Well, it looks grand from the outside. But don't be fooled. Firstly. I'm disabled, and it's the most disabled unfriendly hotel I've ever stayed in. 86 rooms, and not one walk in shower. Disgraceful. The staff were complete robots. Not a flicker of a smile. It's in the middle of nowhere. We looked at the menu for our dinner. And... More

My husband and I, with 2 friends, booked dinner with Killing Game at The Holt. We spent the night afterwards at the hotel followed by breakfast. The hotel itself is very nice - clean, spacious, easy to find, with friendly helpful staff. The dinner organised through Killing Game was great. The murder mystery part of it was excellent - really... More

The hotel was nice and clean, and their food was really really good (surprising for a three star hotel), including a really good buffet breakfast. We went to 'The Killing Game' murder mystery night they were hosting which was so good - the actors were really good, and really interacted with the crown and stayed in character all the way... More

When I arrived I was greeted by a friendly receptionist by the name of Aaron, he was very helpful and cheerful and helped in any way that he could through out the stay. The rooms are very homely and comfortable... More

Booked here and they added a service charge onto the room. Never had this before in many years of travel. This has obviously done to get them into the right price checker categories but completely wasted my time as had to go all the way through the booking process to find out. Very very sneaky

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel while on our way to The Royal Albert Hall for a military concert and could not fault it the first time, how things change in 12 months, we had a late lunch due to arriving after 1pm, the selection for dinner was ok but when it came to sweet...

I booked this hotel because they allow dogs. we had to postpone our original date as one of our dogs became very ill, we couldn't have a refund but the hotel offered us another date to stay. I must admit I did not read the reviews for the hotel until the day before we were due to stay and I... More

We picked The Holt for an AGM and an evening dinner. We were ably supported by Zdenka in the organisation of the weekend. The business part of the day went well; facilities were adequate and lunch was plentiful and Sonia kept an eye on us.We arranged a 4 course dinner in a private room with our own bar at £30... More

I stayed here on Tuesday evening (14/01/14) with two of my work colleagues as we had been informed that it was a nice hotel, the website looked impressive and at £56.00 B&B, that was until we arrived, first impressions were not to bad when we checked in, there was a nice chill out area with comfy furniture and a fire...
