Stayed with Ted and Maggie for four nights. Excellent accommodations and delicious traditional English breakfast - loved the bangers and eggs. We picked the B&B for its central location in SE England. Visited Dover, Battle, Hastings, Salisbury, Canterbury, Chartwell, and Eastbourne - all easy drives from Hill Cottage.

Stayed for one night while attending a wedding but wish we could have stayed longer. Lovely property and so quaint. Made extremely welcome even though there for just 1 night. Thoroughly recommend for a short stay with lots to see and do n the surrounding areas. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.

We stayed at Hill Cottage, Crowborough for 6 Nights. Ted and Maggie were "Genuinely Warm and Welcoming and the Perfect Hosts".

Hill Cottage is "Excllent Value for Money" as the Cottage is charming and close to local tourist attractions and ammenities. We stayed in Room 3 which had a separate bathroom which was perfect for us as I love a bath after a long day site seeing. The area has alot of Historical Castles and Places to visit due to close proximity to London. It is an ideal area to visit with it's Quaint Villages with theTile Hung and Thatched Houses, Tea Shops and Antique Shops which have been great to discover.

The Room was left very clean and tidy and made nice for my return each evening. The Full English Breakfast was Excellent and ideal to setup you up for the day. It was a really hot week when we visited and Magggie provided plenty of Orange Juice in the morning which I thought was a lovely touch.

What made my stay perfect was Ted and Maggie themselves, as they are "Genuinely Nice People" who go over and above to make sure that your stay with them is the best.

I have stayed in other B&B's in the area and Maggie and Ted sttod out because they simply could not do enough for me that week, I simply felt completely relaxed and at home. They are hard working honest people who deserve an excellent 5 star review xxx.

I would not hesitate to book again and I am looking forward to my next visit.

As my partner said, after his treatment at the wonderful Integrated Cancer Clinic nearby, we would return after a long day, 'Oh it's good to be home!
Maggie and Ted were wonderful to us, so kind, thoughtful and catered to our every need! Ted even supplied us with a small fridge in which we could keep all my partner's Aloe Vera, Omega oils and other supplements and a cold drink. We had to bring our own breakfast stuff due to my partner's blood cancer, all organic etc, but Maggie was great at helping us out and always came up with a cooked breakfast as well as cooking our Welsh Laverbread each day. She had nice organic bread too.
Both Ted and Maggie have great personalities. They ran the pub outside and have since taken on a few more since retiring! (Mad or What?) Ted always cleans the bedrooms as Maggie has him well trained, haha!
We returned, again and again. Maggie had us in stitches laughing with her stories, and that is something we had not done for months, since my partner had re-lapsed from 'Mantle Cell Lymphoma', so this really says something!
Maggie and Ted have a cosy place, and Big Hearts.

Thanks for your review and we're glad you enjoyed your stay, you can sometimes hear noises from other rooms but afraid that's just part of being such a very old characterful cottage (insulation wasn't much of an issue when this was built!).

The back garden is our own preserve leading as it does straight from our private accommodation, but there is seating for guests in the front garden which is frequently used, benefitting from some very fragrant rose bushes and overlooking the pub next door (also frequently used by guests)

Hill Cottage is a very clean and cosy B&B. I was given a warm welcome and was shown around. Having your own key is most helpful. I enjoyed the breakfast, ( lots of choice and a full English ).
A couple of minor problems I found, having to bathroom not en suite but across the landing was a bit a nuisance and the wall are quite thin and I could hear the ladies in the next room talking away early in the morning. But nothing to stop me returning

Thanks very much for your review, we're pleased you found it clean, comfortable and friendly, and enjoyed breakfast. We're sorry you found the fact the bathroom was not en-suite inconvenient, but we do make sure everyone who books a room knows exactly what they are getting at the time they book so there are no surprises, and our website makes the facilities of each room very clear. And of course, it is a very old (17th Century) property which is not built to modern standards, so occasionally some guests may be overheard, though this is not a frequent complaint.
