If you're after a warm welcome and a comfortable room, book now! So far we cannot fault the service of the staff at the Olde King. Unfortunately there was a hiccup with our booking, as we used an external website. We had intended to book a double room on the website but apparently they were misleading us and we instead... More

We had a challenging experience here. Our 100 Euro room was tiny, although attractive. The bathroom was horrible - so moldy we were disgusted by it. The hand soap dispenser was empty, the towel warmer not well-anchored to the wall. The promised free internet was completely non-functional. Breakfast is strange if well-intentioned here. They really could use a simple menu... More

I visited Hemel Hempstead on a business trip and booked one night b&b at the Olde Kings Arms. A 16 century coaching house situated on Old High Street. My room was comfortable with the usual b&b fittings and accessories. The double bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was large with a good shower. Breakfast service was first class. The two...

Small but well appointed modern room and bathroom. Bathroom a bit musty but clean although water was warm not hot. Big plus was air-conditioning as I always get too hot in hotel rooms. Staff friendly although directions to park my car around the back could have been better! Nice English breakfast. All in all. Not bad.

Room a reasonable size (room 4). Breakfast freshly cooked to order. Stayed 2 nights - tea and coffee not refreshed for 2nd night. The bathroom was filthy and corridor skirtings in need of a good clean.

We stayed at the Olde Kings Arms for three nights, and our stay was made delightful by the friendly, accommodating staff. Our room was standard and suitable for our stay, but the absolute highlight of our stay was the delightful service we got from the staff. The breakfast was tasty as well! :)

We were let down by another pub in Hemel so booked here in the morning, a table for the evening for my group of 12. They obliged & I explained we were short on time. We had no complaints. Nothing was too much problem for them. I had bangers and mash and it was good

I arrived late (just before midnight) exhausted, frustrated from long delays back at the airport and I just wanted to go to bed as I had an early start the next day. I was welcomed by Elliot with a warm smile, with no hassle, got my room straight away and got quickly settled. Had an english breakfast the next morning... More
