Having just spent 5 nights on a business trip from the US at the Old Cock Inn I can absolutely recommend staying here. I am a Brit who lives in the US and have stayed at many BandBs before. I arrived on a Sunday afternoon and was quickly checked in and given a review of the room and facilities. I was in Room 5 at the rear of the property, that was very quiet, had plenty of storage room etc and an excellent bathroom. Travelling alone there was plenty of comfortable space. The room was clean and plenty of towels etc and a daily clean up service was nice just to keep things tidy. The rooms are entered via a house next door to the pub...this was nice as you get your own key and thus are free to come and go as you please.
Breakfast was basically served as and when requested...no pressure to be there at a certain time, just drop in and give your order. The full English was awesome...no need for lunch after that! Also had some local business colleagues join me for breakfast and they were very impressed. WiFi was available and was quick and easy to access in the room and in the pub.
Located in the center of Harpenden within a two minute walk there were 2 grocery stores, a liquor store, newsagent and the main local high street retail stores. That and multiple restaurants to choose from....everything was convenient and very good quality. The pub food was also great if you wanted to stay in.
Rick and the bar staff were great, very friendly and accommodating and always making sure you had everything you need......even for this "fake" American!!
I have stayed at several other hotels etc in the area and quite simply after this experience will be back again.
Great job everyone!!!...and thank you all for a great stay.
