Thank you Jan and Patrick for a wonderful stay. You made my family very welcome, Jan helped decorate the room with balloon's & banners for my dad's 60th birthday, nothing was to much trouble. Very friendly people, breakfast was very nice, clean, lovely place. Would recommend to others. Also thank you for the e-mail of photo's of the decorated room....

The rooms at Hollies B&B are furnished and decorated to a very high standard. Both have large ensuite bathrooms and the double bedroom has French doors opening onto the garden. The twin room has a bath and the double just a shower - although the shower is exceptionally large. The proprietors are extremely welcoming and helpful and even drove all...

Staying with Jan and Patrick was perfect.They made us feel very welcome and obviously enjoy having guests in their luxurious home. Breakfast was plentiful, room very comfy. Use of large pretty garden and visits from Bramble the sweet little dog were a real bonus. Thank you both.

Spent 2 nights at The Hollies - room was great as was the en-suite. Beautifully clean and tidy plus a lovely garden. Janette is a very welcoming person and could not do too much for us despite a medical emergency for poor Bramble - the dog! (Hope she is fully recovered.) Overall could not fault the experience. Many thanks. Francis...

We stayed at the Hollies for one night and would certainly recommend this B & B as a lovely place to stay. Our bedroom was immaculate and Janette was very friendly and welcoming. The house and garden is kept to a very high standard. There is a very nice Pub The Royal Oak close by for evening meals.

We stayed at the Hollies for a very pleasant two nights. We had the twin room which is very comfortable and spacious with attached 'large' beautifully equipped bathroom. Janette and Patrick were both friendly, welcoming and helpful. Would recommend this B&B as a great place to stay, near the sea and near the forest with Lymington close by.

Thank you Jacqui, you and Kevin were great fun guests. I note your comment about the shampoo - always slightly difficult as everyone has personal preferences. I will have a look for a hair and body wash option which will suit everyone hopefully without adding too much clutter to the en-suites. Hope to see you again.

Looking forward to welcoming you both to The Hollies again in the future. It is so helpful, as a fledgling business to have constructive feedback. Your comments about putting bin liners into the waste bins and making sure there is a hanger suitable for trousers in the wardrobe has already been put into practice - thank you.
