A lovely house, with comfortable rooms. The view out onto the river is great, but it's a small and quiet village, with not a lot to do unless you drive a little further afield. The breakfast is very good, and the couple who run the place are lovely and welcoming.

Thank you for your nice comments. Unfortunately in Autumn there is not so much going on in the village, the river walks are lovely around here in the summer and of course the fishing etc. It was very nice to meet you both

Had another fantastic stay with Bob and Mary. Great couple. The rooms are very clean and its in a great location by the river. They are popular and can see why. Breakfast choices are good and speedy service. Bobs full English is a must. Sets any one up for the day. Will definitely go back

Have had another great stay at Crosskeys. Mary and Bob are very welcoming and their hospitality is well worth experiencing - as are Bob's breakfasts! Tranquil location but well positioned for access to all resorts and shopping!!

Spent only one night at this quaint b&b the room breakfast and cleanlyness could not be faulted. The village of Hilgay has one pub that opens at 4 pm does not serve food and is neither quaint or welcoming there is no other restaurants in the village which could make a longer stay difficult

Thank you for your comments about our B&B, unfortunately the pubs opening is out of our hands, it is being refurbished and when the owners are up here full time they will be doing food again. There are plenty of lovely places to eat within a two mile radius, and we will always order a taxi if guests do not...

We spent only one night here over a bank holiday and on a typical cold rainy day we were greeted by a welcoming and warm bedroom and sitting room overlooking the river with lovely views. The decoration and furnishings are quite old and of a traditional style but it was spotless and very comfortable. Lots of toiletries in the bathroom...

Stayed here for just one night. Room was spotless and a good size. Overlooked the river and was very peaceful, despite being close to the A10.

A very nice location, right on the river. Hosts Bob & Mary were wonderful, great people and very talkative and helpful. Accommodation was excellent, very nice house. Breakfast was super, freshly cooked and a wide variety of choice. They certainly know how to look after their guests and were returning guests too, which tells you a lot. Well done, brilliant...

Wonderful location our room looked over the river. Greeted not only by owner Mary but also by two ducks. Warm welcome by both hosts at breakfast which was lovely. We also had our dog with us, he was also made welcome no problem for him to stay which is nice. Although a short stay it was a lovely break.
