I called the Lister a couple of nights before to confirm my booking and got the distinct impression the lady I spoke to would rather be elsewhere, which sewed the seed. There's nothing 'bad' about the place, although my room was quiet but tired and small, the bathroom looked ok. I was packing my rucksack to leave at around 7.30... More

I've been staying here during the week on business for the past month and have found Josie and Nick (the owners) to be very hospitable and helpful. The single bed room I'm staying in is in an annex away from the main building and overlooking the car park and it's quieter compared to some of the rooms that may be... More

Stayed for two nights on business. Location is superb, a very short walk into Hitchin town centre and all that has to offer. The hotel doesn't offer evening meals but with all the restaurants a 5 minute walk away then there really is no need. They have negotiated a discount at a few restaurants inc Zizzi, Cafe Rouge etc. Room... More

Stayed here before and after a wedding. Room a bit dated, double, but very clean. Staff very friendly and breakfast was very good. Would stay here again as there is a lovely pub next door. Quite central with nice views over hitchin. Room could do we a makeover tho and quite expensive for £70 a night

Staying solo or eating out alone no longer phases me, if you still get the collywobbles, fellow female travellers, be still and book in to this friendly and efficient hotel. Family run with a permanently manned reception I received a lovely wrlcome. My room, in an anmexe easily reached through the patio area, proves to be compact, spotless, warm, with... More

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
