“lovely stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

hotel was spotlessly clean, fluffy towels and the breakfasts were fantastic. really enjoyed our stay, david and gill were very welcoming and could not do enough for you, would recommend to family and friends. Very central to tower and promenade, we stayed in superior double which was large, we had deodrant, hairspray, shampoo, bodywash and the room was serviced if you wanted fresh towels etc

Stayed for a 3night break on 21st Sept 2012. 2nd year here and felt we were visiting friends as DAVID and GILL are such a lovely couple.Room spotlessly clean and 2 single beds zipped together as a superkingsize oh sooo comfy.New small fridge very handy and well stocked hospitality tray and toiletries in the bathroom.Excellent breakfasts and for non scots you make a mean bowl of porridge.Close to attractions but quiet at night.NO noisy hens or stags.WILL be back next year.

Many thanks JanetteG123 for reviewing you stay in a Family 3 Room, Although it was just the 1 night & we didn't see much of you as you made the most of visit to Blackpool , we are pleased you had an excellent stay & that you would recommend anybody to stay with us. .All our rooms have a little theme to them as we wanted to make them a bit different from the usual & sometimes drab rooms you get in some B&B'S so we are glad you liked your "Indian Room"...Look forward to seeing you all again sometime...Regards Gill & David

Just had a short break in Blackpool and it was the first time we have stayed at the Hornby Villa. From the warm welcome we received until we left two days later, nothing negative could be said about the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious, great location, and along with lovely hosts, David and Gill, you couldn't ask for more. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was superb and we will definitely be going back there again.
