One Night Stay, 3 Couples
Excellent hospitality at this hotel. The manager can\'t do enough for you. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Our room was a family one and quite spacious whilst the other 2 were small but adequate. The hotel is very homely with lots of little nick nacks on the walls. Good freshly cooked breakfast . Only 10 - 15 minutes walk from the Tower and with parking spaces you really can\'t ask for better value for money.

A lovely guest house with caring and friendly hostesses. Clean, fresh, well decorated, good sized rooms with lots of nice little extra touches to make you feel welcome. Near to the all the Winter Gardens and all the local amenities, and the printed street map made available was very useful. Also a fabulous full English breakfast to get you going for the next day. We will definitely stay here again.

You Will Be Tret Like Royalty!
If you\'re looking to stay in Blackpool, close to the city centre and night life, look no further! Not only is this hotel in a great location, it\'s cosy, clean and you will be tret like royalty! I received a text on the morning of my arrival to inform me of the weather and what time my room would be ready, and on arrival there was a car parking space ready for me. Claire was an excellent host and even offered to bring myself and my friend breakfast in bed if we were too hungover! The breakfast was brilliant and nothing was ever too much trouble for Claire and her partner. I will definitely be staying here again when I return to Blackpool...you won\'t find anywhere much better than this!

Central location, 10 minutes to Blackpool Tower. Spacious,spotlessly clean en suite room with comfortable beds and free wifi. Great choice for breakfast, including full English,and generous portions. Claire, who runs the hotel, was brilliant, very helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble - she even got up early so we could have an early breakfast. And if all that wasn\'t enough, Claire even came to our rescue when we found ourselves with a flat battery when we were due to leave, she provided a set of jump leads and her car to ensure we were soon on our way.

My daughter and I stayed at The Carlee for two nights. We were greeted on arrival with enthusiasm from the owner. It became apparent very quickly that the security of the building was high - important to us as traveling on our own. Parking was easy and available as promised. Our room was well decorated and had a homely feel to it. A very good selection of tea/ coffee and hot chocolate awaited us with biscuits and Sweets! TV with DVD player and the facility to loan DVD\'s from the lounge downstairs was a huge hit with my daughter. Excellent Wifi too. Room and bathroom clean. Breakfast was faultless... Offering everything you would expect and more! The B&B offered a good balance of homely and hotel! I will return next year and feel confident to recommend to others.

A one night spur of the moment booking. BRILLIANT!

Claire emailed on the morning of arrival to inform that the room was available early and we could park and book in at our leisure. A lovely touch . Was greeted like old friends and given all the info we required.

Room spotless. All the necessary info was available in a comprehensive and interesting info pack. Slept like a log

Breakfast was truly scrumptious and plenty of it

Claire and husband were friendly and chatty without being intrusive,a true skill.

I understand that this lovely family have only been the proud owners of Carlee for a year or so but they have a lovely establishment and should be proud of the way they have taken to a very demanding business venture

Thank you for a PERFECT stay.

Needless to say I will be visiting again.

we stayed at Carlee for one night as we were visiting Blackpool for the Miss Dance Competition held at the Winter Gardens. There were 10 of us with ages ranging between 16 - 82!! Carlee is far enough away from the town and its many stag and hen parties! But close enough to walk into the centre (approx. 10 - 15 mins walk). We were given a warm welcome and had a lovely and comfortable stay at Carlee. The breakfast was very good and Claire was friendly and accommodating. She even let us leave our cars parked outside for the whole of Sunday even though we had checked out! We would not hesitate to recommend Carlee to anyone visiting Blackpool.

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Blackpool Tower - Landmark

Distance 0.61 miles (0.97 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
