I've been to Hillbrook before and decided to spend Mothers Day brunch here. The atmosphere was perfectly invitubg, the food was exceptional and the service, impeccable as always. One of the best places I've found in the DC metro / NoVA area. Serene, bucolic, idyllic.

My husband and I visited the Hillbrook as a surprise getaway for his birthday on June 19th. From the moment we entered the property it felt as if we had retreated into a hidden sanctuary. The long drive that leads up to the English Tudor estate is breathtaking. When you arrive you are greeted with welcome drinks and a tour... More

The menu for dinner and breakfast was not what we usually eat so we were a little skeptical. BUT OH MY GOODNESS was the food unique and delicious. We asked for seconds at breakfast the food was so good. The Chefs were personable.

My husband and I enjoyed several breakfasts and one three-course dinner at Hillbrook during our recent stay. The food was delicious, fresh and unique! Our dinner featured an apple and celery root soup, rockfish and truly unique berry dessert. Our breakfasts varied, but were always plentiful and scrumptious. The cinnamon baked apple with granola was a favorite. The atmosphere in... More

The Inn and room are really great as well as the grounds. However after we checked out we received our final bill via email and it included an undisclosed 20% tip for drinks at the bar after I had already left at 20% cash tip at the bar. Also, they charged another unannounced $ 6 tip for our breakfast. Needless... More

Food was ok and the staff was very nice but way to overpriced. The rooms were not up to standard and left a lot to be desired. Dinner at Apple bees was way better.
