“Great Place to stay and explore Bath”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

Sadly the weather wasn't great but The Hollies was warm and welcoming and we were generously supplied with tea, coffee,biscuits and a flask of proper milk not nasty little sachets. The room was spotless and crammed with fascinating atifacts as we stayed in the Chinese room these all related to China! Interesting information explaining what was there can be found in the room info pack along with hints on places to visit and local restaurants. Breakfast was plentful with lovely fresh fruit as well as the usual cereals followed by full English or whatever particular elements you cared to request cooked freshly to each guest's specification then home made preserves to finish. David and Joe (the owners) were happy to chat and are knowlegeable about the local area. Amber is their beautiful Begal cat and she is equally happy to make you welcome coming to chat during breakfast if you invite her! We didn't get time to explore the library but plan to do that next time we visit.

We stayed here for our anniversary weekend and it was perfect. The owners were very friendly, chatty and highly quirky, with some great stories! It's been a while since we've been so well looked after.

It was close enough that we could easily walk in to Bath city centre. Make sure you go for the awesome breakfasts and homemade marmelades.

I have just returned from a lovely overnight stay - such a shame it wasn't longer. From the moment we arrived, my daughter and I felt 'special' as we were treated to perfect hospitality for the duration of our stay. We had a delicious breakfast with lovely home-made preserves. I will have to return as I forgot to purchase a jar of marmalade to take home! David and Joe are perfect hosts, ably helped by Amber, the cat!

We stayed at the Hollies for 2 nights.
Lovely place! We stayed in the Chinese room.
Nice homely touch to the room, and the whole B&B. However the room was a bit small and I would say slightly overpriced ! The breakfast was just OK.
They have a most fascinating library there with plenty of priceless books and collections!
You could spend a whole day in the library!
David & Joe were very friendly and helpful.

Welcoming and gracious hosts in a wonderful full of character property.
Rooms spotlessly clean and well appointed. Breakfast was superb with home made jams and served with the finest silver.
The library was well worth a little time out in from the hustle and bustle of the christmas market.
Overall recommended. A great little find

What a wonderful find, everything you could want and more in a beautiful city. Very clean and cosy, David and Joe are the perfect hosts, a very delicious breakfast was had and that wonderful home made marmalade. Perfectly located just a short walk from the city centre.

We really enjoyed our weekend stay at The Hollies. David and Joe were very friendly and welcoming, the room (we stayed in the English Room) was cosy and immaculate and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. The little welcome pack with information about the B&B, Bath and local transport was very well put together and useful.
We would definately recommend The Hollies for anyone looking for a great place to stay in Bath and we would love to return next year.
