We stayed at Highlands for our Wedding Anniversary recently, and would return again in an instant... Our room was magnificent, a very spacious room on a corner, with a lovely private balcony and beautifully fitted en-suite bathroom, decorated in palest blue/green and cream and with some lovely antiques... A soothing, peaceful space, and one which we didn't want to leave for long... In fact we nested for the entire weekend and only came downstairs to eat! On the subject of eating, the breakfasts were lovely, and the dinner on both nights was SUBLIME! We were given a complimentary bottle of Cap Classique bubbly on our Anniversary night, and a lovely private alcove table, scattered with rose petals. This lovely Establishment surpassed all our expectations, and we so look forward to returning... If you love history and atmosphere and retreating into the grace of yesteryear, with service to match, go and stay at Highlands.. You will not regret it!
