“warm welcome”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Stayed here for one night as had a murder mystery evening booked on the Great Central Railway steam train. Excellent location as only 10min walk to station. Warm welcome when we arrived and secure parking front and rear of property. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was in the lovely conservatory and the choice was excellent. Juices, yoghurts, fresh fruit, cereals all available and the full english was perfect. Definitely will visit again as we also had a great time on the murder mystery evening and wine available when we got back to the guest house to finish the evening off! 10 out of 10 for both.

I have stayed at the Highbury twice now, once last year on a Uni visit and returned this year en-route for the North East.

Friendly welcome from the proprietor. Our en-suite twin room was compact, but well appointed, clean and fresh. Free Wi-Fi. Secure off-street parking at back and front.

We ate out in Loughborough (Salim's, also on the Leicester Road), but evening meals are also available by prior arrangement.

Breakfast was available early (weekday, 7am, earlier by arrangement) and had a wide choice of cooked, fruit, cereals, juices, etc. The full English breakfast was excellent; including real fried bread (a rarity these days, I find) and hearty bacon slices with even a choice of tomatoes (tinned or fresh grilled). The only thing missing for me was black pudding, but it's a minor issue and by no means everyone's preference. The dining room is in the conservatory at the back of the property, and is light, airy and pleasant. Service was informal but pleasant and prompt.

Despite being located on the busy A6 Leicester Road (opposite the Endowed Schools entrance) we had no problems with noise in our front-facing room. However, it can be a little tricky getting out in the morning rush if you want to turn right (north) because of the weight of traffic in both directions, some of which is also wanting to turn into the schools entrance directly opposite. I managed to 'bully' my way out, but he more circumspect might prefer to take a left with the traffic flow and then go left down Beeches Road, left into Albert Promenade, left into Great Central Road and again into A60 King Street, which allows a traffic-light controlled right turn onto the A6 a bit higher into the town opposite Fairfield Prep School.

A pleasant and enjoyable short stay. £66 for two including breakfast, booked at short notice. Would definitely return again.

I have just come back from a three day conference at Loughborough. I really appreciated the friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very comfortable, easy access to both wifi, and the essential glass of wine (if you want it) in the evening! The breakfast choice was fantastic. Thank you!

Room Tip: I had a large room facing the main road, so some might find this a little noisy if you like to sleep...

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting friends and family in Sutton Bonington. The room was comfortable, Irene and the staff were friendly and welcoming.
The breakfast was excellent!
The location is convenient, Loughborough Railway Station and the Town Centre are a short walk away, also an interesting walk on the towpath by the Canal. We will stay there again when we return.

We've stayed at the Highbury 4 or 5times now and it never disappoints. It has a great location, well placed for the university and town centre and has good off road parking.
The place is beautifully clean and tastefully decorated. We stay in the ground floor family room, which is large and comfortable. Breakfast is excellent, lots of choice and the full English is delicious. There is always a warm welcome from Irene and the team. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in the area

Room Tip: Ground floor family room is excellent value for money
