Host Review Score

Andy & Nic Passfield
Hillcrest is an imposing Victorian villa set on the southerly edge of Scotland's Booktown. Since opening as a guest house in 2003, we have continued to update and renovate in a style in keeping with the age of the house - don't expect ultra modern interiors, but do expect modern facilities, comfort and decor in keeping with a house this age and style.
Lovely views over the Solway and the Galloway Hills, nearby beaches, forests, Dark Sky Park with wonderful night skies, castles, history, chocolate making, tank driving, human catapulting, second longest zipwire in Europe, sailing, wobbly water park, and lots of bookshops! Something for everyone in wonderful Galloway.
