Really nice hotel however we were not put in the main building but converted outhouses. Unfortunately we were disturbed quite a lot of the time because of the occupants upstairs where the floors had not been sound proofed well. They are not attached to the main building so you do have to walk a short way to dinner and breakfast.

We stayed at Highbullen for two nights over the April bank holiday weekend. The décor is lovely, our room was very comfortable, and the staff were all extremely friendly and obliging. We had a lovely meal in the Devon View restaurant on our first night, and a delicious fish pie in the Cellars restaurant the following night. Breakfast was perhaps... More

Care was taken by lady taking our booking that we were allocated just the right room for our needs, and reception on arrival was very welcoming. Our room 23 on second floor of the main house was nice and quiet, also spotlessly clean. Maybe a full length mirror could be incorporated somewhere? When bed proved too hard for wife's problem...

We visited Highbullen last weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. What a great choice! The hotel was recommended by friends and I will certainly be pleased to pass on that recommendation. The hotel itself has recently been refurbished to a high standard but has still retained the charm of a beautiful country house. We didn't stay in the main building,... More

A lovely hotel in a most beautiful setting and certainly a location to enjoy a relaxing break. So much to commend this hotel for but, as a hotel that pitches itself at the top end of the market, a number of niggling issues can be identified. The plus points include the location and scenery, the quality of the rooms, and... More

Excellent. Even before we arrived, staff phoned to ask if we had any special requirements. The water was piping hot, the bed so comfortable and the food excellent. The portion size seemed to increase as the meal went on, huge cheese board. The staff were attentive, friendly and very helpful. Large, immaculately clean room. It is rare to stay somewhere,... More

Four of us stayed at High Bullen a for golf and walking break. We did so all enjoy it - the golf course was challenging and we walked the lovely countryside which surrounds the High Bullen Hotel. It is a beautiful, very well run, country house with friendly and attentive staff where nothing was too much trouble. The food is... More
