“A wonderful way to round-up our honeymoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

We stayed at Hillcrest for a couple of nights at the end of our honeymoon and while attending another family wedding. We chose Hillcrest based on the reviews and can agree with them all. Gerry offers fantastic warm hospitality and the layout means we had our own privacy and didn't feel we were intruding. The house is beautiful and we loved our attic room. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We would highly recommend and stay again.

We stayed in the Hillcrest B&B for one night during a walking trip around Northumberland. It is located at the edges of Rothbury, but the village centre is easy and quick to reach. The house is a bit hard to find, since there is no B&B sign apparent. But once found, we were immediatley charmed by our host Gerry and his pets, a cat and a dog. After settling down, we were invited to tea and home baked cake, and had an interesting chat with Gerry, who is also a keen walker, who was genuinely interested in everything we had to say. We could dry our wet clothes in his drying room, which was very useful after a wet day out in the moors. The room was very cosy, the bathroom especially pleasing, with high quality body washs and lotions.
Since this is a vegetarian B&B, the vegetarian breakfast options were abundant, and the food was marvellous, with home made bread, fresh fruits and veggie sausages. After the breakfast, Gerry helped us plan our days trip, providing some essential knowledge of the surroundings.
We would love to come back. Definitely recommended to anyone who wants to stay in Rothbury.

We are a couple from Berlin, Germany and we came to Rothbury on a houses and gardens tour, visiting Cragside. Discovering a vegetarian B&B to us felt like a quality seal and it proved itself all along. Hillcrest B&B is a beautifully and carefully restored house with a calm and natural atmosphere, also because it does not boast with decoration. In the room with the ensuite bathroom under the roof we felt very comfortable, private and at home. The breakfast chosen from a wide range was very good, homemade and served in a very friendly dining room on the ground floor. Parking was available right in front.
An overall positive experience, we felt sorry to have only stayed one night.

My husband and I have stayed in 3 b and bs in rothbury over the last few years and this is the best. The room was absolutely beautifully decorated and spotless. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty with local ingredients. Homemade bread gorgeous! Attentive and friendly host. Guests must like dogs though! We will definitely return!

My wife and I stayed one night at Hillcrest House at the end of May.We were met by a very friendly and convivial host, Gerry. Also on the welcoming committee were Nell, the friendly collie, and Alfie the cat. We were offered tea and home-made cake on our arrival. We had been allocated "Mrs Pringle's" room. This is an attic room but don't let the word attic put you off. The room is spacious, clean and tastefully fitted out plus tea-making facilities and TV. There is an en-suite shower room. We booked an evening meal which more than met our expectations for taste and quality. Breakfast again more than met with our expectations. We have no hesitation is awarding Gerry and Hillcrest a five-star rating.

I arrived and was immediately offered tea and homemade biscuits beside a log fire. Gerry is a very attentive and interesting host who knows Rothbury and the surrounding area extremely well. Each day started with a delicious breakfast, lots of choice, perfect porridge! My room was extremely comfortable and quiet. I have already recommended Hillcrest to friends and work colleagues.

A spotless and beautifully maintained period house. A great welcome from Gerry and then log fires, vegetarian delights, and a happy sheepdog to accompany us on walks. Superb value for money.

Room Tip: mrs pringle's room has a quiet aspect and with wonderful light.
