“Magical Weekend”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

It was a pleasure to stay at Number One Port Hill. Annie was a great host and made us feel very welcome to her well run and exceptionally clean B&B. Attention to detail exceeded expectations from fresh milk, fresh flowers, bathrobes and slippers and a decent hair dryer to the excellent range of toiletries and refreshments including sweets and biscuits. Breakfast was excellant and freshly cooked from local produce. It truly was a magical place with all the fairy lights and exquisite decor. Thank you will defiantly recommend.

We couldn't believe our luck to find this glorious gem of a place in Hertford. It was lit up with gorgeous twinkling lights when we returned from a wedding and the area felt completely safe and secure. Annie certainly knows how to look after guests and we could have stayed much longer in her spotless home, enjoying all of its comforts. She has a great deal more candles than I do, but the warmth of the place, the many thoughtful touches and the quality of her welcome made us both feel really at home.

This gorgeous B&B was recommended to us for an overnight stay and we loved everything about it - the beautiful room, which was spotlessly clean and well appointed, the bathroom spacious and modern - the attention to detail is faultless from the bed linen to the jar of pretzels. Breakfast was delicious too... Next time we visit Hertford we will definitely be staying again!

My wife and I had a wonderful time, we really enjoyed the breakfast! Annie was brilliant, always cheery and helpful. The room was beautiful and had everything required for some much needed rest and relaxation. Highly recommended.

My mum and I spent one night in this beautiful house whilst visiting family in Hertford. The moment we stepped through the door, Annie was wonderfully welcoming, made sure that we had everything we needed, and it was clear that she had made an exceptional effort in ensuring that we felt comfortable during our stay. The house is exquisitely decorated, and was at the height of cleanliness. The room was fantastic, incredibly comfy bed and beautiful ensuite. Lots of little extras, such as the lovely toiletries and the tea, coffee, biscuits and sweets in the room, reflected Annie’s attention to detail and really made the already extra special stay even better. In the morning, breakfast was fantastic, eating in a gorgeous dining room, and everything cooked fresh for when you arrived downstairs. There were also lots of lovely cereals, fresh juices and jams on offer. We had a lovely time during our stay and will definitely be visiting again! Thank for making us feel so welcome in your lovely home.

What a wonderful anniversary weekend we had at this beautiful B&B. Breathtaking from the moment we were welcomed in, this impressive house wowed us with Annie's sense of design and thoughtful touches. Fresh milk for tea was offered on arrival, the bathroom was stocked with luxury toiletries, and Annie's breakfasts were first-class. It was so calming and restorative, we'll be sure to return. Well done Annie, a real gem.
