Highcroft House
Ranked #5 of 28 Towcester B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 5, 2010

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.

stayed at Highcroft house recently, rooms were lovely, bathrooms were big and beautifully decked out - huge shower. it's well located in the centre of towcester and very good value - an excellent full english the next morning with the sunday papers was the perfect end to a lovely stay. Karen and Peter the owners are super friendly - Peter ran me down to a nearby church as i couldn't get a cab - so i didn't miss a mates wedding, and wouldn't accept a penny - really nice touch. i work in the travel industry and have seen many a hotel over the years and i can't reccommend Highcroft house highly enough - look no further for a b&b in towcester this is the spot.

A relatively new place in Towcester, The High Croft House Boutique B&B sets a new standard from my previous B&B experiences. Whilst on a main Rd, the building is listed and has a lot of charm as do the owners, who couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasurable, customer service was excellent. The rooms are kitted out to a high standard and provide a really comfortable nights sleep. The full cooked breakfast is amongst the best I have tasted, all this for a VERY reasonable price.

I would definitely use this B,B&B again

We just returned from a long weekend away for the British GP.

Hightcroft House is a fantastic building which has been refurbished to an exceptional standard by the hosts Karen and Peter.

They could not do enough for us over the weekend and went out of their way to make us feel at home.

Would highly recommend and would return hopefully soon.

On a different note, we found the locals very friendly. The local restaurants we expensive though, charging too much for mediocre food.

Stayed here for the GP weekend and it was excellent. A charming town house that has been sympathetically restored with period features. Our bedroom was extremely comfortable - well decorated, good equipment and a huge bathroom. Very friendly and helpful owners and secure parking too. Great home cooked breakfasts and a nice Italian restaurant literally around the corner.

A very pleasant overnight stop with my wife, room was spacious, very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. Its location in a small market town is convenient for all of the local amenities, including several good pubs only a short stroll away. The breakfast was a bit special, all ingredients sourced locally (the sausages were excellent). Would recommend it.
