5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

We spent a long weekend at Hillside in October and now understand all the reviews we read that gave this hotel an excellent rating, for that's what it deserves. Very friendly, comfortable and stylish. Good service at all times and excellent dinners in the restaurant - some nice wines and good coffee as well. A really enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: It's quiet anyway - sea views from south facing rooms.

We spent a weekend at Hillside at the end of September during the freak hot weather. Hillside offers very comfortable, stylish accomodation with friendly efficient service. Although the restaurant was fully booked for evening meals we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with a full english cooked to a very high standard with quality ingredients. We had coffee and tea taken at other times on the lovely veranda overlooking the sea.

I have been to Ventnor many times and never realised such a gem existed. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed here in September and were very pleasantly surprised by how good this small hotel was. We had the smallest of the bedrooms, but it had everything that we needed and was extremely clean and comfortable. Gert made us very welcome and couldn't do enough for us. If we return to the island we will definitely use this hotel again,

Myself and friends went for dinner at the hotel. We found the host Gert to be extremely welcoming, and the food was excellent. A beautiful setting and great ambience. Could not fault the evening at all.

I've stayed here a couple of times now and will be coming back again and again. Hillside never seizes to deliver top notch relaxation in beautiful and welcoming surroundings. A brilliant getaway for anyone looking for time off from the hustle and bustle of city life and dwelling!

We stayed for 4 nights at the hotel. Scandanavian hospitality at its best, the team were very welcoming and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the furnishings beautiful. The food was superb!
