Have been to the Holly Hotel several times and have not been disappointed. The victorian decor and history surround you. The tea caddy contains a wide variety of tea bags from which to choose and the food is lovely. The waitstaff is attentive and knowledgeable. A great place to meet a friend or a group. A step back in time.
Went to a special occasion tea at the Grand Oak Herb Farm expecting a pleasant afternoon with friends over tea. It was unclear where to park or proceed to the tea, the outdoor area was unkept and in disrepair. Interaction with the owner/hostess was nearly nonexistent while the decor seemed rather dated. There was no choice in tea as it was prepared ahead of time. I would not recommend or go here again. It was embarrassing to have suggested it.
