Travellers' Choice
The Fossil Tree Hotel was awarded Best Sea view Guesthouse in England at the Travel and Hospitality Awards for 2020 and again in 2021, located on Blackpool's famous Queen's Promenade overlooking the beach on the quieter North Shore. Ideal for those looking for a adults-only Hotel where the emphasis is on your comfort, a good night's rest, spotless cleanliness and a great choice of breakfasts to suit all tastes (including vegetarian and Vegan) If that sound like you, then the award winning Fossil Tree is the place to stay. Located overlooking the beach, just a mile from the centre of Blackpool, yet a million miles from the noise, hustle and bustle of the centre. Popular with mature couples looking for a quiet hotel right on the coast with great access to the tram network and close to Blackpool, Bispham and Cleveleys. The Fossil Tree is licenced and offers a fully stocked 'Honesty' bar and guest lounge overlooking the beach, ideal for catching the sunset, or a cheeky tipple before you venture out for the evening. Plus free parking for all guests, well appointed modern ensuite rooms with full or side sea views and a delicious Fossil Tree breakfast all included in the rate.

A superb hotel that excels in every way,our room was spotlessly clean,it had a very comfortable bed and a fantastic hospitality tray,we spent two nights here and had two wonderful breakfasts, we made use of the honesty bar which was superb value. We found Chris to be a great host,it is so easy to see why the hotel is rated so highly.

This hotel is everything that people tell you Blackpool isn’t! It is the place to stay for a couple or a small group of friends/couples. Spotlessly clean, modern and comfortable. Great breakfast, free on site parking and above all very welcoming hosts. We enjoyed being able to gather in the small promenade view lounge in the evening having drinks from the honesty bar. It was also great that we were allowed to order a food delivery and eat it at the set tables we were allocated for breakfast. First class. Can’t wait to return!

Have just come back from a two night stay at the Fossil, we were really impressed by the hosts attention to detail,effort that has gone into the decor and the knowledge advice from host Chris. The Fossil appealed to us as it is out of the hustle and bustle but close enough to walk into Blackpool that coupled with the free onsite parking means you can leave the car alone for your stay, there is a tram stop just out the front. Breakfast was great and a good selection either continental or full English cooked fresh to order, the room was very clean and had high quality furniture making our stay very enjoyable, would definitely stay again.

Just back from a weekend staying at the fossil hotel in Blackpool. First time visit and glad we booked with Chris and christine as they run a first class hotel and in a great spot. We didn’t want to stay in the heart of Blackpool so being out in the woods nags with easy access to the trams made it an ideal choice and so glad we did. From the friendly welcome to fantastic room and facilities and first class breakfast. So if you want to enjoy Blackpool book and stay at the fossil hotel go on spoil yourself

Stayed for 2 nights, excellent hotel, good location and parking available. Had 2 rooms both were spotlessly clean with all amenities. Side sea view from both rooms we had - see pic. Great breakfast with big choice, hot breakfast cooked to order. Chris the owner was friendly and gave great tips on where to visit. Would definitely stay again.
