We have been working away with early starts. Firstly the accommodation was clean and tidy,with a very good shower. The room we were in had air con. Breakfast was cooked from scratch good sausages. The chef was very accommodating and got up early two days running to cook us breakfast. We stayed for seven nights and would do so again.

Had a lovely time! Room was lovely perfect for what we needed. A short drive away from Harry Potter. Free parking behind the pub. My only niggle was that we were on the front and it was quite noisy at night. I think the window were single pane. The staff were lovely and the breakfast was gorgeous

The High Street in Hemel has been in need of a revived Olde Kings Arms as a proper public house. This is a revelation! Decent draft beer and lovely French (and other of course) wine by the glass. Music is calm and cool. Thanks to you all. Long waited. Very welcome.

Greeted by friendly staff. The room was quite small but clean and decorated well. The location is in the old town so a short walk from plenty of pubs and restaurants. The pub shuts at 11pm so we both enjoyed a good nights sleep.

The Olde Kings Arms is great value, very welcoming and does a cracking cooked breakfast. Our room was huge and very comfortable and the bathroom lovely. The staff were really friendly and helpful. All at a fantastic price.

I work in Hemel and have stayed at the Olde Kings Arms 3 times before, in a different room each time. Overall, I am impressed with the value for money at the hotel. We used to stay at the Premier Inn Hemel Central, but on some occasions, rooms there were exceeding £100.00 excluding breakfast! So we started looking at other... More

The Olde Kings Arms is a fantastic option for anyone wanting convenience, character and excellent customer service. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean with all the necessities that you need including a lovely shower. The home made food in the pub is also... More

The staff were incredibly friendly and went out there way to help, the room was nice and all the basics were provided. We stayed from Valentines, it is in a good location, the bar was very friendly and if you did not eat at the restaurant there is plenty of choice in the surrounding area. I would stay again, and...

8 ensuite rooms in a very old pub on the high street. Henry V111 stated here. Very helpful staff Powerful and large shower and thick towels. Not the swankiest of rooms but a definite step up from Premier Inn especially when you take into account the lovely bar and good value quality meals. Breakfast was included and cooked to order...
