“Home from Home ...”
Reviewed June 3, 2007

We first visited the Manor House Hotel four years ago and have been back at least once a year ever since. It's recently had a complete refurb and you can now expect the very best in luxury, which you wouldn't perhaps expect on a remote island. Our room boasted not only spectacular views of the harbour, castle and priory but a plasma screen TV!

Dining is intimate and service attentive with staff that take pride in their work and always have a smile and have time for you. We have dined at the very best restaurants in London and New York but nothing can beat the local produce served here. The lobster and crab are superb (you need to pre-order lobster) and for desert you can sample home made ice cream sourced from the diary up the road (not available in NY)!

The hotel has a relaxed friendly atmosphere - the rooms, quite possibly boast the best views on the island. However, I would say the island (and islanders) should be treated with the utmost respect.

To avoid disappointment we've booked our favourite room (well, I'm not going to tell you which one, you'd have to find that out for yourself) a year in advance - it's a bit like staying in a house, rather than a hotel, hence the name!

Although not actually staying at the Manor House I can recommend the hotel for good food and friendly staff, We have visited the island many times but self catered for the first time this April. The Manor House changed hands a couple of years ago and relatives had stayed there commenting on how the hotel had been updated and improved. It certainly had and we loved the extra space in the bar and the fantastic new toilets!(you had to have experienced the onld ones to really appreciate this.) So, just writing this review to comment that things have certainly changed since the last review on the site (2004). Recommended.

A quiet relaxing two night break was what we hoped for on Holy Island. We viewed a number of options and settled for the Manor House Hotel. We Decided to treat ourselves and booked the poster bedroom with dinner and breakfast. At £140 for two per night our expectations were high.
We arrived and as soon as we stepped into the building it was obvious it desperately needed updating. The Gentlemen who met us had a stained grey tee shirt and the barman was finishing his pint! Great first impressions!! Our room which was apparently there best it did have a great view but the positives ended there. The bed was rather unstable and cheap the chair next to the dressing table was broken. The bathroom was not clean the shower did not work and it was very dated.
We carried on having a pleasant day on Holy Island, attempting to enjoy our two night break. Upon our return we had dinner we sat in the bar having our drink whilst others were being served around us we could see what was coming, others were already complaining amongst themselves. Dinner I can only describe as poor. I ordered gammon it came with chips and peas the only taste it had was the lard! My wife had lamb chops you would have thought they could have trimmed the fat off them, although that would have only revealed the substandard meat. Living in the countryside myself I know what a fresh tasting lamb chops taste off and it was the opposite of what was served. The vegetables were not fresh, overcooked and very pale. I am sure corn was yellow last time I had it. I would have been disappointed if I had paid £5.00 for both meals not what you expect in a hotel which charges £140 per night.
The following day after we complained we did get a reduced bill of £100 I am still wondering why I paid that.
We did not stop a further night, we moved across the road and booked into the CROWN AND ANCHOR and that thankfully was a very pleasant experience which I would recommend. Pleasant host and staff , great room, a fab meal and it was a little cheaper..
