Hillbark Hotel is a really beautiful and unique hotel experience. The building itself is an old mansion with an interesting and romantic past. It is set in acres of beautiful woodland.
Each of the bedrooms is unique. We have stayed in a few of the rooms and suites and have seen most of the others when the hotel manager gave us a little tour.. Each suite is furnished to a very high standard in a traditional style. The bathrooms are the main attractions. The suites all have amazing bathrooms complete with plasma tv's. One of the suites has a fairly small bedroom, but the biggest bath you have seen in your life! The beds are extremely comfortable!
There are 2 restaurants at the hotel. The Yellow Room is a 5 course meal of a very high standard, but is quite pricey. The Grill Room serves steak-type meals and is less expensive. both restuarants have a lovely ambience and fantastic service.
I have to disagree with a previous reviewer who says that the place is dated! Over the past couple of years, the present owners have painstakingly restored Hillbark to it's former glory, having paid attention to every single detail. As the house was built in the early 1900s, you have to go there expecting to feel like you've landed on the set of a Jane Austin movie, rather than judge your experience by modern chain-hotel standards. If you are looking for that, then go to Malmaison or The Lowry. Hillbark is a unique, luxury hotel that is worth every penny of the money you will pay to stay there.
The only down-side is that it is a very popular wedding venue and most of the hotel gets booked out for weddings at weekends.
