A Pity”

We first went to the Hillcrest 30 plus years ago, at that time there was a waiting list to get into the, A La Carte restaurant, the meals and the hotel was very good. Over the forthcoming years we used the restaurant occasionally and we were always impressed. We had our 25th wedding anniversary there 10 years ago and it was noticeable how the hotel had declined in both standards and popularity - we were still treated very well and had a great time. On this last occasion, we stayed for one night with our daughter who was in a different room. Again the staff treated us very well but the hotel looks gloomy and in an unloved state of repair. It appears to lack investment and imagination, we both thought it was a shame. We dined at the The Tavern and on another night at Pesto for our evening meal, quite simply because the Hillcrest restaurant looks and is old fashioned in style and food choices. We are sorry to leave the review because we fondly remember this hotel from our past.

Disappointing stay”

Staff did the bare minimum, including cleaning staff. The room was tidy, but had not been cleaned properly for a while as evident by party confetti on the carpet and streaks of grime under the tap and on shower walls. Shower itself temperamental. The room was extremely hot- luckily a fan was available on request. The breakfast was nice but pricey, but bar food utterly basic. Rather disappointed with my stay, would expect higher standard for price paid.

The shower didn’t work when trying to change from bath to shower. The tap on the sink didn’t produce cold water, just lukewarm. No toiletries provided. One towel for two staying guests. We just dealt with it. But when complaining at checkout, the reception lady did nothing to appease.. was more focussed on the computer
