Stayed here for a week whilst working in the area. The staff are friendly, the place is clean and the bar reasonably priced. The only downside is the lack of a proper restaurant - hence docking one star. The room is ideal for those of us who work away and will be doing paperwork in the evening - a decent... More

This is where I always stop whilst on business in Welwyn Garden City. All the staff are very happy to help. My room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fine. I parked over the road in the Matalan car park which costs £5.

We were very impressed with this hotel. We stayed 2 nights as we were attending a wedding nearby so location was very convenient. Our room was very good, everything in good working order and spotlessly clean. Reception staff were extremely helpful.

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with some of the amenities provided.
