I have to echo the review by K_RocheLondon, we were actually there over Easter 2012 also and experienced rain like I had never seen (will never complain about Irish rain again!) However, we still got out and about to visit the Golden Circle etc and we did get some lovely sunny weather for the Blue Lagoon visit on our way home. But about the Hotel Holt - we got a good deal on an external website which included breakfast, our room really was quite small but it suited us perfectly. It was clean and the bed was comfortable - a proper double not 2 twins stuck together. It had two single quilts which kept falling off in the night though! The breakfast was quite adequate, the usual cold overcooked scrambled eggs, but good meats, cheeses, breads some fruit, cereal and juice. Breakfast staff were so helpful and friendly and polite. It is quite a small place so there was only ever one person serving at breakfast so it felt very personal. Front desk staff were also very helpful and rang around to check opening hours of places over Easter (a lot of places shut) and bus times (none on Good Friday except for pre-booked tours). The hotel is located very close to the centre, about 10 or 15 minutes from some good restaurants in the Old Harbour area so if you don't mind a little walk and enjoy a quieter environment at night this will suit you perfectly. It also has free parking if required and is handy to the main route out to the Golden Circle area. It was once obviously a very luxurious hotel and it's glamour is a little faded now, but this adds somewhat to it's charm - it definitely has character.
