We were treated to wonderful hospitality and stayed in a beautifully appointed home. Our meal was first rate. My wife loved the cat....

We recently very much enjoyed a few days at The Hollies Guest House, set in most attractive, secluded surroundings.
Charmingly hosted by David & Jo, we were made most welcome to their extremely comfortable house, of great interest with the bonus of their cosy library.
Excellent breakfast, hygiene standards and the little unexpected touches that make all the difference and will make us hope to return.
We would highly recommend a visit.

Lovely home, in a beautiful city. David made us very welcome, helped with our luggage. Each room has a different theme. We had the Indian room. Lovely views of the garden and church. Amber the cat very affectionate. Beautiful breakfast - home made jam.
A cosy guest house with very comfortable rooms. Very friendly and helpful owners. Very clean & welcoming. Nicely decorated. Super breakfasts with homemade preserves.
We stayed for 2 days during mid-June, and we were in the Indian Room. We were brought there by some local friends. When asked about their impression of the place: "Very posh!" was their response. I could tell they were as impressed as we.
My travel journal has a few notes:
--charming to the hilt
--church steeple peeking through soothing garden
--David & Joe great
--library, a cozy nook
The garden was a big plus for me. We walked by several B&Bs in town that didn't have such a little cove of refuge. After our first experience driving in this country, we needed a place to literally calm ourselves. Another unique thing was the theme of our room. A stroke of genious to get our newly arrived minds away from "UK tourist overload" with the Indian decor. It was very soothing. I also enjoyed their library, filled with fascinating books and knick nacks David & Joe must've picked up on their many travels. And David & Joe themselves were very kind and helpful. Amber the cat was good entertainment from time to time, making a showing here & there. The breakfast lovely, and the dining room we ate it in oozed ambiance and quiet charm.
Yes, it is a little away from town central, but as said by others a cab ride back to the B&B from town is cheap, and of course it's all downhill walking into town. It's nice to be away from the hustle & bustle, especially during the weekend.
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hollies in June and were more than pleased with everything. The rooms were immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable. Dave and Jo were extremely accommodating and cooked up a delicious breakfast. Make sure to take some time to look through the books in their library - there are many old rare gems there. Would highly recommend.
