It is a year since I last stayed at the Holgate Hill Hotel. I was in a party of 12 for a military reunion this is the 2nd time we have used this hotel. If you are looking for modern premises with electronic room keys, vending machines in the corridors and templated rooms then this is not the place for you - you need to spend a bit more and head for one of the big chain hotels.
If you are looking for good old fashioned service then this may be the place for you. The Hotel is situated. a short walk from the City Centre, it sits back from the road and has a small car park. The hotel is housed in a mature property. The bar and dining room are very pleasantly furnished in a traditional style. The room I was in was clean, well appointed and comfortable, the decor was showing signs of age though the bathroom looked as if it had been recently upgraded.
The Staff from the owner down were very helpful and attentive. We had a group dinner in the hotel, the menu we were given was reasonably varied the food itself was of good quality was well presented and we received good service throughout the dinner. Breakfast the following morning was served by the owner herself - pretty standard but good British cooked breakfast but with a good selection of cereals, fruit etc for those who wanted it.
I suppose you could describe the hotel as old fashioned - it certainly is - but that for me is the strength of the place and why my friends and I returned again this year. Opulent luxury is not on offer some of the decor needs attention but old fashioned service, reasonable rates, reasonable rooms and good food is. May not suit all but would not hesitate to stay again and likely will.
