We have been a couple of times now and the food is great, although a little pricey, you get what you pay for. The owners are very involved and attentive and the staff a excellent, so much so, we've booked our wedding here!

Excellent venue. Went here for recent business offsite. Staff were very helpful, couldn't do enough for us. It's not a traditional conference/meeting venue so the meeting room has a mezanine bedroom and the projector sat on a table (they removed a picture to show the images) however that added to it's charm. Food was great, tasty and plentiful. Staff were... More

My wife and I stayed at Coltsfoot last Monday/Tuesday night - what a great place! We had drinks and a lovely dinner for 4 on Monday evening, and it could hardly have been better. We're an ex-Stevenage couple who discovered the escape route many years ago, so you can expect us back next time there's a local "family-do" to attend... More

Wonderful venue, accommodating staff, superb food in a stunning location. True professionalism! Jenny and Richard did their utmost to ensure everything went smoothly for this surprise event. Their staff worked so hard so that all guests had a wonderful afternoon and couldn't speak highly enough of this memorable day.

I discovered this place through word of mouth and now stay there on a regular basis when i'm away on business. An absolutely delightful place to stay, surrounded by countryside. The food is consistently good, and each room has character (i've stayed in most of them!). All topped off with great service from a lovely team of staff. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed here for Valentine's Day and I can't praise it enough. The place is beautiful, the rooms are huge with a lovely bathroom and the views are amazing. So much attention to detail-even an umbrella as the restaurant is across the courtyard. Lovely big bathrobes, huge comfy bed, underfloor heating (amazing!) lots of wardrobe space should... More

I was at this hotel from 2 to 4 February 2015 for a business trip. The place is fascinating and and the people are very friendly and kind. All resembles antique and fascinating, lost in the countryside of Hertforshire. The rooms are amazing: all in red bricks, antique wooden beams and décor. The restaurant offers a few dishes tasty and... More

We went for a romantic getaway near London, and this place fitted the bill perfectly. The room we had was fantastic, food in the restaurant was excellent. All in all, a very enjoyable stay with friendly, attentive staff, in a beautiful setting.

We stayed here in November 2014 to celebrate a milestone birthday, and despite appalling weather we had a lovely time. The setting is everything you hope for based on the website, and provided a relaxing backdrop to our little family get together and dinner. The rooms are lovely - rustic and in keeping with being barn conversions rather than chic/urban... More

I had my wedding here in July 2014 and cannot recommend it enough. Helen, the wedding planner helped with everything in the run up and on the day itself to ensure that everything went smoothly. It is a gorgeous venue which guarantees exclusivity so that you and your wedding guests are the only ones using the venue on your wedding... More
