An absolutely fantastic company and would highly recommend Rob and the team who have just finished completely redecorating one of our holiday cottages. They stuck to the schedule, arrived on time every day and cleaned up after themselves! They even came and made good some damage the carpet fitters managed to do, without a second thought! We cannot praise them enough and they will most definitely be on speed dial for the next makeover (unlike the carpet fitters!) Thank you, team!! From us all at Nethway Farm Holiday Cottages.

We recently used O’Neill & Holman to redecorate our rental property, when the previous tenants left it in a mess.

George was able to visit site and provide a quote within a couple of days of my enquiry and was able to best advise me as to what we should have done. Not knowing whether we wanted to sell the property or re-rent it, George was able to advise me the best way forward on redecorating for each option.

George was then able to liaise with Reefresh Cleaning and other trades to ensure that everything went smoothly and within our timescales.

I would have no issue is referring the team at O’Neill & Holman to my friends and business contacts for all works residential or commercial.

Having restored and renovated 5 historical buildings over 11 years I have come across my fair share of trades; some great, some not so great.

On the not so great maybe their work was great but coming with bug bears – on more breaks than a multiple fracture, on the phone more than an A Listed Celeb or popping out down to the merchants as though they had a weak bladder! When you work hard yourself, you want and expect quality, but with fairness and the mick not taken out of you.

I wish I had found george Holman a long time ago. Gave a quote for the work. Go in on the first day to find out how things are going with George saying “Didn’t take me as long as expected so added some extras in” Another day: “I thought it would take more time to complete than it did; so bill will be less.”

That was honorable and fair and a testimony to his character, but to the quality – well – the first guests to stay in Sweet Rose, our romantic holiday home for two, walked up to me on day two of their stay and out of the blue said “just beautiful/stunning”; words to be honest I haven’t heard for a while and why I knew this award winning home needed a makeover but I didn’t know who to use?

With such great work, George got the contract for the two others as well as the external painting of the oldest residency in Torbay.

I would wholeheartedly recommend George, and his business, to all I know – he can make sure his team works as he did- with that a truly winning formula.

O’Neill & Holman decorators came highly recommended to us after numerous difficulties with existing decorating contractors previously employed.

Rob and George responded quickly and were very helpful, we have now instructed them on numerous schemes varying in value you from as little as £800 and up to £40,000.00. The workmanship and attitude of not only them but all of there team is exceptional taking all aspects of working on sensitive projects very seriously.

We would highly recommend them to anyone to cover all aspects of decoration.

This is a quick thank you to O’Neill & Holman for the excellent decorating services you provided recently.

The work was carried out in a timely and professional manner with thorough preparation of all surface before decoration commenced. The service was augmented with the use of quality equipment and materials producing a high-quality finish which I a sure will be long lasting.

I will have no hesitation in recommending your company to others that require quality decorating services in the future.

Having decided we needed get our property on the market swiftly following our estate agents advice, we were left with the problem of finding decorators.

We wanted people who were prepared to pitch up at short notice and efficiently work through the whole house and provide advice where needed to solve small issues until we were slick and span. Having done a lot of refurbishment of houses and commercial properties in the past as a business owner and landlord I know decorating can be a real issue if it’s done badly or takes too long.

From the point of quoting through to completion Rob and George were helpful, timely as well as tidy. Within days the whole property including wall repapering, coverage of ceilings, walls and woodwork were beautifully painted. At each day’s end the house was left tidy and clean making it easier to live in throughout the process.

They have been prepared to go the extra mile giving us top tips for getting the rest of the house ready which worked a dream. We are both pleased with the result and would highly recommend O’Neil and Holman to anyone looking for trustworthy, efficient and profesional team of decorators with superb results.

Oneill & Holman recently carried out some works for us in Kingsbridge. The works involved filling a ceiling and painting the affected area after we had carried out some electrical works.

Rob made all contact with the homeowner, turned up on time, worked in a very clean and tidy manner And on top of all of that, the client (who isnt very easy to please) was over the moon. He couldnt sing Rob and his teams praises highly enough I will continue to recommend Oneill & Holman as i believe they provide a service almost unheard of with in their industry.

I wanted to write and thank you for the excellent job you have recently completed at our offices in Totnes. As a high end agency we need to look the part and our meeting room in particular was starting to look a little worse for wear.

The service we received was excellent, from the professionalism around quoting for the work, the flexibility to handle our changing requests and the ability to get the work carried out when the office would be closed over the Christmas period. As well as sparkling new walls, it barely looked as if anything had been touched, with everything cleaned and hoovered. 

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rob, George and the team and wish you continued success as you grow your business. Thanks for your support and best of luck for future.

Thank you, O’Neill & Holman. Before Christmas, areas of my house were looking damaged and unwelcoming. We had 14 guests due to visit and my wife was not happy. Despite being busy my wife was threatening to start painting.

I remembered seeing Robert O’Neill’s’ 10-minute feature presentation and I have seen first-hand, the attention to detail and skills O’Neill & Holman bring to their work – at properties on the Esplanade in Paignton. Christmas was approaching, and I was sure I had left my request too late.

The service from O’Neill & Holman was simply unbeatable. Despite being busy, Robert sent a painter within two days. Tidy, professional, skilled… are words that fall short of describing the amazing result and outstanding value. O’Neill & Holman are not painters, they are artists.
