Being a solo female business traveller I stay in many different hotels across the country, this one has to be the best, by far. My room (The Snug) was light and airy, clean and well equipped. As the name suggests it was small but certainly not too small and ideal for my requirements. Dinner was very tasty. I ate in... More

I hardly ever give five stars as that implies it is as good as it could be. Highbullen was just that. Great location, friendly and very helpful staff, superb facilities, excellent food, and an excellent golf course in good condition. The West Room was good but with a limited view. The Devon View restaurant was truly excellent and the food... More

We have just stayed in a Courtyard room for four days in this stunning location. We wanted a relaxing and restful time following our daughter's wedding and having booked with secret escapes found this to be ideal. The choice of two menus was excellent and the cellars represents good value for money. The view from the main dining room and... More

We have recently stayed 3 nights in the East Room which was spacious, well appointed, spotlessly clean, comfortable and with wonderful views across the valley and golf course. We enjoyed the golf course which was challenging but fair and with great views, we ate once in the main dining room and enjoyed the food although we felt it was at... More

Stayed at Highbullen 10 days ago for two days , booking through Secret Escapes. It was to celebrate my wife's 65th birthday and I had spoken to the hotel prior to arrival, politely requesting a "room with a nice view". We were allocated the West Room, which lived up to its geographical billing, being dark. It seemed to be the... More

Many thanks for your review. Firstly I will try to take my time with my response. I respond to reviews as soon as they come in, on my phone and I have realised that some of my previous responses have had grammatical errors, something that really riles me! Naturally I am disappointed that your stay did not live up to... More

Just spent 4 excellent days here. Delighted with everything and a special mention to Kay who completely understood that a very heavily pregnant vegetarian would be constantly asking if the salad was pre washed, if the fish had shell fish sauce, if the water was purifed!!!! Thank you:)) Stayed away from the Manor House which was very peaceful and room... More

We booked a Secret Escapes break having looked at the hotel website and Tripadvisor reviews and were really looking forward to relaxing in a beautiful setting. Being on a special deal we did not expect to have the best room with a stunning view, but imagine our disappointment when our room was next to a building site with a dripping... More

Best to start with the positives as want to be fair - Beautiful setting, Housekeeping(cleaning) excellent - reception staff efficient and professional. Room lovely but don't think that this was an upgrade as promised by Secret Escapes - I may be wrong though. Booked through Secret Escapes - and looked forward to a lovely 2 day stay.
