Holmhill House

House | 9 bedrooms | sleeps 14

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • Car advised
  • Pets welcome
  • Private garden

Holmhill encapsulates the essence of Victorian grandeur with its period features and the delightful proportions of its living space. The incredible detailing of the cornicing clearly demonstrates the skills and workmanship of craftsmen from yesteryear.

However, there is also an understanding that modernity must play its part in making a family holiday to remember and therefore, wireless broad-band, high-definition television with surround sound and a fantastic multi-room music system (do bring your music on an iPod/iPhone!) are also a given.

The property itself is situated in almost an acre of private garden in one of the quietest and most sought after neighborhoods in the town. With tremendous views of the Cairngorms and the added bonus of the town centre just a 5 minute walk away; convenient for groceries, eating out and of course there are also a few pubs to settle into should you wish.

"Great base to explore Speyside"

A lovely, and very large house. Traditional but with all mod cons. Centrally located and easy access to all that Speyside has to offer. Spotlessly clean and well provisioned bedrooms and bathrooms. … More

"Almost a good place."

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, w… More

It's always disappointing when people re-arrange the facts to make a good story.
As you will see from the listing above, Holmhill House sleeps 14 in total. Ms Fielding's booking was confirmed in writing as 12 adults and 2 children (there was no requirement for a cot) - so 14 in total means we're full.
We were asked if we would accommodate the group's arrival 4 hours ahead of the normal entry time and again we were happy to oblige.
On arrival, there were actually 14 adults along with two children in the group. This is obviously a significant problem, but rather than ruin their break by turning them away, the Holmhill Team went into overdrive. We located an extra bed, assembled it and made it up with fresh linen, we then made a cot available for one of the children thereby freeing up another bed for one of the additional adults. We would have declined the booking at outset had we known how many people were going to be staying in the house.
The Highlands do get very cold and for this very reason, the central heating has to be on every day in the winter whether there a guests staying or not. On arrival, all guests are shown where the control for the heating system is and written instructions are also left to ensure that they know how to use the system. We did get a call at around 5.30pm that afternoon from Ms Fielding to say that she couldn't get the central heating to work, we reassured her that we would have someone with her as a matter of urgency. We received a second call 15 minutes or so later to say that they had worked out how to switch it on and all was well.
At the end of their break, we raised with Ms Fielding the problems that had been caused to us by her turning up out of the blue with two more adults than had been expected and charged a token £100 for all the work, effort and inconvenience that had been caused as a result.
We make every effort to ensure that all our guests have a fantastic experience at Holmhill House and we are always disappointed when people don't enjoy their stay but as the saying goes, you can't please all of the people all of the time (but we do try - honestly)!
