A Really Fab Hotel
Posted Aug 21, 2016 on Hotels
We booked this only a few days before leaving and it was a little outside the area where we wanted to stay (closer to the coast). However, we weren't disappointed and despite the 40 minute drive down to Bridport etc it was a fantastic base. The Haynes Motor Museum, Fleet Air Arm, Sherborne Castle etc are all a short drive from Bower Hinton along with countless other attractions and of course the Jurassic Coast.
We took a Junior Suite so we had large French Doors opening out onto the garden etc, really beautiful.
Great bath (very quick to run) and a spacious bathroom, bedroom area great and the lounge area with a leather couch and big TV great for relaxing after a full day out.
Breakfast was quite superb and all to the highest standard. If I were to make one small criticism, the 9:00 close for breakfast was a little tight for us. We spend our lives on the clock and could have done without this. Mind you, we tended to do some work in the mornings, head out around lunchtime and we were never back before 22:00. I did notice it catch one or two others out during our week long stay so it may be worth the hotel reviewing this. Not a biggy, just an observation.
All in all, I'd highly recommend The Hollies. Fantastic.
