5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Since 18 years I'm guest in Holly House. I stayed here alone, with my wife, friends or parents. They all enjoyed Holly House.
After a long distance journey I like Dee's warm wellcome serving a tea and home made fruit cake, spending some time for good garden talks.
The high quality of the rooms and the breakfast is constant.
In the garden grows a huge rhododendron, the most photographed in the village.
Dee and Keith developed this garden to a place of an excellent design and a wide selection of plants.
From Holly House glorious gardens as Wakehurst Place, Sheffield Gardens, Standen or Nymanns are nearby.
My leading idea to Holly House are P(eople), P(laces) and P(lants).

We went to this B+B for a one night stop while visiting friends and on arrival were met with a confusing "I wasn't expecting you!", especially seeing we had arrived at the time the elderly owners had requested on the phone just a few days before.
Once shown the room all was looking up as on first appearence the room appeared clean and had a nice view over the garden, even if the decor was a little dated.
However, things soon went down hill; The room had not been dusted well. The on-suite shower room had no catch or lock on the door, so the door kept swinging open, the toilet had been squeezed into the room meaning that plumbing pipes were showing.
When we tried to have a shower in the early evening, prior to going out, we found that there was no hot water and in the morning, dispite there being plenty of hot water, there was no presure so it was more of a dribble than a shower.
The bed was extreemly soft, which is not to my taste as it offered no support at all and led to a restless night. The curtain for the window was about 3 inches thinner than the window and was that thin that no light was blocked out of the room. Oh, and there was no curtain for the second small window but the light for this window was blocked by the shower room door that didn't shut!
Breakfast was served in the conservatory on uncomfortable plastic chairs and with a large sheet hung on the roof that was covered in dead flies.
The breakfast was good. A nice choice of cerial, fruit and yoghurts but the cooked breakfast was served on side plates to try and hide how small it was and my wifes sausage was not cooked properly. But I must say dispite the size my cooked breakfast was fine. The owner seemed more interested in hosting her other elderly guests than in us.
As soon as we had finished breakfast the guest book was put straight onto our table for us to sign right infront of the owner. By this point we had had enough, paid and were glad to leave.
The price for the room was above average for the area and the room and breakfast did not match up to this price. I will not be going back.
