This hotel is ideally situated less than a quarter of a mile from the railway station and a short walk from the shops and close to the Cathedral. It is a superb family run hotel which takes dogs.The rooms are very comfortable with enough room for our 2 dogs. We could not have been made more welcome.The hotel backs on... More

I have been staying at the Hillcrest approximately twice a month for the past 6 months or so. It is one of the nicest small hotels I have had the pleasure to stay in. I have recommended it to friends & colleagues who have also been impressed. I always get the sense I'm being well taken care of as Mandy... More

The location and the breakfast were a highlight during my stay at Hillcrest, unfortunately my room wasn't great. Although clean, it felt a bit tired, especially the bathroom where the shower wasn't very big and the fittings had holes in! That being said, the breakfast was great and the view from the dining area was nice.

A very good hotel in a great location for the cathedral and castle. We stayed in a room with a four poster bed which was really comfortable and gave us a great night's sleep. Reception was extremely helpful and booked us a table in a local Indian restaurant for our evening meal. Would recommend this hotel for business or as... More

Great Hotel in a really nice location! Dogs are allowed and a great park round the corner (below the hotel) for walking. Nice part of the city and ideal for walking in to the Cathedral, castle, pubs (Wig and Mitre good for beer and food and they allow dogs). Also another great pub which allow dogs just through the park,... More
