“Truley lovely stay”

Reviewed 13 May 2017

We had a lovely stay at Bobs cottage. Both him and his wife were very friendly and lovely people. The cottage was comfortable, clean and is on beautiful grounds. We had my three year old grandaughter with us and Bob including her in helping with the horses which she thoroughly enjoyed. The cottage was a perfect location for us as we were only a 20 minute drive from Belfast where my son lives. We will definitely be booking again and couldnt recommend it higher.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Look forward to seeing you again. Regards Bob and Norma

“Pleasant cottage, good views, requires some updating.”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2013

Spent a week at this cottage visiting family over the Christmas period 2013. Met by the owner on the first day and given a tour etc. Thankfully the owner had put the central heating on it was cold and windy outside and was very welcome. It was explained that the heating was set for all day and only went off at night after 11pm. We were also advised that the thermostat was faulty all I can say to this was that as the thermostat could not be altered it was either uncomfortably or freezing if it was turned off and nothing in between. Clearly this is an issue that needs sorting and should have been sorted before arrival. The cleanliness of the cottage on the whole was ok although there was a lack of attention to detail hairs on toilets and in bath etc and some general dust etc. With the exception of the washing machine which was clearly new the kitchen appliances/utensils could do with some updating. Also we did have some issues with the electric showers re temp, boiling hot at times could be an issue iparticularly if used by younger users. The mattresses on the beds upstairs were uncomfortable again it's suggested some updating is required. Bearing in mind it was Christmas and it just so happened that on a couple of days it was some of the worst storms/gales to hit the UK and this location for many years apart from one further contact orchestrated by me an enquiry re bins the owner made no further contact not to wish seasons greetings or to check that everything was ok after the storms we did find this surprising particularly after some previous reviews. Most of the review has been negative thus far however on a positive side the cottage it self was really quaint with unusual features and windows. The views of Belfast Lough and Carrickfergus were stunning particularly at night. The location was ok although would be an issue in snow. All in all it served our purpose in terms of location.

Owner's reply: I must apologise for the heating thermostat in the cottage not working. Unfortunately we were not able to get an electrician over the Christmas period. Regarding updating, the washer/dryer, fridge freezer, cooking pans, cutlery and stair carpet are all new this year. In addition the downstairs bedroom was completely refurnished in quality solid oak. The twin room will be updated this year. Our cottage is assessed every year by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and our 4 star grading was confirmed in August. Regarding the electric showers the temperature needs to be set before you get into the shower. Regarding the lack of contact,it was winter with short days. It was also Christmas and your family and my family were busy doing what one does at Christmas so we were both not there a lot. The cottage is close to our house and you will recall I did say when showing you around the cottage not to hesitate to call us if you needed anything. In our years of renting our cottage we have found that you have to be careful not to be intrusive of guests privacy so there is a fine line to walk. We try to get it right and hope we generally do. We hope you will stay with us again in the future

A clean, well appointed, warm and comfortable cottage. Exactly as described. Friendly and welcoming owner. Lovely location. Book with confidence

Owner's reply: We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our cottage and your short holiday in Northern Ireland. Hope to see you again. Best wishes Norma and Bob

“Comfortable, clean & friendly like our own home.”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2013

We strongly recommend Hillcrest Cottage. It is centrally located and served us as a base while touring Ulster. It is easy to access & the roads are excellent. We slept extremely well - probably due to the sound-deafening effect of the 24" thick walls. Norma & Bob are friendly & helpful hosts - even going as far as to supply a son-in-law to help dig us out when we became stuck in the snow dumped by the worst weather system in 75 years. Our daughter & family stayed at Hillcrest Cottage in 2010 and strongly echo our sentiments. The high quality is the same now as then. We wish Norma, Bob & their family success for many years to come. Thank you for looking after us.

Owner's reply: Hello Sam and Bonnie, thank you for your review. Sorry about the weather but glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you in the future. Norma and Bob
