Dinner was very good, good sized meals, dessert very good too. We both haad a big brekky the next morning which was... More

Driven past this place so many times, looked up the hill and thought "I wonder what its like up there". Found out - its brilliant. Fantastic views and a really nice hotel that manages to be luxurious and rustic at the same time. Rustic from all the wood decks, native trees/birds etc and luxurious in food and accommodation. Room was... More

We got a voucher from a local deal site and as this location isn't far from home just had a night away from home for the fun of it. Unfortunately I had a head-cold, so couldn't really taste or smell the dinner, but my wife loved the vegetarian lasagne. The views from the restaurant were amazing, as were the views... More

We stayed one night at the Hillside Hotel in Huntly on a business/ holiday trip. It was sublime. The rooms are enormous, warm and clean with fantastic views. The table set for two and lounge area in the room was a great touch. Two double beds didn't make the huge room feel cluttered but added to the sense of luxury... More

Have stayed at the Hillside Hotel several times now while working in and around Huntly. Really good corporate rate on the accommodation and food. Awesome breakfast. At the end of the day it's good to be able to get away and sit in your room and finish up on work for the day. Quiet, awesome fews, very relaxing. My only... More

As suggested a serene beautiful location to sleep off our jet lag and take in the views and quietness. First class dinner and breakfast in our room as a highlight. We wish we could have stayed longer however on our next trip we may exit from there after traveling north. Super staff, friendly and helpful made me so proud of... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.... this is an Eco Friendly hotel so no marble and glitz - but clean spacious rooms with large beds and quiet, so peaceful surroundings overlooking hills and farmland for miles and miles. We couldn't fault the food - our dinner was equal to any top restaurant and our breakfast - cooked with venison sausage, free... More

The stay was a little disappointing really, was glad I got a half price room rate via a deal website as the room was certainly not worth more than the $99 paid. My first impressions were dust everywhere and cheap finish to paintwork, carpet fitting - a cheap diy job rather than professional trades people I think. Bath tiles/surround were... More
