The carpet was filthy dirty. A light not working in the bathroom. Very basic and grotty... More

On the 25th June, as is usual, we visited... 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

We had a great time at the Kings Arms, lovely welcome and staff couldn't do enough to help. Michelle fantastic and made us feel so welcome. Lovely filling breakfast, ideal location too with parking. Couldn't fault in any way. We ate at the Greek and the Thai cottage both delicious. Thanks for having us!

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

We had room two after booking a deluxe twin online. The beds were horrendous! My mum who travelled with me suffers with a bad back; by morning she was in pain! I don't suffer with a bad back but it was sore all day. The bathroom was great although for disabled? Nowhere when booking stated this although it did give... More

Staff were really accommodating and helpful. They offered advice on getting to the nearby attractions and restaurants. Room had a rustic feel with classical wooden decor. They shut the pub at 11 so no noise disturbance at night and you have a key to get in whenever you need. If I was in the area I would stay here again.
