“weekend break”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Was in blackpool for northernsoul weekender at the tower which was just a couple of minutes walk away , event was on til' 3 in morning but no problem for David and Jill as long as we were quiet coming in. Room was clean and adequate for the amount of time we were in there thou shower could have had more power. The hosts were very friendly and chatty asking us about what was happening at the dancing. Also for £3 per/day i got off road parking which was good value and reassuring. Would defo go back.

Thank you for reviewing your stay with us over the Northern Soul weekend, & for being quite on your return at 3am after the event finished , We are pleased you enjoyed your stay & we will look at the shower in the room to check the flow of water, Glad you found the parking handy, as there aren't many B&Bs that can guarantee parking for all guests & the £3 charge goes towards renting spaces to ensure we can guarantee parking for all guests.... We look forward to seeing you again. Regards Gill & David

Booked a family room for two nights. Great hosts, fantastic breakfast. Great location a stones throw from the tower, and very quiet. Will definitely stay again. Many thanks to David and Gill. The Ambrose family.

We stayed at the Hornby Villa in Blackpool for my 65th birthday,i would highly recommend this hotel.David and Gilly cant do enough for you.The room was fantastic,we stayed in number 5 with the 4 poster bed,it was perfect in every way and the breakfast is great.You can write what you want on a menu the day before and Gilly will make it for you (fantastic).T he hotel is situated well with all amenities just a walk away ( The Stanley Working mens Club just a 2 minute walk away).We came back on the day of my birthday to find our room decorated with balloons and streamers,needless to say we will be booking again when go next time.This place should be rated 5* as it is faultless book early because its always full .I would just like to say a very big thank you to David and Gilly and we will see you soon.xx

Room Tip: Room 5 has the 4 poster,and my friends stayed in room4 which is big and has a double and single bed...

Many thanks for reviewing your weeks stay with us in our Four Poster Room , we are glad you had a fantastic birthday & enjoyed your break with us , Glad you enjoyed the different variations for breakfast & the menu which you can fill in the night before if you know what you'd like or you can wait & order breakfast in the morning , it's your choice. We're not sure about 5* lol. But we are proud of the 4* rating we received from Visit Britain in recognition of our high standards of Cleanliness / Hospitality & the presentation of our rooms...... As a regular visitor to Blackpool we look forward to seeing you & your friends again in the future.... Regards Gill & David

Stayed again, and can't fault David and Gill's service. Room was clean, big and comfortable and value for money. Won't use any other B and B when in blackpool now. The Hornby Villa is close to all attractions and after spending hours walking piers and pleasure beach that is welcome. Thanks

From the booking to arrival, we had such excellent service from David and Gill, nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and tidy and we even had ear plugs to use incase the seagalls made a noise, which comes in handy if your partner snores!! The breakfast was excellent and we couldnt fault it. We will be defo going back to the Hornby Villa. Will tell our friends and family to stay there when visiting blackpool. Thank you so much David and Gill. From the stokies!
