"Fantastic Spot! "

I've stayed in the Hillgrove a number of times now and the welcome and service seems to get better every time! There's nearly too much to choose from on the bar menu and the restaurant is great value. Bedrooms are bright and airy and last time we had one of their newly renovated rooms - very lush! Within a couple of minutes walk to town. Me thinks another visit pretty soon is in order :-)
