“Value for money.”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Arrived 6th aug 2012. Was greeted by both David and Gilly have stayed there previous and i forgot how nice it was being home from home. Felt very comfortable in our surroundings and couldnt ask for better hosts as they were fantastic at making us feel welcome. I am looking forward to our return vist with them. Would highly recomend it to everybody wanting to stay in blackpool.

My husband & I stayed for 3 nights, we had a wonderful room - the superior double. The room was spotless and the bed was so comfy. Within easy walking distance of the Winter Gardens, shops & the sea front. As for the breakfast....it was lovely! Set you up for the day. Would recommend anyone to stay and will definately be back if we come to Blackpool again. Thanks David & Gill for your warm welcome.

We booked after seeing the great reviews on here and they were all true! David and Gill were perfect hosts and no request was too small. The room was spacious and the themed country rooms were a nice touch (we stayed in India). The bed was also one of the most comfortable I've slept in (important as we were there for 9 nights!). Great location - not too far from the main shops and seafront, but far enough that you still have some peace and quiet! Loved the fact that they did not accept stag and hen dos. Breakfast was fantastic with a wide variety to choose from. We will definitely be returning next time we stay in blackpool, and I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a superior double room for more space. Worth the extra money. If you are driving reserve a pa...

my husband and I have just spent a loverly weekend at this great hotel,We felt comfortable from the start as the welcome was very pleasant,Our room was the economy suite but it had everything one needs for short stay ,the ensuite was spotlessly clean as was the rest of the room.the breakfast was excellent as you could choose what you wanted on your plate and it was cooked to perfection,so beautifully clean,good food and loverly hosts what more could you ask for.It is also well located as only a short walk from all of the action but far enough away to get a good night sleep.

Many thanks susan t for the review of your 2nt stay in our Economy Ensuite Room. It was the last room available when you booked but we were pleased you found it adeqate for your enjoyable weekend break...Our smaller rooms (Economy & Standard) are ideal for a short breaks especially if your out & about all day enjoying the sights of Blackpool..We do have larger rooms Superking/FourPoster & Superior/ for more comfort & space & these tend to sell first most of the time. However the main thing is we have excellent standards of cleanliness across all our rooms & we strive to give guests the best service we can ...even little things get noticed like letting guests choose excatly want they want on their breakfast plate which you enjoyed so much...Look forward to seeing you again...Regards Gill & David

My partner and I have just had a 3 nights break at this hotel, and all I can say is we stayed here under the old owners and it was more like fawlty towers than a hotel, but this time under David and Gill what a transformation. On arrival we were welcomed like old friends by David and made to feel at home. The room was spotless even Alex Poliitzi would be impressed. Breakfasts were excellant what more can we say. To the question would we stop here again 110% YES without looking elsewhere.

Hello MarkxxxHelen Thanks for your review of 3nts in a Standard Double En-suite. It's nice to meet guests who stayed at The Hornby Villa before we took over 5 years ago who have read our reviews & decide to stay again & see the difference. Judging by your comments what a difference to your last stay. We have put alot of hard work into making The Hornby Villa a quality place to stay with very high standards of cleanliness & hospitality.. & feel rewarded with our recent award for excellence from Tripadvisor & the many positve reviews guests like yourself leave us..Look forward to seeing you both again.

A friend and I stayed here for the weekend, we had a wonderful time. david and Gill were lovely hosts. Breakfast was lovely, hot shower, comfy beds, hardly any street noise and very clean. The hotel is really well positioned, walking distance from the front, but feels far enough away from louds pubs and clubs. They have a good range of rooms, one with bunk beds so will be taking the kids next time for the weekend.
Would definatly recommend a stay here.
Keep up the good work Gill and David
