The White Horse Hotel is an old English inn with guests rooms. Updated to 21st Century comfort. Hertford is within walking distance. It has a warm and friendly atmosphere and delicious food. log fire in winter months.

Myself and my husband have just got back from a nights stay at The White Horse Hotel, celebrating our wedding anniversary. Our first impression of the hotel was poor....in fact we pulled into the car park and sat in our car looking up at the building with a feeling of dread. The windows at the front of the building upstairs... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. I'm actually going to print it off for the regulars, who can perhaps decided if they wish to continue using our hospitality for another 40 years, or 40 minutes (Joking, I think?)

Ideal for three ladies for an evening meal. Not over keen on the steak which I think was "butlers" as it was a tad tough but even so, it was cooked to perfection. Not sure what went wrong in the kitchen but they apologised for long delay in food coming up due to the chicken, but at the end of... More

Can't comment on the hotel, but the restaurant was dreadful. I had the bolognese which was dry and unlike any other bolognese I have ever tasted. My friend went for the chicken which was okay, except for the veg being as soft as baby food. Considering the restaurant was hardly busy we would definitely not choose to eat here again.

Oh dear what a shame, if only we had been given the opportunity to correct this at the time. Such a shame when this is exactly the opposite of the experience we are trying to achieve. More

I had a single room with a 3/4 bed which was fine. Only stayed the one night as was there on business, I'm not sure I would use it for a leisure break as it is becoming a little dated. Food was very good and staff were great too.

Thanks for taking the time to review, the room you were in was one of our 'dingles' which are scheduled for refurbishment. Our King size and families have mostly been done, so I would hope that you would reconsider us for leisure purposes. Thanks again for the positive comments. More

First time visiting the hotel - had mixed reviews from colleagues so was interested to see how it rated. The look of the hotel: from the outside - lovely. Typical old hotel - has a real charm about it. Inside: fine too - couldn't really fault it Staff: were lovely, bar 1 waiter who kept muttering under his breath about... More

Thanks for your kind comments, disappointed with the service you seem to have received in the restaurant, it is a new menu and they were still getting used to it, but my apologies on their behalf. More

Very poor service in the restaurant. No one came and served us our afternoon tea. The hot drinks were served in urns and not indivual teapots etc. No member of staff checked if we were ok. A sea food and nut allergy guest was told to pick around the selection even though we phoned her allergies ahead?

A large group of us had booked for an important occasion. When we had all gathered we took ourselves into the room that had been prepared . It soon became obvious it was for us to collect plates, cutlery and the food stands for our tables. We also made our own drinks from the tea bags, coffee and flasks of... More

The rooms in the hotel are spacious, very clean and well appointed, although they could not be described as luxurious; the bathrooms are a little small. We were booked in for Christmas lunch and then to stay the night and in terms of service from the moment we made our booking to the moment we left, service was nothing short... More
