Spent 3 lovely nights in the Hillgrove In Aug 13, we were on the 4th floor, the room was lovely quite spacious, I like a big room, so I was delighted, Breakfast was lovely also kids had lots to choose from, they are quite independent so everything at the cold buffet was within their reach, dinner was fab too in the bar and the restaurant.. The kids club is a great asset, its very much structured rather than children in a room running around, eg there was sports, quizzes, twister, wii time, movie time, the kids club staff were fab, there is a outside playground also, the pool was lovely too, the club keep the amount of persons that enter the pool to a limit as not too overcrowd it, which I though was excellent, so while you are waiting you can get yourself a little cuppa, the staff in the hotel were lovely, and the service was very good, so I would recommend a wee trip to the Hillgrove, we took a day trip tp Tayto park it was only 1hr 20mins drive , so very handy that way, I will certainly return to the Hillgrove..

Excellent hotel, staff on the reception and the duty manager of the night could not have been more friendly, nothing was too much bother and the personal touch from reception staff was warming, remembering kids by name the next day. A very family friendly hotel, would definitely stay again

Went to the Hillgrove in July 13 for our holidays with our 2 young children. We had a marvellous time, the hotel is really trendy, love the outside with the lights and the fountain, the inside was also very nice.

The staff were absolutely amazing and so friendly, nicest hotel stay we have had. Great kids programme as well, food very reasonable and really nice. Pool and spa lovely. I cannot wait to be back sometime in the future.

Just back from a fantastic two night stay in the Hillgrove Hotel. This was my second visit to the Hotel and I will definately be back again. The hotel grounds and reception are very funky with lovely colours and quirky decorations. The rooms were clean and functional. Beds very comfortable. The breakfast each morning was delicious. We also ate in the Hotel Bar on one evening. The service there was very friendly and efficient and the food was yummy and affordable. The swimming pool is great and not overcrowded, although it would be nice to have it open later in the evening for kids. The kids playground is a welcome bonus, safe and fun. The staff at the hotel were amazing throughout our visit, very friendly and helpful.

Dear Forty40
Many thanks for your excellent comments and we are delighted that you appreciated our modern funky design and our food. So glad to hear that your kids had such a great time. A few people have mentioned our early pool closing time on a Sunday and because of this, we have decided to review our opening hours on a Sunday during peak season. Looking forward to welcoming you back to the Hillgrove Hotel Leisure & Spa again very soon.
