We booked number one port hill as it seemed an unusual, quirky B&B and it certainly lived up to our expectations. The owner was very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The room was comfortable with several added treats including fresh roses which was a lovely touch. A very chilled out big breakfast finished our stay. Highly recommended as... More

When you see photos of a hotel on a website you seldom find that they reflect reality. In the case of Number One Port Hill, the reality exceeds expectation. This is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Annie is an excellent host and it was a real pleasure to spend a few days in her beautiful Georgian home.... More

I organised a surprise night away for my husband on our wedding anniversary and it was truly a wonderful experience. The small room was lovely!

Breakfast was wonderful a real treat and we really... More
