It was a last minute idea to stay at the Hilltop for my girlfriend's birthday. From the time of arrival until the moment we left, it felt like we were the only people in the world. The atmosphere and character of the house and grounds filled my heart with familiarity and serendipity
My fiancé visited back in February and loved it so when we decided to return to Hot Springs in August, we want to go back to the Alpine Inn. This time we stayed for three days, in a room that was a little smaller, but still met our needs. We met Leslie this time, and she was just as nice a person as Eric. They have ensured that Alpine Inn will be our first choice when visiting Hot Springs in the future, which we plan to do for many years to come!!
We could not have asked for a more perfect B & B. Scenic surroundings, very comfortably furnished suite, multi course homemade prepared breakfasts, all contributed to the ideal romantic getaway we were hoping for. We will definitely return as soon as we can!
This beautiful old house was stunning. From the moment we walked in Debra was so sweet and helpful. She was also very knowledgeable about the history of the house as well as other places to visit in Little Rock. Everyone that stayed the night we were there was also attending the Dolly concert. When we go back to Little Rock this is the only place we will stay.
I have to say that we were very surprised with our overall experience at the Empress. Comfortable bed, clean rooms, wonderful staff, hot water, great water pressure, and a wonderful breakfast. We will definitely be back!! Thanks for a wonderful time and spoiling us.
This was our second year going to Hilltop Manor Bed and Breakfast for our Anniversary. Jennifer and Joanna are absolutely awesome, they took care of our every need. The grounds are so beautiful and well kept, the rooms are amazing, the food was excellent, the overall vacation was FANTASTIC AND YES, WE WILL RETURN NEXT YEAR.
From excellent service to delicious breakfasts, Hilltop Manor and its innkeepers (owners) have thought of everything to make this a most comfortable stay! Cannot say enough good things about it!!
This was our first visit to a bed and breakfast. We were very pleased with the size and layout of the room, also with the overall cleanliness. The privacy we received was also a plus. We very much enjoyed our stay, and will recommend Hilltop Manor to our friends.
We stayed here for our 12th anniversary and it couldn't have been a better stay. The rooms were clean, the property was beautiful, and the staff was helpful and friendly. Also the breakfast each day was exceptional. Will most definitely stay here again.
My wife and I stayed two nights for a short get-away. The room was great, the home was historic and very nice. The grounds were immaculate, although it was too hot to enjoy for long. Overall, we had a great time!
My husband and I stayed at Tiffany's in June. Tiffany and Bob have done a fabulous job of making this B&B inviting. It's extremely clean and thoughtful touches are everywhere. Special soaps, gourmet coffee, dark chocolates, and wonderful breakfasts. The mattress on our bed was great. There are beautiful plants and flowers on the property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Also, don't miss Garvin Woodland Gardens while staying here. It's one of the most enchanting botanical gardens ever. I lost count of the waterfalls. Tiffany's is great place to rest and recharge. A BIG thank you to the innkeepers!
My husband and I stayed at The Empress for the last night of our honeymoon and we loved it! The whole facility was gorgeous and had a wonderful Victorian feel, just the kind of thing my husband and I like. We stayed in the Majestic, which was wonderful and perfect for us at the time. The breakfast was unique and absolutely delicious, as well. Service was fantastic and we truly felt welcome. We can't wait to go back again someday!
Peaceful, relaxing and tranquil surroundings - including the breath taking open porch area overlooking a waterfall - words can't express how delicious the breakfasts were and the mid-afternoon snacks. Kathy and Dennis Short
My husband and myself only stayed here for one night on a 7-day road trip. This was by far one of the best places we stayed. The ladies who run the B&B are both very pleasant and enjoyable do deal with. The breakfast the next morning was delicious. If you find yourself looking for a place to stay while in Little Rock, do yourself a favor and stay at Hilltop Manor.
We stayed here for a quick two-day anniversary getaway. The inn and grounds were superb. The breakfast was very good and the service was excellent and not intrusive. Our favorite B&B in Hot Springs so far (out of 4).
At the last minute we decided to spend the Memorial weekend at Hot Springs National Park. The Empress was available at a very reasonable price even with the last minute reservation. We enjoyed the Hot Springs, and had the pleasure of soaking in the natural springs bath, ate at Mr Whiskers, a diner joint famous for its down-to-earth (or I should say down-to-mud) fried cat fish (no mud taste at all), and drove up to the Empress for the stay. We had a lovely room. Clean, quiet, and decorated with the fine Victorian style furniture and setting. The inn keeper was nice, friendly, and gave us advices on the local dining options. The next day I went out for a lovely morning run -- it was three miles from the Inn to across the Arkansas River by the Main or the Junction Bridge, then followed the River Trail to return from another one of the 6 bridges. The 9 mile run gave me a good appetite for the breakfast, which was delicious. We then took a Segway tour of the city downtown, allowing me to re visit some of the routes I had run earlier in the morning, and scout out the new route I would run the next day. All in all, we enjoyed our weekend trip, of which the stay at the Empress was a big part.
We sent my parents here for their 20 year anniversary! They had the best time they loved the property and the staff were super! They said it was the very BEST B&B they have ever had the pleasure of staying at and they can't wait to return!!!!
This was a great place to get away and relax. The room was very cozy and the mattress... Slept like a baby on a cloud! innkeeper was very warm and friendly and very accommodating to our needs. The breakfast served each day was amazing! Very yummy and very beautiful! I felt like I was dining at some fancy restaurant! Would definitely come back again!
A wonderful place to relax and just a short 2 minute drive to downtown Hot Springs. The inn is marvelous and the breakfast each morning was simply unbelievable. The owners strive to make your stay an exceptional experience, and ours was indeed.
