We booked in for two nights on honeymoon and were amazed at the welcome and facilties we found at Holmhill. The rooms were of an exceptionally high standard, the breakfast could not be faulted and the hospitality outstanding. Provision of an iPod docking station in the room was unexpected.
OK, arriving in full wedding dress gave the game away a bit that we had travelled north to get wed and on both nights we sat and talked to Rosie and Stewart and antipodean visitors. What friendly people.
We will be going back to Holmhill to celebrate out first anniversary and revisit the scenery and local attractions. It could not have been a better place for us to spend our first night of married bliss.
