INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 March 2017

I came across this great place some years ago, when I was in Sevilla and wanted to revisit Faro. Now, I think that I owe it to Robin and Fiona, the proprietors, to share the secrets of their guesthouse with others. I hope that this does not mean that I will not get a booking again! I have been going...

We spent 4 nights at the end of our Portugal trip here and loved it! It was a bit tricky to find, but once we got the coordinates right into our rental car's navigational system, no problem. Fiona and Robin were perfect hosts and provided us with fantastic breakfasts and good tips on what to see and do in the...

What can we say. WinnieHill is a very special place to be. Tucked up in the hills near Faro away from the tourist areas yet so accessible to everything. Other than the great location, comfortable bedrooms, AMAZING breakfast, calmness, beautiful pool is the hospitality of Fiona and Robin Wilson, Abigail, Badger and Winnie the cat. You get a massive warm...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Winniehill. Robin and Fiona were amazing hosts with excellent recommendations for local restaurants, etc. We really appreciated the very detailed written directions to local hot spots. Very handy, since street signs are not always easily found in Portugal. Breakfast was INCREDIBLE! My husband eats gluten free and Fiona made sure he did not miss...

This was a real "find" for us - peaceful surroundings in a magical house in the foothills overlooking Faro and the surrounding countryside. Fiona and Robin were excellent hosts and a font of knowledge on the local area. Top Tip no.1 - car essential to make the most of a stay here. Top Tip no.2 - starve yourself for several...

We stayed at Winnie Hill for a week and we had the most stressless holidays ever! The place is just wonderful with a perfect view, a nice swimming pool and cute rooms. The breakfast is better than in a 5-Star Superior hotel -Thanks to Fiona.
