On this occasion two of us had a very nice meal in the Bar area, served by very helpful staff. Adequate portions served hot enough and in high quality fashion, even though there were two weddings on the same time

Myself and my OH stayed here in June. I paid extra for a Bridal Suite and it did not disappoint. The bath and large shower where to die for! Breakfast was beautiful as was the evening meal which was included in the price. Also made use of the pool and outdoor hot tub. I will definately come and stay again!

We stayed at the Hillgrove as wedding guests. The hotel was very with several other weddings that weekend but everything was spread out enough for us not to really notice. The staff were excellent and the entrance lobby, restaurant, bar and function rooms were all presented beautifully. Our room was a little basic but adequate for a 2 night stay.
