Will most definitely return

Well after reading the comments on here I didn't know whether it was a good idea to book the holly bush, gave it a go anyway and I must say I don't know how anyone can be so negative.

The place was lovely. Set in a peaceful location and we'll set atmosphere. I went along with my partner and we are only a young couple and usually I'm quite fussy with rooms. We loved it. The room was good for the price, yes they could improve on the rooms slightly by adding extras in the bathroom to make it more homily & some more dusting required but nothing severe. I think with these little changes the place would be outstanding.

Not quite what I expected

The room was clean, but tired.

Some elements were of a fairly high standard but the tiredness of the furnishings and decoration took a lot of that away. Bed uncomfortable - past it's best. Laterooms didn't give enough info on the accommodation as when you delve around the Hollybush website you get more of an idea of what you will get. We stay away in a variety of hotels and pubs with rooms throughout the year and this wasn't really what we would have chosen.
