4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I have been a visitor to this hotel for over 20 years. Whilst the old family approach was nice and friendly the new owners have invested heavily to improve this great holiday location. The rooms are smarter, the restaurant has moved up a level and the facilities are ideal for a family holiday. The golf course continues to impress although... More

Highbullen has undergone something of a transformation in the last 3 years restoring it to its former glory. The rooms are lovely, the food delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. One thing that hasn't changed is the stunning location. Breath-taking views at ever turn. The golf course was in very good condition and the sheltered outdoor pool area was... More

I thoroughly recommend this hotel. The room I stayed in was clean, well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant food was good and all the hotel staff were very attentive and friendly. I would come back to the Highbullen again.

I've been visiting Highbullen for many years and I'm delighted with the huge improvements the new owners have made. My party stayed in the courtyard rooms which have been beautifully updated. We were also shown around the loft suite which is very impressive. We enjoyed delicious food at breakfast and dinner in the Devon View restaurant with views to die... More

Me and my partner stayed for 2 night over the weekend and had a fantastic experience. The hotel and views were both breathtaking and we did not have to venture out as everything was at our feet. We played Tennis, Golf and enjoyed the Spa during the days and dined in the restaurant of an evening. The food was tasty... More

This was an amazing 4 day break in Devon, we had booked the hotel after reading some good reviews and we were not disappointed at all, the reason we were in this area was because our daughter got married at a nearby venue, on arrival we were greeted most warmly by Susan who checked us in and showed us our...

We had stayed at Highbullen Hotel 9 years ago and had had a great time so were a bit apprehensive about going back knowing there were new owners. But we shouldn't have worried. We couldn't fault the food (apart from a very boring cheese board) and each course was presented beautifully, and tasted amazing. Not huge portions but enough for... More

We booked the celebration package break through the Great Little Breaks website. It was such a good deal that we thought there must be a catch, but no it was brilliant. The hotel and grounds are beautiful, and the leisure facilities excellent. Everywhere around the hotel was spotless and well cared for. There are two very comfortable and stunning guest... More

We stayed two nights here for a friends wedding. The location was perfect with sprawling countryside around and the rooms were beautifully presented. The room was modern, light and spacious, the bed was so comfortable and it was handy to have both a bath and separate shower cubicle in the bathroom. I was disappointed to find that the iron was...
