About Us

We are an 8 bedroom family run licensed guest house centrally located near the promenade in Blackpool.

As Steve and Elaine, we would like to welcome you to our Guest House, The Arthington.
We have been proud owners of The Arthington since April 2006, putting our heart and soul into creating a quirky, modern yet homely environment, for you our guests.

We enjoy the liberty of being independent and the opportunity it gives us to express our unique and genuine personality. We take pride in having a conscientious, highly professional and happy team dedicated to delivering outstanding service and ensuring that every guest experience is delightfully memorable.

Meeting in 1983, and marrying soon after in 1984, Steve was working in the Army and constantly on the move, so Elaine joined him. Having worked in the hotel industry since the age of 17, Elaine put her hospitality background to good use, working in military messes and organising functions; and had the honour or serving the Queen Mum. Leaving the Army after 24 years, we undertook a new and exciting challenge in a town we both love, Blackpool, and set about designing The Arthington; with a desire to cater and provide guests with personalized hospitality based on what they prefer and not what is customary. Our goal is to provide our guests with a personable service in the most convenient, comfortable, intimate and welcoming setting.

Our mission is to build loyalty based on the value of our relationship with our guests. We strive to be unique, and the place you would want to go back to on your next visit to Blackpool.

Ideally located just off the promenade and half way between the Iconic Blackpool Tower and The Blackpool Pleasure Beach, we love being here in Blackpool and believe there is no other seaside resort in the UK that can offer what Blackpool does, - we even have a Zoo! With the world-famous Tower Ballroom, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and abundance of night-life and restaurants, not to mention the donkeys, there is something in Blackpool for everyone.

But don't just take our word for it, we hold a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and consistently get 5 star ratings from our guest feedback.
