“cannot be faulted”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

we have stayed here every January since David & Gill took over the Hornby villa, we go for the yearly pigeon show with friends, we really look forward to going as it,s just like home from home, we have the same room which is spotlessly clean and very spacious, as everyone knows Blackpool can be rather cold and windy in January but we never seem to feel it as we are sent off in the morning with the most beautiful breakfast, enough to fill us until arriving back at teatime, happy in the knowledge that we are( after the short walk from the Winter gardens ) going to be treated to the beautiful aroma of home cooking as we open the door, these two people are what Excellence is all about,they become friends with just about all of their guests, we certainly class them as such,I for one would not be happy going to Blackpool in January if I thought there was no David, Gill and Hornby Villa, oh and of course our lovely warm room and snuggly spotlessly clean comfortable bed, they are a shining example of what a B&B should be .TOP MARKS YOU TWO XXXXXXXX

Room Tip: our party take up four rooms and they are all excellent, just depends what size of room you are goin...

Many thanks kingbilly1 for reviewing your 4nt Mon to Fri break in our Family 4 Combo,,,, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with you & your partner in a double room & your two teenage children in the next door room. This combo works well to provide more privacy for families with older children & is offered at a family discounted rate than booking at basic double & twin room prices. Glad you all enjoyed the breakfast choices & we look forward to seeing you all again....Regards Gill& David

First of all id like to thank David & Gill for the fantastic level of service given to myself and my girlfriend. Onto the review, I don't think ill stay in a better B&B, the level of care and attention David & Gill have put into their B&B is second to none they have thought of everything, nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in room 5 (the French 4 poster room) best room I have ever stayed in, really didn't want to leave, the 4 poster bed was very comfortable with lovely bedding, we had fresh milk left for us in the fridge for tea making (which was always well stocked) with biscuits. The room was very clean and had a lovely smell as soon as we walked in, bathroom was also very clean, even had deodorants for men and woman which I was grateful for as I forgot mine. The breakfast in the morning was top class, selection of cereals, porridge which I had every morning (very nice) and a full English breakfast, smaller hot breakfast items were available which Louise took advantage of. Overall I cant speak highly of this B&B enough and to be honest I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when I go back to Blackpool again. Thanks again David & Gill you were great cant wait to come back. Kind Regards Chris & Louise

Room Tip: Room 5 Best Room Ever.

My wife and I only had one night at this superb establishment but would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The overall experience was totally exceptional. The room was very clean and obviously looked after by people who care.. The breakfast was lovely with a choice second to none and service perfect. Our thanks to Gill and David from Ken and Jane.

Many thanks Kenneth A for reviewing your stay in one of our Standard Double en-suite rooms, Although it was just the 1 night we seem to have left you with a good impression of the acoommodation & service we offer our guests. Our standard doubles are the smaller of our rooms but ideal for short stays & good value for money...Hope to see you both again in the future....Regards Gill & David

after having a disaster with a booking we had made in another hotel that turned out to be not quite what it should have been we were lucky enough to find the Hornby villa , we received a friendly welcome straight from the start and this did not change the four nights we were there
. the proprietors david and gill were very friendly people willing to help in anyway they could . the rooms were very clean and were refreshed everyday , there were drink making facilitys in the room and these were also restocked every day along with some very nice biscuits :-) . david and gill would always speak to you on first name terms and this made us feel very comfortable . the breakfast in the morning is at a very high standard and has everything u would desire if not u only have to ask . we will definitely be staying again and would advise anyone of staying in blackpool wanting warm and friendly at a very high standard then this is the place for you . thanks for making us so welcome xx michelle & gary x

Hello Michelle L thanks for reviewing your 4 night stay in a standard double ensuite room...We were pleased you could finally relax & enjoy your stay in Blackpool with us after the 1st nights experience you had in another local B&B where by it was so bad you checked out the next morning & then found us online....By what you were telling us about the place it should really be shut down it was sooo bad!! , There are so many places to choose from in Blackpool & picking the right one must be a minefield for potential guests looking to book. However you found us & we are glad you had a great break in the end, & by reviewing your stay gives people an insight into our high standards all round & we shall see you both again....Regards Gill & David

Many thanks Barry f for reviewing your Mon to Fri stay with us. We are pleased that our Family Combo of a double Ensuite with the twin next door at our discounted family rate worked well for you . This is offered to families with older children who require a little more privacy than sharing 1 daily room. Glad you all enjoyed your stay & look forward to seeing you all again in the future....
