While we had a pretty-to-look-at room with a terrific view...I would not ever recommend this B&B to anyone. Our bed was extremely uncomfortable as the mattress was very broken down. Not only was it very saggy, it was covered with a plastic sheet!! Very icky. Also the shower was downright filthy - covered with pink slimy mold that I could wipe off with the washcloth, indicating that it had not been cleaned recently. The final blow was that the shower didn't drain, and filled up so quickly, we had to turn the water off between getting wet and rinsing off. We discretely mentioned it to the hostess, and were told "We will look in to that." Of course, no one checked it at all, and our 2nd morning we again had to shower in filthy surroundings while standing in dirty water. The owners were busy preparing for a family party and were too preoccupied to pay attention to our complaint. The host never asked if we enjoyed our stay when we checked out...very business-only and unfriendly.
The place looks nice, and is in a great location and the breakfasts were decent...such potential but I will never stay here again and will tell my friends and family to steer clear of Highfield House.
