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

The King's arms is a lovely old English Inn the staff were very friendly and helpful . The real ale was good. we also enjoyed a nicely presented tasty mean. Our room was clean,warm and quiet. Beds a bit soft in room 2. A great find on our way south.

Stayed here for one night with my boyfriend as we were down south for the Harry Potter studio tour. Pleasantly surprised with our room, the old beams and shape/style are a lovely feature to an otherwise modern space. The bathroom was a great size and also modern- only thing I would pick on with it was no handwash at the... More
