We stayed 5 nights at Holly House from Sept 6th and we enjoyed every night. Every morning we looked forward to the exceptional choices for breakfast and we were never disappointed with Jaynes' front of house service and David's cooking. Every request is greeted with a smile from Jayne and her chocolate and banana cake is equally as pleasing. Thank you David and Jayne we would not hesitate to return.

We visited Holly House for 3 nights in September and can honestly say it is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. Jayne and David go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. From the welcome tea and scones to the evening cakes, port and sherry what more could you ask for? Rooms are beautiful, comfortable and extremely clean. Great shower with complimentary toiletries, also a fridge in the room with some treats. However what knocks socks off even the best UK 4* hotels I have stayed in, is the breakfast. Such a choice and all beautifully cooked and served. Jayne and David should be very proud of what they have achieved and I would definitely recommend staying at Holly House if visiting Bourton. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.

We have just had a superb stay at this utterley delightful B&B in Bourton on the Water. Our hosts Jayne and David are the perfect B&B owners. Friendly, polite and totally professional in every way. The bedrooms are of a good size, wonderfully comfortable beds with excellent quality bed linen. Lots of little luxuries both in and on top of the mini fridge ensure you want for nothing. Beautifully appointed shower rooms serve to complement everything else. The award winning breakfasts are amazing. A good choice of starters together with top quality bacon, sausage, eggs and much more really sets you up for the day ahead. This really is a simply superb place to stay, where Jayne and David really make sure your stay is as memorable as possible. They really do set the benchmark as to how a top quality B&B should be run. They are consumate professionals and we recommend this lovely establishment. A really great stay is 100% assured.

Usually I do not write a comment on trip advisor, but I had to for this stay as this was exceptional. From the booking to arrival and our entire stay David and Jane helped in booking in advance for restaurants and making a surprise birthday weekend very special. Attention to detail in the accommodation put 5* Hotels to shame. Even to the point when we came back from sightseeing and a card and present in the room to wish me a happy Birthday. On arrival back in the evening port, ginger wine and homemade cake to help yourself. Never have I had such service and warm welcome will definitely be back to experience another alternative season very soon. Highly recommend.

We stayed here for a week in August and from arrival to leaving to follow up we cannot rate Jayne and David at Holly House highly enough. To say they were amazing is an understatement. We receive a lovely greeting from Jayne who showed us to the garden and served us homemade fresh from the oven scones and coffee.The quality of breakfast is unbelievable!This is much more than a hotel it is a home from home, with individual touches making for a special holiday such as fully stocked fridge with chocolates, biscuits and snacks alongside a good of teas and coffees. Chocolates port and ginger wine provide for guests in the relaxing lounge downstairs. The themed room was immaculate and decorated in Laura Ashley furnishings. We were sorry to leave. Upon our return we received a lovely email from Jayne and David thanking us for choosing Holly House (which really is a no brainier)and they hoped we had a lovely time and a safe journey home.....Never felt so comfortable and looked after in holiday,we can’t wait to return to Holly House and explore more of the beautiful Cotswolds.....Tracey and David x
