Certificate of Excellence
The Holly is one of the hotels of Pinehurst Resort, located in the center of the charming Village of Pinehurst. Built in 1895, The Holly was Pinehurst's first hotel. Every detail has been attended to inside and on the spacious grounds. Decorating the walls and floors are a series of natural botanical prints and images reminiscent of times gone by. You'll see the fine touches in every nook from the jewel-toned Tiffany lamps to the reading selection in the library to the comfort of a rocking chair in your guest room. It's no wonder the Holly is a Four-Diamond hotel. The 1895 Grille is the Four-Diamond restaurant inside the Holly. There's also the charming Tavern which offers indoor seating and outdoor dining seasonally. Free resort shuttles will transport you across the resort so there is easy access to golf, spa and all amenities.

Only experience at the Pinehurst resort was the woefully outdated Carolina Inn, so this was a lovely surprise!! A real bath, the coziest bed I’ve slept in at a hotel, and spacious room all made this a great experience. It’s too close to the overrated “Dugans”, but I’ll let it

Holly Inn is traditional, charming, comfortable, and friendly. It feels every bit the historical gem that it is. You’ll find more modern amenities and structure elsewhere, but here you can feel a part of Pinehurst’s history in comfort, a small inn feel, and understated style.

Like most who visit the resort, we were there for the golf. However, this hotel did not disappoint. It is an older, renovated property. Rooms were clean and the service was good. The pub and 1895 restaurants had great food and service. The front desk was helpful in storing
