Have been to this hotel several times before but it has seriously declined since last here a year ago. The superior room bath was dirty and no proper shower so asked to move which was done without too much of a problem but there were no other superior rooms available so had a standard room and a very small refund....

We booked the hotel for a weekend break and it was ideal for our needs. Inspire of some of the reviews we found the staff to be lovely and helpful.

Two couples stayed at The Holt on Saturday 29th for my sisters birthday & we had a fantastic time. Staff were friendly from arrival to departure & were more then helpful. Even at a busy breakfast one waiter even went & found me details of the hotel & its history. The hotel it'self is very charming. I loved the feeling... More

The hotel was comfortable and clean enough, the welcome was delayed, due to a receptionist who was a bit formulaic and OCD. I had to sit and wait while he dealt with a very local query, the room was pleasant enough and clean and comfortable, what let things down was the cooked breakfast. The coffee was insipid (was it actually... More

My very first impression was bad and it only went downhill from there. No one was at reception when I arrived. After waiting 8 minutes for someone to turn up I eventually went to the bar for assistance where I was greeted by two members of staff having a heated exchange. Eventually I received some assistance from one of the... More

The hotel is a little dated, especially the dining/breakfast room which was very gloomy. The staff were all attentive but there were not enough of them so they looked very stressed, especially at breakfast as it was so busy. The food was of a good standard but we had to wait both days for the trays to be replenished. The... More
