“good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Just returned from a 1 night stay at highbullen hotel.we were booked for the outbuildings,but were upgraded to a superior room in the main building when we arrived with no extra charge. Room was very nice with great views of mole valley. Gym pool/jacuzzi/sauna and steam room were excellent and not packed with people.The breakfast was very nice and was more than enough. The staff Were all friendly and polite. we will definitely return.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Highbullen Hotel. Stayed in the outbuildings-the room was large and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Made good use of the well stocked Gym and the swimming pool/Jacuzzi/steam room and sauna. All food we had both at breakfast and dinner was well presented and well cooked with fabulous views from the restaurant over the countryside. If you are looking for modern this is not the hotel for you. If you are looking for a Hotel that is peaceful, calm and oozes charm and character from a bygone time this is definitely the place to go. We found all the staff very polite, friendly and helpful and with the new owner now in situ feel the hotel will go from strength to strength. We will definitely go back.

Highbullen Hotel provided a great short break venue. The staff were friendly and very helpful, the food was good and the accommodation (staying in the main building), although slightly 'tired' was comfortable and pleasant. The pool and other leisure facilities were good - very clean and enjoyable. The location was ideal for exploring the North Devon coast and the hotel itself is in a beautiful setting. Certainly worth the trip down the lanes to get there!

Room Tip: Ask for the main building.
