Having seen glowing reviews in national newspapers, that were backed up by highly complimentary testimonials on internet sites, my wife and I decided to entrust Hillside with an important event in our married life – our golden wedding celebration. To accommodate our immediate family we booked three rooms in the hotel and the stables suite in the grounds.
This place is faultless; wonderful atmosphere, relaxing grounds and terraces, fantastic views and sunsets, tasteful design and art, and wonderful staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are simply but very effectively decorated and well appointed, and the beds very comfortable. The highlight of our stay was dinner one night in the hotel surrounded by our family. The food prepared by one of the chefs from the Bistro was absolutely delicious. Gert, Celia and all the staff seemed to go out of their way to make that night and our whole weekend really special for us, but in reality we suspect that they treat all of their guests with equal care, attention to detail, and kindness.
We cannot recommend Hillside highly enough. It’s excellent in every way and we will be returning as soon as possible.
