Half Moon Bay. Lovely rooms – perfect for families – and so centrally located for the main attractions. Greg was a lovely host – helpful and friendly. I’m sure we’ll be back!” Jane, Craig, Cara and Callum

“Thank you for looking after us, we all had a lovely sleep and a wondrous breakfast and we will love to stay here again.” From Cara, 10 years old

“A fantastic base for our first family visit to Blackpool. Greg was helpful even before arrival advising us on booking attractions. Coffee and toast on arrival was a lovely touch. Loved the style of the hotel, especially the amazing lighting. Fantastic breakfast, we are leaving very happy and contented. I’m sure we will be back.” The Wenham family
