“another lovely stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

II have not long returned from my second visit to Dartmouth and have to say what a pleasant time I had there, some of which was down to the accommodation and service offered by the lovely people who own it, Jonathan and Suzanne. They can never do too much to help. On my last day Jonathan even drove me and my luggage up the hill to my sister's home! The breakfasts were quite phenomenal; so delicious I had to try everything and struggled back to my room - in a 'GOOD WAY'. I'm not one for leaving my home but when the room drifted back into my mind the following day it came as a warm and pleasant memory. It truly feels like HOME FROM HOME.

Room Tip: Always travel alone so always have the only SINGLE room but I imagine all the rooms are just as good...

My wife and I stayed here overnight and were very comfortable. A Victorian terrace house it has character and, a big plus, a visitors' lounge and (limited) parking. The owner, Jonathon Hammond was extremely helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast was lovely. I would certainly recommend Hill House for those who (a) don't mind stairs and (b) are happy with a 10 minute walk (downhill) into the centre of Dartmouth

Room Tip: Bedrooms are over 2 floors, but the location is quiet and road noise is minimal

What a lovely stay we had here as Jonathan is a superb host. Its often the little things that make such a difference.
Things like ground coffee and chilled fresh milk in the bedroom. Breakfast is a delight! Try the granola and fresh fruit combo - perfect!
Many thanks to a very welcoming host!

We have returned to this great B&B three times over the past three years. Suzanne and Jonathan make you feel so welcome as soon as you arrive. The rooms have been designed without any clutter and they have thought of everything to help make your stay very comfortable. The soap/shampoo dispensers together with the fresh milk in the mini fridge makes that stay even more comfortable!!! Would certainly recommend.

We stayed two nights during August 2013. Our first time ever in Dartmouth.
Jonathan is a perfect host. He pays great attention to details, and he is always ready to provide information and suggestions for a pleasant stay in Dartmouth. He is very open minded and keen to share points of view, opinions and daily life aspects with people from different cultures.
The first evening he gave us a lift with his car to the suggested restaurant on the harbour.
The breakfast is superlative, the best we had during our holidays in Devon and Cornwall.
Parking is difficult but Jonathan will help you with it as well.
If back to Dartmouth, we will definitely go back to Hill View House!

Room Tip: Once booking ask for bedroom one.

This was our first stay in Dartmouth, just one night, but we will return and stay here again. Jonathan is an attentive host, who pays infinite attention to detail. Nothing to fault, everything provided for our comfort, including chairs with a window view, lots of lights in the right places, and plenty of storage - wardrobe with lots of (matching!) hangers and two bedside cabinets to make a longer stay practical too. No cooked breakfast, but a delicious elaborate continental with fabulous fruit salad, yoghourt, home made meusli, plus all other cereals/porrige, toast and hot croissants, cheese, ham etc. Hill View House is a 10 minute walk to the town centre, and although parking is tight, Jonathan has it all sorted and makes it easy to leave the car and explore on foot. The walk to town centre involves a short, medium-steep hill, but mostly on the flat, and anyway there are buses back up if necessary. Being on a hill, inevitably the house has several floors and lots of stairs but it makes for striking views. We found the road quiet at night, even in mid-August. There was no sign of all the little niggling things which often seem to get overlooked in the big chains and we put this down to the live-in host/proprietor.

This was first stay here: we were very pleased with it and would happily return. We stayed 4 nights (for which a discount is offered) so were pleased to find there was plenty of luggage and wardrobe space.
Jonathan provides a continental-style breakfast: everything is made to order and there's a very good choice including cereals, porridge, home-made fresh fruit salad, yoghurt and hot croissants with cheese/ham/jam. There was a private guests' lounge.
It's in a quiet location within easy walking distance of the town-centre and the beautiful river-front. There is limited private off-street parking at the back which Jonathan was most helpful with, or there was an alternative available nearby though we didn't need it.

We would happily recommend it.
