We booked Holmlea as a late minute decision the night before bank holiday so to be honest we weren't expecting a lot.
The reviews seemed fantastic but after visiting Blackpool before the state of some of the B&B's, we weren't expecting much!
As soon as we arrived we parked our car & were greeted by Andy. We were made to feel welcome straight away. The hotel was beautiful, modern & extremley clean!
We were shown to our room. We had booked the only room left, the twin room on top floor. They had warned us it was small so I was very pleasantly suprised when we saw our room. A decent size, beautifully decorated & lovely clean bathroom. The beds were so comfy & I can honestly say I think it was the comfiest bed I've ever stayed in....
The location was perfect too, about a 30 second walk to the beach & close to all major attractions but yet far enough back to not get a lot of noise.
Breakfast was perfect, felt catered for & well looked after.
I really enjoyed the night & would definitely choose to stay here again!
