“The extra mile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Recommend for that great escape. A warm welcoming bed and breakfast which really goes the extra mile. Lots of additional features and touches that makes it worth the four stars recently awarded. Relax in the bar on arrival or retreat to your cosy room but wake refreshed to enjoy a fantastic breakfast with lots of advice to fill your day ( if you choose to ).

This is my first review on a computer being new to computing at my age , being coming to Blackpool for over 20yrs & stayed in many BnB's around Hornby / Palatine/ & Reads Roads & My husband & I & our friends were very impressed with the Hornby Villa. It's the cleanest place we've stayed in. Our friends had the super king & we had the standard double which was the smaller of the two but to be honest I'd rather have that room at the Hornby Villa than many of the other places we've stayed at even if their rooms were slightly larger. Like I said the cleanliness is outstanding ,& we had tea coffee , fruit teas , hot choc , bottled water,biscuits. in the bathroom you won't find mouldy showers here & they even provided hairspray & deodorants with other toiletries. The breakfast was lovely with a lot of choice to choose from & if you don't want the big breakfast like me I had a yogurt fruit muesli starter followed by smoked salmon & a poached egg which I had to try because again I've never been offered smoked salmon for breakfast in other BnB's in Blackpool. David & Gill the owners are two lovely people who you can tell really enjoy what they do & can't do enough for you. I'd like to say ill be writing many more reviews now were on the Internet but they will only be of The Hornby Villa now as this is the place for us in future ... Brilliant stay thank you from Lynn,Harry, Madge & Malcolm.

Room Tip: Super king room our friends had & the standard double although smaller of the two was adequate...

Thank you LBFITZY51 for reviewing your 1st stay with us & wer'e sure it won't be your last now your a "silver surfer " on the internet as they say...lol. It was great to meet you all & have a drink in the bar while telling us all the stories over the years of your experiences in Blackpool B&B''s...Some were so funny, some were quite shocking, & some just unbelievable at the level of cleanliness & service in some places it's laughable....There are so many to choose from but with reviews like yours from well seasoned travellers to Blackpool over the years we hope potential guests get an insight into the quality of accommadation we offer, even if some of our rooms are smaller in size to others & this is therfore reflected in our pricing structure. Glad you liked both rooms you stayed in & the breakfast & just about everything judging by your review.....Thank you & we look forward to seeing you all again in the future... Regards Gill & David

we had already stayed at the Hornby Villa hotel for two years before David & Jill took it over(in January for the pigeon show held annually) it was clean and warm and the food was good, since these two lovely people took it over it has been improved every year,there are 5 of us in our party and each and every one of them feel as if they are their personal friends, the rooms are so warm and cosy, the food cannot be faulted and David & Jill can,t do enough for you to make your stay the best anywhere around, when you travel to Blackpool in the heart of winter it,s just so very nice to feel we are going to our second home,

Room Tip: we all have the same rooms every year, myself and hubby always have room 4 which is a superior room...

Returned to the Hornby Villa for our anniversary & was greeted by Gill & David like old friends. We stayed in the Superking room this time which was newly decorated & a new bed which was so comfy I wish I could have taken it home! We have been 3 times now & wouldn't go anywhere else in Blackpool. The place is spotless & the breakfast choices are brilliant this time I tried the salmon & eggs and it was yummy. We can highly recommend this BnB to anyone looking for a nice break. Thanks Gill&David for a great stay keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Superking bed is so comfy!!
