Inn on the Prom, Lytham St Annes

Posted By Hazel Winstanley / 9th May 2016 / Hotels / 0 Comments

Hi again dog friends,

Another day, another hotel to review – it’s a hard life being a ‘dog blogger’ 😉

After our stay in Blackpool, Hum took me down the coast to Lytham St. Anne’s which apparently has been voted Top 10 Place in the North West to live and is also a great place to come and visit.

Getting to our hotel was fun – Hum got really angry with Mrs Sat Nav who kept making us go round in circles but eventually she chose to ignore the talking machine lady and we found Inn on the Prom @InnProm.

We got a really, REALLY warm welcome from Yasmin who recognised Hum’s voice from booking us in and she also knew who I was!! That IS GOOD dog friendly service!

You can only stay in standard rooms at Inn on the Prom if you have a dog with you so no sea view for Hum 🙁 She WAS disappointed about that. We all know about her and her love of a good view….

However the room was beautifully decorated and Hum had a four-poster bed which cheered her up AND guess what! The décor matched my blankie – how good is that! How does Hum find places that match my blankie so often!

Hum said the bathroom was a real let-down (more on that later) but there was lots about the room that made her happy. There was a big mirror near power points on a dressing table; a full length mirror also; lots of storage; plenty of milk for teas and coffees and of course the four-poster bed.

We unpacked and set up my Rovernighter and went to the bar for refreshment.

Dogs are allowed in the bar and you can eat there together in the evening, however Hum had booked us out to a dog friendly bistro so I can’t tell you about dinner at Inn on The Prom.

Although there are lovely cushions with dogs on them in the lounge and pictures of dogs up the staircase, nothing is provided for dogs at Inn on The Prom – you need to bring your own bed, bowls, blankies, food & treats. There weren’t even any dog biscuits behind the bar 🙁 Water is provided freely however.

Hum spoke to Debbie, the hotel manageress after our meal and she said she would certainly talk to the owner about providing more dog friendly stuff if only some biscuits at the bar.

Hum and I slept well – Hum’s bed was very comfy, the curtains made the room really dark and it was really quiet. All made for a good night’s sleep. In fact Hum didn’t wake up till after 8.00 a.m.!

Hum was still going on about her disappointment with the bathroom – it was very basic, dated, there was a crack in the basin pedestal, no toiletries except a small bar of soap, not enough towels initially and no bathmat provided unless you asked for it. Hum did of course – she hates a wet bathroom floor apparently. Another of her many foibles!

This morning we noted a man leaving bath mats outside other rooms so maybe Hum isn’t so odd and other folk feel the same…

I got an amazing welcome from Charlotte in reception when we went down for breakfast and then the lovely Sara came and made sure we had a nice table by the window (Hum got a view) and took our order. Sara was most kind making sure she brought everything to us so I wouldn’t have to be left while Hum went to the buffet and indeed she even brought extra food for me!

The staff at Inn on The Prom are REALLY lovely!! Super kind and friendly and helpful!

Inn on The Prom has its own little garden where I could play ball and chase with Hum and there is a lovely walk just across from the hotel through little gardens but the beach there has restrictions for part of the year.

There are other beaches nearby without restrictions however so later on we visited them and had a good run.

What do I think of Inn on the Prom? Well the staff are amazing but they really could do with providing stuff for us four-legs so I have to knock a paw print off for that.

AND Hum wanted me to knock another off for only letting us stay in standard rooms so no view and poor quality bathroom.

However I will counter that with how lovely everyone was so she is only allowed a half paw for her stuff.

I would defo stay here again and recommend it to you to bring your humans. Inn on the Prom is a really friendly hotel for dogs and humans alike.
