My husband and I stayed at the Highlander for three nights I have mobility difficulties so we were given a disabled - friendly room. The usual managers were away and there was a caretaker couple who had taken over that day. They were so friendly and helpful, enthusiastic and very obliging. Our room was large, very clean and comfortable. We... More

Many thanks for the friendly and helpful service provided when we visited. Ideally located next to the hospital ( the reason for our stay), comfy beds, very clean and nothing a problem. If we have to return we would definitely stay again. Thanks for everything.

We arrived to a cheerful greeting from Dianne. The room was modern and so well appointed - the staff cleaning the rooms do an excellent job - couldn't fault anywhere in the property. The Beds are unbelieveably Comfortable - Pillow tops that make you feel you are sleeping on a cloud - we didn't want to get out of bed!... More
