“Seeing is believing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

Having researched this B and B via Tripadvisor I can only say believe what you read! This is a wonderful place to stay made even better by the owners, Margaret and Cyril, who are delightful people and genuinely want their guests to enjoy the ambiance of their wonderful Victorian home. The rooms were lovely and well thought out, beautifully presented and decorated. Margaret even had cake ready for us to have in our room when we arrived, a nice touch.
It was also good value for money, proving that great quality doesn't have to cost the earth.
Breakfast was very good, plenty of it and a wide choice including fresh fruit salad each morning.
If we're in Leominster again we will look no further than Highgate House, a prefect place to stay which deserves the accolades credited to it.
Thank you Margaret and Cyril, we will be back!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back/side of the house may be quieter as quite it's on quite a busy main road.

Wow, how lovely to find such a terrific review for doing something we really enjoy ie) having guests in our home. As you know,we only started our B and B after getting bored with retirement and now it's something we wish we had done sooner. Our aim is to give guests what we would like ourselves and a bit more if possible. Glad you enjoyed your stay and when you move to Leominster at least you will know two people!! Thanks so much for taking the time to do such a wonderful review.

This was the verdict of our 11 year old daughter after our recent overnight stay. We met up with friends and Margaret and Cyril kindly rearranged the breakfast room so we could all eat together. This was just one example of the relaxed, attentive and cheerful attitude we found there. Our daughter was also greatly impressed with the cake. Breakfast for all of us was varied and delicious, with veggie bacon and sausages on offer for two of us. We had the triple room at the back and this was excellent.

Stayed early September for a local wedding and Highgate House provided everything you need from a B&B with clean rooms and nicely cooked breakfast. It was also convenient for Hampton court castle.

However what made me write this review is that yesterday I received a nice surprise! I had left my pyjamas there and thought that was the end of that. Yet yesterday I received a parcel and they had posted them to me unprompted! This was very kind and beyond the call of duty. So thank you very much!

Nadia, so glad you received your pyjamas. Did you notice they had been washed and ironed as well?.You didn't put a full post code on your registration card but a very kind lady at Leominster post office found it for me so glad they turned up safely.
Thank you for staying with us and for your thoughtful review

Having looked online at Highgate House, and been impressed, we booked a 3 night stay and were not disappointed. We opted for Room 2, which as the photos had suggested, was spacious, well decorated and even contained a couple of 'easy' chairs, perfect for reading the paper, while scoffing a slice of Margaret's lovely cake! Margaret and Cyril are excellent b&b hosts and full of useful advise. We had been a little disappointed in the restaurants/pubs in Leominster at first glance, but were persuaded to try the Italian restaurant, Milano, which we liked so much we spent 2 evening there. We could walk into the town from Highgate House, which was a lovely bonus and allowed us to share a bottle of wine. Well done Margaret and Cyril, you certainly went a long way towards making our trip to the area such a success. Highly recommended for comfort and excellent value for money!

Very many thanks for your great review and for choosing to stay with us. We're so glad we helped to make your visit to the Leominster area enjoyable. The praise is even more important to us as you are ex B and B owners. We try very hard to suggest the most suitable places for our guests to eat,even having to try out everywhere ourselves ( what a chore ) Anyhow it would be lovely to have you both stay with us and perhaps we'll see you again some time in the future

From the minute I arrived I felt very welcomed into their home. On going to my room (which was spacious, tastefully decorated and very clean) I was welcomed with a piece of cake - a lovely touch! Everything that you could possibly need was provided. The breakfasts were lovely - especially the local bacon and eggs. Both Margaret and Cyril were great hosts - very helpful and easy to talk to - very friendly people. Overall, I would recommend Highgate House to all that like "a home away from home".

This is a delightful B&B, very homely and comfortable, its a beautiful house and the room we were in was very spacious and welcoming after our journey.
We stayed here en route to Wales and ate out at an Indian restauraunt in the Town on Margaret's reccomendation, it was really nice.
Margaret and Cyril are great hosts, and provided a tasty breakfast. I couldn't fault it.
If I was in the area again, i would certainly stay here.

I’ve been lucky enough to stay at the Highgate House on many occasions, each time has been very pleasurable.

I’m well-travelled and have stayed in many hotels and guest houses throughout Europe. But never found one to match the quality and friendliness that Cyril and Margaret offer to their customers.
The reason is they take pride in their business and home, and you do really feel at home when staying.

I’ve stayed in all 4 rooms over the years, and each one has its own character and are all are wonderfully decorated.
The en-suite facilities are well presented, with plenty of space and the shower is very good. Margaret even bakes her own cakes and put them in your room to enjoy.

Breakfast is also great, Margaret makes a wonderful dry-up or you can choose from a good selection of fruits and cereals, tea and coffee.

Parking is covered and very secure, never had any problems with finding a space. Private parking is available at the rear.

My girlfriend has stayed with me on several occasions, she is Vegan and both Cyril and Margaret have gone out of their way to cater for her extra needs and make her feel just as welcome.
Nothing is ever to much trouble for them and we have had many laughs and interesting conversation during my stays.

If you are looking for a place to stay, don’t look anywhere else. They are number 1 on Trip advisor for a reason and it’s plain to see why by all.

Looking forward to many more stays.

Room Tip: All 4 rooms are wonderful.

You have just put into words, the sort of atmosphere we want to convey so we must be doing it right. Highgate House is a big old Victorian house that needs to be full of people. It is also our home and we want our very welcome guests to feel " at home " here. It is not a job for us (well maybe most of the time )and we really enjoy meeting all our very different guests.So very many thanks for your great review and for staying with us again. Perhaps you'll get a game of tennis with Cyril !!
