    My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night - we had room 6 which was on the top and up two flights of narrow stairs. The room itself was delightful with a big and comfortable bed and olde worlde furniture. The bath / shower is effectively part of the room (no door) which adds a quirky touch and the toliet is behind a frosted glass door so if you are after privacy in these areas then its not the place for you.

    The shower area needs some attention as the water squirts in all directions and soaks the floor.

    The breakfast in the morning was fantastic - I had the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, it came freshly made and I can honestly say that I have never had better than this. The staff were friendly and attentive which made the Sunday morning extremely enjoyable.

    We stayed for saturday night in one of the luxury rooms,four poster bed was really comfy with a free standing bath at the end. The toilet area wasn't very private as had glass door to it, but we werent bothered by it. Had dinner in the restaurant which was very busy and very nice. Staff were pleasant, and breakfast was delicious. The church bells ring just outside the room at 9 in the morning so if you like a lie-in you might be dissapointed!

    Colleagues and myself had cause to stay at the Wellington Hotel earlier this week. We often stay away on business and to be honest you can get a little tired with the mundane breakfasts that some hotels serve. The Wellington has certainly broken the mould. All of the food is prepared fresh to order. No dried up eggs and bacon here but the most scrumptious scrambled eggs and smoked salmon served on a toasted muffin. The eggs were light and creamy and no skimping on the salmon. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the Chef (Martin ) took the time to enquire if the breakfasts were to our taste. The answer was a resounding YES! A great way to set you up for a day at work.

    Just returned from a 5 week trip to the UK - atrocious weather but a gem of a boutique hotel/restaurant to report.

    We were invited by friends to spend New Years Eve at The Wellington, in Welwyn, Hertfordshire, about 30 miles north of London just off the A1M. Directly opposite the church in the 'olde worlde' village - bells and snow were an ideal setting for our stay.

    The Wellington dates back to 1352 so tradition oozed from every wood-wormed beam and red brick fireplace, however recent refurbishment has added a comtemporary flavour which blended superbly into the warm, comfortable, welcoming environment.

    Each of the six bedrooms was unique with four-poster beds, slipper baths and fireplaces complementing the excellent accommodations which were provided at a very reasonable price.

    The food - a five course meal, highlighted by perfectly cooked and presented duck breast plus the most memorable cheese board ever seen, showed that the chef and staff were both imaginative as well as talented. Full English breakfast (complementary) rounded out a wonderful stay.

    Throughout, the management and staff were simply the best. Enthusiastic, obviously proud of The Wellington, they were always professional, prompt, knowledgeable and welcoming. Whilst being a younger team, their age belied their experience and the highest level of service.

    We were so impressed we returned for a follow up visit for lunch. Again, everything lived up to our expectations. The welcome was warm, the service exceptional and the pork tenderloin main course was delicious - perfectly cooked, uniquely presented, complemented by a Provence Rose - roaring fire - it doesn't come any better.

    The Wellington was by far the best of the trip. Great food, special accommodations and very good value all delivered in an historic setting by a truly commendable team.

    Can't wait to return.

    We have been to the Wellington many times for lunch and dinner and the food is always amazing, however last time it was exceptional!

    The new specials are to die for especially the scallops! The staff are friendly and efficient and very knowledgeable about the menu and lovely d'arenberg wines.

    I would definitely recommend this friendly gastropub to everyone, a little gem in Old Welwyn, make sure you leave enough room for the delicious brownie!!!
