Our hosts were super helpful & friendly, more like family than hosts, looking out for our comfort in every way. Also have the cutest dog imaginable. Breakfast area lovely & comfortable & food is great. A quiet spot off the main roads with a darling little cafe just down the road to walk to.

We stayed at Hollyhouse at the end of April on our very first visit to Scotland, what a fantastic place! If your looking for somewhere central between Edinburgh and Glasgow, with great train links from Bathgate and easy access onto the main roads, but want a rural, idyllic location, this is the place for you! The Falkirk Wheel, Kelpies and... More

My wife and I have spent three peaceful and undisturbed days at Hollyhouse. We wish to thank Michael and Denise for looking after us so well; and Michael’s sound advice regarding the local restaurants and other amenities. We received a most warm and friendly welcome, and our room was neat and tidy, with plenty of storage space, and very comfortable.... More

Stayed here as we were attending a wedding at The Vu. Lovely warm welcome from Michael and Denise. Beautiful home. Not like a B & B felt like we were staying with family. Rooms lovely and breakfast yummy. Nothing too much trouble. Perhaps a hand rail on the steps leading up to the front door for the more senior guests... More

Great breakfast,very comfortable and clean.We were late arriving but that was no problem.Michael kindly forwarded on a shirt left behind.Very close to the Vu,so ideal place to stay for a wedding there.Just make sure you have precise directions to hand as is difficult to find in the dark.

At the risk of sounding boring, I echo all previous reviews. This was my family's first time ever using a b&b and the hosts have certainly set the bar high. The house is immaculate, our rooms perfectly equipped and spotless, beds comfy and our hosts very very accommodating and extremely welcoming. Breakfast was tasty too. We came with a 5... More

Hollyhouse is a lovely B&B and Michael and Denise are splendid hosts. Thanks to Michael for coming to rescue us poor lost people on the road and making our stay so comfortable. We also got to try haggis for breakfast. It's much better than you think. :) The one issue is that it's very difficult to find. We were coming... More
