Good location, nice sea view, a lot of good paintings, some sculptures, quiet lounges, quiet rooms… Amazing cooking (vegetarian welcome), vegetable from the garden, even the butter is homemade (See pictures of the cooked food of the breakfast…) The owners, very kind, take great care of their clients. The perfection!

The Hillside is on the hill overlooking Ventnor, so it's an easy walk to the town, but less so on the return! The hotel is comfortable, quiet and relaxing, the service is obliging, and the breakfasts are very good (at the time of writing - Jan 2016 - the restaurant is closed for refurb). Small niggles (unreliable wifi, not enough... More

A wonderfully restorative weekend. Utter relaxation and comfort. Delicious breakfast too. Wholeheartedly recommended! The rooms with sea views are great and downstairs it is cosy reading infront of the blazing fire.

By far one of the best hotels we've stayed in, so stylish, loved all the art and decorating touches. But a hotel is only as good as the people and the Hillside has wonderful staff, Katie is delightful and nothing was too much trouble including 'squash ball' eggs - thank you chef!! Ger is a perfect host. Stunning breakfast. We... More

The Hillside Ventnor provides a refreshing and enchanting escape from reality. The special consideration shown by staff was appreciated in a society too often going too fast to care. The overall accommodation, as well as meticulous gardens and sheep paddock, along with a spectacular sea view was a feast for the eyes. The breakfasts and evening meals were very enjoyable,... More

For a five day visit to the Isle of Wight in mid September, my wife and I stayed at the Hillside Hotel, Ventnor. This was a wonderful choice. The entire staff were all friendly, charming and helpful. Our comfortable room had a broad view of lower Ventnor and the coast. The meals were all excellent, especially with fresh fish daily.... More

Hillside is a must if you're looking for somewhere special on the Isle of Wight. The owner Gert is an attentive host. His attention to detail extends throughout to the simple but elegant décor (and fabulous art), and locally sourced food. Whatever can be is made or grown on-site including the bread, butter, yoghurt, granola to made just a few.... More

Rooms, food ,service all first class. Responded to the needs of a demanding and zany group! Some of us arrived late on the the Friday but were sooninstalled and "a table". Great diversityof sitting spaces meant that we did not impose on other guests. The beautiful weather allowed us to enjoy the gardens and their sea view.

The hotel has a good location for driving to all the interesting places. The interior is very nice, the rooms are clean and comfortable and decent sized. The food is nice and there is plenty of space to sit around. The owner is mostly very nice, but very strict on how people should behave, and to keep the hotel quiet-... More

This hotel provides excellent food and service. The rooms are comfortable and well presented. Everything at this hotel is a very high standard. The owner has a great pride in his hotel and this shows. The food is from the hotel gardens and the local catch and is very good quality. We felt that it was the best food we... More
