“Absolutely fabulous hotel - in a really good central locatioin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We stayed in this hotel following my daughter's wedding in Somerset. I live in Somerset I can thoroughly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to visit the West Dorset coast and Somerset area.

The hotel is situated in Bower Hinton - just a short distance from the A303. The bedrooms are in a separate location to the dining room etc and are arranged around a courtyard. Some over look the fields and the suite's open onto the hotels gardens.

We had a suite - absolutely huge with a very comfortable super king bed, Huge TV and sofa in lounge and excellent bedroom. What struck me most was the quietness of the rooms. No noise whatsoever.

Excellent breakfast with choice of fruit, cereals etc from buffet. The cooked breakfast was cooked to order and silver service - again excellent.

As stated earlier I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to have a base to visit Chesil beach, Bridport, Charmouth, Lyme Regis, Somerset Levels. If you stay here make sure you visit Ham Hill for outstanding views over the countryside. With this hotel you would have the best of both worlds - a quiet comfortable hotel as a base without inflated coastal prices.

And the litmus paper test - Yes I would definitely choose this hotel again

Booked a 2 night stay for 7 over weekend 16th May. Had a fantastic time. The customer service was second to none - everyone from owners, reception staff and bar staff were amazing. Some of our party stayed in the 2 bedroomed suite with kitchen and living area - which was ideal. All our rooms had french doors onto the patio area so we were able to make the most of the glorious weather.
We had dinner in the restaurant on the Saturday night. The food was very good and the service was very attentive.
Would highly recommend the Hollies Hotel.

Just returned from a fantastic weekend spent at the Hollies with a group of girlfriends, service was second to none , nothing was too much trouble for all the staff, friendly welcoming and attentive, we had the pleasure of service from Richard, Lucy and Cath who were amazing , ate in the restaurant on Saturday and again service and quality of food was faultless, rooms were great, with seating area outside out room which was perfect as the sun shone all weekend, will definitely be returning
Thankyou Hollies for a great stay

Warm, friendly and professionally run hotel. Set in a lovely quiet location not too far from the A303 in Martlock. The road narrows as you leave the 303 towards Martlock so be careful.
The rooms are very clean and have plenty of room. The beds are comfortable and the TVs are large flat screens, so you do not need to sit right in front of it. The food was really good. Will visit again.

Room Tip: Stayed several time and all of my rooms have been very nice.

Have stayed at the Hollies a number of times now, always on business, but I would also choose it for a leisure stay as well. Rooms are well appointed with excellent facilities, mind you they are well spread out over a very long and at times convoluted corridor, I got lost a couple of times. Good Wi Fi reception in all the rooms I have stayed in. The bedrooms are in a separate building to the bar/restaurant, so you might need an umbrella. Cannot fault the staff, plenty of them all with a smile and happy to help. A very nice comfortable bar with a welcoming log fire. Excellent quality food and great service. The restaurant itself though is very tight with unnecessary partitions and over large chairs, it all makes access to the tables very awkward, very much a case of style over convenience. There is a new fitness centre within the main building, but cannot comment.

Room Tip: The higher the room number, the longer the walk

Had a very pleasant 3 night stay in this welcoming and friendly country hotel. Our room, well more a suite, included a separate kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and sitting room all were spacious, spotlessly clean and well appointed, including trouser press, ironing board and a well stocked mini bar and Free wifi. From the lounge sliding doors opening onto a patio area where we sat enjoying drinks over looking the beautiful Somerset countryside. The staff were all very friendly, the type for whom genuinely nothing is to much trouble. The pretty main building houses the bar and restaurant, both had roaring fires which added to the lovely atmosphere. Well stocked bar, good range of wine and the restaurant serves fresh tasty food. On the first night we were tired from a 6 hour journey and decided to use room service, food arrived swiftly but at an additional charge of £5 each! Bower Hinton has very easy access to the main A303 with Yeovil approx 8 miles and the County Town of Taunton about 20 miles. From Taunton the M5 is accessed at junction 25. The hotel offers excellent facilities which include fitness suite, conferencing facilities and large car park. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel in November 2013. The rooms are very comfortable with large good quality beds and adequate seating as well. Big modern bathrooms with large bath and good quality shower. Most rooms on ground level with outside access to patio and are of executive quality. Plenty of car parking with close access to reception. All staff were very friendly and helpful food was excellent with large selection of wines and other beverages. Close access to the A303 with Yeovil being the nearest large town. Would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for good quality accommodation in this area of Somerset.

Room Tip: All rooms are high quality.
