The Hillcrest is a great B&B ran by a lovely couple. The room I stayed in was very nicely decorated and had probably the most comfortable bed i've stayed in! The breakfast was also excellent so I would recommend staying to anyone.

This is a really nice place to stay. We were made to feel welcome by the owners on arrival. Breakfast is excellent. The only thing I was disappointed about was the fact that the pillows were so flat and really uncomfortable, and I didn't sleep well because of this. Otherwise ok.
