The hotel is situated conveniently for all the town amenities. We had a twin room that was an average size with a very small shower room. The room was a bit dated but clean with fresh towels changed daily and extra's of shower gel, shampoo, cotton buds, etc. Our room was facing the front so there was some traffic noise... More

Superb welcome on arrival, car parking, great location, room was super comfortable (well bed). Bathroom was fine. I didn't have much for breakfast so can't comment on that really. I have stayed nicer places by for £70 for two people it would be hard to beat.

We stayed in the annex. The staff were all very friendly and what impressed us most was the cleanliness of our room. This was the cleanest hotel room I've stayed in and it is a very short distance to the town centre. Plenty of choice for breakfast which is included.

A pet hate of mine with British hotels is that they often have wedding receptions on a Saturday, which renders sleep impossible until the wee small hours. So, when visiting the lovely old town of Hitchin we thought the Lord Lister was unlikely to have a wedding reception as it is small and doesn't do food in the evening. We... More

We made this calculation - stay at the Lord Lister and completely avoid taxi fares for getting to and from our event. It paid off - in fact Lord Lister is good value anyway. The room was nicely decorated and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom had shampoo/shower gel bottles and in the room they give you tea/coffee making facilities... More

We stayed one night at this hotel and found it comfortable and good value for money, which is something we rarely say about British hotels. It is conveniently placed for visiting the centre of Hitchin, where you will find plenty of good and bad restaurants and bars like many other towns! Friendly and helpful hotel staff and owners, good size... More

Stayed 3rd weekend of October 2014. If you imagine the heart of Hitchin to roughly resemble a square, then the Lord Lister is situated very conveniently at one of the corners, every where is no more than 15 minutes away with an abundance of friendly pubs and restaurants. The hotel is quaint and friendly and well priced per room per... More

I had the pleasure of staying at this delightful hotel on Saturday 20th September 2014. It is in the perfect location for exploring this beautiful town and is run by a very welcoming Italian couple who cannot do enough to make you instantly feel like long time friends, just superb! My room was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a great... More

Very easy to find and centrally located for Hitchin and for routes to nearby towns. Double room was spacious, quiet and well-equipped. Good shower. Welcome and service from staff very friendly. Parking is a bit tight but secure behind the hotel. Excellent breakfast and good atmosphere in dining room, shows others were enjoying their stay, too.
