We have not long returned from a stay at Holmbush House. We found it to be very relaxing which is just what was required. It was lovely to walk round the grounds or just sit and admire the view. We had the twin room which was very spacious and light. The bathroom was superb with a beautiful bath and a... More

We recently got married at Holmbush House, Hellingly. Carole and Rob were fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough for us. The bride and her family stayed Friday night in the luxurious accommodation and a continental breakfast was served to our own specifications. The room we used for the service was lovely and we were able to decorate it ourselves on... More

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,...

Carole A, Owner at Holmbush House, responded to this review

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 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
