Yes, great views are what you get from a B&B named for both the hill and the view! This historic house is perched near the top of the steep George St hill, affording views of the town and the river. The two cute old-fashioned windows in my upstairs corner room revealed no less than six church spires, from some of which issued hourly chimes. The ground floor is graced with a veranda which would no doubt be lovely on a summer evening, and which also affords excellent views. Breakfast was both cooked and continental, and eaten in a charming room with lovely views down the valley. Decoration throughout the house is cottagey and homely; in fact, ‘homely’ is probably quite a good way to describe Hillview House – I really liked it, but don’t come expecting the sort of jazzed-up expensive B&B that Werona, for example, seems to be – this is a different price point. I got my room on Wotif for less than $100 including breakfast, although I was actually upgraded to a large corner room costing about $130. I thought it was good value and would stay there again. There is limited off-street parking but plenty of street parking available.
