Everything is catered for ,every room is lovely and individual. If you... More

What a wonderful establishment! Nothing is too much trouble for host Annie, who will go to every length to assure your comfort. The rooms are elegant and comfortable, with sumptuous towels, gowns, and toiletries. Breakfast is beautifully served in the sophisticated dining room, and is fresh and artistically presented. Cannot rate this hotel highly enough.

How kind of you to write such a wonderful review - thank you so much. I am so pleased that our master Room 1 made your holiday even more special though I am sure your Dordogne trip will totally surpass here! Looking forward to seeing you again next week and again in June! Marvellous! x More

Stayed at this beautiful, elegant hotel while visiting friends. All of the rooms are sumptuously gorgeous and Annie can't do enough to make sure you're comfortable. So many lovely little touches in the rooms mean there is really no need that isn't met in a stylishly quirky way. We will certainly be back!

Absolutely lovely rooms, house is exquisite and Jane is wonderful.. I would highly reccomend this gem to anybody and everybody! We will most certainly be back. Breakfast - the healthy option was on a different level, absolutely delicious , I wish I could head there every morning for a breakfast like that..

Annie is wonderfully welcoming and a stay in her home is truly a dream experience. The decoration is fantastic, beautifully eclectic, magically layered, sumptuous and spotlessly clean! Annie is a lovely host who puts guests at their ease, is attentive but leaves you space to unwind and enjoy your stay. We chose Hertford and No 1 by chance as a... More

We cannot thank Annie enough for our stay at Number one Port Hill, everything about it is truly beautiful; the rooms, the breakfast, the atmosphere, Presley and Annie, herself! Firstly you're greeted by a quaint and pretty garden, followed by a grand and inviting entrance, sweets and goodies included! Annie then did a tour of the rooms and took us... More

We usually stay in London as we don't live too far from Hertford but my partner decided she wanted to stay somewhere local for Valentines evening.

Welcomed by Annie the owner and at once felt at home and relaxed. The accommodation was good, full of nice touches such as sweets, pretzels, a large variety of coffee and additional nice touches a shaving pack in the bathroom and tooth paste and brush. Cool décor and additional bits and bobs around the room that other places don't bother... More

We stayed here in September of a couple of nights, initially we thought it was expensive, however the reviews and photographs encouraged us to try it and we were glad we did.
