"We were efficiently and politely welcomed and offered a glass of 'Welcome Sherry'.

Our room, which had a beautiful view, was comfortable and had everything we could possibly need for our stay and we really appreciated the attention to detail.

The breakfast the next morning was delicious and was served in the main house's warm and welcoming diningroom with lovely views of the Hilton Valley.

Thank you."

"I stayed at Gateside Guesthouse recently and I absolutely loved it. I was burnt out from work and I just knew I needed to get away. I was impressed by what I saw online and so I booked the patio room (the only one available that weekend) initially for one night only but when I arrived I knew I could not bring myself to check out the next day- so I stayed another night!

The place is just spectacular. The welcome was warm, the view from the patio room is truly breath-taking- its set on a bit of a hill and overlooks the most gorgeous landscape with hills and lush green and a little water source just down from the yard. In the morning you are greeted by birds sitting on the trees just outside the room and lovely flowers on the patio. The room is well decorated, very homely, very clean and very well furnished and equipped. The whole environment is incredibly serene.

This place is a winner. Will recommend it to anyone looking for getaway from the madness of work and the world or just looking for beauty. Personally looking forward to going back!
