What a great place and fantastic service. A lot of trip adviser reviews, not of this place but generally, can be quick to criticise assuming that the reviewer is always being reasonable and considerate; well we weren't and they were just great. Booked out most of the rooms for friends and family as we had our daughter's wedding reception nearby;... More

Have just returned from 3 days away at Holden House with friends, and as we always do have had a wonderful time, Angie is always friendly and welcoming, the rooms are comfortable and the breakfasts are always of a great standard, it is the personal touch that will always keep us coming back here, thank you so much once again

The service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for the owner Angie. Our room overlooked the river, such a delight to wake up to. The... More

Holden House is a beautiful place to stay. Angie made us very welcome and we enjoyed tea and cake (lemon sponge my favourite) on arrival on the patio. The view is gorgeous. I would never get bored of it! The room was very clean as was the bathroom. The breakfast was delicious. I hope we can stay again if you... More

Yesterday I just realised that I have been staying here at Angie's gloriously located B and B for well over ten years and never submitted a review! Well, Angie, better late than never. In a nutshell, for the price of many of the local "motels" and chains around the area you get to stay in a genuinely family run establishment,... More
