My wife and I booked a romantic break as it was our golden wedding anniversary and stayed in the loft suite in the main house. The suite is very spacious with sauna, steam/shower room with w.c. and basin, sitting room with tv, another toilet and basin, bedroom with free standing bath and basin. The bed was very comfortable and both prosecco and chocolates were included in the deal along with dinner and breakfast. Dinner was in the Devon View Restaurant and it was lovely with the fillet steak being one of the best I have ever had. The restaurant was relatively quiet and the service was excellent but breakfast the following morning was a let down. There were no gluten free cereals available (the restaurant already knew my wife suffered from coeliac), too few staff for the amount of people eating but above all else was the size of the portions - it was the smallest sausage I've ever seen, there was one small rasher of bacon and the poached egg was also the smallest I've ever seen - I left still feeling hungry and when you're spending in excess of £300 for a one night stay they could and should do better.

The hotel was temporarily closed but a group of 12 of us enjoyed a fun round of golf. This is an excellent course in a superb setting with wonderful views. I would have rated it with five stars but the one aspect of the course that lets it down is that there is no first cut just off the fairways. It was a frustrating experience for everyone to hit a reasonable drive, only to find that the ball had rolled just off the fairway and was almost unplayable in long grass. We all enjoyed our visit but it would have been such a low cost solution to have made our trip even more memorable (which would also guarantee a return visit!).

Spent two days at this hotel, looks a lovely place on arrival however Hotel very tired and needs a lot of investment. Our room was very dated but clean. Had a problem as the big house had been closed for a few days and warm water coming out of cold water tap for long time in the bathroom, when trying to clean our teeth. With Covid restrictions in place you did feel safe and the staff were friendly and helpful.

We have visited this hotel several times and know how diligently they are observing current Covid guidelines. Hubby decided we deserved a one night treat as we are quite local and in the same tier. On arrival we discovered that owing to very recent Covid guideline changes the hotel had lost much of its bookings for that night and we were in fact the only guests in the main hotel (although others were elsewhere on site) and that we were the only people booked into the restaurant. Despite that sad fact, all the staff made our stay special and as we have observed before, nothing is too much trouble for them. No detail was lacking although we were the only two to enjoy it. Thank you everyone at Highbullen and we hope it is not too long before we return.

Just the one one night on board - the Loft Suite. The hotel is managing the CV19 restrictions and aligned mitigation measures very well indeed. The infrastructure and cleanliness of our suite was perfect. It really is a nice and welcoming place to stay. Breakfast crispy bacon: the best I've ever eaten. I will be back.
