This was our 3rd time back and it is like staying with friends.David and Gill are so welcoming.The room was spotless and this year had new cabinets and a wardrobes.Hospitality tray with tea ,coffee,galaxy hot drink ,biscuits and 2bottles of water in fridge and chocolate with breakfast menu which can be filled in the night before.Shower room had spare toiletries and soft fluffy towels.Superkingsize bed very comfy.Large choice at breakfast ,freshly cooked and very tasty porridge.Near enough to all the attractions but quiet in the evening to get a good nights sleep.No Stags or Hens.Will definitely be back next year.

just returned from a 3 night stay.given a lovely welcome by david on arrival.showed to the "Chinese room"which was lovely extremely clean and comfortable.meals were very good with a wide choice and none of this "breakfast will be served at nine".you are given a 90 minute window and you say what time within that window you would like your meal so really good for those that like to get up a little later than the rest.parking spaces round the back was an extra bonus.we would highly recommend a stay at the villa we were highly delighted and will more than like be going back.thankyou david and gill for making it a lovely break.x

Many thanks Janetp for reviewing your stay in room 2 one of our Standard double en-suite rooms for 3 nights.We pride ourselves on our high standards of cleanliness to which you mention & we are pleased you liked our flexible breakfast times..We offer Early start breakfasts from 8am from a choice menu & the Fulll works from 8.30 to 9.30am again from a choice menu.

We have Guaranteed parking avaialble when prebooked before arrival on telephone or internert bookings..not many places can offer that as parking is difficult in the central area sometimes at busy times....Look forward to seeing you both again...Regards Gill & David

We have just returned from a two night stay in Blackpool, we booked up at The Hornby Villa for one night but on arrival we decided to stay for a 2nd night which was not a problem for our very welcoming hosts.
On arrival,we were greeted by David who straight away made us feel very welcome, we were quickly shown to our room and were given all the information needed for our stay.
We were given a wide choice on what we wanted for breakfast and my fussiness over how I like my eggs cooked was dealt with by Gill,who made the best fried egg I have ever had (Thanks)!
We stayed in room 8 which was a little on the small side as was the shower room but was exactly as stated when we booked up so next time we would book a larger room, the room was immaculately clean and had everything needed. Every detail was catered for,including ear plugs to keep out seagull noise,brilliant!
The Hotel was in a good location for the attractions and is well within walking distance.
We would definitely stay at this hotel again, a big thank you to David and Gill for an enjoyable stay

Room Tip: We chose a standard double room which a tad small but it was right at the top of the house and was v...

Many thanks lyntonscotland for reviewing your 2nt stay in a Standard double en-suite. We are pleased you had a great stay, enjoyed the fried eggs & found our standards of cleanliness high & our location ideal for your stay...While a Standard double en-suite offers good value for money with the high standards offered all round at 4* they are our smaller rooms & this is reflected in our pricing structure, If more space & comfort is an important part of your stay we would love to welcome you back to try a stay in the superking/four poster or superior double & we shall e-mail you further details & special offers for these room types....Regards Gill & David

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.

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
