I had a lovely stay at the Homestar. It was absolute value for money, comfortable stay and breakfast was great, so much choice. I had a single room, it was quite small but more than adequate. Kath was very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again

A nice welcome upon our visit. Very polite. The room was of a good size and clean. The cooked breakfast was average. But plenty of other things to have. It's in a great location with the town centre and beach a very short walk away.Overall I found our visit pleasant and will stay here again on our next visit

Stayed at the home star Skegness in August. Great room very clean & tidy. Great price. Very pleasant owners & staff. 5 minutes walk in to Skegness town centre & attractions. Parking can be a bit restricted best thing to do is find a parking spot & don't move your car till you leave.

Breakfast good and plenty, cereals and yoghurt cooked breakfast and unlimited toast and jams. Will definitely stay again.
