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...

We stayed for a night on 27th January. Both rooms were spotless, comfy and warm . Staff lovely and friendly especially the lady that took our breakfast order. Bathrooms were good. Much better quality shower than we have had in similar price places . Easy to find and plenty of restaurants within 100 feet.

I have stayed here on several occasions but won't be returning again, I advised I would be arriving late and they checked me in at 9pm to a room that hadn't been cleaned and told me that although they appreciated it needed cleaning there was only one member of staff on that night and could I wait until 1130pm to...

Visited as a couple staying overnight before going to the Harry Potter studio tour. Location was great as it was very close by, easy to get to and there was parking available. Having never been to Hemel Hempstead before I had no expectations but it was a lovely place full of history and the hotel was very charming. Nicely decorated... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for one night in November as we were going to Harry Potter Studios and also visiting London. Both of which were very easy to attend due to the hotels location. We are so glad we chose to stay at The Olde Kings Arms as everything was faultless! Our room was very modern and spacious... More

This little inn has lots of character - exposed wooden beams etc. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. I needed to book a taxi in the morning and they informed me that another guy was going to the same event and they would ask him if he would like to share a taxi which we did saving us... More
