Enjoyed our weekend at the Hillcrest Guest House. Great location, only a short walk into the city. Staff was very friendly, food delicious. Bedroom clean, warm and very quiet bed was very comfortable.

After much deliberation we decided to book the Hillcrest, and so glad we did. Well located only a short walk to the centre and attractions such as the train museum which... More

We had a very warm welcome from Lena...she's cooks a great breakfast in the morning!! She recommended some good places to eat and visit too. Our room was clean and tidy and the free parking at the back of the guest house was great too.

Owner lovely and very helpful, breakfast delicious and location great. Our room needed a lick of paint and extra pillows and our friends' was way too warm 'cos the window didn't open and no air conditioning. Overall it did what we needed it to do and I would recommend it for a weekend away.

We stayed overnight in May, the place wasn't busy but we were given a very small, cold room, nowhere to put our suitcases (we were on route to holiday abroad) the host was very pleasant on arrival but going down for breakfast 30 mins before time stated for breakfast to finish, she was quite rude, got the feeling she didn't...
