“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

I stayed at Hillcrest for 3 nights. Lovely property, the room was large and clean and had everything I could ask for (loved the hot water bottle), including a good view over fields. Breakfast was great too - the full Scottish really set me up for the day and the choice of fruit, nuts seeds and jams was excellent.

Frankly we spent most of our time in the area either in the Bladnoch Distillery or chatting up the locals at the Bladnoch Inn.

However our experience at the Hillcrest was just wonderful. The owners were very polite and the property was very nice.

Enjoy

On arrival felt as though you were staying in someones house. Room was large and had bathroom separate from shower room. Lovely toiletries and tea and coffee facilities supplied along with biscuits. Had the option to have dinner there as long as they were notified in advance and we were glad we did. We had roast lamb followed by rhubarb crumble and ice-cream. Good selection at breakfast too which was very good too. We were on itison deal which we felt was very good value.

Friendly stay, breakfast was excellent great choice. Although the place is 4 star i would have put our room Beauly as 3 star. clean and a large room great view. We took the evening meal option the first night which was good wholesome stuff. Lovely lounge to relax in, good stay.

We had a thoroughly pleasant stay in this excellent hotel. The room was spacious and pleasantly furnished without any pretentiousness and the view from the large bay windows in the Moray room superb (the binoculars were a nice touch).

Give yourself a real treat and dine in; you will not rgret it!

Our overnight stay was very good. We booked in for dinner and had a lovely meal prepared by Deborah. The room was clean, bright and had everything you would need for a relaxing break. Andrew and Deborah were great hosts and made you feel relaxed and welcome.
