the hotel was really clean and very well stocked just one niggle notes all over the place felt like we were at school too quiet for us also too far out of town specially with shopping bags going backward and forward couldnt fault the breakfast the hosts were ok dont think we will be going back again didnt think the standard of bed n breakfast to win trip advisor award was as good as some of the bed n breakfasts places we looked at before

Thanks for reviewing your stay, we are pleased you found our B&B clean , We don't hide the fact that we are located in a quieter area of Blackpool at the top of Hornby Rd & for the sake of a 5-10 min walk with any shopping are away from the noisy nightlife which most of our guests prefer & many book because of that reason....We promote a peaceful homely environment in which to enjoy your stay & we are sorry if you took offence to our request on your return to the B&B one evening to curtail the noisy drunken shouting & swearing caused by the other couple in your booking which woke 2 Rooms. We don't accept this kind of behaviour within our B&B so yes your proberly right our B&B is proberly too quiet for you. We have notices in the room for guest information which is required by law relating to our fire procedure & also our policies. There is also a notice in the ensuite which details our towel change policy & shower operation... Sorry if these made you feel back at school we are looking into condensing it down to 1 information notice & most guests find it useful so they don't have to ask how the shower works or what to do if they need clean towels. We received the tripadvisor award for excellence for the 3rd running based on the reviews of our B&B from guests using this site. Many of which have stayed in a lot of B&B's in Blackpool over the years & then find after staying with us that our cleanliness , hospitality & presentation of our rooms is of a higher standard than they are used to in a Blackpool B&B resulting in us also being awarded a 4*B&B grading by visit Britain of which we are very proud Regards Gill & David

Enjoyed a one night stay with our daughter and her friend for them to enjoy the Pleasure Beach & Sandcastle. The hotel is lovely & clean with parking which is great. The rooms are great and the beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was absolutely spot on, first class. The hosts David & Gill are very warm & welcoming and I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

First class service, top quality breakfasts, spotless rooms. Nothing was a problem. All rooms are cleaned daily, and I mean cleaned well. This is a quiet hotel, not for late night party people. Parking available, David sorts this out, Perfect for a short break. We stayed for 3 nights.

Many thanks for reviewing your 3night stay in our Superking ensuite room, We are pleased you liked our great little B&B , the room, the breakfasts & the parking organised by David, being at the top of Hornby Road is a quieter area away from the hustle & bustle of the noisy nightlife.

You'r quite right we're not for party people.. we do'nt accommodate Stag/Hens, Group bookings of Single or Mixed sex OR Late Night Nightclubbers....we specialise in relaxing breaks in a homely environment for Couples / The solo traveller / Families / Delegates attending events & conferences.....If people are after a wild night out nightclubbing into the early hours this is NOT the B&B for them & there are many other Hotels/B&B's more suited to their needs... Glad you both had a great stay & look forward to seeing you again in the future...Regards Gill & David.

Thanks Clare G for reviewing your 2nt stay in our Superior Double Ensuite, We are pleased you enjoyed your stay . It must be a mine field for people searching for a B&B in Blackpool with soooo many to choose from. As a regular Blackpool visitor we are glad you found us & found us to be "best by far" . Glad you liked our Breakfast choices & the fact you can either pre order the evening before to cut down on waiting time at breakfast , Or choose in the morning & choose what you want too on your own tailor made breakfast depending on what you like. ... Being awarded 4* by visit Britain for our high standards all round & such positive reviews makes our job worthwhile & rewarding .... Look forward to seeing you both again nxt year for the darts....

We had a lovely time here at the Hornby Villa .... David and Gill went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to look after us. Our daughter received the star treatment and the family room had a South Africa theme which was great fun. We spent 6 nights here and we are very happy to recommend this lovely warm family friendly hotel!

Great place for our short break, Just near enough to walk into town (5 - 10 mins) but also away from all the hustle & bustle.
Owners Gill and David are a lovely couple so friendly and nothing too much trouble. The rooms lovely and clean ,bathroom spotless,Plenty of tea coffee and yummy biscuits in room Breakfast is a very wide range to choose from cooked and a lovely special yogurty museli thing and the French toast was lovely Gill. Liked the fact of having off road parking.

Room Tip: Room 9 overlooks main road but traffic noise not a problem, There is some noise from seagulls but he...
