Holmleigh house in Seaton is a real delight. Gaynor is very welcoming and the house is beautiful. A cosy real fire in the lounge with numerous books and DVDs if you want. The rooms and en-suites are lovely and spacious with everything you need. The breakfasts were very good with choices of fresh fruit, dried fruits, cereals and yogurts as... More

What a fab place! Never got to meet Gaynor but he went above and beyond for us via email. I can't fault anything, breakfast was spot on and the room was cosy and clean. Everything was done to a "T" Thank you again Gaynor, will definitely will be back and hopefully get to meet you. Best regards Amy

My family and I booked 3 rooms for 2 nights at very short notice at Holmleigh House and consider ourselves very lucky. Gaynor, the owner and host was excellent at every level and clearly enjoys running her beautiful B&B. The breakfast was out of this world, better than any 5 star hotel (and I manage a hotel in Turkey) I... More

My husband and I booked in to stay for the week so we could explore the Jurassic Coast and we had a great time. Gaynor was a great hostess and the breakfasts deserve their award winning status. The room was very clean and comfortable and well stocked, in fact, it was a home from home. The B&B is also perfectly... More

Our experience of this lovely home and welcoming bed and breakfast is that every other establishment should be guided by Gaynors finesse. We were welcomed as friends where nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fantastic. We would recommend to stay here anytime.

My boyfriend and I booked in for a long weekend away, we were so happy to have found Gaynor and Holmleigh House. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the beds especially, were really comfy. We also really liked the guests lounge downstairs, it's a nice extra space to relax in. The real star of the show was the breakfasts! I... More

Gaynor (my host) was friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. B&B was spotless, airy, and nicely appointed. Bed comfortable, shower good. Wifi fast. Breakfast (eggs with smoked salmon) very tasty. Highly recommend.

Although this B&B is in a good position, the parking is difficult (I had to pay to park in the Town Centre) and I found the proprietress a little distant. She felt she was helping by moving us from a family room to 2 doubles in the top of the house but the bathroom, being under the eaves made it... More

Thank you for your review.I am sorry that you experienced some problems during your stay. Parking is free and unrestricted all around my house and the public car park, which is free in the evening is a two minute walk away so I am not sure why you parked in the Town centre. I did indeed think I was doing... More
