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

We have just returned from a glorious weekend at Hillside. A great host, stylish decor and wonderful food. If you are looking for a small independently run hotel with the wow factor, this is it. We are already planning our next visit!

The Hillside Hotel is a haven of peace and tranquility. The house has been beautifully renovated with the owners' Scandinavian flair; everywhere is light, bright and uncluttered. Beautiful artwork adorns the walls. The rooms are not large, but they are perfectly formed, spotlessly clean and bright, and the beds and bedding are high quality. We slept really well here. We...

I have been visiting Ventnor and Bonchurch since I was a child and have stayed in many different properties with family and friends during this time. After a couple of years of exploring elsewhere, I really wanted to return to the area for a short break and to bring along someone who hadn’t experienced the peace of this part of... More

The house is very well presented with quality furniture throughout. The staff are very friendly and the Owner Gert is an amazing host. We were going to stay for just 2 nights but had to extend to 3 because I became ill unfortunately. They looked after us very well and were very accommodating to my needs.

We stayed for four nights, visiting grandchildren from our home in Portugal and had an exceptionally positive experience. The rooms are small but comfortable and extremely clean. Staff are extremely attentive and friendly. The food is home sourced, tasty, well cooked and balanced. The clientele were diverse and interesting. The garden is beautiful and the views across the town and... More

We - a family of three - spent 3 nights in March 2015 in the Hillside Hotel in Ventnor. Super hotel! Super host! Super food! Very, very super! Really the highlight of our 10 day/ five different hotels trip through the UK.
