“Special overnighter”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We were looking for a quiet but uplifting place to stay and found it here at the Higher Trapp. A beautiful room, good food and excellent staff fitted the bill. Brilliant weather and a four poster bed made our 40th anniversary extra special.

My family live in Lancashire, so when we travel to see them we normally stay overnight in a nice hotel.
We've stayed here on numerous occasions and I absolutely love it! I love the size of the rooms, the staff are always lovely and the breakfast is superb!
But I do think it's time for a revamp! The rooms are beautiful but so outdated! And our room we stayed in on this occasion was absolutely freezing, the radiator was temperamental and although it did eventually warm up, we sat in front of the tiny heater trying to take the chill off for a while!
It's a lovely place, but could be even nicer!

Stayed December 2013

Excellent staff on reception, lovely views, clean large room, free wifi - and all for less than £50. Would definitely stay again. Visited a local pub in higham called Four Alls and food was lovely. Plenty of parking.

Business trip yet again. This place was an absolute gem! Inside the rooms are stunning - loads of carved wood and leather chairs. The rooms were great - I couldn't fault a thing. I would love to go back with the Mr - it was a beautiful place and would be very romantic. The food was brilliant too and the staff couldn't be more helpful. A +++ hotel

Great stay at this hotel. Staff were very helpful and accommodating in meeting my needs. Comfortable bed, clean and spacious room. I stayed here for 4 nights and being away from the main roads it afforded me the peace and quiet to complete my work in the evenings. The food served by the restaurant was to a very good standard and was delicious and at an affordable price. All staff were friendly in the restaurant and were very efficient.
Thank you for such a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Little house away from the main hotel is excellent

This was our second visit to this hotel. Rooms are good with comfy beds and the staff are excellent - friendly, cheerful and efficient. We had both breakfast and dinner and enjoyed the food - the dinner menu has a varied content and all the food was well-cooked. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The Annexe is quiet with modern decor, while the rooms in the main house are more traditional but co...
