A quick check in after a long day was in the bar area of the restaurant - no problems for me, but if it was busy could have been awkward. Lucky me, bumped up to a room with aircon - so a top tip is to request it. It's vital. The room itself was nice, clean and v comfy bed... More

found hotel to be very clean , in town centre , with free car park . We were given a room on the top floor. We asked to be changed to a ground floor due to my husbands sciatica . No problem , the room was spacious and adequate for our needs . Very quiet . Would stay again .

This is not a place I would recommend for families. The owner is bad tempered and disinterested in his guests. During our visit we encountered three problems: 1. No hot water each morning. 2. Air conditioning problem on Day 1 and top floor room very hot & stuffy for entire visit. . 3. No Wifi access in bedroom. The owner... More

Booked a triple room which was 3 floors up. Asked politely of a lift, to be told it was 'no, it's a young hotel' and were left struggling with 50 kg of luggage. No help offered at all. Room smelt of cigarettes and the windows were filthy. One bed hadn't been made and so they brought some sheets and an... More

Spacious room, very comfortable bed, large screen T.V, shower was powerful. The decor was uninspiring needed some T.L.C. Mould on ceiling above the shower which was not very nice. Tea making facilities were not great, there was no fresh milk or mini bar....no bottled water either...yet they had an empty fridge in the room which was not even plugged in.... More

I honestly don't understand the reviews on here, I recently had my 40th at la bella Vita, they provided me with a 3 course meal for all 22 of my guests in a private dining room with its own bar. The service was outstanding as was the food..... we all pre ordered our food and it was all so delicious.... More

I arrived about 8pm after as many have mentioned driving through the town and missing the entrance. Top Tip: just left over a small hump near Zizzis and something called The Snug. Parking to the rear and then a walk back to the restaurant entrance. Check in was fine alhough should the restaurant be full I would feel awkward. My... More

Walls were filthy, looked like blood splattered. Only a thin sheet on the bed, no duvet, no central heating, very cold. Loose tea bags not sealed. Pot of loose sugar. Stained carpet. Couldnt wait to check out and get breakfast elsewhere. Room 3.

Service, food and atmosphere are jointly the WORST you can expect at a price that is exorbitant. DO NOT GO HERE unless you want to be robbed, poisoned and tortured by rude owners arrogant, distasteful chauvinist remarks. Horrible man, horrible place.

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
