I booked at the Philmar the night before we went away on a bank holiday Sunday! Great location, whilst you're close to everything in Skegness, it's slightly away from it all and quiet. Parking is on street which can be a bit of a fight to get in. I'd reccommend parking and leaving your car, buses are very frequent- all...

Stayed overnight with a colleague. Room clean and well stocked and spot on really for what we needed. Owner (Tim) even went out of his way to make us a full English breakfast earlier than normal. Would recommend this guest house.

Stayed at the Philmar last weekend, a very homely and clean place with very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfasts were lovely, rooms comfortable and warm with complimentary toiletries, tea coffee making facilities, tv. Definitely worth staying here, a nice cosy place. Only niggle I could find was the outside of the guest house could do with a face lift as...

On arriving at the front entrance my first impression were not good, the inclosed porch hadn't been cleaned for a long time, cobwebs all over the ceiling and in corners, when we entered into the hall way the smell of the owners cooking their own meals was disgusting and lingered throughout. We booked a double room at £55 as stated...

A comfortable room with a good breakfast. Quiet location with on the road parking, yet only a stroll from the seafront. Good advice from the owners about going to Marios for dinner! We went to Marios twice!

Came here to concentrate on some research. The room was nice and comfy. The breakfast was a nicely cooked breakfast and the owners were lovely. Very friendly and chatty but very understanding of the need for a bit of head space.

Booked just a few days in advance for one night only. Advised by text that the room was ready early in the day. Greeted by Andrea, very friendly and helpful even given advice on where to eat for dinner. Room was a small double and had to turn sideways to get between the end of the bed and the wall...
