Thank you for your kind review and I hope you both had a good holiday, after the misfortune of missing your flight! I am pleased we were able to accommodate you at such short notice and you enjoyed visiting St. Albans and Stockwood Park in Luton while you stayed with us.

After reading TripAdvisor comments we decided to choose The Old Forge as the one of the best B&B in Luton Airport area. Stayed one night with my husband in the upper en-suite room. Very much liked absolute cleanliness of the bathroom as if it was brand new and we were the first users, couldn't find any dirty spot at all, everything was sparkling. Towels were also good and soft, the shower gel was of good quality.
Kath and Roger were very friendly despite our late check-in at around 11 at night. Before bed Kath kindly suggested us a small jar of milk that was just in time after our exhausting and delayed flight.
The english breakfast was very neat, good looking and appetizing. It was comfortable to sit in the lunch room and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and decoration of the room. The living room was very tidy and good looking as well. We really enjoyed home atmosphere.
The one minus was that the floor in our bedroom was making squeaky sound every single step we took and the bed was a bit small and very high. The room was very cosy, but not very spacious. I would tell these are minor disadvantages if to compare with very friendly service and cleanness and neatness of the whole house. I would highly recommend this B&B to all those who value cleanliness and good attitude before anything else.

Thank you so much for taking the time for writing such a detailed review. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and you found everything to a high standard, despite the squeaky floorboards! It was lovely to meet you both and we hope you had a great time visiting London. I found the recipe book very interesting and that was such a kind gesture - thank you.

I was walking the Ridgeway / Ickneild Way, from Princes Risborough to Hitchin, and this was a great place to stop. Very kind, friendly hosts who welcomed me into their home, gave me a beautiful, comfortable room and an excellent breakfast. The place really is exceptional.

Thank you for your kind comments and for taking the time to write a review. I am so pleased the weather was so good and you were able to enjoy walking the Ickneild Way which is beautiful. I have replenished my first-aid kit, so I am all prepared for anyone in need of a plaster, etc. in the future!

Booked in for 6 month Mon to Thurs, never had anything to complain about. Always spotless, warm and welcoming and a good varity of 'suprise me' breakfasts which can be an issue when on a long stay.

Many thanks Roger and Cath for looking after me.

We stayed one night to break the journey home north from Heathrow airport. A lovely characterful B&B and would thoroughly recommend it. Small, cosy, welcoming, spotlessly clean, very peaceful and an excellent breakfast. Just 45mins from Heathrow and easy to drive to off the M1. We will certainly be staying again and will recommend it to all our friends.

We have just stayed 4 nights at the The Old Forge as we were escaping from the builders in our house! We arrived rather stressed and were immediately put at ease by the very friendly and warm welcome. The room was excellent and great attention to detail was evident. The breakfast was everything you could wish for. A big thank you to Cath for 'going' the extra mile' and being so helpful when my husband was feeling unwell. Thank you both for a very restful respite.

Room Tip: We had the Kingham room which was ensuite.

thKath and Roger have a beautiful home where we spent three nights in an immaculately presented room: large comfortable bed; excellent ensuite; easy to access wifi; tea/coffee making; and plenty of space for cases and clothes. We slept very well with good heating and no noise, and were provided with a delicious cooked breakfast each morning. We enjoyed chatting with Kath and learning about the history of the house and the area. We chose a B&B over larger, more impersonal accommodation and were very pleased that we took the time and trouble to do so.
