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

So well taken care of by Michelle, Elliot and Steve. They made our stay the most pleasant one! We'll be back, definitely! Our room was quiet and very tidy, small but functional. And cosy! Being food sensitive our breakfast was brilliant and really tried to accommodate our needs.

We went as two couples. Upon arrival we were quickly shown to our rooms, which were clean and fresh. Both rooms came with tea and coffee facilities as well as good ensuite facilities. The food in the bar was good for both evening and breakfast. The menu was small however covered a lot of variety and portions were plentiful. The... More
