Had a great stay; the accommodation and proprietors were both excellent. We were welcomed with tea and cakes, had very peaceful night and delicious breakfast. Will definately return. This is a great location with good connections by road including public transport.

Coffee and home made cake on arrival. Fresh eggs collected daily. Home made marmalade. Lovely room. Historic canal town. Several excellent pubs/restaurants. And a great host. What's not to like? Brilliant!

Working at Donington and was booked in here, a little oasis in Shardlow, not far from the circuit. Angie is a fabulous host, she knew I was exhausted and she settled me in after a late arrival, showed me the lovely garden where I could sit and work and even poured me a large glass of wine!

We stayed in the family room for one night in order to visit Chalk Abbey. The B&B was easy to find with ample parking and lovely views. The owner Angie was very welcoming and offered us scones and tea on arrival. Very nice touch. The room on the other hand was very dated and worn. The furniture and bedding were... More

Thank you for the valuable feedback. We are pleased to announce that the bathroom has been refurbished. Please note that the price was actually £105 and was priced for three people and included tea and cakes on arrival. The room overlooking the river is available for two people for less than £90. We do hope that we can welcome you... More

Even though we stuffed up our dates through booking.com Angela was more than happy to accomodate us. Nice room,clean and with a great view over the River Trent. Good English breakfast. If you want something different to a modern hotel then this the place. Comfortable, quiet and a host who is customer focused.

We have stayed at Holden House on at least six occasions and it is home from home.The owner,Angie,makes us feel like old friends rather than visitors and the atmosphere is one of total relaxation. The house is so well furnished and comfortable with superb views over the meadows and River Trent. Breakfasts are excellent and the full English is something... More
