Stayed over Saturday February 11, 2012. David & Gill made us feel most welcome on our recent stay. A warm and friendly atmosphere and wholesome breakfast. Our room and facilities were absolutely spotless - what a pleasure.
The Hornby Villa is ideally located for Winter Garden shows, well within a 5-minute walk and convenient for local restaurants. Highly recommended - we have booked to stay again in March for our next Show [Rebecca Ferguson] !

Just returned from our annual visit to the Magic Convention in the Winter Gardens, Blackpool, and as always, stayed at the Hornby Villa, which is so convenient for the Winter Gardens. Gill and David's hospitality is wonderful, our 'Chinese' themed bedroom exceptionally clean and comfortable and the breakfasts and evening meals excellent. (We can certainly vouch for Gilll's lovely fruit and museli layered cereal). Already booked for next year. Why try the rest when you've found the best!!!

Many thanks richard a for reviewing your stay in our "clean & warm" family room. Having defined roles guests usually see more of David as he checks guests in & serves the breakfast on a morning. Me...i'm usually chained to the hoover / kitchen sink or the cooker....lol
Glad you liked my breakfast though & it was nice to meet you all on the couple of occasions i i did meet during your overnight visit. Thanks for the note about the ensuite bathroom, although there is a heater on the wall we will put up a notice to make it clearer for future guests to use. Look fward to seeing you all again Regards Gill & David

Friendliest place to stay in Blackpool, the bedrooms are all themed around the world and immaculately clean and fully stocked with tea/coffee biscuits. Breakfasts are an absolutely joy with Jill's muesli layered breakfast treat a must. The Hornby Villa is an ideal place for families and couples and central to all amenities. We have stayed on numerous occasions and wouldn't recommend anywhere else in Blackpool. Nothing is to much trouble for these lovely people who constantly go out of their way to help where possible.

We are pleased you keep coming back time after time, alot of our business now comes from many repeat guests all year round. You are working your way around the world staying in a different room each time...lol . Glad you like our little theme to the rooms it makes them a bit different to the usual run of the mill bland rooms you get in many B&Bs. We also pride ourselves on our high standards of cleanliness & hospitality which is very much reflected in your review.

If a warm welcome, good wholesome food, spotless cleanliness, convivial company, a feeling of security and a place to relax are your criteria for home, then the Horby Villa is a home from home. The fastidious owners offer all the above and work diligently to make your stay as comfortable and complete as it is possible. I would have no reservations about reserving a room there whenever I visit the holiday resort - PeterG
