This is our fourth stay at the HILLSIDE. Gert has a Nordic style about him which we are now used to and we enjoy his company. The hotel décor is maintained to a high standard. It is clean and comfortable. The food served is to a good standard and caters for basic as well as fine dining. The hotel has... More

My partner and I stayed at the separate apartment in Ventnor rather than the Hillside Hotel itself. It was a beautifully renovated 2 bedroom apartment, split across 2 floors with an open plan kitchen and living room and outside terrace - renovated to an extremely high standard. The apartment is above the Bistro which is also owned by the hotel.... More

I called Hillside Hotel to secure a booking having read great reviews on Trip Advisor. Gert, suggested, since we have teenage children, that we might like to consider taking the newly renovated apartment above his Bistro restaurant in the centre of town and just 50m from the beautiful beach. That way, the children could have some freedom but we would... More

We stayed for 2 nights in June, we had a mixed stay. Plus Side - good views, nice room simple clean. Minus Side - the owner is very rigid there is no provision for drinks in the room. You can't get a morning cuppa until breakfast at 8am. They do provide a bottle of tap water, but it's not the... More

Hillside is the perfect getaway hotel with wonderful owners and staff. Gert and Celia really want everyone to have a fantastic stay and the attention to detail is done with a quiet friendliness. The grounds are lovely with beautiful sea views. We took pre dinner drinks on the terrace and even saw a red squirrel. The hotel has connections with... More

The owners have worked hard to create this impressive environment and the food is very good. However we were surprised to be refused a request to even take a coffee or tea to the room, it felt like we weren't trusted not to spoil the decor! Breakfast is too early for those like us who go away to chill and... More

Just back from 3 nights at this very special place. Would encourage you to make the effort and book. I certainly will be going back. Staff were all great, very friendly and could not do enough to make the time special. Room was lovely with amazing view out to sea and the hotel's own garden - very strong ethos to... More

We stayed last weekend with friends and found the hotel excellent in every respect from room quality to friendliness of staff. The position, breakfast quality and ambience was superb. The only factor stopping a rating of five is that on a weekend break where one wants to slow down the pace and chill, breakfast had to be taken between 8am... More
