I have a few words to say about this place that I had the misfortune to book, unfortunately manage to arrive and then stay at for 2 nights. This was a blatant and appalling example of FALSE ADVERTISING. The building as photographed and presented as the venue is NOT what you get. It is more like staying at a halls... More

I stayed here for one night for my sister's wedding although other wedding guests stayed longer and reported a similar excellent experience. The hotel is deceptively large with a number of blocks and annexes and makes the place quite spread out. The rooms are best described as cosy and quaint - not that this a bad thing of course. It...

Hotel looks dated from the outside and some of the rooms are poor, however my room was in the main hotel and was quaint and lovely. The team at Highgate cannot do enough for you and the food is amazing and of a particularly high quality, can't wait to come back in November

Arrived for a private function but informed the hotel at late notice that we needed a ground floor room. This was no problem and the hotel couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect. Food was exceptional, especially breakfast. Thank you to the staff for making our stay so pleasant.

My family and I recently stayed at this hotel for two nights, where we celebrated a family wedding. The wedding was excellent, food very good and service too. The accomodation however was variable. Three family rooms were booked in the new part, these were very good and had plenty of room, one being huge. However our room was in the... More
