Breakfast at Highgrove House Hotel

After enjoying an incredible dinner at Highgrove House we knew we were in for a treat with breakfast, which we were incredibly excited about because as you know we love breakfast. As the hotel only had 8 rooms breakfast was a lovely quiet affair with relaxing music and attentive staff.

At this hotel there is a small buffet and then the option to pick your hot dish from the menu.
The buffet consistent of croissants, pain au chocolate, yoghurt and granola, fresh berries, fresh fruit salad and a selection of cereals. There was also a jug of milk and a jug of orange juice.

The waitress also offered us tea or coffee, of course we opted for coffee, which was delicious! We also asked for a jug of tap water which was ice cold and infused with lemon slices.

There was a large selection on the hot menu with choices such as the big breakfast, lighter breakfast, veggie breakfast, scrambled egg on toast, porridge, French toast, hot croissant and jam. It was hard to decide what to go for as the big breakfast sounded incredible, however in the end Annie opted for the scrambled egg with hot Scottish smoked salmon and Rach went for the French toast.

The French toast came with 4 large slices with a generous pot of maple syrup and 2 rashers of bacon. The toast was fluffy and cooked to perfection (Rach always worries about this as she doesn’t actually like egg!). The French toast is definitely a dish we would recommend if you visit Highgrove House and it only costs £4.75 that is a bargain!

The smoked salmon was really tasty and Annie doesn’t often have it hot but it made a nice change. The eggs were cooked to perfection and were seasoned perfectly, the menu did say it would be served on toast but mine didn’t come with toast (maybe because we ordered toast on the side). The smoked salmon and scrambled egg was priced at £6.50 which again we thing is incredible!

We sat inside as it was early morning and wasn’t warm enough yet, but we can imagine in the height of summer the tables outside will be lovely. You don’t necessarily have to stay at the hotel to enjoy the breakfast as the sign outside shows breakfast is from 9-noon. If you are in the area this is the perfect place for a delicious breakfast.

Highgrove House Hotel Review in Ayrshire

Highgrove House hotel is a beautiful house located in Ayrshire on the outskirts of Troon. Highgrove House Hotel was incredible and we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay ourselves, we thoroughly enjoyed our final night in Scotland (Ayrshire).

Highgrove house is part of the Costley & Costley group which was founded in 1988 by Bill and Cath Costley. Since 1988 they have built up a business and now have four award-wining country house hotels. Highgrove House has a special place in their hearts as it was the first hotel in the Costley group.

Highgrove House is located on a hilltop overlooking miles of coastlines across the firth of Clyde and to the Isle of Arran. We particular enjoyed the views during the evening when the sun was setting as it was a beautiful sunny day.

There are eight individually decorated bedrooms complete with en-suite bathrooms at Highgrove House. We were in bedroom number one which was located at the top of the stairs. The room was luxurious and had all the facilities we needed including TV (with Sky), Hairdryer, tea and coffee (which took us a while to find it was tucked away in a cupboard).

The bedroom was a good size with two single beds, arm chairs and a chest of drawers. We loved the decoration of the room it was very countrified and we immediately felt at home.

The en-suite bathroom was ginormous, we could have had a party in there! It has a shower, bath and double sink. We loved the shower products they provided they smelt great and the shower cap came in handy when we didn’t want to wash our hair.

We arrived at Highgrove house in the late afternoon, unpacked and made our way down to the outside terrace. We enjoyed some rose Whilst sitting outside in the evening sun watching the sun starting to go down. The wine was delicious and we liked the fact we could order a jug Instead of a bottle.

We chatted on the terrace for ages it was so peaceful and the waiter came out every so often to Check we had everything we needed.

Highgrove House is renowned for its cuisine which was evident to see as the restaurant was full all afternoon with customers enjoying Sunday lunch. The restaurant sells seafood, steak dishes, along with home-made ice creams and chocolates. We have written a post all about the restaurant (it really does deserve a post of its own) at Highgrove House which we will be posting soon.

We also have to mention the breakfast because it was absolutely delicious. We will also be posting a separate blog post all about it so stay tuned.

The staff a Highgrove House were incredibly polite and always on hand to help. They really do take pride in ensuring everyone is happy during their stay or visit.

The hotel is only 2 miles away from Troon and on Sunday morning we decided to go for a run. It didn’t take very long at all and you can definitely walk there.

It’s was nice to stay in the countryside overlooking the town of Troon but also be able to easily access the town without having to get a taxi. It as a lovely run and very picturesque!
