Nick and Josie the owners are there to help your guests with everything they can. The place is well located a few minutes of a lot of restaurants. It's a old building but very clean, Cozy and Warm enough for foreign people.

My husband and I visited The Lord Lister 12/04/14 to book a double room for the Easter weekend for a friend. We were told by a middle aged woman that there were no availabilities - she did not refer to a computer or a book. I felt this was untrue so called the hotel within half an hour later and... More

I stayed at the Lord Lister whilst working in the Hitchin area for a few months. The owners, Nick and Josie, and the other staff (Nina, Pam, Rochine) made me and my colleagues feel incredibly welcome during our stay. This small hotel is ideal if you are looking for great hospitality, a good breakfast to start the day and a... More

Recommended by a friend. Good price for standard double room. Building itself is a quaint old converted building that has kept it's feel. The rooms are off a myriad of corridors and stairs. Decor was good, clean if a little tired in places. Although we didn't use them the lounge area and bar looked comfortable and welcoming. All staff were... More

An interesting, well run hotel with excellent attention given to detail, and staff available at all times ready to help. Every effort was made to accommodate our needs. Though public rooms were small they were comfortable and attractive. The family room we had was a good size with a full bathroom (plus shower) with opening window in both rooms; it... More

Stayed at this hotel recently and have to say it was very poor. From the outside the kerb appeal was poor and from opening the front door it got worse. The hotel was dark and decorated in a very old fashioned style. We had to climb stairs, up and down round corners until we found our top floor room. This... More

There is nothing special about the Lord Lister Hotel, despite the hype that it was once the location of Sir Joseph Lister's school for four years. Our reception was rather strange; the elderly couple checking in just before us were told that there was no need to pay until they left, but we were told that we must pay the... More

We booked for a one night mid-week stay. Our room was in the annex and it looked fresh and spotlessly clean. The main part of the hotel is an old building full of character, the hotel does not do evening meals but has discount deals with various restaurants withi a five minute walk, we got 20% off the food at...

Located in a historic building the hotel is well placed for the town and restaurants. Our room was in the annex to the hotel. Quite roomy but a bit tired with an en suite that had only a bath with shower handset - somewhat 'vintage'! Breakfast plentiful and rapid service but moderate quality. For a room rate of £80 we...

The Lord Lister in Hitchin is just plan nice. The owners are fantastic and you get a lot of little extras in your room. It is an old English Inn but feels like home. If you think the Ritz is great it might not be for you. It has much more character. Breakfast made specifically for you by the owners.... More
