“Best in rothbury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

My husband and I have stayed in 3 b and bs in rothbury over the last few years and this is the best. The room was absolutely beautifully decorated and spotless. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty with local ingredients. Homemade bread gorgeous! Attentive and friendly host. Guests must like dogs though! We will definitely return!

My wife and I stayed one night at Hillcrest House at the end of May.We were met by a very friendly and convivial host, Gerry. Also on the welcoming committee were Nell, the friendly collie, and Alfie the cat. We were offered tea and home-made cake on our arrival. We had been allocated "Mrs Pringle's" room. This is an attic room but don't let the word attic put you off. The room is spacious, clean and tastefully fitted out plus tea-making facilities and TV. There is an en-suite shower room. We booked an evening meal which more than met our expectations for taste and quality. Breakfast again more than met with our expectations. We have no hesitation is awarding Gerry and Hillcrest a five-star rating.

I arrived and was immediately offered tea and homemade biscuits beside a log fire. Gerry is a very attentive and interesting host who knows Rothbury and the surrounding area extremely well. Each day started with a delicious breakfast, lots of choice, perfect porridge! My room was extremely comfortable and quiet. I have already recommended Hillcrest to friends and work colleagues.

A spotless and beautifully maintained period house. A great welcome from Gerry and then log fires, vegetarian delights, and a happy sheepdog to accompany us on walks. Superb value for money.

Room Tip: mrs pringle's room has a quiet aspect and with wonderful light.

A very comfortable and thoughtfully presented B&B - beautifully decorated with an awareness of the Georgian history of the house. The home cooking was delicious with plenty of choices for breakfast, and we had the best vegetarian three course meal we've had in a long time. Gerry was very knowledgeable about walks in the area, and gave helpful advice about which places were open to visit at that time of year. I've recommended it to all my friends.

Room Tip: We were shown the two rooms, and they were both equally attractive,well equipped and comfortable.

A lovely place to stay and very reasonable rates. Our room was beautiful - really big with a spacious en-suite. Very comfortable and Gerry was very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was delicious. The B & B is also very close to the town (Rothbury) so very convenient for riverside walks/shopping etc. Would definitely stay again!

After a long journey from the South Coast, Gerry greeted us with homemade cake and a big pot of tea. Gerry made us feel completely at home, in this relaxed, stylish, quiet little B&B. The room we stayed in was at the top of the building so it felt very private but we knew we could nip downstairs if we needed anything. The room was perfect, clean, fresh with lots of wonderful little touches to provide understated pampering and comfort. Gerry cooked us the most amazing breakfasts which my non-veggie young man still talks about, I only wish we'd had dinner there.

This little B&B is perfect for its surroundings, muddy boots and bikes are welcome which makes exploring a pleasure. I run out of superlatives. Go and try it.
