What Our Guests Say
The Hillside House is a lovely, amenable, peaceful, and comfortable stay. My room was clean and pleasant, and the staff is friendly and attentive. I stayed at the Hillside House with a large group, each with their own rooms, and Ann, the general manager, was very accommodating. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and I would happily book again in the future.
A nice house with good management. A quick uber ride or drive to 7th in Melville.
“Dear Ann, we had a great stay at your place. Thanks a lot! you will certainly hear from us soon :-) All the best, Delphine”
