‘Funeral 2024 style - celebratory afternoon tea’

Review of The Highdown
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Jan 2024via mobile
From the moment I emailed them to the afternoon tea itself they could not have been more helpful and understanding. It was a gathering of family in celebration of my mothers life instead of a funeral. It went smoothly and everyone thought it was a much better idea than a funeral.
The staff were welcoming, empathetic, helpful and friendly.
We could not have asked for me. Greatest thanks.

Will always be Sterns... and I guess a lot of party goers would recommend this as a perfect place for trip advisor...
10pm the underground would open...the lazer show would start
.and the visuals on the old TVs would start swirling... the steps would sway around and we all had a great time. Call it what you like... it'll always be Sterns

Discovered by accident and what a great discovery it turned out to be.
Great staff, very good rooms and amazing food….
Dinner was superb and great value for money.
We will become regular visitors for dining out and overnight stays when we are un-inclined to travel too far from home.

I'll keep this brief. Cannot fault the superb quality of the sunday roast I recently enjoyed here. The service was excellent too and we all had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. Will definitely be going there from now on.

Room tip: Definitely book the restaurant or you may be disappointed.

We stayed on 7th September for one night for my birthday. We were blown over by the quality of the rooms the restaurant was amazing best pub type food we have had in years and so much choice. Well done to the Chef. All the staff were so friendly nothing too much trouble we will definitely be back and stay longer. We were left a lovely bottle of bubbly in our room and a Happy Birthday message which was very unexpected. We would like to say a big thank you to the Manager Maria and Owen in the restaurant too sorry didn't find out any other names of staff.

Room tip: No Air Con in rooms if very hot a fan is provided however.

Lovely hotel with nice rooms. Everything is done to a high standard and very clean. Beds were comfy. The rooms were quite hot, and although a fan was in the room this wasn’t sufficient at cooling it down. Please look at air con. Generally great food at the hotel. Lovely cooked breakfasts including fresh fruit, nice yogurts and decent pastries, although they do need to learn how to poach an egg. Also, almost every meal there was a wait for at least one of our group to get their meal. We were a group of four so not too complicated. Would stay again and hope that some tweaks can be made based on feedback. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.
