We stayed for one night which was a lovely experience. The rooms were great with a fantastic shower. The food was fab (evening meal and breakfast) and the staff were so helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

We stopped by at the Olde Kings Head on a quick afternoon visit to Hemel old town. A lovely old pub and hotel which was very welcoming. We just had coffee, ales and pudding - all were very good and the staff were excellent too! They even had a small local craft stall at the rear in the hotel part.... More

I went here with friends for a pre Christmas meal. Due to a misunderstanding, we were unable to eat from the Christmas menu, as we hadn't preordered & so we ordered from the bar menu. There was a good choice, I had halloumi salad, followed by five spice pork. The salad was delicious, lots of interesting salad leaves, a good... More

I stayed in the hotel on business last month after researching the cheapest hotels in Hemel. Well worth the cost! I felt comfortable and welcome, like popping into your local. However I did pay £18 for two gin and tonics?!?! Could buy a bottle for that much! But the room was nice, very large and the shower was amazing. Fixtures... More

However, gentlemen at the desk/bar was super friendly and extremely helpful Not only explained to me my options in town I did not know but also did let me use his laptop to search and book alternative accommodation. Brilliant customer service... More

The room was very clean , bed comfortable. Had a lovely lunch & evening meal in the friendly pub at reasonable rates though breakfast was not a full English one as stated. Was brought up in the area and the atmosphere remains the same which is good.
