“Warm, welcoming and wonderful”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Iris and Ernie welcomed my husband, mother and myself to their lovely home on June 16. They went out of their way to make sure all of us were comfortable, but especially my mum, giving her a ground floor room. We had a wonderful recommendation for dinner, the Halfway House, and slept very well in the beautiful bedrooms. Breakfast was enormous and delicious and, when we had trouble with our sat-nav charger, she sent her son out to help us. The story doesn't end there, when we left my husband's jacket upstairs Iris offered to post it back to the UK for us. She even checked when we would be back at home so it wasn't waiting at the Post Office. Seriously, why would anyone stay anywhere else? This is the best bed and breakfast ever, Thank you Iris and Ernie. Colette, Lisa and Grant

Hilltop Lodge is an excellent B and B in Banbridge NI, the quality of the finishes, breakfast and view are outstanding. Breakfast is a delight and the proprietors make this venue excellent value for money.

We stayed here in August 2012 with my 5 month old daughter. Beautiful ensuite room. Amazing breakfast. Friendly and supportive owners. Fantastic views across the country side and lovely sitting room to relax in at night time. We had an amazing stay.

A superb bed and breakfast and Ernie and Iris are wonderful hosts, nothing is too much trouble. They provided details for local travel, did Internet searches etc for us and made us and our friends from Canada feel very welcome. The rooms are spacious, spotless and have amazing en-suite wet rooms. The breakfasts are so filling, freshly cooked to order and keep you full for the day. Will definitely go back if in that area.

Hello,
We would like to thank you for the recent review of Hilltop Lodge. It's not only a boost to the business but also for our moral as well. It was good that within the few days you stayed you were able to take your friends to different places and catch up with other friends also.
As it was your second visit we felt completely comfortable with you and very soon the same with your two friends.
We wish you all the best for 2013 and hope to see you in the not too distant future,

Hilltop Lodge

You here some horror story's when it comes to B&B's and also some "it was ok for a B&B", but this is why I'm writing. From the minute I booked you could feel the friendly and caring attitude of both Iris & Ernie... I stay in Hotels with my job almost every week, so I class myself as a seasoned traveller. Hilltop lodge will go to the top of my list, I honestly couldn't fault it, from the Irish breakfast cooked by Ernie which I decided on the content from a Menu having everything I wanted to the pleasant hospitality and conversation of Iris. My room was light and cosy, underfloor heating is a nice touch as is the rain head walk in shower... Honestly if you are looking for a base to work from Hilltop is your only choice, and if you want a Family holiday that will show you the gorgeous Ireland then Hilltop is again the choice.. I will be taking my Family there in the new year...... Beautiful place....beautiful people......thank you..

An excellent experience.The ensuite bedroom was excellent very spacious and spotless, as was the rest of the house. Iris and Ernie are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble.The views are exceptional (when there is no mist) and it is hard to believe you can see five counties.
