“Lovely location”
Reviewed August 17, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Lovely location only a short 5 minute walk to the town centre shops, pubs, restaurants and the castle.
Children loved crabbing on the pier ( caught 14 crabs in a few attempts ).
The cottage is located close to a free parking section on the road and it was easy to find a parking space. If you are staying within the town you won't need your car once parked.
The owner Wendy is a very nice person who is accessible for any requests or information you may require.
Enjoyable holiday with our grandchildren.

“So many thoughtful touches”
Reviewed July 2, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Hillcrest is a terraced cottage, perfectly located in Beaumaris, near to sea, shops and eating places. The cottage is dog friendly, they even get a basket of goodies and treats! The small sunny back yard is lovely for sitting out with a drink or coffee. The owners have obviously tried hard to make it welcoming, and we appreciated that. Toiletries were provided which is unusual. We also got fresh eggs from owners chickens, a bottle of wine, a lovely cheese pack and home made jam - far above our expectations.

The floors are wood throughout and as my husband walks with a stick we were a little nervous of the stairs but I am sure it would not be an issue for other holiday makers. I would recommend this cottage.

“Solid and could easily be excellent with a modest revamp”
Reviewed April 15, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Hillcrest is 'Good' - better than 'average' but not 'very good'. TripAdvisor doesn't seem have a star rating for that, so we felt it fairer to grade as 4*.

Plus points - good location, pre arrival information clear, relatively spacious, decent bed, linen and towels.

Minus points - I don't know if we the first visitors for a while but it could have a done with a spring clean - quite a few dust webs and the outdoor area was a bit unkempt with a few stray cigarette butts which seemed to have missed the intended plant pot.

We would have found a few more (beer) glasses useful, along with salad bowl, and some tongues for grilled food.


In summary, the decor is traditional and if truthful could do with a bit of freshen up in the near future. But on the whole it offers decent value for money and we'd consider using it again.

"Thank you for the 4 stars.

We are sorry you were a bit disappointed though and very sorry you didn’t let us know there were things which would have made your stay better while you were there as we would have been delighted to bring you the items you felt were missing.

Although there was a bowl and a couple of pint beer glasses already we have added some more as we always respond to guest requests very quickly. There are some tongs though so puzzled by that query? We live a couple of miles from the cottage and we are happy to pop over to explain how something works or bring something extra. Once we brought a Vax cleaner for guests whose car was flooded! ....

We are proud of offering a good service (many guests have commented very favourably on this in the past) and our comprehensive Welcome pack (which we are extremely proud of – we hope you enjoyed it!) includes a note in which in the second sentence we ask you to please ring us if you have any queries or needs.

We have a lovely cleaner who is so fastidious she would be upset to hear about missed cobwebs –after a thorough check I couldn’t find any so If you cleaned them for us thank you very much.

We do try hard to offer value for money – and our year round bookings with many repeats seem to reflect that people appreciate this - so maybe as you say you would come again we will have another opportunity to show how important it is to us to give our guests a good experience at Hillcrest!

Best wishes

Wendy and Roger"

“Everything you could need!”
Reviewed February 26, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I recently stayed at Hillcrest with a good friend for a long weekend away. We found the cottage cosy and warm, so important if you are booking a holiday home in the winter months. The owner had set the heating up to allow the cottage to remain warm, plus logs and coal were provided to light the fire.

As others have mentioned, a generous welcome awaits with lots of goodies and essentials ready when you arrive. The house is a relaxing place to chill out (and get a good night's sleep) thanks to comfy beds and sofas. Beyond the doorstep everything is a short walk away, including cafes, restaurants, pubs and local shops. Even the castle is a very short stroll and the view of the mountains as you walk down the street is a constant reminder of the natural beauty of the area. Parking wasn't a problem while we were there and each night we managed to get parked within a hundred yards of the property. Clear instructions are provided for accessing the property and it was easy to lock up on our departure day. The patio at the back looked perfect for sitting out in warmer weather - something we hope to do when we return!

Many thanks to Wendy and Roger for the use of your beautiful holiday cottage. This is a great holiday home in a beautiful part of Wales!

“Homely and Charming”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a lovely short stay at Hillcrest. It's very homely and has all the equipment and facilities for a really pleasant trip - the weather meant we had the opportunity to enjoy both the small garden and the wood burning stove and we really enjoyed our welcome hamper. All communication prior and during our trip made sure that our arrival and stay was as hassle free as possible.

The cottage is located right in the heart of town, making it a great base to explore Beaumaris and further afield.
