I emailed a booking enquiry and was told there were rooms available on my chosen date. My partner is allergic to feathers and when I replied to check whether the bedding contained feathers they never responded, even when I emailed again to chase. I regret that I have wasted time waiting for a response.

Stayed here for 6 months working away from home. I received a warm welcome form day one. The service was one of a relaxed but professionally run Bed and Breakfast. Ian and Diane always had a smile and made my stay very enjoyable. I would certainly recommend them, whether for a stop-over or longer stay.

Very friendly and professional hosts Diane and Ian make it look effortless, as all good professionals do. A lot of thought and effort has gone into this B&B and it's easy (as customers) not to notice the details, but we didn't miss it and appreciated the work that has been put in to make each customer feel happy with their...

Ian and Dianne were the perfect hosts always friendly and happy. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was fantastic . During our stay we met some lovely people from Malta and Sweden who stay at Holbrook regularly and we will do the same.

After reading all these excellent reviews, I was completely unprepared for what was actually awaiting. My friend and I + 3 girls (aged between 11 and 5) booked a family room for one night. Yes, Dianne was very welcoming and hospitable. The room looked ok, until we got into the bed. The mattress was from 1980's with big hole in...

Ian and Diane attended to our every need from our booking enquiries, to our painless bill settelement. They are effortless, relaxed, friendly and proffessional hosts, always there to help but never intrusive; they cut the balance just right, helping us to relax and prepare for a wedding with two toddlers in tow. Accomodation was roomy, clean and tastefully decorated. The...

Friendly welcome, very flexible and accommodating of customer's requirements, there for any help but not in the way if you need a rest after the journey! Enough on the hospitality tray for 3 or 4 good cups of tea & biscuits!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this Bed and Breakfast. I have stayed here a number of times. Diane, Ian and their family have all gone way above the call of duty to make my stay and that of other guests enjoyable. The rooms are cleaner and nicer than many of the more expensive hotels that I have stayed in. Truely a home...
