I'm not sure what I enjoyed most. The lovely old-suburban street, the closeness to the heart of downtown, the beautiful yard and landscaping that makes you feel like you're in a forest clearing, the old 1880s mansion and antiques, the huge bedroom, the unbelievable breakfasts by a cooking professional, or the professional massage by Stefan, the co-owner. Talk about perks... More

Hillcrest House is "the" quintessential B&B. From your first step on to the property, you feel like you're entering another era, especially first seeing the open, grand entrance hallway with the Victorian-styled rooms leading off of it. Tastefully decorated, yet suited practically to accommodate guests comfortably, this beauty is worth another visit. My husband and I spent 3 nights here.... More

Stayed two nights at beginning of September with my daughter who was moving into residence at St. Jerome's (U. of Waterloo), then one night on my own. We had a large suite with separate sitting room and our own bathroom as well as queen bedroom. Entirely private. The house is a turn-of-the century gem, beautifully appointed with lush gardens featuring... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the wonderful Hillcrest House B&B in Waterloo. We toured the K-W countryside earlier in the day and were greeted by our charming hostess Wendy upon arrival. We had booked a dinner prepared by her husband Stefan " Trust the Fat Guy" chef. What a fabulous meal, and so very entertaining. We never... More

We stayed at Hillcrest for two nights. The beautiful historic house is located in a quiet and green street close to uptown waterloo. Stefan was a wonderful host, the breakfast simply fantastic. It could not have been any better!

I stayed at Hillcrest House for two nights while visiting Waterloo for business. I was actually tending to stay at a hotel with colleagues but am I ever glad that I opted for Hillcrest House. Stefan and Wendy are gracious hosts that are clearly running a very professional, warm and excellent B&B. The B&B is a beautiful historic house and... More

Various family members have stayed at Hillcrest House 4 times this past year and always feel welcome to return again. Wendy and Stefan are very friendly and helpful and try to accommodate all your needs, even providing a few extras. The breakfasts are wonderful. Great location for visiting uptown or the University.

We stayed here for 3 nights in September 2012. Our impression of this place is wonderful, one cannot really find any fault. The owners Stefan and Wendy are nice people, who are really interested in providing fine yet relaxed hospitality at very reasonable prices. We would not hesitate to stay here again should we be back to Waterloo ! We... More

October 2012. Stefan and Wendy, were very friendly and hospitable. The Stephan's breakfast was very delicious, with large bowls of fresh fruit and berries with yogurt and granola, and eggs benedict. Our room on the second floor was very large and comfortable with a remote controlled fireplace. Hillcrest House is in a quiet neighborhood close to downtown Waterloo shops and... More
