The Hotel Hillock is a very impressive and impeccably clean hotel but with something of a soulless atmosphere. We found it to be quite pricey, in line with European hotels prices in fact, but were told that this is the case throughout Mount Abu, particularly at this time of year. However 250 Rs for a bottle of beer or 100Rs per hour for wifi did seem a bit steep at the time. Also, being well past the first flushes of marriage, we did get the impression that our levels of tipping didn't meet those who may be in a more excited state about life. Once again this is probably in keeping with the area than something specific to this hotel.
The restaurant was empty when we ate there and we assumed that we must be the only occupants but were told that this was "honeymoon time" with most room occupants opting for room service (and the 25% surcharge - the cost of love has gone up since my day). The food that we had was perfectly good and served with grace and efficiency.
The rooms themselves were very clean and comfortable, if slightly small, with very good bathroom tv etc. I found the large picture window separating the bedroom from the bathroom to be slightly disconcerting, but maybe this is simply a culture gap.
There were extensive facilities around the hotel including gardens, kiddies playground and pool, but we didn't take advantage of them at all.
A very comfortable hotel but lacking any real character, it is probably amongst the best in the area and worthwhile to those who can afford it.
