    One Review of Hillside Crescent

    1. Dave Fellowes says:

      We were lucky enough to stay here for a friend’s anniversary weekend in mid November. Our party comprised 3 couples and a teenager. Right from the impressive entrance to the amazingly high ceiling heights we knew were in for a treat. This house is just fantastic and the team at Greatbase couldn’t do enough for us. My other half is allergic to feathers and it was no trouble for them to go and purchase new pillows and duvet and even remade the bed while we were out. The house is decorated in a homely style with the owners original artworks adorning the walls, the kitchen was a focal point and is beautifully equipped, the bedrooms are beautiful and we slept like a log in the comfy beds. Location wise it is very close to town with maybe a 5 minute walk to john Lewis, the Italian deli nearby was a great find too. All in all this is a fabulous home ina great location for exploring the city and we felt throughly spoiled to have stayed there. We will definitely be back!
