What a gorgeous place to stay. I'm sure everything's been said before but the thing that struck me was Annie's immaculate attention to detail. Door knobs, light pulls, stair rods, everything in the fabulous No.1 Porthill is deliberately and lovingly placed. We stayed in Room 1 which was so luxurious. I just melted into the bed after a post-walk snooze... More

I would highly recommend Number One Port Hill we stayed there for a wedding in Hertford this weekend and it was delightful. Annie is welcoming and gracious host with a charming property. The rooms are clean and tidy with all the creature comforts you might need. Breakfast in the opulent dining room was expertly cooked with fresh ingredients and all... More

A part of me didn't want to write a review as I wanted to keep No. 1 Port Hill, Annie & Presley a secret all to myself… but then I saw that others had discovered this oasis of luxury, peace and the world of nothing's a problem land… damn and blast! So, as the lid's off, what can I add?... More

I cannot fault our stay at Number One Port Hill. It was exceptional in so many ways. Annie is the most incredible lady I have met for a long time. Like a previous reviewer, I struggle to find enough superlatives to describe how wonderful Number One Port Hill is. Annie has thought of everything. Her attention to detail is second... More

It is hard to find superlatives to describe the enjoyment of staying at Number One Port Hill as guests of Annie and Presley. Suffice to say that I found the first visit to be superb, and my second was equally marvellous. Annie's attention to detail, both in the surroundings and the thoughtfulness given to guests' wellbeing is excellent - a... More

Annie provides an excellent service in beautiful surroundings. I loved her farm fresh breakfasts which were cooked to perfection and exactly at the time you requested. She offers such a wide range of choices in food and toiletries too!

A Versailles of mirrors, a colony of candles, a glitter of glass and lights that can be seen from space Number One Port Hill is something different from the run-of-the-mill B&B. Three rooms sit on the top floor of a Georgian corner house 2 minutes walk from the centre of Hertford provide an ideal and comfortable base for those visiting... More

After a long flight from the west coast of Canada this was exactly what we needed. Lovely accommodation and a gracious host. We had the larger room with the terrific bathroom across the hall but strictly ours. Outstanding breakfasts in an elegant setting, and the special order kippers were to die for. . It was also nice to have access... More

Thanks Annie (and Presley) for our lovely weekend break. Very comfortable bed, and we loved all the little extras that you provided. The place was spotless, you must work extremely hard to maintain that level of cleanliness. Brigitte and Martin

Very warm reception and helpful response to some bicycle problems we had. Wonderful accommodation, just as you see it on-line. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice in a stunning dining room. We hope to return one day.
