The Canasta Hotel was built in 1863.  We know that because we have the original deeds.  It was built by a Thomas Skinner of the Blackpool Sands Company.

We purchased the Canasta in 2000 and bought next door (The Lawnlea) in 2001 and today we are a 30 bedroomed seaside hotel offering a bed and breakfast service.

We enjoy a lot of repeat business and always look forward to making new friends.

If there’s anything you want to know – just ask us – it will help me think of something to put in here!

Oh….I should mention we’re up for sale.  We don’t mind advertising that fact and do realise that it will affect bookings (it has done!) but we may as well let everyone know – you never know where the buyer will come from.    More info
