I chose to stay at Hillside because of its good rating on Tripadvisor and what a good decision that was. It's modern, clean and comfortable and the owners Richard and Wendy could not have been any more welcoming. The location is good, just a short walk up from the high street. As for the breakfast, really tasty, the sausage and... More

Room was clean and very spacious for the price paid in comparison to a lot of places that I have stayed in previously. Although the shower is... More

The owners Richard & Wendy were very helpful and extremely friendly which made our stay perfect. The location of the B&B is excellent - walking distance to the town centre and great base for exploring the lakes. The room was spotless and the breakfast delicious.

Having been on a tour of the North West, I stayed at the Hillside B&B, having spent the two previous nights in large chain hotels.. well there's no doubt which gave me the best experience. Good VFM, clean and top quality room and en-suite, and a delicious breakfast in the morning. To top of it all of, Richard & Wendy... More

Just come back from this great B & B and had a lovely stay with warm hosts Wendy and Richard. The place is immaculate and our room was comfy and had everything we needed. The breakfast is fantastic with plenty of choice. We can highly recommend this place.

Top floor room, ensuite, small but perfect for my needs. Comfy bed, good shower and great breakfast. All that I could ask for. Also very friendly owners. Many thanks, will stay again. The walk up the hill is great for fitness!

Pleasant room although suffered from paper thin walls. The conversation could be overheard in the adjoining room. The breakfast was excellent. However, the owner does suffer from a particularly patronising attitude tending to talk down to you rather than to you. Woe betide you if you enter the sacred breakfast room before the clock has struck 8.00am. If you arriving... More
