Many thanks Jax1953 for reviewing your 2 night stay in one of our Standard Double ensuite rooms, We are glad you found everything needed within the room to enjoy your stay with us.
It was the last room type avaialble when you booked so there were no other choice of room on your dates. They are our smaller rooms but we do have larger rooms avaialbe if more space & comfort is an essential part of your stay & quite often these sell out first. We would be glad to welcome you back to try a stay in one of them & we will e-mail you our offers for the larger rooms....However you still had a great stay despite the weather & got to see the fireworks. Regards Gill & David

We stayed over the bank holiday weekend and received a lovely welcome from David, we were able to leave our car at the front of the b & b which i was happy about .We stayed in the Africa room which our 11 year old thought was fantastic, we had plenty of room compared to other family rooms we had stayed in it seemed huge by comparison my only problem was the sink was in the room with the beds and not the bathroom so it wasn't ideal for a family with a young son of 11, we had to get showers morning and night if you get my drift .....breakfast was ample and set you up till well into the afternoon and the porridge is to die for -thankyou Gill just like mums . Its very organised and very well managed , everything seems to have been thought of including ear plugs for the sea gulls , i think our gull wore boots in a morning as it stomped on the roof haha.. The hornby is in good walking distance for the center but not near enough to hear the night life ....Just wish Blackpool was cleaned up ..

Room Tip: 2nd floor loud with seagulls stomping on the roof

Hello Joanne L thanks for reviewing your stay for the 3 of you in our 2nd floor Family En-suite room...We are pleased you liked the size of the Large room, being a regular visitor to Blackpool you know only too well as you mentioned to us alot of family rooms are small & crammed in many other B&B''s...Seagulls are a pesky nuisance at some times of the year with thier noise especially when they have young.....We also have a Family room on the 1st floor with no roof for them to land on....but again this also has a sink just outside of the shower room beacause of the layout of the room & waste water pipework...Another alternative which may be good for you would be our Family 3 combo which is 2 rooms next door to each other offered with a discount for family use then you each have your own en-suite shower room too...we'll e-mail you further details of this offer & hopefully see you all again....Regards Gill & David

Many thanks to you both for another fantastic stay.
Myself and the boys really enjoyed your hospitality and feel you could not have been any better hosts.
The food was excellent as always and the room was again excellent just what the 3 of us needed after a long drive up to you.
Even the sun was out which was another bonus.

Could not recommend the Hornby Villa any higher. Excellent 5*****

Many Thanks

Me and my partner have just returned after a 3 night stay at the Hornby Villa Hotel and we are so sad to be home. We got the train into Blackpool north station and the hotel was only 5-10 minute walk from the station.

We arrived at the hotel and was greeted by David who was so polite and friendly (he even knew us by first name as soon as we walked in)

David gave us all the info we needed about the hotel including the breakfast menu (you could choose the day before what you wanted for breakfast which was great and speeded up the breakfast process)

We were shown to our room (we stayed in room 3 which we were told was one of the smaller doubles before our arrival via email) but the room was perfectly fine for us. We had a welcome pack with chocolates on the bed and We had lovely clean towels, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, water, squash facilities, a lovely shower room with all the essentials including deodorant and small sewing kit. Plenty of room for clothes to be put away or hung up on hangers, a fan incase it was warm, a colour TV with free view and best of all for us.... FREE WIFI! We took the laptop and watched a few films on Netflix!

I was really looking forward to breakfast and it DID NOT DISSAPOINT!!! The breakfast cooked by Gill was just gorgeous, the bacon especially was delicious (no fat and thick cut) I loved the choice for breakfast too! You could choose from a lighter menu including beans on toast, or egg on toast etc. (I have added a photo of our breakfast because I just loved it, I looked forward to this every morning)

Gill and David were the perfect hosts and they deserve to have the reputation and definitely deserve the 4 stars they have for the hotel.
The location is perfect, the food was delicious, the rooms were clean, you had everything you needed for an enjoyable stay!

We will definitely be returning here and will be recommending it to friends and family.

Well a BIG thank you to you ShellyLee1 for your indepth review of your 3nt stay...We are so pleased you had a great stay in room 3...Yes it's one of our smaller rooms & i always inform people on this when booking a standard double en-suite & it is reflected in our pricing structure. We like to think the rooms offer good value for money when you think of the amenities we provide in the room along with our high standrds of cleanliness & that delicious breakfast you loved..Our breakfast order forms were introduced to speed up breakfast on a morning & not keep guests waiting too long, some guests still like to order in the morning & that is their preference. We're here to please & to make sure you have as enjoyable stay as possible...& judging by your review you certainly did just that...We shall look forward to seeing you two again...Regards Gill & David
