Our first visit to Hill Crest where we stayed for three nights, and we will return. Extremely spacious, clean and comfortable accommodation (we were in the Four Poster Room). An added bonus was the walk-in shower with straight forward, uncomplicated controls and a powerful water jet. The breakfasts were delicious, making a great start to the day, thank you, Jane.....
