Cannot recommend this place enough.
Had 20 rooms for the weekend for our daughters wedding. The staff were outstanding. Emma, Petr and Sean couldn't do enough for us. Made all of our guests so welcome. They were absolutely outstanding with their management of our function. The chefs And their serving team, prepared and served a 3 course meal for 90 guests and not one single complaint except the size of the portions, which were massive!! The food was absolutely 5 star and hot and every table got exactly what they ordered. From the moment we arrived until we left on the Sunday, the whole experience was phenomenal. Cannot recommend this place enough. A beautiful old coaching house with so much character.

I have no hesitation in recommending The Holt
Had my daughter's wedding breakfast (approx 100 seated people) and evening reception (approx 150 people) her. Top class food and hospitality, including the level of service provided. All staff were most helpful and friendly, Emma the wedding event manager could not be more helpful and accommodating with all the arrangements for a very enjoyable and successful event for my daughter and son in law. My wife and I also stayed overnight at the hotel after the wedding reception. We found our room comfortable and having plenty of space to relax. Managed to get a good night's sleep as the bed was very comfortable. All room facilities were well presented. The hotel as a whole has a good atmosphere, with plenty of communal areas to relax, also as well as a restaurant there is a bar available to sit and enjoy good menu of bar meals. I have no hesitation in recommending The Holt for a wedding reception or overnight stays.

The staff was amazing.
Amazing history of the hotel. We stayed for 3 nights, as we were attending a wedding. We loved the traditional furnishings throughout the hotel. Our room very spacious with a balcony looking out to garden. The staff was amazing. Our server a British young lady was very thoughtful & friendly. The food was amazing- breakfast, dinner & especially for the wedding sit down dinner. Also, on our last day we had the Carvery dinner, very outstanding! The children loved using the pool table. The surrounding garden area very beautiful. We would to stay again! Thank you!
