We recently stayed 3 nights in this lovely hotel. The decor was clean and bright - painted white throughout with stylish Scandinavian furniture and the most amazing selection of original works of modern art. Our room was bright and welcoming. The food was delicious with produce from the hotels own vegetable garden. All in all we were made very welcome...

Had a warm welcome to this recently renovated and comfortable hotel. Sitting rooms with comfortable chairs were available, and our host was genuinely warm and helpful. Had an excellent individually cooked breakfast. We will definitely be returning on our next trip to the Isle of Wight!

We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend Hillside. The building is lovely from the outside. (Thatched roof). Its bright and spacious inside. The dining room looks out through the conservatory to the garden and the view to the sea beyond and was lovely on sunny mornings that we had. Bedrooms were comfortable. Good quality bed and duvet. bathroom...

Hillside sets itself out as a boutique hotel and is indeed a lovely building, beautifully furnished and with interesting art works. But it just didn't have the right feel for us. The little touches that make a stay special were missing. no cup of tea on arrival, not having tea making facilities in the rooms. Only being able to have...

Original choice was fully booked and so we came across this little gem. We were not disappointed. Setting idyllic, hospitality was perfect, management attending to our every need and the food was 5 star. Breakfast was full and hearty and the evening meal was absolutely delicious. Our room was clean, stylish and overlooked the sea. Just lovely. So pleased our...

We stayed here for a two night 'treat ourselves' break and just didn't want to leave. Very relaxing outdoor and indoor areas. Service and food wonderful with ultra friendly owners. Would recommend without hesitation! It is on a steep hill so if mobility is a problem it won't necessarily be for you (although you could spend a day just relaxing...

This is almost certainly the best hotel on the Isle of Wight. It is beautifully presented, very stylish, demonstrates great taste, the staff are lovely and a huge amount of effort has been put in to make this a really first class place to stay..... However, I will never be going back..... Why... read on... Its really simple, and this,...

Potentially very good with a fine location and stylish decor, but some shortcomings leading to a lower score. Our room was rather small, and (on a warm but not exceptionally hot English summer night) stuffy and airless even with the window fully open, so sleeping was difficult. Had a confirmed reservation for their restaurant only to be phoned two days...
