We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Holmbush House with hosts Carole and Rob. They were very welcoming and made us feel at home there. The room we stayed in, the Empire Room, was very spacious, with a good sized bathroom and comfy beds. The breakfasts cooked and prepared by Carole were delicious, and presented in a light and spacious meal... More

We booked Holmbush House for our wedding in May 2015, it proved an excellent choice. We booked all three rooms, held the ceremony in the house and had a marquee on one of the lawns for the reception, so had exclusive use of the wonderful grounds for the day. Carole & Rob Alderman were very helpful and did everything possible... More

Lovely location, set in nice grounds. However very disappointed with the hotel? The room was very spacious but lacking many items. No hairdryer, no dressing table or plug close to as mirror, so even with a hair dryer would have difficult to dry hair. There was coffee in the room for a cafetiere but no such item in the room,...

Useful comments – thanks. The great majority of our guests are couples who have the time to enjoy the historic and romantic surroundings of Holmbush House, and we will amend our website descriptions to make clear that our Twin Room is the most appropriate for solo business travellers, with its writing table and paper, and walk-in shower. The ‘missing’ items... More

I was a bridesmaid at my friends wedding this weekend and she got married at Holmbush House in a marquee in the grounds. I was lucky enough to stay at the venue the night before, I can not praise this place enough, it is beautiful, bursting with character, the owners are lovely and so is the house keeper who went...

My partners brother had booked the venue for his wedding, and it was superb, I'm sure he will write a review to thst effect. We stayed in the rooms overnight. The restoration of the house is perfect and owners add a comfortable air to it. Room was plush and I sank into the bed and fell asleep within minutes. It... More

My partner and I spent one night at Holmbush in the Elizabethan room and it was lovely. The art deco bathroom and beautiful furnishings make for a real treat and talking point. Both Carol and her husband Bob are fascinating to talk to and are obviously passionate and rightly so about their gorgeous home. Breakfast was good too; the scrambled... More

We recently hired Holmbush House for our corporate work Christmas Party. When we booked the venue the owners were very helpful, relaxed and open to any ideas we had to set the scene for our party. The venue was excellent value to hire! In the lead up to the event they were so accomodating and ensured that their house was... More

Although rated highly by other reviewers, we had a slightly odd time at Holmbush House. First, it is really difficult to find. No sign from the main road. Head for the Golf Club. It is not cheap. When you arrive, you'd like tea. We sat looking at a huge pile of ash in the fireplace of the strangely furnished and... More

Holmbush House is indeed rated very highly on other websites and so I can only apologise to this reviewer that property did not satisfy their particular taste, expectations and needs. More

We stayed here because we were going to a wedding nearby and all the other hotels closer to the wedding were booked up. As it turned out this was lucky for us. Holmbush house is extremely comfortable and has lots of charm. Carol, the owner, treated us very well and we had a truly delicious fried breakfast the morning after... More
