The Highbury was one of 5 that I stayed in on my recent travels, and set the bar very high in comparison, not only to those other 4 B&Bs, but to most that I ever stayed in.
I felt as if I had arrived at a small hotel rather than a guest house. The large house, which is just a few minutes walk from the town center, is lovely and is very spacious.
I received a warm welcome and was shown to an excellent, large single room. The room was clean and comfortable. Tea/coffee making facilities were provided, as well as a TV. There was a computer table and even an armchair, which added to the overall comfort of the room. The room was nicely presented, being decorated in a traditional/cottage style.
The, non-ensuite, private shower room was very good. Shower gels etc were supplied and the modern electric shower worked perfectly.
Breakfast was served in a delightful conservatory and was excellent. The self selection area provided a varieity of cereals, fruit, fruit juices, yogurts, croissants, toast and crumpets. There was also a good choice of cooked food to choose from on the menu. I had the full Welsh breakfast one morning and the smoked haddock on another - both were delicious. The service was efficient and friendly.
One of the best guest houses I have stayed in at this price. Fully recommended.
Room Tip: Rooms at the front face the road, which isn't too busy at night. My room was at the rear, and was very quiet.
