I couldn't be happier with finding this adorable inn venturing to a precious downtown area as we were unfamiliar with the area. It's an excellent location to the Branson landing, Top of the rock, College of the Ozarks dining room etc. pub is attached. The owner is very nice and knowledgeable. The rooms are clean and updated. The decor made... More

Awesome place. Close to Branson but far enough away from traffic. Wonderfully decorated. Staff very helpful and friendly and accommodating. Great getaway for the weekend. Loved waking up to the smell of breakfast. Will definitely be back! Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Stopped for lunch on a Saturday and found one person working the entire restaurant. There are not many options for lunch so we stayed, He did as good as job as possible, but with so many tables he was overwhelmed. Someone did finally come to help out but by than we were ready to leave. The burgers were fine, nothing... More

My husband and I wanted to have a little weekend getaway for our 5 year anniversary. After a number of unsuccessful attempts to book a B&B for the weekend in Branson (they were all booked), I stumbled upon The Old English Inn website. We like staying at historic places rather than a standard hotel/motel room and this one seemed right... More

We weren't sure what to expect when we walked up to the door, but from the moment we walked in we loved it! This charming Inn handed us an actual key to our room, and everything felt very authentic to the time period. The food was delicious and the service was great. We will be returning for sure!

The restaurant was cleaned up recently and the menu has been changed. I live just north of Branson so I have eaten in the restaurant before the new owner took over. I really liked the food before so I decided to try it with the new owners. I won't go back. The menu had only a handful of items on... More

The room was small but that was all we needed. No refrigerator or coffee maker but we knew that and planned for that. Reminded us of the European hotels that we've stayed at. Bed was very comfortable and room clean. They appreciate tips. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. I wanted to iron clothes and they were quick to leave off... More

The room was like Camalot It was a sweet room 304. Just big enough for me and my night. I loved the ceiling fan, very appropriate. Although we could hear the entertainment downstairs, thank goodness he didn't play to 1am as expected. The room had everything we needed for one day. We had breakfast in the dining room that came...

The atmosphere is amazing! The rooms were clean and inviting. You can't beat the location because you can bypass traffic and it's only a mile from Branson Landing. We were able to listen to live music in the evenings and have an amazing English breakfast in the mornings. We will definitely be back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Experience the nostalgic charm of one of the area's most recognized landmarks, The Old English Inn on historic Downing Street in Hollister, Missouri. First opened in 1912, the Inn underwent a full renovation in 2010. Enjoy a luxurious stay in one of 21 beautifully-restored guest suites complete with Elizabethan-style architectural detailing, magnificent wooden beds, fine linens and modern conveniences such as 32" LCD TVs, high-speed internet connection and free local calls. The newly renovated Downing Street Bistro, located on the lower-level, features fine dining for dinner and offers breakfast and a Sunday brunch. Next door, the intimate Black Horse Pub offers a full-selection of spirits along with occasional live performances by local musicians. Located just 3 minutes from the Branson Landing, the Ye Olde English Inn is a must-see piece of Ozarks' History. Bring your camera for a photo of the handcrafted staircase, beautifully landscaped courtyard and the carefully preserved mark on the stone walls of the lobby left by the overflowing White River in 1945. Nearby, see the Hollister Train Depot where many of the Inn's first overnight guests arrived eager to meet the friendly people and explore the breathtaking scenery in Harold Bell Wright's 1907 novel, The Shepherd of the Hills. Many of these 1900-era visitors star in The Inn's extensive photo collection. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, a place to reminisce with friends, military buddies or your extended family, The Old English Inn is the perfect place for any type group event, including weddings and anniversary celebrations. ... more   less

“If you are thinking about getting the suite to accommodate more people, don't. It will accommodate 3 at the most comfortably. The window bed and the ottoman pull out beds are not comfortable. There is a double bed and a standard couch. And you have to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. So if someone is sleeping on the couch they will have to walk through the bedroom in the night. I recommend getting individual rooms.”
