Its so sad but the Hotel Burnt down last week. We had to go somewhere else. I wish them a quick return to regular operations and pray that they will continue on serving the community. It really was a wonderful place with exceptional food.

A deep cleaning and dusting. We realize this is a historic building however there is no reason it cannot be a sanitary one. We attended the annual morel mushroom dinner. Although excellent it was not as good as last year’s. It seems that they skimped on the mushrooms and the next day we received an email stating there was a bumper crop this year and you could purchase mushrooms from the hotel???

We had a lovely waitress, Carrie. Our appetizer, soup, salad and dinners were all wonderful. I loved the Beef Wellington. Thoroughly enjoyed visiting such a charming town, walking around the restaurant, looking at the pictures, and getting a little history from another waitress. We went for a special occasion. While the place is pricey, there really aren't a lot of restaurants like it within a couple of hours of Lansing. I'd always wanted to make the drive to have dinner there, and so glad I did.

I enjoyed the food, however, I felt the duck could have been cooked a little longer. It was difficult to get off the bone, which lead to a less pleasant eating experience. Our waited was excellent and I hope to have her again on subsequent trips.

Always a wonderful experience at The Holly Hotel. The only minor comment was that while pleasant and attentive, our service was a little slow. We felt like we were waiting for the next course after the prior one had been removed. Not sure it was our server’s fault.

Tony and I actually got married right before our dinner. Kate and Chrissy made sure everything was perfect -- from the brief ceremony to the delicious New Year's Eve menu. The entire staff is always gracious, friendly and considerate. On top of that, who can beat the atmosphere? We always love dining at the Holly Hotel, which we consider a real find! Now, we have a lasting and loving memory. Thank you!

I left a note for the chef. Walleye was supposed to be served with lemon and dill (zero flavor) and basil pesto side (no basil pesto). Very disappointed! Have eaten there many times and was surprised my meal was so “marginally ordinary”

The changes to the Alley cat are great. We have seen three performances and enjoyed each one. The soups salads and entrees are very good though sometimes the entry is a little heavy on the salt. The desserts need work - we have been disappointed 2 out of three times. They used to be much better.

It has been to long since our last visit to the Holly Hotel. I love the feel of this place, I love eating on real china that is mismatched. The cozy little table and candle light. Meal was amazing! We did see the show and really enjoyed ourselves. We did not stay for the second set, but wished we could have. This was truly a wonderful treat that we need to make happen more often.
