This is, in some ways, a great little find. Hidden away among the quiet backstreets of Asylum Down, the 33-room Highgate is a property with the kind of down-at-home character that many of its slicker, larger competitors lack (although it could do with a bit of TLC in some rooms). The accommodation is generally spacious (they differ, ask to see the rooms first), while the wood-panelled bar serves as a perfect refuge after a day in the heat. If you’re after internet access there’s a cable hook-up in each room, although the complimentary wireless is sporadic. Service is friendly but not particularly snappy or accomplished. A free shuttle bus service runs to and from the airport). A good option for this area.
