I wish all B&Bs were as nice as this one! Highgate House is practically perfect in every way.
Margaret and Cyril are great hosts, warm, welcoming, helpful and kind, but never intrusive. The room I stayed in was beautiful, freshly decorated, comfortably furnished and modern, yet still warm and homely. It's those litle things like a nice packet of biscuits and bottled water, that show they've really thought about giving their guests the best. The bathroom was spotless, the towels fluffy, the hot water plentiful. Have a look at the pictures of the rooms on their website, they really are as nice as they look.
Breakfast was freshly cooked and tasty, and there was plenty of it. At £35.00 a night, this represented real value for money. It is a 10 minute walk from the town and the station, but as I stayed Saturday night, I was actually glad to be out of the town centre. Highgate House is on the main road out of town, so was easy to find, and I felt perfectly happy walking back after a meal in town. I wouldn't have felt so happy staying in the town centre. Apparently there's plenty of parking if you come by car, so getting there's no problem.
This is a small, family business, just three rooms in a large and superbly furnished house, and maybe that's what makes it such a gem. The owners care about what makes a good B&B, and they care about each and every guest. Highgate House is an absolute gem, and I would recommend it to anyone.
