We recently went to Hitchin Priory for afternoon tea, what an amazing experince this was. First of all we where offered tea in the Library, which our Grandaughter thought was amazing with the hidden door. We where then given precessco, tea and coffee followed by amazing home made sandwiches, cakes and scones. As I have coeliacs and have to have...

I know this place is considered to be a hotel, but I think it may be rather more than that. Obviously it is well-known as a popular wedding venue and also hosts a number of business conferences and meetings. It certainly boasts a great location. Just on the outskirts of Hitchin town centre, but go outside the back doors and...

We booked the Hitchin Priory Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was such a wonderful experience and was very thought out. The restaurant room was intimate, with a charming atmosphere. The tables were decorated beautifully, the food was lovely and the service was very attentive – the right measure of friendliness and professionalism. Well done The Priory, we had...

Such massive hopes for staying here. Certainly an eye opener. So many flaws. The only way we got through our stay was laughing uncontrollably. We arrived. Sat in the bar for a good ten minutes before someone responded tho the bell on the bar.(not sure if working) We looked through the menus and decided to eat in the restaurant. With...

Went for new years eve bash. It cost 115pppn with dinner and dance so a good price. Food and drink - nice for the price, you get what you pay for. The scallops were not fresh and rubbery. The beef was good. I would score the food 3 out 5. Accommodation - 3 star, had all that I needed in...
