Hillcrest House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 6 Waterloo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 May 2011

I stayed for three nights at this B&B in May 2011 and it exceeded my expectations. The room was huge; the hosts extremely friendly and accommodating; the food delicious and nicely presented; free wireless high speed Internet; and the atmosphere delightful. Each day I found that I was looking forward to coming back to Hillcrest House and to enjoying my time there. This was such a sharp contrast with other professionals who attended the same conference but stayed at hotels and who complained about various things, whereas I had only good things to say about my accommodations including the hosts. The one area for improvement that I recommended was that carpet be put on the stairs so that there isn't so much noise when guests go up and down. This woke me up several times even though I'm a deep sleeper. Every aspect of the rest of the stay was so enjoyable -- they make you feel so special! -- that I have already told others to visit Waterloo just so that they get the experience of staying at Hillcrest House.

Room Tip: Try to sleep in a bed away from the stairs

What makes a place worth staying for almost a month? It's the caring and thoughtfulness of Wendy and Stefan at the Hillcrest B&B. Our stay, that was only to be a week tops, ended being over 3 weeks. Through it all, Stefan and Wendy did everything they could to make our stay warm, welcome and comfortable. Breakfast was always top notch, and the occasional dinner with wine/beer and yummy desserts was an added treat. Stefan a massage therapist and Wendy a former pastry chef was the shining light that made a stressful month in Waterloo truely easier.
Our daughter attending Waterloo U spent more time than we did at Hillcrest and our hosts ensured she was safe and well fed. Our room the Bean Retreat easily provided room enough for my husband, myself and our daughter including a study area.
I would highly recommend Hillcrest House Bed & Breakfast, and hope to spend time with Stefan and Wendy again.

Had a wonderful evening with Stefan, while he prepared one course after another. Such energy and passion - Prost! Gazing at the supermoon while hot-tubbing afterwards was certainly a bonus. Of course, the breakfast was delicious and generous. Wendy's tea-cup collection in the grand dinning room was precious. Such gracious hosts and what a beautiful home.

Attended Stefan's cookery evening as a Valentine's Day treat. What can we say, seven courses of pure indulgance, gorgeous food with cookies and recipes to take home !! Unbelieveable hosts, who clearly love entertaining guests at Hillcrest House, where nothing is too much hassle, with everything done with a smile. Would recommend to all, an exceptional place to spend time and to be pampered rotten !! Can't wait for our return visit, but must make room first Stefan !!

A wonderful place to stay and experience. Foremost the service and comfort offered by the owners makes you feel immediately "at home" here. Stefan and Wendy are exceptional hosts who love what they do, which is immediately evident in the care for their guests. The rooms are simply beautiful and offer a luxurious getaway with private washrooms for each room and all the comforts of home. The home itself is a beautiful century old Victorian home which is emphasized throughout. Also worthwhile noting was the exceptional cooking by both Stefan and Wendy. Our stay included an evening of cooking lessons by Stefan that was both unique and practical and most of all delicious! Wendy's morning breakfast and baking treats were a delicious and filling start to the day. All in all this was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be returning to Hillcrest House.
