I was visiting friends in the area and this hotel was highly recommended. Getting directions, I thought it was 'in the middle of nowhere' - but judging from the full parking lot and clientele, it was obviously a well known and well liked establishment. And it is set in a beautiful countryside setting. From the start I received a hearty... More

Daren is a wonderful host and nothing is too much trouble for him and his staff. The roaring fire is a welcome in itself. We actually slept here in one of the cosy bedrooms (before we had just had meals in the restaurant) It was terrible weather outside but warm and friendly inside. Surprisingly quiet in the room and lots... More

I can't imagine how I have not heard of this place - it is lovely for birthday parties etc. Very slick service with the most attentive host, constantly checking all is ok. eg Do you have enough wine, gravy, coffee etc. Smashing formula that works.

What a little gem this hotel is. Absolutely stunning, the rooms are beautiful, mine had a high vaulted ceiling and the bed was extremely comfortable. Darren, the owner and host was lovely and went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be. Highly recommend, will definitely be back

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
