As a family we have used the Higher Trapp hotel on numerous occasions. This time, after marrying overseas we held our wedding party with family and friends at the hotel. They didn't disappoint us - great food and fantastic service. Everyone in our party had an awesome time and we couldn't thank the staff enough. Would highly recommend for functions.

Travelling with 9 month old twins can at times be challenging but this hotel went out of their way to make us feel at home. From erected travel cots, comfy high chairs, warmed food and nappy disposals nothing was too much effort. As a result we had excellent night sleeps and all felt nice and rested. The only thing I...

My husband and I stayed here for a night over Christmas, after celebrating at a friend's Silver Wedding party. The party was a great success, the function room had its own private bar and the staff made sure everything ran smoothly. The food was excellent - real home cooking and a range to suit most tastes. Our bedroom was rather... More

We discovered this hotel on the Internet and got a good rate for 2 night's DBB. We were really delighted with it. The views from the room were fabulous and the room was well equipped and warm. The reception staff were very friendly. We loved the gorgeous, cosy lounge where we whiled away the frosty hours with a good book.... More

On a B&B basis - with breakfast being fab - not buffet style but cook to order - delicious. If you want comfort... More
