Great place - beautiful decor & a warm welcome. When we arrived it was really busy but the staff were incredibly welcoming and helpful, showing us to our room then helping to find us a table for food. The breakfast was first rate - worth a visit on its own! There was some noise from the pub as our room...

It's always really tricky to respond to such a "review" when there are so many "issues", some valid, some not and some just pure conjecture. To anyone planning to stay with us please once again note the following statement direct from our website (3 of the rooms are directly above our bar area, and although we’ve installed acoustic noise reduction...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hollow Bottom is a beautiful, traditional 17th Century Inn. Recently refurbished to blend the rustic with the contemporary. We have 4 letting rooms, 3 above the bar area and 1 outside near the rear garden. The Hollow Bottom is a bustling, busy country pub and restaurant and therefore noise can be heard in all the bedrooms on occasions despite the heavy acoustic underlay. It is a great place to visit for a unique atmosphere in the most beautiful village in the world. Come and see for yourselves! ... more   less
