First off Laurette is a great host, who went out of her way to assist with a late check-in etc. She was very helpful with suggestions of where to go and what to see and experience too. My colleague had left his jacket behind after checkout and Laurette arranged everything to have it returned again. The rooms are comfy enough and have tea/coffee milk etc and a fridge. The bathroom has a shower head in the bath with an immovable plastic shield to prevent water getting everywhere when using the shower which is great but it does make things a touch difficult getting in and out of the bath. Breakfast is both hot and and cold with the usual selection. Hot breakfasts are made on order and you can decide what it is you want that morning. All in all a great place in a quiet neighbourhood with secure parking on premises.

We came to Hillcrest because of a family tragedy. Chrissy and Laurette (night and day managers) were so kind and accommodating. Our rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfasts were well done and helped us through the 3 days we were there. All the staff were friendly and helpful. There were 9 of us and 3 tiny babies. Nothing was too much for us. I highly recommend Rivendell B & B.

Whilst I cannot deny the friendly welcome and treatment, as well as the cleanliness of the room, the overall experience was disappointing. After all - the point of being away from home is to experience a comfy haven - isn’t it? The decor is old and tired and the bed whilst comfy was a double - disappointing. The room was also quite small as was the minute TV on the wall and the hot breakfast was nothing special. I just don’t believe this was a four star experience.

Last week I was a late evening walk in and the reception I received from the staff on duty was outstanding. The antique furnishings and artwork creates a lovely ambiance, my room was comfortable and spotlessly clean with all amenities in good working order. I look forward to re-visiting in the near future.
