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.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at The Horby Villa & we weren't dissapointed! David & Gill made us feel most welcome & remembered us from our 1st visit. We stayed in the India themed family room & it was a lovely room to stay in (with a fab pink bathroom) It is clean & very spacious with more than enough room for 3 people. Breakfast was lovely with a choice of anything you wanted. They even catered for my husbands daughter who is not keen on fried breakfast, but loves sausages. There was a wide range of cereals & plenty of toast, so she was very happy. The B&B is situated close to the seafront, but just far away so there is not a lot of noise. Also there was free wifi in the room which was nice to have. Car parking is also offered at a great rate & because it is so close to the front, there was no need to move the car all weekend, which saves a fortune on petrol & car parking. All in all, this B&B is the best we have ever stayed in. David & Gill run the place superbly & we would not stay anywhere else on future trips to Blackpool! :)

Room Tip: We have stayed in 2 of the rooms, both of which were very spacious & comfortable. All the rooms...

Many thanks CristinaR for reviewing your stay in a Family 3 Ensuite room...Although you & hubby had stayed with us before it was lovely to also meet your daughter on this visit & we are pleased we found something at breakfast time that she was pleased with & enjoyed so much. We like to leave the choice of breakfast to each individual guest so they can choose excatly what they want on thier plate as not everybody likes the same...We are pleased you enjoyed your stay & see you all agin in the future....Regards Gill & David

Friendly, spotless, excellent mattress, great value, tasty breakfast. Next visit will book bigger room. Able to park is a bonus. Couldn't get wifi but not too bothered. Close to attractions but busy road may keep some awake, we were ok though. Felt very welcome and comfortable here and would recommend strongly. Decor possibly needs modernising but that is just personal taste - it was fresh and in good order. Many thanks we enjoyed our short stay and will be back.

Hello Swadlin thanks for reviewing your stay, as a last minute booking & the only room we had left we are still pleased you enjoyed your stay in one of our smaller rooms & found the car parking a bonus . We shall look into the matter of not getting the WiFi signal in the room maybe our range extender needs a kick start. We are situated on one of the main roads out of Blackpool & it is busy with traffic during the day, especially at bank holiday weekends but being at the top of Hornby Road its away from the hustle & bustle of noisy nightlife. We are contsantly redecorating rooms year by year to keep them fresh & the room you stayed in is earmarked for a feature wall redecoration at the end of this season..Look forward to seeing you on a return visit....Regards Gill & David

This was my fourth year in a row staying at The Hornby Villa and the third year for the Rebelion festival and as always there is nothing to fault with this hotel.Lovely well kept rooms,spot on hosts and the best breakfast in blackpool!.The addition of a mini fridge in our room this year was also a great touch,perfect for loading with water(or beer!)to set us up for all the punk rock shenanigins.
If your planing a visit to blackpool do yourself a favor and book this hotel you wont regret it!
