The room was lovely and very homely. The staff service and the breakfast was faultless. We would recommend the guest house and will defiantly be booking... More

The guesthouse is perfectly situated between the Central and South Piers. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and nothing was too much trouble. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay... More

They use their experience of running pubs, a restaurant, and a countryside Inn in Wales, as well as large Scout camps! Holmlea is an inviting and traditional Edwardian building, still retaining some of its original features; and located in one of the popular, quieter, and traditional holiday streets based in South Shore - ideally located between the Pleasure beach and Tower, and for the many attractions that range from the Opera House, the Winter Gardens, The Ice Shows, Concerts, the Illuminations ....The list goes on !
