Positive Reviews

You won't go hungry here.

Guests said that breakfast had all of the bases covered. Large portions kept visitors going until lunch, and there was an excellent selection for large and small eaters alike. Guests also appreciated that the owner went above and beyond in several instances to accommodate different diets.

A warm welcome.

The friendly owners were a welcome sight for weary travellers and their dogs. Guests and their four-legged friends were both welcomed with kind hospitality, and outstanding service was experienced across the board. Dogs were perhaps most spoiled, with treats, toys, a bowl and towel, plus full exploration privileges of the back garden.

Lovely rooms.

Sparkling clean accommodation was a very relaxing place to be, according to guests who enjoyed the peace and quiet. Many pointed out that rooms were also very comfortable, with big beds, lots of light, and everything in good repair.

Negative Reviews

Bathroom a tight squeeze.

A few guests staying here said that bathrooms could have been bigger. With just a shower and basin, there wasn't much room to move around, but most guests said that this was their only complaint.

A little out of the way.

Some guests were expecting a location closer to town. While a four-minute car ride was all it took to get to town centre, some felt that a car was necessary. Perks of the location, though, was that it is close to the seaside, and walking to restaurants is possible, with an affordable taxi ride for guests who overindulge.

Ask for directions.

A small group of guests commented that they had a problem finding Hillview. Those without technology had issues using a map, and others said that the bed and breakfast wasn't clearly marked with signs.
