Reviewed 10 September 2011

Minus points: None to speak of really, just the lack of parking made things a bit difficult, as we were unpacking inn the rain on a double yellow line! My only niggle is that the room was a little small for the cost.
Plus points: The beds were very comfortable. The shower was great. The food at breakfast was terrific and plenty of it. We had a very warm welcome and felt it was a home from home. There is a very nice lounge for guests' use so it didn't matter that the bedroom was a little on the small side. They have Wi-Fi which was very much appreciated. When the sun came out, we had a nice view!

We stayed at the Holmleigh for two nights in late July and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Gaynor was there to welcome us as we arrived and showed us to our REALLY spacious room which had everything you would want - TV, tea/coffee, hairdryer and full en-suite bathroom.
Breakfast was exceptionally good, to the point that Gaynor had an award - can't recall where it was from as I was too busy concentrating on the full English...
The front and back of the house are completely surrounded by flowers - all grown in pots - which give the whole place a "country cottage" feel, even though it is close to the centre of Seaton and one minutes walk from the sea.
Try the walk over the SW Coastal path to Beer (35 minutes) - Gaynor will provide directions - or use the X53 bus to see the Jurassic coast up to Lyme Regis or West Bay. Or just relax on the pebble beach at Seaton!
Thanks for a very enjoyable stay, Gaynor.

Stayed at Holmleigh House with a friend for three nights whilst attending a local event. We had single occupation of a double and twin en-suite rooms, both of a very high standard. Nice decor, very clean and well equipped, beds very comfortable. Very warm welcome from the proprietor. The lounge for use by residents is very comfortable, with lots of books and the daily newspapers a nice touch. Very importantly - Gaynor's breakfasts are superb !

Although Holmleigh House does not have dedicated parking, we did not find it dfficult to park a Land Rover Discovery in the on-street parking immediatley adjacent on any night.

Seaton is not a big place, but Holmleigh is well situated in the centre of the town and witihin very easy walking distance of the sea front, local pubs and shops. Good food to be had at the Kings Arms and Eyre Court Hotel (very close by). Frydays Fish & Chips is also well worth a visit. The central location did not give us any problems with late night noise or similar.

I reccomend Holmleigh House and hope to stay again soon.

We stayed one night at the Holmleigh b&b in Seaton. Very peaceful location opposite the Jubilee Gardens and bowling green. Very friendly & warm reception, great breakfast. We would definitely stay there again for a longer period.
