The Olde Kings Arms is centrally located in a nice part of town in the old part of Hemel Hempstead on the High Street and next to Gadebridge Park. The bedroom was very small with hardly any room either side of the bed. Our visit was okay but could have been nicer due to those little touches in hotels that... More

We found this on line and weren't disappointed. An old coaching Inn, it is exactly that, the room was en suite, clean, beds were super comfortable, staff friendly, one of the best English breakfasts we have ever had. Good value, would recommend.

I am writing this review because of the treatment received on my recent visit to the pub - not the hotel. The owner was absolutely disgusting. We ordered food and after waiting an hour and twenty minutes we went to ask where it was and the way he spoke to my mum was horrifying. Needless to say we cancelled the... More

Decent room at the back of the pub - which is bang in the middle of the old town with some decent bars and restaurants. Staff were very welcoming and the veggie breakfast was lovely and fresh - only reason for not giving five stars was the tiles in the huge ensuite shower could have done with a scrub -... More

This is a real local's pub right in the centre of the old part of Hemel Hempstead We had Room 6 (double ensuite) located at the top of some stairs (no lift) but at least they were straight. Parking is at the back of the pub - there is no space at the front. Suggest contacting pub for directions beforehand.... More
