So cute ๐Ÿ’•

Weโ€™re getting ready to reopen on Saturday 4 July. Some changes have been made, weโ€™re opening less rooms in the house but all the cabins will be bookable.

The Breakfast Room is now closed but breakfast will be available in your room/cabin should you want to partake.

Rooms/cabins are bookable โ€œroom onlyโ€ with breakfast as an optional extra, so no need to get dressed to eat ๐Ÿ˜

Obviously our best prices can be found through booking directly with us.

We hope to see you soon.

Hi๐Ÿ‘‹

There are a lot of new people who have discovered Hillviewโ€™s page since the giveaway was launched yesterday. Here's the link if you missed it www.facebook.com/hillviewbnb/photos/a.174671869224364/3251315101560010

So thought Iโ€™d take this opportunity to introduce or reintroduce myself and my right-hand assistant, Sharon, to everyone to put a face behind the business.

Iโ€™m Jane and I fell into hospitality so that I could make my home pay for itself. Finding myself in this big bungalow on my own and not wanting to move, I wondered how I could make it pay for itself, and so came up with the idea of sharing it with others by starting a bed and breakfast to supplement my going out to work.

Eight years later, and 4 cabins later in addition to the 4 rooms in the bungalow, I no longer have to go away to work.

I really never thought that running a bed and breakfast would ever have been something that I would be doing, but here I am and loving it. The commute to work is fantastic and I get to meet lots of lovely people as well, so many guests return time and time again, they are now like family which is fantastic.

Sharon joined about 5 years ago and being a bit OCD is the perfect person to help keep this rooms and cabins spotlessly clean, especially in this challenging time.

We also undertake the general maintenance, the picture is us having on tea break on the decking outside the Fish Hut on a lovely sunny day here in Whitstable.

Hope to see you soon, stay safe in the meantime!

Two more lovely people you couldnt wish to meet. Having both stayed and worked there I can safely say it is one of the cleanest and most restful places I have ever had the pleasure of going to

We hope you are keeping well in these difficult times. Hoping to be able to stay at you BandB when we are able to get out. Having been in self isolation for 7 weeks. We miss our dog Rex who loved coming to Whistable.

Afternoon Everyone, Just a quick thank you for your likes and nominations. The winner will be announced around 6.30pm this evening, so make sure you are tuned in to find out if you are the lucky one! Have a fabulous day!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽ

I would like to nominate my niece Mel Field who has had to isolate for the whole time due to her asthma. Not an easy thing to do when you love walking your dogs.

I would like to nominate my mum Anne Hutchins who has had to cancel two cruises one with dad and one with meeeee.

Sharon Charles

I nominate Mary Papworth, my wife of 49 years, for supporting me during this 12 week lockdown, (limiting her 70th birthday celebrations,) my severe illness last year whereby I had to cancel two short holidays in Kent.

Shirley Ryan Hill

Nicole Mckenna

I nominate Jonathan Ellery he's keeping this family together under enormous strain. The pressures of it all must be constantly there, but he rarely shows that. Instead, he knuckles down and makes sure myself and our boys are ok. He's always been my hero, but never more so than now.

Rose Sayer as she has been shielding and also had her brother with her through most of lockdown so he didnt have to stay here while me and his step dad carried on as key workers

Gavin Fenton because without him I would be a miserable husk in the corner ๐Ÿ™‚
