This place is amazing! We stayed for a few nights in the India room which was clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The couple who run the b&b were so nice and welcoming from the start and were keen to help us in any way they could. Would totally recommend this place to anyone :)

I stayed in the Tuscany room which was just perfect - really spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable and I got a good nights sleep. Finally, breakfast was...

From the moment I arrived at The Hillcroft, the thoughtfulness and care that owners, Martyn and Elaine, put into their hotel is evident. My room was delightfully comfortable (Bali) aesthetically soothing, and Martyn and Elaine couldn't be more helpful in providing me with tips and info to make the most of my stay. The following morning, their home-made breakfast was...

We stayed in Lombok on the ground floor. The room was beautiful, spacious and bright. The bed was really comfy and we had a lovely en-suite with roll-top bath. Elaine and Martin made us feel really comfortable and catered for all of our needs. The breakfast was excellent too. We didn't want to leave!

We stayed in the top floor suite, it was very spacious, large bedroom, comfy bed, tea and coffee facilities. The additional lounge area was great and bathroom was nice. The owners were friendly and welcoming and full of useful local information. The breakfast was one of the best with a great choice of options all freshly cooked.
