The service was outstanding , the rooms and views were fabulous. The only problem was the parking. It was probably the best B and B in the area Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was great- lot of choice.

Having just returned from a 4night stay at Highcliffe House, I felt I needed to put in writing what a fantastic place to stay, every detail has been thought through from bedroom comfort, to excellent food and service. A special mention to Jason and Neil for their hospitality. Look forward to hopefully returning one day. Cilla Kemp.

This really is a wonderful Guest House. A warm friendly welcome upon arrival, and plenty of local information including walks, restaurants and much more. The room was spotlessly clean, and furnished with flair. Breakfast was a combination of a wonderfully comprehensive buffet with juice, yoghurt, fresh fruit, cereals etc. Followed by a freshly prepared cooked breakfast ( perfect poached eggs)...

I apologise if this review is too full of superlatives, but what do you write about such a wonderful stay ? The prices are not cheap but quite honestly in this case you get what you pay for. Certainly Highcliffe House has to be the best B&B I have ever stayed in. Both the grand old house itself, brilliantly and...

Just come back from a wonderful two day stay. Our experience was totally amazing. The room was very clean and luxurious. The views were second to none.

A long weekend stay in a Bed and Breakfast Hotel in the village of Lynton, Devon was delightful. Highcliffe House is beautifully appointed, perfect in every way and the general atmosphere was so relaxing. The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable, decorated to a high standard and the view from our room, Myrtleberry, was spectacular and breathtaking, From the moment we...

Jason and Neal deserve all the accolades. They have made Highcliffe House a wonderful light airy haven. From the extremely comfortable beds, beautiful bed linen to the extra little touches in all the rooms. Every need is catered for.
