We returned yestererday from our second 4 day stay at Hillside and we were as delighted second time round as first.
The hotel remains beautiful both inside and outside. Attention to detail is second to none.
Our rooms were sparkling white throughout with lovely splashes of colour from the Welsh wool bed blankets. We had a lovely view from the top of the house underneath the thatched roof over the sea and the vi- sprung beds were very comfortable.
The hosts Anna and Gert are extremely attentive yet unobtrusive offering an exceptional level of service. The Hillside team are fully deserving of all the praise and plaudits they have received.
The communal areas are very comfortable and relaxing spaces as well as being bedecked in many original artworks.
The food and wine were of a high quality and priced to offer very good value. The evening menu has been extended and you are now able to select from a meat, fish or vegetarian option.
One of my favorite things to do on sunny mornings was to take my coffee out on to the terrace after breakfast and sit in the sun reading the papers and drinking in the sea views.
We will return again without doubt next year for our third trip. A wonderful hidden gem to experience in the Isle of Wight.
We wish Annna and Gert all continuing success and enjoyment from a truly remarkable hotel. Enjoy!
