My wife and I stayed in Hitchin for two weeks and after much discussion with the owner, decided on this place. For a long stay, it was quite a deal in that regard. We required a room where we could store some leftover foods and snacks (small fridge), microwave and a sink, as well a sitting area for some space... More

The food was very nice in the restaurant, although when having lamb i asked for mint sauce which they do not stock. The hotel room provided a fridge which was broken. The walls had drink stains up the walls and stains on the carpet, We had all the necessary tea and coffee making facilities but missing the fundamental part (KETTLE).... More

My partner and I stayed overnight as we had travelled from out of town and were eating at the restuarant with family. I can't rate this venue highly enough. The room we had (#1) was beautiful with a very large bathroom and corner bath large enough for two, which we made use of. The full english breakfast in the morning... More

There is no reception, you have to ring a mobile number when standing outside the restaurant and he comes to the door. He gave me an automatic upgrade to a newly... More

We stayed at La Bella Vita on New Years Eve to attend our friends wedding. On arrival, the manager informed us that we were getting a free upgrade but on reflection I wish that we had kept our original room. On entering our room it looked romantic with the oak carved four poster bed looking particulary impressive. Unfortunately, the problems... More

I had lived in Hitchin for 5 years and never knew this hotel existed. i have previously eaten in the restaurant and the food and hospitality were exceptional. We stayed at this hotel for New Year Eve and were very impressed with the very reasonable rate for B&B too. We popped into the restaurant to check in and were handed... More

There is no reception as... More
