“Friendliness Personified!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

The Jolly Drover's best asset is its people; the owners and their staff were truly friendly and helpful. The rooms are very well appointed, scrupulously clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. Add to that an excellent breakfast plus a good selection of honest, well cooked british pub food, and a stay here is excelent value.

PS: the coffee in the room is brill!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2011

We stayed here for one night and we were very pleasantly surprised at the standard of room: our room (no 4) was not large, but had all the amenities you could want and a lovely modern bathroom with a roomy shower and rain drench shower head. We appreciate that there was real good coffee available in the room and a cafetiere and that towels were white and plentiful.
The service at breakfast was friendly and efficient and the cooked breakfast was good quality and generous. I noticed a board with details of all the local suppliers of food to them. My only gripes would be that the mattress was a little soft for my liking and that there was a smell of fried food in the restaurant area at lunchtime and at breakfast. But for a one or two night stay for an event, this is good value choice.

Room Tip: Room 4 was quiet and had a great shower. Its not big, but it has everything you need. Mattress is...

I was really impressed by the staff and accomodation at the Jolly Drover. Travelling alone to a friends wedding I was feeling nervous, the staff were brilliant and welcoming, lovely food. For the area and excellent accomodation I felt the price was reasonable. Rooms were set in a barn so had own access and key to return any time and remained undisturbed. The room was immaculate, I was delighted with the individual cafatiere and fresh coffee! Large screen TV, huge much too comfortable bed with a gorgeous high powered double shower. I would return without question! Breakfast was equally good, lots of variety on offer and again, lovely staff. I would highly recommend and so close to Liss station, it's in a perfect place!

As this was a business trip, I really wanted a clean, quiet, modern room so I could just relax and unwind in the evenings.

This place vastly exceeded my expectations.

Great room. Clean, quiet, great shower.

Plenty of free parking, automatic security lighting.

What put it over the top for me was the staff / service. Evenings at the pub made me feel completely at home. Nice selection of real ale, full bar, excellent fresh menu selections.

Breakfast was wonderful also.

What else can I say - I think i'll move to Liss.

You couldn't ask for a more friendly and helpful staff, and Barry and Ann are fantastic hosts.
The accommodation was very spacious, modern, warm and spotlessly clean. Not only do you get great accommodation, there's also a fabulous menu with a wonderful selection of home cooked dishes, plus a well stocked bar and a great selection of wines.

If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Hampshire then this is THE place.

We needed a B&B near Petersfield as we were heading there for a wedding. It is definitely worth staying here! From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome. We were running late for the wedding and Barry (the owner) organised us a taxi and even bought him a drink while he waited for us to get ready. The place is very clean and rooms are as new and very comfortable. The food is fantastic and the breakfast was just awesome. Everyone of the staff members we met were nice, and Anne and Barry are fabulous hosts. There is plenty of parking available and some lovely spots to see around the area. I highly recommend The Jolly Drover as a place to stay.
