“The nicest people in a very central hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW via mobile

We had a lovely time here at the Hornby Villa .... David and Gill went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to look after us. Our daughter received the star treatment and the family room had a South Africa theme which was great fun. We spent 6 nights here and we are very happy to recommend this lovely warm family friendly hotel!

Great place for our short break, Just near enough to walk into town (5 - 10 mins) but also away from all the hustle & bustle.
Owners Gill and David are a lovely couple so friendly and nothing too much trouble. The rooms lovely and clean ,bathroom spotless,Plenty of tea coffee and yummy biscuits in room Breakfast is a very wide range to choose from cooked and a lovely special yogurty museli thing and the French toast was lovely Gill. Liked the fact of having off road parking.

Room Tip: Room 9 overlooks main road but traffic noise not a problem, There is some noise from seagulls but he...

Thanks suhelen for reviewing your 3nt stay in our standard twin ensuite room, We are pleased you enjoyed your break & found us great value with our 3nt season saver discounts. Glad you liked the room & our location in the quieter area of Hornby Rd & yes those seagulls can be a little noisy at this time of year as they are nesting but like you say it's expected in any seaside town . Look forward to seeing you all again in the future. Regards Gill & David

As a lone female traveller on business I was made to feel welcome and safe. The room was clean and well serviced. The owners were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. There was an excellent breakfast which was delicious. It was close to the town centre and seafront but far enough away to be nice and quiet. Overall a great experience and would recommend

Our 3rd Stay at The Hornby Villa and another fab time had, again David and Gill are so welcoming and friendly. Fab breakfasts and comfy warm beds we stayed in the same room as we always do a standard double room which is perfectly adequate for a few nights stay. we may have to check out one of the larger rooms when we next stay which will hopefully be in August.
Thanks for a lovely stay.

I chose this B&B because of the glowing reviews and the on-site parking (I worry about my car!) and all the reviews were correct! It is an absolutely spotless B&B with such kind host's.
We stayed in the room with the super kingsize bed which is very large. The bathroom was lovely and clean with complimentary toiletries. The breakfast was beautiful and cooked to perfection! They cooked me a vegetarian option which was beautiful.
The owners cannot do enough for you!
The Hornby Villa is close enough to the bustle of Blackpool but far enough away to be relaxing! We will definitely be staying there again (if we're visiting Blackpool again) and I can highly recommend the Hornby Villa!

Thanks Wormarack for reviewing your stay in the Suoerking room we are pleased you enjoyed your stay & the vegetarian breakfast which was problem as we stock Linda McCartney vegi sausages all the time.... Glad you found the car parking a bonus.... parking can be an issue in Blackpool but luckily we can offer parking spaces on site & off site (2min walk away) . For accommodation booked online parking is allocated by us on arrival either in the onsite OR off site car park ....But like yourself if you defiantly require on site parking accommodation must be booked over the phone so we check the parking diary. .... We shall look forward to seeing you again on a return visit....regards Gill & David
