Hillside is a stunning huge old house which nestles in Ventnor's hills with views over the sea. We were initially drawn to it by Trip Advisor who rate it The Island's number one hotel and it is easy to see why. It was completely revamped last year by the current owners who have successfully created an air of comfy modern sophistication in a picturesque period house adorned with striking artwork. They have provided for all creature comforts from the divine bed, complete with perfect pillows, duvets and linen, to the bang & olufsson television. There's a communal news room with tv and all the papers, there's a living room with comfy chairs, chess board and open fire for those colder nights. If that isn't enough, there's also a conservatory and beautiful grounds to sit in and soak up the views and sunshine. Not to mention a French chef who serves up delicious meals and makes his own sausages. But what really makes Hillside special are the owners - Anna and Gert are warm and generous in their hospitality, but not overpowering. I had a genuine tear in my eye when I left - I have never felt so welcome and at home in a hotel before.
