Brilliant

Highly recommend Highbullen Hotel. We got married there and everything was just perfect. We stayed at the Manor House which has gorgeous rooms with comfy beds and modern bathrooms. The whole place is so cosy and comfortable. The hotel is set in beautiful surroundings, the views are breathtaking. There are also sport facilities, lovely pool and a great gym. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. All the staff is so easy going, friendly and helpful. Honestly, Highbullen is perfect for relaxing breaks or weddings (small or big). Absolutely brilliant, 5 stars all the way.

Fantastic venue

Good food with pleasant service in wonderful surroundings. We stayed in one of the annex rooms which was excellent and great value. Some issues with the booking through a third party agency but staff sorted it all out. There's a separate tea room as well as the main house restaurant. Both were great.

Perfect wedding venue & hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

We got married in December 2018 at Highbullen Hotel, and had the most perfect day!
We stayed for two nights with all of our family and friends making it a weekend visit, and got to fit in a round of 18 holes the day before!
Everyone commented on how lovely the venue was, the food, facilities and the accommodation.
We got married in the Palazzo which I have attached some images, a beautiful venue with high domed ceilings.
The staff were incredibly helpful from start to finish with the preparations and on the day, nothing was ever too much of an ask and we cannot thank you enough!

Fantastic stay

Well my dad won a night stay here with 3 course meal , overnight stay and breakfast. As he was unable to go due to his health , he gave us his prize. What a absolute gem of a place. The staff were so polite and kind. The room was perfect , i would have stayed in the bed all day , it was so comfortable. We stayed in Sir Laurence Olivier room. The evening meal was Fantastico , we even had a special soup made by the chef from root vegetables, so very tasty. Breakfast was very good. The room and the whole hotel is lovely. There is so much you can do here, golf, fishing, shooting, swimming, fitness etc. The hotel has some very good offer's. The overnight stay would make a perfect present for anyone. We would definetly return , maybe in the better weather. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Holiday Cottages @ Highbullen Hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We hired Fairways East and West cottages at the Highbullen Hotel and we were absolutely thrilled with them. As a large family group it's not always easy to find accommodation for us, we are a group of 20 including children. The 2 cottages are linked and provide fabulous facilities for a large group. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed, the accommodation was clean and comfortable.
we used the pool facilities, the Laura Ashley tea room and the restaurant, both were lovely and no complaints at all.
I would recommend Highbullen Cottages and we hope to visit again!
