First impressions count, and mine was very positive from the time I called to make a booking and spoke to Margaret. On arrival I was met by Cyril, who introduced me to Margaret and found them both to be a charming couple. My room was comfortable and clean and well maintained. Breakfast was cooked to order as well as offering... More

So glad you enjoyed your short stay with us and we'll be pleased to welcome you back, next time you need to be in Leominster. Can't believe our breakfast is better than the London Hilton-----perhaps they'll give me a job!! Really kind of you to take time to do us a review as it's always useful to have guests feedback. More

Highgate House is not to be missed! Cyril and Margaret are the warmest hosts, and their rooms immaculate and stylish! Everyday Margaret surprises her guests with a piece of her magnificent home baked goodies, and their breakfasts are everything one needs to begin their day with!

Cyril and Maggie were most welcoming, we had a lovely stay, very clean and comfortable (best night sleep) and a great breakfast. We managed to find plenty of things to do in the local area, and the country side is beautiful, well worth a visit.

Highgate House offers spotless accommodation, generous and very kind hosts who go out of their way to make the stay as easy as possible including a lift from the railway station, and great advice on where to eat in Leominster; plus a brilliant cooked breakfast and the only B and B I know that serves homemade cake everyday!
