This place is a little gem, only stayed one night as we were visiting our daughter at boarding school for an evening function nearby. A wonderful welcome by Annie the owner of the B&B. Annie couldn’t do enough to help and check that all was fine for us. Annie helped and arranged our taxi for the evening (Foxhole taxi’s –...

The most relaxing night I have had in months, Number One Port Hill is wonderful, everything is beautifully appointed and you are made to feel comfortable and at home. Very peaceful, quiet and a place to slow down and unwind. I can't wait to visit again!

My grown up children and I attended a local wedding and wanted to stay somewhere special. Visually it ticked many boxes...lots of sparkly things and great staged charm. Good location, close to the town. Would I be tempted to go again?...for us...no not really, it was good but our preference would be for more personal warmth.

The charming county town of Hertford (close to where I was born) has not changed dramatically since my halcyon days as a youngster I am pleased to say. Its streets are attractively packed with an immense variety of shops, businesses & emporiums. Traffic is, and has always been, abundant to say the least and seems the only thing that can...

This B&B was an absolute treat. My wife and I were visiting the area for a wedding nearby and stayed here for 1 night.

I went to number one for a pop up restaurant evening. It was excellent. Annie and Emily and rest of their staff run an excellent 'ship" and will definitely be returning. I would also o highly recommend the bed and breakfast as I have heard such positive good reports from people who have had guests stay there.
