There are so many positive reviews it's hard to contribute anything much extra, so this will read more like a summary. The location is close enough to town to be an easy walk, just the right distance to help the digestive process after dinner. Because Margaret and Cyril are friendly and caring people, that feeling permeates the house and provides...

Having read the other reviews there is little I could add. There is nothing more you could want. Good sized,well decorated and clean rooms. Excellent breakfast experience. The hosts Margaret & Cyril are so proficient at what they do they should run courses to train others. Would always look for the Highgate if I was needing a stay in the...

Stayed for two nights while visiting friends in the area. Our first visit here, and we were impressed with the welcome we rceived, including cakes made by Margaret. We found Margaret and Cyril extremely friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean and tidy, with everything we needed. The weather was hot, so we didn't need the electric blankets...

Margaret and Cyril are the most friendly people you could ever hope to meet. Clean, comfortable, well maintained, excellent, plentiful and varied breakfast. Margaret does her own baking and there is something to sample waiting in your room each day. Really enjoyed ourselves while we were there.

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us as we enjoyed your company. Hope all went well in Shrewsbury and you managed to get around OK on public transport. Thank you very much for your kind review and glad the cakes went down well. By the way, there's something you left behind coming in the post for you.

Margaret and Cyril and warm and inviting hosts who have renovated this quiet B&B in boutique hotel style. I do not hesitate to recommend people to stay here. Due to the welcome, and accommodation, Highgate House is busy year round, often with repeat visitors. I use Highgate House for my own visitors and guests and recommend it for customers too.

Thank you so much for your review and so pleased you use us for your family and business guests.We do have many guests who return, and we take that as our biggest compliment. We only have three rooms so get booked up quite quickly, especially at weekends in the summer so as you say, please book early!!
