We have loved watching the culture and style of this small hotel develop and deepen. It really is one of the most relaxing, welcoming and attentive places we know. The staff are great - professional, friendly, with great attention to detail. The comfort level is exemplary. The food and wine are fabulous. There's something about the hotel that helps people...

I have waited a few weeks to write my review of a weekend stay at the hillside. I thought it would be unfair to make a snap judgement and not fully reflect on the experience. You see there is a big dilemma. Balancing a nice comfortable hotel with great food and feeling like you had been sent to a naughty... More

We enjoyed a weekend away in the Isle of Wight and stayed at this gem of a hotel. It was a fantastic hotel with wonderful sea views and a warm hug of a welcome when we arrived. A must place to stay and we'll certainly re-visit!

The first stop on our 2 week European vacation was truly unforgettable. Seven family members returning with my Mother's ashes to her birthplace. Gert and his staff treated us like family from the beginning, helping us with arrangements when they couldn't be accomplished from afar. Lovely rooms, views, ambiance. Drinks on the patio and amazing meals. Our stay was a... More

Charming and elegant. Breathtaking views of Ventnor and the sea. Delicious meals prepared with ingredients fresh from the garden. Light and airy rooms with comfortable beds. From first contact Gert and Celia anticipated and met our every need. Hated to leave. Committed to return.

Another wonderful long weekend at Hillside, good food and comfort in a hotel that doubles as an art gallery. The walls are as interesting as the views. Gert and his staff welcome you as if you were returning home. We even now understand the Danish sense of humour!

Having seen the glowing reviews of the Hillside Hotel on tripadvisor, we decided to go there for our planned four night break in the Isle of Wight. We were not disappointed. The reported hospitality of proprietor Gert and his team was, if anything, exceeded during our stay. We received a hearty welcome, even before we reached the reception desk, and... More

We took over the hotel for the weekend,and were extremely well looked after by Celia , and Matt cooked us a special meal on... More

Had dinner with friends at the Hillside Hotel and what a charming and different style of hotel this is. We were made to feel very welcome and had drinks in tiny bar. Would have liked to sit in conservatory area but the sofas are for two and we were three!! Wines were excellent and the dinner we chose exemplary. The... More
