I wish I had done this review sooner after our stay in April this year, but was stopped by my browser breaking last time! Me and my boyfriend will never forget the Highfield as it was the base of our first, and such a perfect holiday. The manager Nick was an absolute dream when booking, and was so nice about me annoyingly wanting to change the date of our stay, and then changing back! We stayed in room 16 which was lovely, with it's balcony, view of the mountains and lake, and luxurious decor. Nick somehow carried both our heavy luggage bags up with him at once. Everything was clean, comfy and perfect in my eyes.
After each great day in the stunningly beautiful location - taking the launch to different stops all around the lake, going on walks and climbing Catbells - returning to the Highfield was the best thing ever. Going to dinner was such a lovely ritual that we'd dress up for, and we'd love sitting in the cosy lounge with our tasty canopies and drinks to sit with while deciding what courses to order. The dining room was lovely and and the food was the best we've both ever had! This is taking into account the amazing warm, fresh bread made every day in different flavours, and the sorbet between courses! The service was perfect and we were made to feel like royalty!
Breakfast every morning was of course, amazing too and they served everything you could want for the perfect posh breakfast. Every day the staff did all they could for us and nothing was too much trouble. And aside from this.. IT WAS THE BEST BARGAIN EVER!! I still can't believe how good the deal was - maybe because it was in winter.
Thank you again for such a perfect time ^_^ we still reminisce about this holiday!
