Haggards Hilldrop was a great place to stay, I would recommend it to anyone traveling weather it be business or personal it is very family friendly as well. The staff is very helpful and welcoming and so is the owner.

I had a pleasant stay at Haggards on Hilldrop. The room was clean, breakfast was very nice. The only thing that I really missed was a fridge in the room. It was hot and I could not keep my water cold.
