I would like to endorse everything that has been said in previous reviews of this bed and breakfast situated in the small village of Bordon on the outskirts of Sittingbourne. After close on a 5 hour drive down from North West Leicestershire struggling down the M1 through all those road works, I was greeted by Jane in her "gardening cloths"... More

Some 28 previous reviews from Trip Adviser colleagues have been unanimous in their ratings of Holly House. By any standard, that is unusual, and I wondered why? But not any more! Having just spent 4 days and 3 nights there, I know exactly why. It's terrific, that's why; and thoroughly deserving of its universal praise....which is unnecessary to repeat. It... More

Started here whilst cycling solo from Lancashire to Sicily in May 2014. Holly House is basically the owners house with lovely, comfortable and clean guest rooms and I and my bike were immediately made really welcome here by the very friendly lady owner. Nothing was too much trouble and that lasted through to a wonderful home made breakfast. Dinner was... More

Can't rate Jane and Holly House highly enough. The house is clean, comfortable, very relaxing. Jane is friendly, helpful - nothing too much trouble. Lovely welcoming cup of tea and cake after a ghastly session on the M25 en route. We stayed two nights - full cooked breakfast each morning. Masses of choice, with lots of homemade ingredients (excellent compote... More

We had a very relaxed time at Holly House made more so by Jane. Nothing was too much trouble for her to make sure we had everything we needed.

The rooms are very clean and decorated very specific. Every piece of furniture has a story, comes with some end of the world. Jane willingly tells the story of even... More
