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...

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

We stayed at Highbullen over a decade ago and enjoyed the experience. Having become involved in fishing in Devon we needed a bed for one night and decided that we would go back to try the refurbished hotel after enjoying an excellent Sunday lunch there a year ago. From our first words at Reception to saying farewell the next morning... More

I recently was invited by friends to a weekend at the Highbullen Hotel. What an amazing surprise! The place looks stunning. The room I stayed - The Neil, is not just beautiful and extremely comfortable but it has character. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The glass of slow gin served at arrival was a nice touch after a long... More
