Darren is an excellent host. Everything about Hilltop Hotel is also excellent- the evening meal & breakfast were both good quaility with generous portions -the comfortable room- the ambience- would thoroughly recommend staying here.

A totally unique hotel experience with rooms that are a step back in time but with all the mod cons. Each room is as individual as the hotel itself. A family run establishment with great flare and passion for getting it right. Has a strange way of making you feel at home, a rare thing for any venue these days... More

The Hilltop Hotel is quite extraordinary. The decor is quirky and full of character. It is a family-run hotel with an occasional nightclub on the premises.The rooms are very comfortable and beautifully furnished and most have been occupied by famous people at one time or another. There is good, free parking and best to go by car or taxi as... More

This was our second visit to the Hilltop; on both occasions we were made to feel more than welcome and never rushed, despite them being really busy. Darren the proprietor is the perfect host - we had a hoot! Great food (I had the confit of duck which was excellent) and with a set menu price at £27, terrific value.

On Saturday 25th April 2015 we had the perfect wedding at the Hilltop Hotel & Restaurant. Before booking this venue we had visited other hotels, but as soon as we met Darren and saw the venue we fell in love with it. All of the stress was taken away from us as Darren organised everything, from the beautiful spring flowers... More

My sister raved about the Hilltop and especially Darren, so it was no surprise that she and her partner decided that the Hilltop was the perfect setting for their wedding. Unfortunately, due to unforseen circumstances, the wedding urgently needed to be rearranged. Darren worked miracles and with only 24hrs notice, gave my sister the most beautiful wedding. He made a...
