“Cosy Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We stayed at Hillside with friends two nights ago. Tony and Jill are fabulous hosts and it was so good to be greeted with a pot of tea and a slice of just out of the oven delectable banana cake. Hillside is warm and cosy. The bedrooms with ensuite showers are perfect as was breakfast. Within easy walking distance of Smoo Cave. Don't forget to taste the chocolates in your bedroom made by Cocoa Mountain in nearby Balnakeil - they are truly the best and it is a lovely touch to be able to taste before you go and buy. Just wish we had not left the tasting until we got home!! Thank you Tony and Jill - you are doing a brilliant job and provide great value. Come and see us soon.

We found Hillside from TripAdvisor and stayed one night. It is an excellent B&B and great value. We had a large room with comfy twin beds, a huge wardrobe and large chest of drawers. There is no TV in the room, but a huge residents' lounge with TV and sofas. There is free wi-fi and loads of tea, coffee, biscuits etc in the room. There was a super ensuite shower room with a big shower enclosure. Jill and Tony are excellent hosts. A great breakfast is served at a single large table so you can easily chat to fellow guests. The property has lots of off-street parking and is a very short drive from Smoo Caves and Durness village.

A far too brief but very comfortable stay with Tony, Jill and Ellie at Hillside B&B. We received a wonderful welcome after a long drive, a huge pot of tea and tasty banana cake. After an enjoyable evening stroll with lots of fresh air, we slept easily in our very comfortable twin room. Breakfast was fantastic and we enjoyed the company of our fellow guests before setting off to the very nearby smoo cave and walk. Thanks so much, we only wish it wasn't such a fleeting visit. Jeff and Linda.

We stayed her for just the one night on our tour of the Highlands.Tony gave us a warm welcome and Jill was freindly and chatty too !
Our room was clean, modern and comfortable.There is no tv in the room, but having the use of the spacious living and dining room meant this was not a problem.
We ate our evening meal, which was very good, at the Smoo Cave Hotel - a 2 minute drive.A nice friendly bunch there also.
Breakfast in the morning was good and plentiful.
Recommended.

Hillside bnb is so lovely. Hosts are so nice and their daughter is cute. This place is so cozy and comfort. Rooms are clean and nice. Bathrooms are lovely (wish that I have same). Breakfast was delicious. I feel like im home or sleepovers on my cousins or something.

Location is pretty good and landscape is awesome. Dont stay here because you are in Durness, stay Durness so you can be here!
