Reviewed May 15, 2013

My husband and I stayed in the Hollies last weekend, it was truly a lovely stay David and Jo were terrific hosts. This is a very clean house, in fact after leaving I feel I need to redecorate our bathroom at home. It was about a 15 minute walk into town which is slightly downhill not too bad. Breakfast was delicious, I would recommend having tea with it as its proper tea served with a tea strainer. Jo even makes his own jam which is amazing, we bought some to bring home. Amber the cat is so sweet and very well trained. The library is interesting as are all the pictures around the house. We slept in the English room, very comfortable. Would love to go back again.

It was towards the end of last year (2012) that we spent a long weekend in The Hollies whilst visiting Bath for the second time. Therefore, I have had time to reflect on our time spent at The Hollies. Although it was November, the welcome we received could not have been warmer and we slept in the interestingly decorated Chinese Room. Our hosts were exceptionally charming and engaged us in much conversation especially over the breakfasts which were first class, especially the salmon in scrambled eggs. The bed was very comfortable with crisp linen sheets and the bedroom very quiet as it looks out over the enclosed garden. Car parking is provided so we easily walked into, and back from, town although the return journey is uphill - there is a good bus service for anyone who has some difficulty in walking. I can thoroughly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who enjoys comfort and tranquility.

It's the owners David and Jo's stylish and loved home. We stayed in the Chinese bedroom which overlooks the garden. A comfortable bed made all the difference after a day's exploring. The shower cubicle is fine for someone with a slim physic. A rather portly person might encounter a problem. The property was spotlessly clean and very welcoming. We enjoyed the English breakfast which is served in the dining room with guest sitting around an oval table. This encourages contact and we had some enjoyable conversations.
Full marks for style, comfort, service and friendliness.

We stayed in The Hollies, Bath UK for 2 night in the English Room. The room is comfortable with kingsize bed and large bathroom. The house is full of special things, details and pictures to discover. You can enjoy your time in quiet library or admire true English cat Amber :-) Hollies Breakfast is something special to keep English flavor in your memory, thanks to David and Joe! I wish i have a chance to visit Bath UK again, The Hollies will be in my route for sure!

A bit of the old English charm of yesteryear. What an amazing place to find yourself in, the rooms are themed and the whole house is a Museum of interesting bits and pieces. I could have explored the library for hours if I had the time. Both David and Joe are great hosts and breakfasts reminded us of a proper English meal with all the best at the table. The home made Jams and marmalades were lovely and added that little touch of elegance to the beginning of each day. If we are on Bath again this is where we will stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hollies for 3 nights over the Easter weekend. We could not imagine better hosts than Joe and David. They are so helpful and the breakfast made by Joe is just superb. My boyfriend is vegetarian and Joe made him a delicious meat free breakfast, every morning giving him three options of what he could make. each option was lovingly prepared.
The house is stunning, different theme in each of the 3 rooms. We stayed at the Chinese room overlooking the gorgeous garden and a beautiful church.
The house is located about 20 minutes walk from town but there is also a bus service running quite frequently.
We are really hoping to go back to Bath one day and we will be definitely staying again at the Hollies!!

Thank you very much guys for a great stay xx
