Hillside Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #4 of 11 Newry B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Hillside is a very comfortable place with plenty of space and great views. But the best part is the super humor and sincere desire to make us comfortable that we felt from our host. Yummy breakfast too.

We recently spent a couple of nights at Hillside. Spacious room with comfortable bed; excellent breakfast with home made compote and home made cake; good coffee. Well appointed house with separate lounge for guests. Blair made us feel at home to the extent that we felt like part of the family - so much so that we felt we had to drop in on the way back from Dublin to tell him our good news. Looking forward to receiving the photos Blair took of the Hillside piping session.

Just checked out from Hillside and missing it already. Spent a great weekend with Blair at Hillside and we can't recommend this place enough. Comfy clean and cosy with a home from home feeling. Blair is a great host who totally looked after us with tasty breakfasts each day. You have to stay here if you are in the area.

Nice B&B in the countryside. There is room for parking and taking a taxi from the town center is about 7 pounds. The room we stayed in was spacious, had a great view out the window, and was quite. The bedroom was clean and well put together. The breakfast was great and the owner was very accommodating. We arrived very early in the day and he let us leave our bags at the B&B while we toured the town. He was nice enough to call a taxi for us put our bags in our room when the room was ready.

We stayed at Hillside B&B in September 2013. Blair was very welcoming. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable. Hillside is in the country and it was relaxing to be outside the busy town of Newry. Blair had the house decorated very nice, lots of detail in every room.

Thanks for the lovely review guys, I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at Hillside and the photos look good too.

It was a pleasure having you both to stay - I really enjoyed our breakfast chat (it made me all nostalgic for Canada and some authentic Tim Hortons coffee !)

Hopefully the journey home was a good one.

Hillside B&B is in fairly remote area and not within walking distance to Irvine. Our room was clean and spacious. If in the future we needed a stop- over stay in this area we would use it again, mostly because of Bair's personal interest in the well being of his guests.

Blair was a friendly and attentive host; with a warm welcome and good crack he was exactly what you hope for when you go on holiday. The room was clean with modern décor and lovely views and the breakfast was wonderful, with vegetarians well catered for too! Unfortunately we could only stay for one night but we would definitely recommend the Hillside B&B as the perfect base to explore the area.
