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

What a lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere and thank you to Gaynor. We arrived earlier than expected and she had a room ready for us in 20 mins. So clean and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of information on hand and the breakfast menu was great. The rooms were excellent with tea/coffee biscuits. Fresh towels in en-suites and bath... More

We have stayed at Holmleigh House many times & it never disappoints! Its always spotlessly clean and very warm & welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable & the little extras are excellent. The breakfasts are the best breakfasts we have ever come across, the amount of choice is amazing! The cooked breakfast uses local produce & they are very tasty!... More

We had the family room at the front of the house which was very nice indeed and the little extras like dressing gowns and toiletries were lovely. Gaynor the owner was a great host and we would certainly recommend staying there. My son particularly liked the pancakes for breakfast!

Both myself, my partner and our little one stated here for New Years Eve. From the moment we arrived we received a five star welcome! The room was fab, the breakfast too. Nothing seemed too much trouble for the owner. It's not very often that I take the trouble to write a review, but this place certainly deserves a mention.... More

This is located in a quiet area of Seaton, within a couple of blocks from the seaside, and restaurants. There is a pleasant park across the street. There is street-parking only, which can be a bit of a challenge, to find something close to the guesthouse. Our room was fairly large, the ensuite shower room was a couple of steps... More
