Stayed there on a lads football weekend and I was a little disappointed. The owner was very friendly but as for the guest house that's another story. It's very dated and needs sprucing up throughout. Slightly strange layout in the room I was in with the wash basin separate from the loo and shower. My bed creaked every time you... More

This is an older Guest House but the price is right. Very friendly and helpful hosts and excellent breakfast. Needs some upgrades. Convenient location on a busy road so back rooms likely quieter. Off street parking a plus.

Myself, my partner and my father have just had a wonderful 4 night stay at The Hill Rise Guest House. From the moment we arrived John and Jacqui (not to mention their dog, Charlie!) made us feel welcome, a theme which continued throughout our stay. Although they only took over in May, and have been extremely busy, they are slowly... More

For the price I was expecting something fairly basic. I proved to be a notch up on that with large clean rooms, comfortable beds and good quality enormous breakfasts. We were at the front and it is right on the main road. That may be a problem for light sleepers as there was a lot of traffic noise.

My husband, stepson and myself stayed overnight at Hillrise as we needed to be in the area the following day. There is parking outside on the main road and the guest house can be found within 1/4 of a mile of the motorway junction so no problems finding the place. We were met by the owner George who showed us... More

I have stayed at Hill Rise, many times. My latest stay was unplanned, and, although I arrived at 10.30pm, I got the usual cheerful greeting from George. This was swiftly followed by, coffee and biscuits, in the lounge. It is a guest house, with hotel service, and a fabulous breakfast. These are just some of reasons I have been returning... More
