Highfield is a wonderful guest house. Classic decor but all modern cons, spotlessly clean. Very comfy and quiet. Not in the city centre but easy to access, and the guest house is walking distance from shops, pubs, and a few minutes walk to the base...More

Spotlessly clean with very good quality furnishings. Hosts made us feel very welcome. Great choice for breakfast. Not too far to walk into City Centre. Plenty of buses for those less energetic. Will stay again.
