We stayed 3 nights as part of our visit to Harry Potter studios and London. Fantastic food and service throughout the stay; great luxury pub menu, lovely Sunday roast and cooked breakfast each morning. Parking can be difficult, but that was the only negative of our stay.

Stayed one night to visit Harry Potter studios nearby and to visit London the next day. Ideally located for both and an excellent price. Free parking & good food. Brilliant service from Eliot. We will certainly stay there again.

Bed was comfy - Room 5 - everything worked. Food was good, nice wines etc. Elliott helped with the wifi - you have to... More

We arrived late at the hotel having flown in from Spain, where we live. The owner Elliott stayed up to let us in and we were able to have a drink. We found him very helpful throughout our five night stay, other staff also very polite and friendly. We had cooked breakfast every morning during our stay which was also... More

Having sampled the hospitality elsewhere in Hemel, I have to say that, for the money, this is simply one of the best bnbs I have experienced. .The shower (twin headed tempest of a beast!) Was just what I needed after my day at work..The room was spacious and the teabags were excellent! (It's the small things u know!) The menu... More

Excellent stay! We stayed on the 12th July 2014 in room 1. Small room but this didn't bother us as it had everything we needed. The bed was very comfy and everything was clean. We ate here for lunch and breakfast and both times the food was outstanding! Excellent customer service and really good location! Definitely would recommend and stay... More

Nice quiet pub - no TV screens (you can get those next door) so we had a lovely chilled time. Staff were very friendly and the landlord couldn't do enough. Food was good too. Thoroughly recommend it. Bit hard to find car park so go PAST the high street and take the next left and the road will bring you... More
