We stayed at Hillsdale for two nights in September. We were given a very warm welcome by George and were pleasantly surprised that our room was ready by 1.00. The whole ambiance of Hillsdale is wonderful. Our room was spotless and very well appointed and nothing was too much trouble for George and Lindsey. Breakfast was superb, dining room very... More

Excellent accommodation. Clean, well presented with modern decoration and furniture. Great location close to all local amenities. Bedroom and bathroom on the small side but more than adequate. Free Car parking available. Breakfast hearty.

My husband and I spent two nights (6th & 7th Sept) at this lovely B&B, for a birthday treat for my husband. From the minute you walk in to be greeted by George the owner, we were made to feel welcome. We have stayed in Bed & Breakfast accommodation in the past, and I haven't felt as comfortable as I...
