Scarlets are very pleased to be the current holders of an award, The National Transgender Award for "trans service company".
Thank you very much all that voted for us, we are very touched. A copy of the certificate is below, the award can be viewed in our new trophy cabinet in the bar!
Welcome to Scarlets website.
Please note we DO NOT use booking sites, we prefer to charge less to our guests. You must deal with us direct as if you try booking online with tripadvisor it will lead you to think we are fully booked, then direct you to other hotels & you will be disappointed!
Latest news: We now have access to off road parking space for one car across the road from Scarlets, its £5 per day and first to book it gets it! Hoping to add more spaces in the next few weeks.
A quality and top value hotel run by Jenny & Sarah, two fun loving trans-girls.
Scarlets cater exclusively to transgender community and we work hard to create a safe comfortable friendly environment for all our guests.
Our aim is the be the very best standard and best value T-girl hotel possible, profit is vital for Scarlets to stay open but it is not the driving force behind what we do, so you will find top value here with us.
We want you to enjoy your time with us and to be looking forward to your next visit, so will try to make your stay as enjoyable as we can. The vast majority of our new guests return again and again, that says it all really.
The Hotel is located at 87 Lord Street (FY1 2DG), right in the vibrant heart of the North Shore area but at the quiet end of the street (away from the noisy clubbers....), only a few minutes walk into the shops or the nightlife, a perfect location and no need for expensive taxi rides. The nearest bar we use is ony a minutes totter in heels away and a great mix of people in there. We are open all year round with just short breaks away very occasionally to relax ourselves.
Lord Street is known for its quality small hotels, the owners here tend to look after their properties, so you will find the very best accommodation to be had (not all are like Scarlets though......).
The hotel now has 12 comfortable fully refurbished en suite rooms available, sleeping 23 in total. Scarlets have a mixture of single/twin/double rooms, all of the rooms are spacious enough that we do not have beds up against any wall! Many of the hotel rooms in Blackpool cannot say that, check out the photos for yourself.
All rooms have private shower/toilet facilities of course as nothing else should be acceptable these days, sadly not true of a some of the old style B&Bs here in Blackpool.
Fully refurbished and even a rolling plan in action for continuous improvements, we fully intend to be the best and to maintain that level whilst being extremely good value for money.
You will find yourself in a very accepting part of town, a great mix of people here without any prejudices, so you will find a warm welcome around and about including the bars.
The ground floor is styled in an Art Deco way, lots of Tiffany lights and a great atmosphere to socialise in, or simply chill and relax in the sunny lounge. Lots of full sized mirrors and red themed seating/carpets make for wonderful photo opportunties.
There is a licensed bar which will be open every evening and have very reasonable prices, a great start to the night out or a place to stay and chat as you wish. Many local girls meet up with us at weekends prior to heading to the bars/clubs in town. You will never be alone unless you prefer to be as we escort our guests out (nearest bars only one minute away), all for free unlike dressing services that charge for the service, Scarlets is great value as always.
Seamless super fast WiFi is available free of charge throughout the hotel including all bedrooms. All rooms are equipped with Tea and Coffee making facilities, 28" or 32" LED HD flatscreen tvs, USB chargers for your devices (bring your own lead please but we may be able to help if you have forgotten) adequate illuminated mirrors and a full length mirror in each & every room. We provide towels (please bring your own if you usually destroy them with makeup!), facecloths and complimentary toiletries (soap/shower gel/shower cap/vanity kit & sewing repair kit). Irons & ironing boards are available on each floor & hairdryers available on request.
We envisage the hotel will be popular with girls that are already used to going out and about, but don't let inexperience deter you from coming to us, we all know how scary it all was the first times out. You will get lots of support here from us. We "escort" our guests out to a fabulous local bar which is only a minutes walk, so you will never be alone unless you want to be.
We have now introduced a late check out as standard, no additional charges applied for this unlike many other hotels you may have stayed in, 12.00 mid-day, but please do not stretch it further as we must get the rooms cleaned to a high standard and prepared for the next guests. Check-in is from 2.00pm please.
There are dressing services locally, we do not intend to go into this aspect but can put you in touch if you wish.
We are very fortunate to have access to a very good makeup lady, she will visit the hotel and give makeovers by appointment normally around 6.00pm, so you will be ready for a night out afterwards. So if its a glam evening look you are after or a bit of expert advice this could be just the thing for you, she charges only £35 for this service which is extremely good value, many charge double this rate and are not at all experienced with dealing with our particular needs. Try to make the appointment as early as you can so we can secure her services, she does get busy at times. Please note that her payment is taken at time of booking and is non-refundable, too many change their minds and it is not fair on her that she has booked you in and have turned down other appointments, so she gets paid anyhow as thats the decent thing to do, no way we would want to risk losing her services as she is very very good!
Scarlets is ideal for hosting a social group outing or a birthday/anniversary celebration and we can sort a buffet at very reasonable cost (typically £2.50 per head).
Please take note that we are a very classy establishment, our guests include partners (male & female) and we expect everyone to feel comfortable & at home. We do NOT cater for sex parties or meets/hookups etc. Guest are not permitted to bring non-residents back to the rooms and will be ejected if they do so. It is not safe at all to pick people up and bring them back, you would compromise everyones safety & security and it will not be allowed.
Sorry but Scarlets do not accept Stag/Hen parties, actually no we are not sorry!
