Reviewed 15 January 2024 via mobile

We visited in early January after spending a week in a lovely game lodge. We had imagined a relaxing place where we could read our books in a beautiful environment sitting by the pool and relaxing in the garden.

Unfortunately, it was the rainy season and the hotel is unforunatley located in a hollow where the subtropical garden takes away most of the light and any views. The pool and pool area are not well maintained and we were unable to find anywhere to comfortably relax feeling very hemmed in.

We are lovers of small boutique hotels, but unfortunately, Highgrove was just too old fashioned for us.

Tracy, Johlene and the rest of the staff are extremely helpful and very friendly but could not make up our sense of disappointment. We checked out early losing the money we had paid, but luckily turned our holiday around by finding much better surroundings to enjoy the remainder of our holiday.

Room tip: Avoid in wet season

We spent 8 nights at Highgrove House and I couldn't fault anything. The suite we stayed in was spacious, decor stunning and one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in. Breakfast was a delight with plenty of choice. Dinner was an event, a different menu each night after canapés in bar. The chef had been there for 25yrs and loved her job as showed in the quality of the food, 5 courses made from home grown and locally sourced produce.
I think the real highlight of the stay was the managers and staff, nothing was to much bother always there to help give advice on local attractions.
A huge thanks and well done to Tracy and Johlene and all staff there, we had a fantastic stay.

This was our second visit to this beautiful little boutique hotel set in the middle of a macadamia nut/ avocado farm.
We were lucky enough to stay in the executive suite which is a large luxurious suite with its own pool and sauna. The attention to detail is excellent and they literally anticipate your needs. The food is sublime and the resident chef Thelma is a culinary wizard!!! The manager and staff Tracy and Jolene are hugely attentive and very entertaining. I can’t fault them on anything and look forward to our next stay.

Room tip: Leave your diet at home and enjoy

Our experience at Highgrove House was wonderful. The accommodations were beautiful and well-kept. The setting is a lovely garden in the center of a macadamia nut and avocado farm. The managers and staff were gracious and very accommodating. Tracy drove us around part of the panoramic route herself when the driver of our group fell ill. The food was outstanding. I would highly recommend this lodging.
