We decided to stay at the Hillstone lodge primarily because it was right beside the Three Chimneys restaurant and it had good reviews but after staying there we have decided to back later in the year to use as a base for exploring the island.
the building was very modern but also very cosy and the room itself was great with dramatic views which could be seen through full length sliding doors.
My girlfriend works in a 5 star hotel so she always has a good look at cleanliness anywhere we stay and this was in her words "the cleanest place we've ever stayed"
Before we went to the restaurant we sat it the lounge and ordered a glass of wine which was served with free crisps and olives which was a nice touch.
We would definitely advise staying here and we will be returning soon.
