Having seen glowing reviews in national newspapers, that were backed up by highly complimentary testimonials on internet sites, my wife and I decided to entrust Hillside with an important event in our married life – our golden wedding celebration. To accommodate our immediate family we booked three rooms in the hotel and the stables suite in the grounds. This place... More

Gert, who happens to be Danish is the most amazing host who is always around happy to tell you where the best walks are, places of interest and really knowledgeable when it comes... More

A small quirky hotel where nothing was too much trouble. Excellent service and food. Basic but comfortable rooms. Exceptionally clean. Charming clientele. Would have liked in- room tea/coffee making facilities otherwise a perfect choice for our first time visit to the Isle of Wight.

Superbly furnished in Danish style. Bed very comfortable and room scrupulously clean. Breakfast well presented and the Hotel's Bistro in the town is worth a visit. I'll be back. Note bad Vodafone reception at hotel, though good wifi.

The rooms were immaculate and I had one of the best vegetarian full English breakfasts EVER. My husband and I travelled from London without a car and were... More
