                Good location, efficient staff and welcoming.

                Could do with a refurbishment as carpet slightly shabby and bedspread had been stitched where it had previously torn.

                Staff friendly and breakfast good

                Dissapointed that the twin room was infact a single with 2 beds in. Only catered for 1 person in the bathroom with only 1 x complimentary soap/shower gel etc.

                Handy for the location, mind you there's only two hotels in the whole town, so not a huge choice.

                There was a weird buzz coming from the wall right at the back of the headboard, making it impossible to sleep. Also, at about 7 a.m. a noise literally like a motorbike engine started through the outside wall - heating, an extractor, what was it? But very very loud. TV on the wall, not in front of the bed, but at 90 degrees to the headboard - comfortable for about 5 minutes. The bar used to be heaving on a Friday night. There was literally nobody in there last Friday apart from me and the barman. I stayed here on my wedding night in 1988; regrettably, rather like my marriage, the Hillcrest has reached the end of the road.

                Hotel needs a bit of updating...

                The meals were perfect, breakfast and dinner too. Single room small, but comfortable with all important equipment. The hotel personnel always carry about our pleasant stay.

                I left very soon in the morning to catch the flight (4.30 am) and the guy at reception could not provide me the invoice with the complete address (only guest name was presented). I was a little bit disappointed, as I asked the afternoon before if I am to pay in advance because of my early morning departure.

              • Group of friends
                3.2

                Bar staff went missing when drinks where required, the travel lodge is £20per night cheaper and better decor in the room, the window to our room looked out onto a flat roof that housed the air conditioning units and one was right outside my window starting up during the night, the shower was broken.

                We booked this room for our honeymoon and where totally dissapointed, staff where very unhelpful at showing us to our room. The honeymoon suite was dated and other than the fact it had a four poster bed was no different to any other room in the hotel, there was a broken jacuzzi in the bathroom that couldn't be used. The girl serving breakfast appeared to not have much of a clue about what to do, we where left standing around waiting to be told where we where to sit and whether to serve ourselves or wait to be served, We where absolutley disgusted as this hotel does not come cheap. Would not reccomend for honeymooners.

                Friendly & helpful, easy access by car.

                Lack of road signs on the minor roads in the area. Would prefer a thermostatic valve on the shower but it worked fine as it was.

                Location, staff who were first class and a welcoming friendly atmosphere.

                have stayed quite a few times over the years hotel is lovely rooms are spotless

                food is not up to standard anymore last meal i had there was cold

              • Single
                6.6

                Comfy bed and friendly staff.

                Shower was awful, couldnt get the temperature right and the water pressure was non existent. Breakfast was served cold.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                The staff were excellent and the hotel was clean. It was good value for money. Generally the food was good. The room was very large and the hotel was very quiet (we stayed on a Tuesday)

                We chose this because we had a dog but on arrival found that dogs are not allowed in the bar or anywhere other than your room so we had to leave her in the car whilst we had dinner. The bed was not comfortable and the hotel is generally tired although they do appear to be painting (there were wet paint signs up). Booking. com says italian food which it was not. The sausage at breakfast was of poor quality and there were no vegetables with dinner.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                The manner and friendliness of the staff.

                The room was rather small and the decor somewhat tired..Had my arrival coincided with the disco I would have been disconcerted by people dancing in the foyer

                nice and clean good value, hotel, would stay again.
