Reviewed September 17, 2011

Spent 2 nights here whilst on business in Towcester. rooms are very nicely furnished to a very high standard. Peter and Karen and Hugo (the dog) are very welcoming. had really great nights sleep. Breakfast was superb, fresh fruit, toast, full English, croissants, cereals, tea and coffee..........
was certainly a better stay than what i have been used to in another establishment that i have been using for the last year - a gem of a find highly recommend.

My wife and I stayed at Highcroft House while attending an event at Silverstone. It was excellent. I stay at quite a lot of B&Bs on my business travels and Highcroft is quite possibly the best I have encountered. The proprieters are very friendly and helpful, the rooms very comfortable, an excellent breakfast and it is right in the middle of town, close to all the restaurants and amenities. We've already booked for the same event next year.

Four of us stayed at Highcroft House this April and we all agreed it was an absolute gem. The house itself is beautifully furnished and the rooms are extremely comfortable. We stayed in Stowe and Lamport on the top floor. These were lovely, as were the two rooms on the floor below (couldn't help but take a peek!)

Dinner was outstanding. Karen is an excellent chef and the food was really to a professional standard.

A fabulous place and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: The four-poster suite looked super romantic

I don't normally write reviews but felt I had to share my experience with other travellers. I would not hesitate to recommend Highcroft House, it's owners, Karen & Peter a very friendly and welcoming. The place itself has been very tastefully and sympathetically restored. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfy. The room I stayed in had a large en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. The breakfast was one of the best I have had with plenty of choice. Towcester itself is very quaint and the locals I found to be very friendly. Do not hesitate to stay here, you won't regret it.

Stayed for just one night. Lovely room and en-suite. We were attending a function at the racecourse and the owners kindly gave us a lift! Filter coffee and fresh milk in your room was also very nice. Breakfast was great and was quite a social activity chatting to other guests - it was complete when we could make a fuss of their dog, Hugo who we wanted to take home...... If you want to stay in/around Towcester, this is the place! Thanks Peter and Karen.

Highcroft House is a beautifully and painstakingly renovated boutique B&B.

Our room, Althorp, was superb, with everything we could want and an extremely comfortable four-poster bed..

But the best bit was the huge bathroom, with a freestanding rolltop bath, and a separate, modern shower as well as a dressing area, fluffy bathrobes and luxury bath products.

We can thoroughly recommend taking your evening meal there too - Karen's cooking is superb - and it would be a sin not to have the Full English Breakfast.

The hotel is on a busy A-road. This didn't bother us though - we slept very well despite the noise from the road.

We stayed for a night here and I wanted to stay much longer. Absolute luxury. Set in centre of town of Towcester which is near Silverstone, this character property has been recently refurbished to the highest standard. Rooms are beautifully decorated and bathroom is out of this world, could have stayed in the shower for hours! Pete and Karen are wonderful hosts, couldn't do enough for us and were such warm genuine people and their dog Hugo is an absolute softy. The breakfast was the best Ive ever had; although we were the only guests there for the night, there was a wide selection at breakfast including wonderful homemade muffins and my scrambled eggs with smoked salmon were cooked perfectly, The thoughtful extras are great too such as nice shampoo and shower gel and handcream in the bathroom. They also offer you the chance to buy wine to have in your room which we took advantage of. Great value for money and after a difficult start to our break where we had to leave the guest house we had booked because it was so bad (won't mention the name of it here) this place really made our break away wonderful. Like a home from home, Would recommend to anyone as its the best place I have ever stayed and if m ever back there again would not hesitate to book it. Such a lovely couple who I wish every success to.
