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...

This gorgeous building is right in the heart of the lovely town. The room that we stayed in was full of character with a comfortable bed and bathroom. Above all it was spotlessly clean and warm. It was also very quiet despite a dinner dance /disco taking place . Breakfast was of a good standard providing a choice of fruit...

Recently I have been travelling a lot due to work type and been staying in few hotels in Hitchin, so definitely have something to compare. Hotel itself is very big, but most of the rooms are not located in main building, well, mine wasn't. The room I had wasn't the biggest for a double room and it was incredibly hot,...

Dear 278olgal, Thank you for your review, we are currently working on a refurbishment scheme so you should see improvements in the bedrooms fairly soon. We do try to reflect the standard of the rooms in the price. I will address the issues with the spider web with our housekeeping team. Emma N Front of House Manager

Sorry this review is long overdue. We had our wedding here in August and absolutely everything was perfect which was down to the fantastic planning by Charlotte. Charlotte is absolutely fantastic, she dealt with all our worries calmly and responded to our emails promptly. On the day Charlotte coordinated everything perfectly. The food served at the wedding breakfast was delicious...

The hotel is in a brilliant location, very close to Hitchin town so it was easy to get the the restaurant and bars. The hotel is very comfortable and clean. The staff were more than helpful, friendly and professional. The manager Stephen went beyond the call of duty in helping my friend. Her too had dropped in a puddle and...

I'd agree with a lot of the previous reviews that the hotel is a little tired, and does need some money spent on it. There's a lot of potential here, but there are better hotels in the area. It's location is very convenient though.

This is a fantastic venue for a wedding. We had our wedding here on 26 November 2016 and it was perfect. We had so many compliments on the venue – it is beautiful and classic just what we were looking for a winter wedding. Charlotte the wedding coordinator is fantastic – nothing is too much trouble for her. In the...

We stayed here as a wedding guest. The venue it self is lovely. The rooms where just the right size and was away from the venue which is nice if you wanted to go to bed early and not be kept up. Breakfast the next morning was tasty. I was offered gluten free toast to go with my breakfast which...
