Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Second stay at this lovely hotel rooms lovely, breakfast good hotel lovely and clean. Excellent location right in centre of Hereford City. There is a cocktail bar located in the hotel but on both occasions it has been closed even though the second visit was on a Thursday and Friday night stay. Food and drinks quite expensive and not much atmosphere in the bar.

This hotel is in a great location with easy access to the cathedral, bars, cafes and restaurants. Inside there is a modern and attractive bar, restaurant and cafe. The rooms were traditional and there were lots of original features which was fabulous. Staff were really friendly. Beds and pillows were good quality and extremely comfortable.

Quite frankly, one of the worst city centre hotels in which I’ve stayed. Unfortunately I had no choice. Rooms were humdrum and the headboard yellowed with years of no maintenance. Breakfast minimal with the excuse for no provision of a croissant being health and safety. I’ve been in the health and safety business for over 40 years and never heard that one!

Come on Green Dragon Hotel! We have been visiting this beautiful hotel in central Hereford for over 45 years. It has always been welcoming and friendly, with smiling staff and kindness. Where has this gone? Not one smile or friendly communication today...customer service was sadly appalling. Staff need to welcome people into their hotel, smile and chat to them! (It wasn't busy at all so this was not the reason.) There are plenty of other places to go and Hereford is a very small place to treat customers poorly. Please, please train or hire staff that make one enjoy the experience in this lovely hotel.

Called in for lunch. Very limited menu and uninterested counter only service. Made selection of sandwiches from extremely limited choice. Nothing available to go with sandwiches so we added a bag of crisps and paid as required at the counter. Selected a table and when we were sitting noticed that the bowl of sugar cubes was stained with tea or coffee; the carpet surroundings the table was stained and crumb strewn; the table had not been wiped between customers. The sandwiches arrived and were ok, nothing more. However, they were each accompanied a pile of crisps! We would have appreciated being advised of this before wr purchased a packet of crisps to go with the sandwiches. No atmosphere, poor service, poor menu choice, grubby and worn, not good value. There are mu h better places in Hereford for a light lunch.

Farnworth, United Kingdom57 contributions34 helpful votes
Came here on a business trip, was impressed with the hotel being a mix of traditional and modern in terms of decor, with the service feeling more like a 4/5 star hotel. The hotel itself has been renovated fairly recently and it shows. The room itself was ok, bed was soft and comfortable, modern TV with all UK channels available on Freeview (though it could use a rescan as it still had old channels like RT which are now blank). However, the radiator did not turn off despite me trying to change the dials, but this was remedied by opening the windows to let cool air in. Still, this wasn't ideal, and as there was no phone in the room, I was unable to call down, and didn't want to get dressed again to walk down to the desk. The shower was also a little old fashioned (2 taps and a lever to switch the flow to the shower), and the sink barely let any cold water out bar a dribble. However, toiletries were provided and the look of the bathroom was high-class. Breakfast was an experience, as you were asked to wait and were shown to your table. The variety of the buffet was good, and the service was impeccable as usual. Location is fantastic as it's very centrally located, with supermarkets and restaurants very close by, although the town itself seems to get very quiet after 5pm, but that isn't the fault of the hotel. Overall it's a decent hotel for the cost and its clear there is a lot of love going into the hotel, with the aim to make it classic in both look and service. If not for the issues with the radiator and shower, this would get 5 stars, and I have booked to come again in a few weeks, so hope I can have a better experience then.

Very disappointed, the room was very tired and the decor very dark and needed redecoration. The radiator did not work and was very loud during the night, which we should have realized having a small oil filled radiator in the room. The bathroom was not acceptable needs redoing before anybody else stays dirty and old. Beds were comfortable. The front of house looks ok. The lift was old and dirty. For £160 for two nights was a joke, will not be returning.

Went to the Mamma Mia event at the weekend. I just loved it. The venue was decorated brilliantly, the welcome was great, food very in line with the theme and the atmosphere was so much fun. Loved being able to order drinks prior to event. A great event. We were very well looked after by the excellent staff and it was super seeing them have a little dance at the end- my my how could they resist ?

Booked a afternoon/evening event at The Green Dragon with a group of friends for the SOLD OUT Mamma Mia event on 24th February 2024 👌 The whole event from strat to finish was absolutely brilliant, the attention to detail was flawless, a cocktail on arrival 🍹 we were shown to the offa bar, again lovely attentive staff all very happy to be there. The event it's self was so much fun, the entertainment staff were all amazing (singing along to all the well know AbbA songs). We had a beautiful range of food, all perfectly presented and very tasty, plenty of drinks to choose from and a free shot of Ouzo (for the wedding scene😂). I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun get together with friends, to choose any event by The Green Dragon Hotel 👌 Thank You to all the staff for making it a memorable occasion.
