“Wish we could have stayed longer”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

This is a neat and cosy B&B in a great location, just a couple of minutes walk to the sea and the town centre. Parking was not a problem. Gaynor was the perfect host and did everything to make sure our stay was a good one - even lighting the fire for us before we arrived, which was much appreciated.

The rooms are a good size and very nicely decorated. They were immaculately clean and well stocked with fluffy towels, tea and coffee, etc. The bed was so comfy! There is free wifi and a lounge to unwind in and a separate dining room. The breakfast was delicious and there was a very wide choice - no wonder it's won awards.

B&Bs can be a bit hit and miss but this one was definitely a hit. If we are ever in the area again we would love to come back and stay. I absolutely recommend Holmleigh House.

Every time we visit Seaton (which is a few times a year to visit a relative) we always stay at Holmleigh House! The accommodation is like a home from home, very clean & comfortable! The beds are really comfortable with high quality bedding, everything you need for a perfect nights sleep! The little extras are what makes Holmleigh stand out above the rest, from the beverage tray with a good selection of teas, coffees & biscuits, to the extras in the bathroom, high quality soap, shower gel, hand lotion, shower caps, cotton wool & ear buds & even bath robes. Then we come to the breakfast, I have never come across a breakfast with more choice! There's everything from Full English, Eggs Benedict, Smoked Fish to a selection of omelettes (all local produce & a good selection for vegetarians!) - then if that's not filled you up then there's the breakfast bar you can help yourself too with a wide selection of cereals, fresh fruit, croissants, local honey & jam - all in all there's everything you need for a perfect breakfast. I highly recommend Holmleigh House, you will not be disappointed & you won't want to leave!

Best B&B I have been to. The room was very clean and everything was there you needed plus the little extras. It feels very homely and friendly. The breakfast deserves 6* as you can have pretty much everything you like, freshly cooked! I came here with my parents from Switzerland and they were very impressed with the standard of this B&B. The location is amazing too, lovely bowling green opposite and a short walk to the sea.

Holmleigh House is very well situated, being not far from the sea front, and very close to the town centre. I had a lovely welcome and found the B&B very clean and of a good standard. The breakfast was excellent, using local produce. I had a twin room, though I was alone, (walking the South West Coast Path). The room was reasonably roomy.

Visited Seaton with a friend for the weekend and we stayed at Holmleigh House. What a fantastic place to stay! Lovely warm atmosphere. Very clean and our bedroom was of a very high standard with all the amenities you would expect and more. Gaynor was a fantastic host. Great breakfast too. I will certainly be recommending Holmleigh House to others.

I stayed at Holmleigh House with my friend for the weekend and we had an amazing time! Gaynor was an extremely welcoming host and made sure we had everything we needed on our arrival.
The room was perfect with all the added extras, (tea, coffee, water, biscuits etc) and the communal lounge is very handy for relaxing in the evening or after one of Gaynor's fantastic breakfasts with a cup of tea.
I had a really great time and will definitely be taking my wife to stay at Holmleigh later this year.
