5 stars = Great hotel and excellent service at a great price

Reviewer: Stephen Pritchard from Lancashire, England


I have been to this hotel on a number of occasions, including members of my staff who have also enjoyed staying at the hotel. I (we) have had no complaints, comparative to many hotels in Blackpool, this is a clean, regularly serviced and above average standard. The access is great and in easy distance to the centre of Blackpool, book in and prove me wrong. Stephen Pritchard, MD accessatlast.com.

4 stars = No Problems at all

Reviewer: Janet from Lancashire, England


I have just read the review "Dissapointed" All I can say is some people want a high class hotel while paying lower class prices. We stayed here without any problems in fact it was smashing, I found it to be one of the best Blackpool Hotels with wheelchair access I have stayed in. Also with regards to the narrow slope into hotel I am a large lady with a extra wide chair and found NO problem getting up and down the slope (although after a night out at nearby show bar it did take my carer a couple of runs to get us up it after a few to many drinks, No fault of hotel though ha ha)The Shellard is a clean,helpfull,friendly and easy to get around in chair the meals are lovely home cooked. I found that even if you go for one night you are given the care and friendlyness as if booked for week, We will defo be going back and taking my grandaughter as well. You try it you will like it honest.

1 stars = Disappointing

Reviewer: Mrs Starkey from Oxfordshire, England


My husband and i stayed at the Shellard B&B recently, we chose this B&B as there is hardly any B&B's with wheelchair ramp access in the area,the pictures of the rooms on the internet and the leaflet show it to be very smart. My husband is wheelchair bound and on booking the room i was quite thorough in checking the room and bathroom was able to accomadate him. What we thought we were getting and what it was is completly different! The ramp to the front of the B&B is very narrow with a steep slope and a tight turn, the ramp to the rear of the buiding is quite rough and bumpy! We were offered a choice of 2 rooms on the top floor, both were tired looking and in need of redecoration and repair! The wet rooms although spacious are of a poor standard, with a small hand basin and a very basic shower. We moved to another room of which was of a better standard of decoration, however the wet room was no better than the previous one! The toilet transportable hand rail was in poor condition and the portable chair seat was of poor quality. The following morning we were aware of an ant infestation on the bedroom furniture! Breakfast was of a high standard and was efficently delivered. The manageress and the staff were helpful and friendly but are not able to correct the poor standard of the building and equipment. Needless to say we did not stay another night!

5 stars = The Shellard Hotel Blackpool

Reviewer: David And Dawn From Lincoln from Lincolnshire, England


David and I have just returned from a very relaxing 5 day break at The Shellard in Blackpool. I am confined to a wheelchair with m,s, but nothing was too much trouble for the owner or staff. The room was warm and comfortable and the bathroom with level access shower was en - suite. The hotel was easy to manouvre round and was ramped back and front. The meals were superb David had a wonderful break too we have rebooked for next year and would recommend a stay to anyone.

5 stars = Stay at The Shellard

Reviewer: David Schofield From Abergele from Conway, Wales


I have stayed at the Shellard with my family on several occassions over the last three years and would recommend it to anyone. You get a warm and welcome feeling as soon as you go through the doors and this feeling carries on throughout the hotel. The hotel is run very efficiently by Alison the owner and her manageress Ann. They are both very friendly and helpful at all times and nothing is too much trouble for them. Some members of my family have to stick with a very special diet and both Ann and Alison took this on board and always made sure that we had the right food at all times. The food is excellent and always freshly cooked at all times. The hotel is completely accessible with a ramp at the front to an automatic sliding door and there is car parking available at the rear. There is an ample sized wheelchair accessible lift to all floors. All the bedrooms are wheelchair accessible and en suite and ten of them heve wetroom type wheelchair accessible shower rooms. The beds are very comfortable and will give you a very good night's sleep. The dining room and bar lounge are all completely accessible and the hotel is kept very clean at all times. Two minutes walk down the street you are on the promenade near the South Pier, Sandcastle Waterworld and the Pleasure Beach. From here you can also get the tram or the bus to Town and other attractions or even tram it as far as Fleetwood. The rates for this hotel are very reasonable and affordable and it is an ideal hotel to stay for a family holiday. You are in fact made to feel like part of a very large family by Alison and Ann and I will certainly be returning with my family to stay with them. Well done Alison and Ann!

5 stars = Fantastic hotel

Reviewer: Sheila from Lancashire, England


I have been a guest at the Shellard Hotel on four occasions during 2008 (5 weeks in total) the accommodation is first class with complete wheel chair access to the bedrooms, the dining room and bar lounge with a lift of ample space to access the upper floor rooms. The hotel has a warm and friendly atmosphere with staff offering a very personal service. I stayed on a dinner, bed and breakfast board and had excellent food served in the comfortable dining room. I would recommend a stay at the Shellard Hotel to anyone, I have already booked again for next year. I feel that I have new found friends in Alison the owner and Ann the manager. I am confined to a wheelchair and was given excellent assistance.

5 stars = Short stay in Blackpool

Reviewer: Karen from Yorkshire, England


Myself and my partner Martin have just returned from what was a very comfortable stay at the Shellard Hotel. The hotel had a warm and welcoming feel when we arrived. We were then taken in the lift which goes to all floors to our room on the first floor which was fully accessible to a wheelchair user of which I am full time. There was an ensuite wet floor shower room with a wheely shower chair again fully accessible. All areas of the hotel were accessible and even though we only stayed bed and breakfast we found the dining room tables easily accessed and could sit comfortably at the table to eat breakfast. I highly recommend this hotel not just for the accessibility but for the hospitality received from Alison and her family who own the hotel.
