We loved Holywell house, it's decorated beautifully with a real eclectic mix of bits and bobs. Lovely details in the rooms like fresh water, biscuits and china tea cups for our morning cuppa. Everything was very clean and the two gents that own it were very friendly. Breakfast was very good, lots of choice and the sausages were the best... More

We booked into this Guest House after seeing the reviews and it was just as everyone had said. So interesting with all the antiques and endless pictures etc. Our room was lovely - felt so homely and breakfast amazing. Highly recommend.

If you're looking for that little bit extra and make your visit to Loughbourgh something to remember then book into Holywell House. The accommodation is truly memorable and thanks go to Derek and Les for creating such a friendly and comfortable place to stay. Each bedroom is furnished differently and to a very high standard.

We came across this great Guest House by accident but we were really lucky as it is lovely. Beautifully restored old vicarage with antique and vintage furniture and fittings. Nice comfy room with a wet room to die for. Smashing freshly cooked breakfast. The hosts, Derek & Let, were so nice and nothing was too much trouble. Certainly would come... More

As you park your car in the designated car park and notice the shrubbery that appears to have been meticulously shaped with nail scissors you realise you're somewhere special. Our friendly host Derek handled our check-in easily and quickly despite the fact that he was not expecting my wife on this trip! My office had booked a double room but... More

A late booking due to a flood at my booked hotel proved to be a good find. Well positioned, car parking, clean, well appointed. Lovely helpful staff and a lovely breakfast. Hotel close to university and town centre.

I'm in Loughborough for 3 nights most weeks at the moment, and Lez and Derek's extremely comfortable and well-run place is definitely my favourite. Some decor is a bit OTT for my taste, but it's all impeccably kept, breakfast is great, welcome friendly and efficient, location perfect, and excellent value. A heartwarming change from the soulless robotic efficiency of Travelodge... More

Took our American friends for overnight stay when revisiting our former home town.
