the Hillbark is an enigma. Lovely black and white building, Bentley outside, door handle missing from the front door sums up the experience. I booked a junior suite requesting a good view. We were allocated a room with three small windows in the bedroom 6 feet up the wall and a bathroom with only a shower - apparently only suites have bath. The staff handled the problem well, upgrading us to a suite which had a lovely view. The meal in the Yellow Room on the first night was good with the exception of the desserts which, like many restaurants, were a disappointment - the chocolate souffle was very sweet accompanied by an even sweeter merangue concoction. The manager and his staff were really good, helpful and attentive. The meal in the Grill on the second night was plain and OK, no more. The hotel has some nice touches such as the complimentary tea and coffee but misses the mark in a number of areas, no bathrobes, the tea tray was not removed till the next day, the turn down service never materialised.
The development of the hotel is a work in progress, perhaps these omissions and the door handle will be sorted during the year. At the moment it is expensive for what you get

An excellent experience. We arrived at this beautiful black and white building and was greated by Sarah who showed us arround the hotel and checked us into our bedroom. The room had 2 plasma screen tv's, one in the bathroom with a jacuzzi bathfor 2 !!!!! The bed was so comfortable we could not believe it. That night we dined in the Yellow Room Restaurant which gave us the best food, wine and service we had ever had during the three hour experence. Then we retired to our wonderful bedroom.
We had breakfast the following morning which again was excellent. Then we walked arround the grounds to help walk off all the food and wine from the previous night.
James the manager and all the staff were very attentive with nothing being too much trouble. The atmosphere was frendly and relaxed worth every penny.
You must go.
