After some years in a hotel desert The Holt is coming back strongly. The new management is really on the ball and a total refurbishment is under way. Always a popular local venue which became dated and a little tired, it is destined to once again be a great destination. The Carvery has wisely been reinstated and there are plans...

I was here to attend a weekend using several of the conference rooms. From the very start the staff were incredibly helpful! Especially when they realised any mistakes made! The rooms were above what expected for the price and the food was exactly what was needed. I would definitely return!

Went for the extra large room and was pleased with it. Requested a bath in the room and this was provided. No noise whatsoever. Dinner was excellent. Bar available but beer and lager choice limited. Morning papers can be ordered night before. As stated previous the hotel is very clean but a little dated. Must say all the staff were...

We called in here for refreshments during a long journey. I always judge the standard of a place by whether or not there is food stained seating and carpeting; sticky tables (yuck!) and toilets your only too pleased to get out of. I think, if they can't keep the basics clean then what are the kitchens like! The Holt Hotel...

Dear Jane Thank you for your review. We are glad you found our staff friendly and the hotel spotlessly clean. We recognise that some parts of the hotel are a little dated - whilst we want to keep the charm and character of the building, we are undertaking refurbishment work in the next couple of months of our bar and...

Staff couldn't have been more helpful, especially Emma, food was excellent and accommodation five star. Would recommend this hotel for any special occasions for the personal touch

The walls are super thin! Stayed in Room 69 in late February. At 3am we could hear the entire conversation of the people in the room above and the floorboards loudly creaking. Then from 8am there was drilling and hammering into our walls. Such impact that things fell on the bathroom sink. The website said renovations occurred in Jan. It's...

I stay away a lot on business and encounter many differing levels of food, room, service, etc. I admit I personally have few expectations other than polite and helpful staff, especially when you first arrive somewhere new to you. This hotel is marked down a lot by many and I can't see why. Front desk was open and humorous and...

The hotel looks nice from the outside and is nice hotel on the inside as well. It is an old hotel, therefore, it does not have lift or gym or beauty salon but that is fine as it is more countryside, authentic hotel. The room I stayed in was superior room and it was nice, clean with tea and coffee...

Reviewed 13 February 2017

The staff was outstanding. The food was good. The rooms were clean and cozy. This is all we needed for my students and I to live the typical English experience. I would recommend this to everyone who wants an authentic experience. However, if you are looking for a brand new hypster type of place, this isn't it.
