“Warm welcome with cake”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

I arrived to a warm welcome after a long days cycle (part of a Land's End to John o'Groats trip). In my spacious room was a piece of homemade coffee and walnut cake which went down a treat. The room and en-suite bathroom were very clean and in excellent order. The breakfast was very good. All in all a pleasant stay.

Firstly, very well done on completing the Land's End to John 'O Groats charity cycle ride. Must say we love the photos you've put on Trip Advisor along with your super review. We've got an ipad now and been busy taking photos of our B and B to put on trip advisorr ( miracle for someone who is not technical !) Best of luck and perhaps we'll see you again sometime

It's a pity you only needed to stay one night with us but we seem to have made a good impression on you. Highgate House is a lovely old Victorian house, still retaining many features from that era and has a real feeling of space.Hope you found some interesting things at Leominster's antique fair and perhaps we'll meet again next year.

Clean, welcoming and great value for money.
Lovely building with great features, well decorated.
Breakfast was perfect not too much that you felt too full, but not mean portions.
Very nice people they were really friendly.
Perfect place to stay with lots to see nearby, would recommend and would stay again.

Stayed here with my mum in early June and had a fantastic stay. Felt totally comfortable here, like a home from home. A gorgeous house and the owners are lovely, accommodating and really friendly. I don't often like staying in b&b's but would definitely come back here, it even has a very cute cat that resides here too!

The rooms are large & airy with en suites & good showers - something I am particular about. The beds are really comfy & has tv etc. The whole place is extremely clean too.

I strongly recommend

This was the perfect choice for accommodation for our recent long weekend spent exploring the lovely Herefordshire countryside. Margaret and Cyril are very considerate and welcoming hosts and made us feel very much at home throughout our stay. Highgate House itself is an attractive old building (Victorian?) decorated tastefully and with due consideration to the period features of the property. We were very lucky with our weather and enjoyed an excellent breakfast each morning sitting by the window in the lovely bright dining room. The gentle classical music playing in the background whilst we tucked in was a nice touch I thought, as were the two fresh cakes left in our room each day. Lovely. It was also a pleasure to meet the cat, Mrs Wilkins or Lovely girl, depending on who you were asking.

The room, and indeed the whole property, was very clean and, as referred to above, the breakfast was excellent; a full english, preceded by toast and a choice of cereals, fruit salad, prunes, orange juice etc etc. Very nice tea and coffee too.

Other things to note? Comfortable bed, good shower, convenient parking either on the road at the front or under cover at the back, use of the fridge for chilling beers, good options for an evening meal only a short walk away in Leominster. Terrific.

In short then, a lovely bed and breakfast well worthy of it's excellent reputation and 'number 1 in Leominster' spot on Trip Advisor.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. Margaret and Cyril were very helpful, washing clothes, giving dining tips and lending us cuff links. Our room was lovely, very comfortable and clean. We would recommend this b & b to anyone.

Reviews are excellent but you need to stay here yourself to appreciate how good Highgate House really is. Greeted and catered for by two of the most friendly and genuine people that we have come across on our travels throughout the UK. This hotel exceeded all our expectations and we can throughly recommend it to anyone,breakfast was cooked to perfection and everything was spotlessly clean.The attention to detail in both presentation and hospitality would be hard to beat.

Room Tip: Room number 1 has a great view of the well manicured gardens.

How lovely to find this super review on Trip Advisor. So glad you enjoyed your short stay with us and we hope you'll stay again when your lovely grand daughter has to work in the area. By the way, we saw her in last year's brochure for the company and she looked great. Once again, very many thanks for your review and for staying with us.
