Reviewed 27 August 2014

We have stayed at the at this hotel for a variety of reasons. Every stay has been very pleasant and relaxing.
The receptionist was friendly and professional. the staff in Fizzty's bar were very helpful and the service was very good.
The room was very bright and clean. The wifi was fast and convenient.
There was a wedding at the hotel but it didn't interfere with our stay at all. The service was as good as ever.
We are sure we will be returning again

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the front of the hotel

We stayed for the night and had dinner. There was a wedding party at the hotel so a bit of life but no disturbance whatsoever - we stayed in the Annexe, Parker's Lodge.
There was a wonderful, helpful welcome complete with wifi password and reservation for dinner. The room was large, exceptionally clean and very very comfortable. Lots of coffee, tea, water and biscuits in the room. A good TV too and fine spotless bathroom. I stay in lots of hotels internationally and I can safely say few have rooms of this standard.
Dinner menu was good and the service in the bar/restaurant was exemplary - friendly, helpful and efficient. The two people who served us were simply marvellous. The food was well served and very tasty.
Having had the meal in the evening, breakfast the next morning was just ok for me - while freshly cooked it was very ordinary indeed. Still the service was very good and the staff were very responsive to our requests.
All in all a great value stay and one that we will be looking to repeat quite soon.

Room Tip: Certainly very good rooms in the Annexe Parker's Lodge.

Booked this hotel 2 days before travelling and got a Double room with breakfast for 2 for £69.00 which was actually less than a nearby Premier Inn.

The room, whilst not big was clean and comfortable and nicely decorated.

Breakfast though was one of the best we have had in a hotel for a while as it was freshly cooked to order and not 'buffet style' for the hot food.

Even the food on the Friday Night was good value for a hotel with the chicken or steak special including a bottle of house wine at £25.99 for 2 and served piping hot and all the staff were friendly and helpful.

Whilst the location is a bit isolated, it had great grounds and facilities for weddings etc. and lovely views from the bar and terrace.

Altogether, a nice place to stay and would go again if in the area.

Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased you enjoyed our cooked to order breakfast, we feel it is a more relaxed option than a self service buffet. Our Steak and Chicken night on every Friday is very popular and we feel, good value. I am happy to read that you would stay again if in the area.

We found this hotel amongst the clutter of web-promoted hotels near to what we wanted to visit and what a little gem it was! My satnav managed to find it at the top of the hillside and the impressively large car park seemed to say, 'a lot of people know this spot'. The allocated room was in a nearby purpose built accommodation block surrounded by garden greenery and a partial view across the impressive valley. A large room and really well insulated against neighbour noise. Well appointed and cared for and a pleasure to use. The breakfasts and dinners were excellent. Well done the Chef(s)! And for our 2 nights a lot of folk about giving a very nice ambience in the bar/dining room.
We were not able to get a beer when we arrived late afternoon because the bar did not open until 6.30pm but that didn't matter too much to us 'Oldies' so no marks lost!
The staff were all very pleasant and seemed to enjoy their work in the hotel and the surrounding extensive grounds.
Higher Trapp is certainly worth its No.2 rating and we may return some day in the future.

Thank you for your in depth review of our hotel. I am delighted to read your comments and I am pleased you feel we deserve our ranking. I am sorry you were not able to obtain a drink from the bar on arrival, this is most unusual as we do not limit the bar opening times for guests staying in the hotel. I hope you will stay with us again in the near future.
