The other guests were also couples and came from all walks of life so it was a really charming mix. The breakfasts were enormous and delicious, the... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at Hillsdale in peak season. The location was ideal and nice and quiet each night. George and Lindsey were excellent hosts and served up a tasty and prompt cooked breakfast. Additionally, they took time to chat and give useful information about walks and the local area. Free parking was provided two minutes down... More

Having looked at other reviews before booking, we chose Hillsdale for our week's stay. Arriving late afternoon after a day walking we opened the door to a lovely room. The next morning we were greeted with a friendly George as we arrived for breakfast and Lindsey had carefully catered for my strict diet. George instantly took interest in what we... More

George and Lindsey are the perfect hosts. Lovely place, clean, friendly and fab. We have been 4 times! Guests will always be offered a reduced rate if they ring direct instead of using online agencies.

We stayed in the Hillside for one night traveling home from Bristol, The Location was very central to the town and a short walk to all the restaurants and bars . The B&B is on a one way street with limited parking during the day .... A plus point is the owners have access to off street parking a short... More

What a great little guest house! Our room was attractive and homely, with a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was quite small, but perfectly adequate. There was a very generous supply of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits each day in the room, which we very much appreciated.We were impressed by how quiet the room was in spite of the volume... More
