Stopped in for breakfast at about 11:00am on Sunday morning. We were told they were no longer serving breakfast, the server suggested we go somewhere else if we wanted breakfast. Should have taken her advise. The food was average but not bad. Because there was only one server, the service was spotty and slow. But the biggest irritation were the...

While staying nearby at a resort, my boyfriend and I stopped in to check out this quaint pub and glad we did. Just had a couple drinks at the bar & shared some fish & fries ($10.99, I think), They were the best fish and fries (I opted for fries over chips) that I have ever had. The beer batter...

So very disappointing I can't imagine how this hotel stays in business. Because of it's historical significance to the area and it's close proximity to Branson attractions yet away from the touristy busy "76 Strip" I wanted to book a room for our Anniversary. Because we live an hour from Branson yet my husband is a performer there I thought...

I started out loving this place, but the cons were just too much to outweigh the positives. No elevators. Central air = the only control you had over the room temperature comes from opening or closing the register above the doors. And the noise. On Friday night, a band plays until 11pm. It's so loud it, you can clearly hear...

I have not stayed at the hotel, but I can tell you that the restaurant is now one of my favorite places to eat. Home-cooked!!! REAL POTATOES and delicious. Very friendly also. I had the home-fried chicken and green beans and mashed potatoes, and sure beat any restaurant where I've ever eaten

I stayed there for the first time a few weeks ago and was surprised to find it. I've attending meetings in Hollister and Branson for years but never knew this little jewel existed.

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.”
