We went there for my 72nd birthday meal. . All the famiily BUT me paying. Excellent 3 course carvery at £13 and the servcce and views from the restaurant were great. The bar bill however came as a bit of a shock........No wonder the meal was so reasonable.. A large glass of wine was OTT as where the cokes and... More

We stayed at Highbullen for our works Christmas party. The party night they organised was excellent, a beautiful venue and the quality of the food was superb. The rooms are lovely, very warm and nicely decorated. The staff are friendly and so accommodating. We stayed last year too and would find this hard to beat for a Christmas do.

Have stayed at HighBullen and used their facilities many times over the years and never been disappointed (also has a great Golf Course) The brand new Conference centre (also ideal for Weddings) was a great success yesterday when we held a business meeting there. Good Service, great food! and a truly stunning setting that always acts as the perfect back... More

Just spent a 2 night break here (Dec 14). Wonderful location, excellent and friendly staff. Had an afternoon tea, home baked scones to die for. Eat in the main restaurant on both nights, the food was terrific and a good wine list to choose from. Breakfast in the same restaurant maintained the high standard. The room we had was not... More

Recently stayed for 1 night to celebrate special occasion. Whilst location was perfect and standard of hotel and cleanliness were high, found the food in the restaurant to be mediocre at best and the staff were disorganised and lacked any interpersonal skills which ruined the whole experience.

The place takes some finding but is well worth the trouble Had a wonderful 3 course carvery meal for Sunday lunch with friends. View over the surrounding countryside is breathtaking and the staff couldn't do too much for us. We finished our meal and retired to a drawing room for coffee and a lovely catch-up. Would highly recommend this place... More

We have been going to this hotel for 35 years. It has always been cosy and comfortable and it is delightfully situated with glorious views of the Devon countryside. Recently a change of ownership has seen considerable investment and updating of all aspects. We would highly recommend it. The golf course is excellent also

Great value on a Secret Escapes break. Room in Sportsman lodge was like the Tardis - much bigger on the inside than you think when you get to the front door (contactless door, don't look for the slot!). Restaurant and bar staff friendly and food in both very good. Plenty to do or just admire the view - definitely on... More

We stayed at Highbullen Hotel, golf & country club this week. We arrived and there was a problem with our room as no heating working in that part of the hotel. Okay it was a pain BUT the staff were horrified and could not have done more to rectify the problem as soon as possible. A log fire was lit... More

Enjoyed a very relaxing break recently at Highbullen with my husband. Very comfortable rooms, the staff could not be more friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Food was very good, especially the Full English breakfast. The icing on the cake has to be the stunning views from the Devon View Restaurant and the morning/day rooms, as well as... More
