Guest Comments

We had a wonderful 4-night stay at Gateside Guesthouse in Hilton. We stayed in Tiny Gateside, a beautiful 2-bedroomed cottage, perfect for two adults and two children, aged 5 and 8. It had a verandah and small private garden, as well as a private entrance. Through the gate, you entered the main garden which was absolutely stunning with a swimming pool, trampoline, neat flower beds and great views. The breakfast was delicious, laundry was done daily and the staff were always friendly and attentive. Thank you for a great stay. We'll definitely be back.
- Roger Gordon

Welcoming host and the little cottage had everything we needed, including a large covered verandah to sit on and enjoy the view. Very pet friendly too. Ideal for an overnight stay or as a base for The Midlands Meander.
- Bridget Bland

Home from home ! An excellent guest house
- Christa Du Toit

Very enjoyable stay, friendly service and great breakfast.
- Sean Baldwin

Cosy, warm, clean, fresh and so organised - just what we needed for our
quick overnight stay & what beautiful views!

We would not hesitate to highly recommend your B&B to others. Thanks again
for accommodating us at the last minute.
