I had the opportunity to stay at Holne for what is probably an unusual event for the property. A VERY BIG PARTY of dance music! From the moment of arrival we were treated exceptionally in every respect. With outstanding grounds, beautiful rooms and great staff I speak for myself and probably the other 299 other guests in saying BRILLIANT!!
Holne provides a sense of privacy, intimacy, friendliness and versatily to such an extent that it very much felt like I was at a friends house for an evening (not that I have too many friends that have a house like this).
It is relevant to say the dorm rooms are fantastic. Well spaced, comfy beds and very much adding to the adventure of the stay. Reminding me of childhood stays at Kilvrough Manor (just outside Mumbles, Wales), as a child. It was pretty exciting!!
When it came to breakfast (given the transformation back to 'Hotel' that took place overnight and in a very short amount of time), we were treated to an extremely generous and satisfying meal. The service still remained outstanding, even taking into account the sorry state that many of us must have looked and felt like when standing in line to serve ourselves.
I won't even tell you how much we paid to stay there for evening, but believe me, value for money is an understatement!! Holne is in some fantastic Devon countyside and provides an experience rather than just 'somewhere' to stay. If you are in the area and need somewhere exceptional to stay, or thinking of holding an event, I'd say consider Holne.
I don't think you'll be disappointed.
