We stayed at Holbrook House Hotel for three nights at the end of last month and we will have no hesitation in recommending it to our friends.
The hotel, I suspect was a country residence and the present owners have kept a lot of the original features. The Hotel is full of character and the fact that there may be a carpet which could do with replacing or a little piece of wall paper lifting at the corner, just adds to the considerable charm of the place.
All the public areas and our room, which was called Poppy, were well presented, clean and tidy.
The food was really good, although the menu didn't change while we were there and had we stayed for a fourth night, we may have struggled to find something different to eat.
Although we didn't use the facilities at the spa, we did go to have a look and the Gym was quite impressive. There is also a small bar where you can have coffee and cake to supplement all the calories that you have just worked off.
The Hotel is situated in a good position to visit four or five National Trust properties, the Haynes Motor Museum and the Fleet Air Arm Museum. There is a small village nearby called Castle Carey which is very nice also Sidmouth and Lyme Regis are only about an hours drive.
What makes the Hotel especially nice is the staff. They are always friendly, polite, helpful and professional.
If you prefer a Hotel where every room has the same sanitised appearance no matter where in the world you are, then this is not the place for you. However, if you prefer a more relaxed hotel with plenty of character then look no further than Holbrook House.
