Not desperately impressed. The heating wasn't turned on until we got there - in the Highlands in winter that meant spending the first day wearing hats and coats indoors for the first day. Also, we were charged an extra £100 for bringing two extra people even though those two extra were under fives. Admittedly, I should have checked what the deal was, but it still meant the weekend ended on something of a sour note. Oh well, you might have more luck.
We went here to celebrate our silver wedding with our family which included people who had travelled from the south of England and Australia. It was a huge success. The accommodation was ideal and the house is extremely well equipped. The bedrooms were lovely and the views from the master bedroom balcony are fab. The kitchen was great for cooking and gatherings and we were also lucky enough to have Judy come in and cater for us on two occasions which was quite outstanding. We were a large party, but the house is very spacious it never felt crowded. There is a lovely large livingroom for when everyone gets together and the dining room too is spacious enough for a large party and it has great views. It is a great place to stay.
Very comfortable and well equipped accommodation in a great location. Would definitely recommend Holmhill House.
We rented the house for our annual trip away, 13 adults and 2 children in all. The house fitted our criteria perfectly with a big kitchen, big dining room and sitting room for the adults and a seperate TV room and a games room for the kids. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook a meal for all on the first night and the dining room sat us all comfortably. Not all the rooms are ensuite but if you are family or long standing friends this is not a challange and the attic space is perfect with two rooms sharing a lovely bathroom. It was really nice to come in from a walk, light the coal fire and relax in the sitting room before heading out. Good area as well with a few really good restaurants and some nice walks for all levels of fitness. Would recomend this highly.
Mel and Mike were lovely hosts The house itself had a lovely feel, very homely and beautifully decorated. We had the Honeymoon Suite (!) as we were alone there - we timed it right as it had been full the week before and it was to be shortly after! The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable, quiet location so you will get a good night's sleep.
The choice at breakfast was excellent - Mel even arranged kippers for me as a special request! Nothing was too much bother and both gave us good advice on eateries and places to visit in the area. Excellent location to tour the area - visited the coast, Balmoral, Culloden - so much to see.
