Staying at Highbourne is pretty much like being at home, plus all the comforts and attentions you can think of. I have lived there for 6 months and Jane and Tony have been the most exquisite hosts, always very thoughtful, they helped me far beyond I expected, offering the best accommodation I could ask for and giving me advices for...

I have been staying here during the week for several months now and Highbourne is a lovely place to stay. Jane and Tony are great hosts with a truly relaxed and welcoming attitude. Everything is spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed and arrangements are made with an absolute minimum of fuss. A sanctuary in a sometimes crazy world ;-)

I stayed here on a number of occasions whilst in Guildford on business, and.....Jane (with Tony) has this hidden gem with being the most welcoming with her kind, considerate and generous open way of sharing Highbourne with her guests. Close your eyes, dont worry what room you are allocated as they are all as good as one another, help yourself... More

Jane and Tony are wonderful hosts in this amazing house, set in a lovely part of the town. I am currently staying four nights a week, working away from home, and am made to feel at home. Nothing too much trouble: great!

I first spoke to Jane about 8 months ago as I was on the look out for a b&b for the night of our wedding. Ever since then I visited and have spoke to Jane ironing out details. Jane is an exceptional host and when you stay here you are treated as one of the family. My bridesmaids and I... More

Stayed here for one night for a wedding. Can't praise it highly enough. Arrived at early in the the afternoon and was given a pot of coffee while I changed and then given a lift to the wedding venue by the lovely owner Jane! The house is lovely and the rooms large and comfortable. Great breakfast next morning.

Stayed six nights with wife and daughter. If you want a place that is centralized in Guildford then this is the place. You are ten minutes to downtown with shopping and restaurants and also about ten minutes to the train station(take the fast train to London, Waterloo stop). What makes this place such a wonderful place are the hosts: Jane... More

It is over two weeks since I stayed at Highbourne and ever since I have been trying to write a review that would sufficiently portray my absolute delight about my 2-night stay there. I have stayed in some wonderful hotels around the world but Jane is so special that I just wish I could transport Highbourne to wherever I need... More

It is very rare that I stay somewhere so special that I feel compelled to write a review. I like to spend weekends away with my friends and have stayed in some lovely boutique b&b's, but none delivering the quality or welcome that we received here. Jane is simply amazing and her home is fabulous. Ladies, if you want the... More
