Value for money

The only down side of our stay is that the owner Phillip seemed miserable without a sense of humour and seemed very dry, his wife penny and the rest of the staff were warm friendly and went out of their way to help. The food and everything else were quiet acceptable and very close to the north prom. Read more

lovely break with great accommodation and lots to do near by.

Great fun break with my 17 year old daughter. Visited the zoo, pleasure beach, sealife centre, wax works and the tower. Lots of things to see and do in Blackpool. Early nights for us in the lovely quiet hotel and enjoyed a great breakfast at 9/9.30 every morning. A short walk to town but usually got a tram at the end of the road. Great holiday and look forward to coming to stay again soon. Read more

Sorry you were disappointed with the sausages. They are actually home made from the local butchers. They are not catering sausages. The refreshments caddy is normally restocked every day. If for some reason it was short of teabags you could have asked for some more. If we have made an error please give us the chance to correct it.

Holmsdale - Blackpool Gem

My friend and I have been visiting Blackpool for the last seven years and this is our sixth at Holmsdale. We have a superior twin room which is comfy and meets our needs pretty much spot on. The owners and staff have always been good to us and understand that a holiday means you want freedom to come and go as you like, and as we both get our own keys, that's what we do - sometimes till the small hours. We've never had a bad nights sleep, & careful when back late, we've not disturbed anyone else! Read more

Response

Thanks for the review. See you next year.

Our room is at the front of the hotel and on the first floor. It has a shower and bath, and there is enough storage for our clothes and footwear that we do not compete for space. Ace breakfast!

We were partying till late each night but the owners know people are on holiday and want to enjoy themselves so there is never any problem. They are always helpful too. Read more

We went for a short stay, to see the 'Loomies' and re-live childhood holidays. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Good situation on way to quieter North Shore. Walking along the promenade viewing the 'Loomies' proved faster than the slow moving convoy of cars. Weather was pleasant, though turned slightly chilly on last day - not bad for mid-October.

Close enough to Blackpools features, quiet enough to sleep properly, friendly and comfy.

A couple of straight blokes visiting for 4 days in August. We had a twin ensuite room, which was quiet (unlike us) and breakies each morning was very nice & plenty of it. The Room had TV, Freeview, tea&coffee making kit and a window which could be opened to vent at night when humid. It all served its purpose and was just right for the type of stay we had. Blackpool might not seem glamorous but we had a whale of a time and will be going back again next year - as will a lot of people I suspect. Read more

Hotel had all that we required

We went down for a boozy weekend (4 males aged 21-22). When we got to the hotel, Phil was more than happy to let us park the car in the garage for a small fee which we found adequate. It was good having the freedom of letting yourself in and out of the hotel as you wished. Breakfast service was excellent and the staff were really friendly. Rooms had all that we needed in them (freeview, table, chairs etc.) Read more

The bill contained some extra charges when we got it but when we pointed them out, the bill was changed so it was no real hassle.
The bar seemed pretty poor (never used it but had a look in)

Friendly, reasonably priced and well located hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights for the Northern Soul weekend and we found the hotel staff very helpful and friendly. The owner actually saved a parking space at the front of the hotel for us as we were arriving late. The location was ideal for the Tower. The furniture and deco was date however clean. The breakfast was also very good. Read more

We were very satisfied with our accommodation

My friend and I needed a break, away from recent stresses and strains back home!!
I went on my own to Blackpool for a break last year and suggested we go together this year.
We visited Cleveleys by tram, spent some time at the Pleasure Beach, did some shopping in the town and obviously saw the amazing illuminations - we used our hotel as a base and a very good base it was, clean and tidy with good facilities and comfortable beds and bedding - I would be very happy to return there Read more

Quiet, Comfy, Friendly.

A friend and I stayed for 4 nights whilst attending an annual local event. We wanted somewhere to use as a base but not be in the centre of the activities (to avoid noise of party-goers. This place is about 10mins walk to the Tower and Winter Gardens and suited us fine. The Holmsdales frontage is well presented so (after drinking) we never had a problem distinguishing it from the dozens of other B&Bs in the area and the steps recently treated with resin gravel so no slippery slabs when its rainy Read more

Staff are very friendly, chatty (English) The rooms are all en-suited, different layouts (I think), clean with Tea/Coffe making facilities and a breakfast which will definately set you up for the day.
Dislikes?
No. The rooms we have had have been a bit small, but as we don't spend much time in them (apart from sleeping) it isn't a problem. Parking close by can be a challenge though.

Nice comfortable bed, rather small room

The single room I stayed in was rather on the small side and the lack of additional power sockets was limiting. However the bed was comfortable and the lack of noise from outside and inside the hotel meant I was able to get a decent nights sleep. Read more

Response

Where ever possible we will give single people a double room but when we are busy a single room may be all thats available. they are still agood size for a single with double robe, dressing table a nd stall, armchair and ensuite. the guest did rate us 5 out of 5 for value.

Was ideally situated between the railway station and where I wanted to be. Quiet and away from the party hotels. Staff were friendly and accommodating for my needs of an early breakfast.

Response

Apologies but not shure why they were cold, its not something that is normally a problem and not brought to our attention. We also have extra heaters available if requested. The hotel is proud of the standard of accommodation and service offered to all guests. In the unlikely event that you have cause for concern during your stay, please bring the matter to the attention of the proprietor. Every effort can then be made to meet you requirements or resolve problems before you leave.

Good value for money

Good value for money b&b. Owners friendly & welcoming. Breakfast good. Room nice & warm and adequately furnished etc, although the bed was too hard for our liking, so we didn't sleep well (although it may well be OK for others if thats what they like). Bathroom provided everything needed, including a nice hot shower. Coffee & tea making facilities in room, which was re-stocked everyday. Read more
