      Historical Traveler Reviews The Hollies Bath

      Wonderful week at the Hollies

      from

      My wife and I have not stopped talking about the great week we spent at The Hollies. The moment we entered the exquisite garden, we knew we'd chosen the best B&B in Bath. The sumptuous interiors of the house, its unique furnishings, and sophisticated but very personal decorations (paintings, photos, artifacts, China, silver collection, etc.) created a home away from home for us during the week of our stay. Joe and David are real experts in the hosting arena. Great food, a wealth of ideas for local visits, and careful attention to our entire travel requirements. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They're at the top of our list, I suggest you put them at the top of yours.

      Fantastic hospitality.

      from

      Where to start is the problem. The Hollies is superbly furnished with taste and style reflecting David and Joe's personalities.

      We contacted them following a recommendation and were amazed by the house as soon as we entered the drive.

      The Hollies has beautiful gardens to relax in and the interior of the house is what i can only describe as fantastic.

      The cleanliness style and comfort (very comfortable) of the rooms is first class and i will certainly not be looking for anywhere else on my next visit to Bath.

      Thank you David and Joe, 'one of the nicest full english breakfasts in town.

      Definitely one to try.

      Fine and friendly, and as interesting as Bath itself

      from

      if a long weekend is not enough for Bath, it's certainly not enough for the Hollies. Tastefully decorated with infinite personal touches, both the bedrooms and the house is comfortable and welcoming. a great place to relax and a perfect distance from the centre of the town to make a visit to Bath a complete experience. The hosts are part of a fine classic tradition with a charming depth of culture.

      What a find!

      from

      Having visited Bath many times we really thought we knew most of its abundant treasures, but one that had remained hidden from us until now is The Hollies. The biggest dilemma we now faced was risking sharing this great find with others.

      Searching for a one night stopover we avoided the usual chain hotel sites & looked up the BIGHA (Bath Independent Guest House Association) site & came upon this delightful home purely by chance.

      Arriving after a long journey on a horribly rainy night we entered through a beautiful garden heavy with the scent of jasmine & honeysuckle.

      Our hosts David, Jo & the delectable Amber (an exquisite cat) were most warm & welcoming to these two weary travellers, showing us to our "Indian Room" which had every possible comfort, the thickest white towels & bath robes,egyptian cotton sheets on a bed truly designed for sleep. Exquisite furnishings from the collections of Indian soldier miniatures to the wall coverings to the silk interlined curtains to the wonderful prints & photographs on the walls made the room truly unique.

      A thoughtful touch also, was once a time for breakfast had been agreed, Jo appeared with a flask of real cold milk for our room, none of that dreadful long life stuff. I really could go on for ever listing all the other thoughtful touches in the room but 'll save those for you to discover & finally mention the breakfast .

      Oh my goodness, wonderful food served at a table laid with immaculate attention to detail, complete with home made preserves.(bought a jar of delicious lime & grapefruit with rum to take home-yum!) Great company in the form of two other couples who were also obviously enjoying their stay led to a lively conversation over the breakfast table.

      Couldn't believe we had only booked one night, really hope to go back very soon, if David & Jo can find room for us!!

      One of the most wonderful and charming B & B's in the world

      from

      We stayed in the Hollies 5 days. This is one of the most beautiful and charming house, we ever saw. David and Joe are so nice, charming and interesting with a lot of soul. Joe's breakfast is super. The house is impressive between a lot of history and soul. Every detail is absorbing and in the library you could probably stay for years. Joes garden is colourful, romantic and full of different flowers and herbs. Fantastic. The rooms are clean and sweet and the beds most comfortable. If you stay there, you never will forget the experience and the impressions you got. We didn't want to leave and will come back very, very soon. Petra and Dragan.

      Hollies Charm

      from

      We stayed at The Hollies for a long weekend and wish that we had been

      able to stay longer. There are three Rooms which are themed; English,

      Indian and we stayed in the Chinese Room which has a lovely view of the garden adjoining the church next door and across to the hills and

      trees in the distance. We were very comfortable, the room was immaculate with a small but perfectly formed ensuite bathroom - everything you could need was provided by our courteous and efficient

      hosts David and Joe. Joe is a wonderful cook, catering for all tastes, the veggie strifry and mushroom dishes were beautiful especially. There is a lovely resident cat, an interesting library and the peaceful garden already referred to above. The Hollies is only 15 minutes walk away from the centre of Bath, so very convenient

      - the hill is steep, good for walking, but there's also a bus so everyone is happy!

      A Walk into Bath

      from

      At The Hollies you will be assured a most relaxing and comfortable stay in exquisitely furnished surroundings. David and Joe have restored The Hollies most sympathetically to a superb level of quality and taste. The beautiful enclosed garden is an oasis of colour and calm lovingly tended by Joe. Altogether a peaceful and tranquil setting just a 20 minute downhill walk into Bath city centre. This is more than just a bed and breakfast...it is the perfect start and end to a busy tourists' day sightseeing. NOT TO BE MISSED!!

      Perfection. All you could wish for in a B&B.

      from

      The Hollies is a stunning property set in a magical garden only 15 minutes walk from the centre of Bath. Your hosts have thought of everything to help make your stay pleasurable. The interior is decorated with an eclectic array of fascinating objects all perfectly presented. The bedrooms are all themed, representing different countries around the world and a wonderful library is yours to enjoy when you fancy winding down after a hard day of site seeing. The breakfast is perfect in every way and you really feel most welcome.

      My wife and I will be back!

      The best B&B we have ever stayed in

      from

      Stepping round the corner as you approch The Hollies you will be very pleasently surprised as to just how stunning this house is. Inside, everything is perfectly placed, clean and oh so interesting - there is an ambience in this place that has to be experienced. Not to mention the most comfortable bed and carefully ironed sheets we have ever slept in. David and Joe are the most welcoming and genuinley charming gents you would ever wish to meet. Joe's breakfasts are impressive and delicous - we were treated with home-made preserves and a first class full english. Stay here and you wont want to leave !!

      Stage one of our journey...arrived at Bristol bus station (an hour early). Having a coffee and a blueberry muffin to keep us going until we get to the airport. I found one of Tilly's cat hairs on my trousers and felt a bit emotional and homesick already. But it's cold and raining here in Bristol City centre, so I'm sure when the 36 degree heat of Bangkok hits me I will forget all about the ...

      Finally, today's the day! We fly tonight from Heathrow. This morning will be spent finishing off final bits of packing-checking what's packed, unpacking it and repacking it! The house will have a final quick clean to leave it tidy for our house guests Tim and Hannah, amble food will be laid out for the cats, Adam will spend ages pretending to tie up all the loose ends of work and I will faff around deciding which shoes to wear to the airport. Then we will be on our ...

      The town had a bustling christmas market to say the least. You could barely move through the crowds. Our tour guide dropped us off to explore and have lunch and we hit the streets.

      ... we hit the road just how much we rely on our phones and the internet to get us out of sticky situations. With my data turned off, a really **** map and rush hour traffic it was proving too hard to find our way so we decided to head for Bath where we were equally confused and I had to turn my data on for some help from my old friend Google, but finally managed to find a Campsite just out of the City to park up for the night.

      ... it's hard to figure out what was there before so most are left white. Here only the ceiling has been restored. Cromwell also smashed most of the windows. Then at the time of the French Revolution when the cathedral at Rouen was damaged and the windows smashed the bishop of Wells gathered up the glass in Rouen and brought it back to Wells to put in their windows. We also visited their library where 15 books from the 15th century are chained, a medieval technique ...
