Well after hearing people talk about it it lived up to all expectation after managing to park (think it could be a nightmare as parking is limited) we were greeted at the door and showed into a small intimate room where we sat and had a few drinks and ordered and then showed to our table the waiter was great...

Hillside is a beautiful and very well run establishment. The decor is fresh and spotless. The food is top quality, home grown, home made and wonderful. It is advertised as a hotel but it is more of a top quality B&B. It does not have the more impersonal feeling that a hotel can offer and you do feel like you... More

From the moment we arrived until our departure, our needs were taken care of by Gert, an excellent host and the rest of the Hillside team. Minimalism and understated luxury is the best way to describe our room and indeed the lounges and restaurant in this boutique hotel gem. We stayed 3 nights and ate in the hotels excellent restaurant... More

A beautiful property, carefully decorated and furnished, welcoming hosts and excellent breakfasts - topped off with a very friendly flock of doves and 3 very comical looking sheep in the garden. If you want to experience something special you won't be disappointed with The Hillside.

We had a lovely lunch here. All our meals were delicious and reasonably priced. The wine list is short but has sufficient good wines, The service was also good. You can see the chef at work from your table. Highly recommended

Its hard to say where the garden ends and the Sea and the sky begin as you gaze dreamily from the many enchanting guest areas of this intoxicating house that nestles like a chocolate box in leafy victorian Ventnor. Sadly we never met its creator, Gert who has sensitively married design, art and nature to produce this magical retreat for... More

This is a fomer traditional B&B which has been refurbished in a lovely mininalist style, complemented by some beautiful artwork. It works very well. Our only gripe was the 9am finish for breakfast, which is too early when you're on holiday!

Sadly we were only able to sample this delightful venue for dinner. It had been recommended by several friends who have stayed there on several occasions. Wonderful views over the town to the sea, a calm atmosphere, tasteful décor with exciting pictures, a choice of charming places to sit and relax after dinner. An excellent meal - a wide choice...

We booked this for a family weekend after reading about it in the Times. We thought we had booked the stables apartment which is on-site next to the hotel. However, it turned out we had been put in the 30PS Apartment which is actually down in the town near the Esplanade. The Hillside itself is a good 10-minute walk up... More
