“Century Bar and Grill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We booked dinner reservations after walk through of the hotel during the recent art show weekend in Alpine. After a short wait in the bar, watching the ' Mixologists' perform at an an exceptionally high level, we enjoyed a very comfortable and exquisite culinary experience in the dining room. The waitress was a local student who definitely knew her job and led us to probably the best tenderloin steak we've ever enjoyed. AThe cheese cake desert was marvelous. A return to the hotel is a definite for us.

We did not stay here but came in from Fort Davis for drinks and dinner. The bar was hopping with locals and visitors. The service was excellent and the wine list was good. Dinner was fantastic with perfectly grilled salmon on whipped parsnips. The dish had a slight Indian flavor that was perfect. Our waitress was pleasant and efficient. We really enjoyed the West Texas hospitality.

The Holland has been renovated and now there is a great restaurant and full bar! Our room was a junior suite with a jacuzzi tub.. We did not have time to break that in .. But what a bonus.
They are dog friendly and are so reasonable with the pet deposit.. Only $30.00 with $10.00 of that going to the local Humane Society! What a great idea for all pet friendly hotels. Pass that idea on....
The staff is amazing also... And one of the owners was gracious enough to come to our table at dinner to thank us for being there. Very appreciated. We loved the whole experience. One tiny weenie flaw would be a few stains on the hallway carpet ... But really, who cares when you are in Alpine at The Holland!! Just chill and listen to the trains go by and look up at those stars.....

We are thrilled to hear what a great time you had this weekend. Thank you so much for your kind words and lovely comments. We love our guests and that includes our pet guests too! We understand how important it is to have your pets traveling with you and we want our pet guests to be just as comfortable as their owners. We also have pet beds and treats available! We are also thrilled to hear you were able to join us for dinner at The Century Bar & Grill. It is such a welcoming addition that just adds to the overall guest experience.
Yes our carpets have gone the miles involving all the reconstruction of the rooms and hallways. We will be getting new carpeting installed in January, we are very excited about that. Please let us know when you will be in Alpine next and make sure you bring your pet! We are looking forward to seeing you all!

The Holland Hotel is a nice hotel and better than the hotel chains in Alpine. They just opened up a bar and restaurant
In the hotel lobby.
The rooms are nice with an older historic flavor and very comfortable.
The Hotel was great but need a better staff choice with personality at check in but other than that I'll be back.

We stopped into this fine Hotel for breakfast only, not knowing that the breakfast is reserved for hotel guests! Well, we wondered about the "help yourself" attitude of the waitress at first. Then, she asked if we wanted eggs, bacon and hash browns with our coffee and juice and toast and we said we did. Later, we realized when another couple left that they did not pay. So, we then realized that the breakfast was included only for hotel guests! We told the waitress we appreciated it and the food was very tasty and we'd pay for it. She said not to be concerned about it, but my husband gave her and the cook a big tip since we were not charged for the meal. Nice West Texas hospitality!

As with many small town America hotel and restaurants, this one had a new owner... again. But, the comfort level and abiance wasn't any different from our first visit eighteen months ago. Some changes... the bar moved to the former breakfast area. The former bar is now a game room with pool table, tv and soft refreshments. The courtyard upgraded with brick pavers and an art installation of "Saint Cowboy" by local artist Martha Scott. Complimentary breakfast was served in what is soon to be the new on-site restaurant. Rather than "continental style", the chef was serving up made-to-order eggs, hashbrowns and bacon while you made your own toast (from thick slices of fresh whole grain bread) and helped yourself to juice and coffee. No hot tea offerings but I had my own tea bag and was accomodated with hot water. Also, fresh fruit salad, yogurt and a very yummy granola to round out the options. We were in Room 202-203 which is a mini-suite, I believe. Two rooms (bedroom, living area), two baths, two tvs and plenty of room for two to get comfortable. Our room faced Holland Avenue and the railroad that crosses thru town. The hotel supplies each room with ear plugs, but we really didn't need them -- the trains pass thru quickly a couple times at night, adding to the ambiance, in my opinion. The hotel is within walking distance to galleries, shops, and a grocery store as well as a day-trip away from the Big Bend National Park, McDonald Observatory, Fort Davis, and Marfa.

Room Tip: Stay in the hotel proper rather than one of the 'flats' or other properties they manage. We...

We have stayed at MANY high end hotels and this one, by far, was the most unique! We loved the decor, in that it kept with the originality of the hotel. When we checked in, they were pretty full so we ended up renting the Penthouse Suite. It was amazing, king size bed to die for and it's own private deck with a hot tub (NOT a whirlpool tub). The hotel has beautiful historic pictures and actual keys for the doors (not key cards lol). We will stay at the Holland every time we travel anywhere near Alpine!

Room Tip: Splurge for the Penthouse ... you won't regret it!
