The Chef

Mark came to Highlands after many years of training and working with the best. His range of culinary delights is expansive and will suit all tastes. Highlands has suggested menus and welcome any input when requesting mealtime bookings. Mark also prepares all meals and snacks for conferences and private meals, other than those taken by guests staying at Highlands. To book for your private party, arrangements can be made through reception.

Breakfast patio

Highlands is always flooded by natural light, made available from large, long sash windows and doors opening onto the surrounding patios and expansive garden. Because Highlands lies in a very sheltered area, most meals, for long periods of time during the year, can be taken outside overlooking the lush lawns and putting green on the East side and from the breakfast conservatory overlooking the Italian garden and fountain on the South side.

Private Conservatory

Highlands has areas other than the dining room where guests can take breakfast, lunch, tea or supper. The Conservatory is one of these, shown here during the day. This area is private from the main house and when set at night with our finest silver and candles, looking over the pool and garden, are without doubt the most romantic setting for intimate entertaining.

Elegant boardroom

Our boardroom is designed for a maximum of 12 delegates. It was originally the dining room of Sir Herbert Baker's home. It still boasts the original pressed ceilings, floors and large fireplace, which still burns today. All the necessary equipment is supplied with the added bonus that there are beautiful breakaway areas such as the lounge, library, Colonial sitting room and sunroom all included in our conferencing rate.
