Booked for a very special 70th birthday for 12 people and could not have wished for a better venue. Darren is so welcoming and hospitable and despite it being very busy, nothing was too much trouble and the service excellent. Would most certainly recommend.

We've been coming to the Hilltop for many, many years and it's the only place I've continually returned to where the food, atmosphere and service has always been perfect. Everybody works so hard to make your visit so enjoyable. Brilliant!

The telephone number is 01732 822481, I am sure they can provide a more precise answer, but I believe they are open for Christmas Day lunch.

This hotel is Stansted, KENT not Stanstead Essex. Therefore not near the airport. As a frequent traveller to Stanstead Airport a taxi from Kent is around £50 each way.
