“Best in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

There is only one place to stay in Leominster and this is it. Our hosts, Cyril and Margaret felt like old friends. Short walk to town centre. .Accommodation and breakfasts were perfect. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

So many positives have been written about this B&B that there's not too much left to write. Cyril and Margaret provide excellent accommodation, hearty breakfasts and friendly faces whenever you see them. However, it's the little extras that make the difference. The attention to detail in the rooms, comfortable beds, tea and coffee making facilities (with fresh milk if you ask) and delicious homemade cakes in your room when you return at the end of the day. The delightful dining room, where breakfast is served, has a cosy open fire and classical music playing discreetly. The coffee is good and hot and the cooked breakfast is served on warm plates. Perfect. What more could you ask for? It was like coming home. A great place to stay and a fabulous base from which to explore the area (all the way to Wales). We would definitely stay here again.

Wow, what a lovely review after you had told us you were fussy customers.!! We really enjoy all our different guests and from what you've written, I think it must show. Hope you arrived safely at your next destination ( on the other side of the country ) and it's all you expected. Look forward to seeing you again next time you're in England and perhaps the weather will be kinder to you. Once again, very many thanks for your lovely review and for staying with us.

Highgate House, Leominster: Another very enjoyable stay at this excellent B&B. Warm welcome, very nice room, friendly service and good breakfasts. Town centre is about 10 minutes walk away. There is a sizeable Wetherspoon's pub in the centre too - The Duke's Head.

Having stayed at Highgate House in 2011 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit, it made sense to stay there again on our return to Leominster and we weren't disappointed. A comfy bed, a lovely breakfast and warm welcome, what more do you need.

Well everything here was really first class. Lovley room, spotless, well decorated, spacious. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming, they really do take pride in running the place. Breakfast was relaxed and top quality. I'd stay again for certain and can't recommend the place enough. It has four stars from the tourist board, I think it should have five...!
Great place for a couples visit to Leominster, near enough to Ludlow or Hay on Wye
