Stylish and self-contained B&B a short stroll from town, and only 2 minutes from Bellingen's monthly community markets. Geared towards making a romantic weekend or a relaxing break just that little bit more special.
Hilary's place was lovely. Clean, modern and with beautiful outlook. Everything that we needed was there with a few extra special touches. The only downside was that, because it's under the main home, there's quite a bit of noise (footsteps and talking). Other than that it was great. Hilary even let us check out late, which was appreciated.
Hilary's unit was very comfortable. It is underneath her home so you walk around the house through a landscaped garden to get to it. You enter via a sliding door off a small deck, into a sitting room with a large TV. Off this is a double bedroom (which opens to another small deck and outside sitting area) which has a small bedroom off it. Back in the sitting room, steps go up to a door into Hilary's home. Half way up there is a short corridor to the left which leads into the kitchen and then the bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped, with a plug-in hotplate, electric frypan, toaster, kettle, microwave, fridge, utensils, cooking & salad oils, salt & pepper, etc. The bed is comfortable, more-so than our bed at home. There was plenty of hanging and drawer space. It was very hot while we were in Bellingen for our week's stay - over 38 C (100 F) the last couple of days. Hilary had provided a pedestal fan in the bedroom which helped us sleep.
Hilary is a delight to deal with. She responds quickly & accurately to any requests & is just a lovely person. The apartment is even better than the pictures with a spotless presentation & views over the Dorrigo Plateau to die for ! We can recommend Hil's Place absolutely without reservations. Loved it !
