We visited friends in Hollister, MO and stayed for two days at the Inn. Our friends highly recommended the Inn. They were right; it was a memorable experience for us. The style, the furniture all of the appointments were fascinating and rich. The personnel were very friendly and professional. We will go there again.

During our three-day trip in Branson, we agreed that this Inn was our favorite part of our whole trip! The Inn is over a hundred years old and has been completely renovated while maintaining its beautiful Tudor charm. It is in a nice, quiet area away from the traffic and craziness, but also quite handy to Branson Landing as well...

I needed a place to stay for one night before catching a plane back to Chicago and was a little turned off by most of the places I saw in Branson. Just not my cup of tea. I came across the Olde English Inn on TripAdvisor and was immediately swept away by the wonderful history of the building. Every inch...

I just had a destination, masquerade ball wedding for my step-son at this hotel. We booked all of the 21 rooms for 2 days, and had everything from the rehearsal dinner to the reception on the property. When I first started planning it was a little scary because it was difficult to communicate with the property manager at that time....

We thought this would be a charming place for an overnight stay. Could not be more disappointed. Arrived after 6 and were directed to the pub for dinner. After 10 minutes of not being acknowledged by anyone we left and then were chased down by a server. We passed. The bed was comfortable but the room smelled. The odor was...

My daughter worked at Kamp Kanakut just up the road and I drove to pick her up the following morning. I wanted to avoid Branson and it's main drag (Route 76) at any cost. The property is dated, garishly decorated, but acceptable. $92 for a single night, I have no idea how this compares to Branson, but my full breakfast...

We stopped in at the Black Horse Pub on Sunday, 8/4/2013 after spending an inordinate amount of time trying to get through traffic in Branson. We had a wonderful time there, food was excellent and the atmosphere was just what we were looking for. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Would definitely stop back there again.

We had a wonderful visit to Hollister! We picked Ye Olde English Inn because we wanted to avoid the rush of Branson and it worked perfectly! We were able to get around the main street traffic and get to our destinations easier, however, main street was very close should we have wanted to go there. The staff was great and...

The next time you are in or near Hollister MO, you must stay at this very charming inn! My sister, niece, and I recently stayed here for three nights and loved it!

Some of the rooms are a little small but larger rooms are available. The people who work here are the best I have ever encountered. I do travel quite a bit. Location was perfect for our golf vacation needs. Just a few minutes from downtown Branson and also Hwy 76 entertainment/eating establishments.

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.”
