Whilst it is true that the White Horse Hotel, Hertingfordbury is currently closed, and the ?1960s extensions have been demolished, the local understanding is that it will open again within the next year as a smaller boutique hotel using just the original building.

I am so sorry and shocked to see you are actually closing down this week-end forever. I brought my 90 year old Auntie for an afternoon tea birthday treat in April, along with my cousin. Your staff were so good, moving the table out to give her a little more room and gave us an excellent service, nothing too much... More

Is this the best hotel I've ever stayed at? No. But it has been perfectly accommodating for 3 nights per week for the last 10 months. The bar, restaurant and rooms are all decent and the staff excellent. Sadly, however, the place is closing on 8th May 2016, to be demolished and replaced with houses. A great shame. My sincere...

We couldn't really ask for a better review, thank you. Especially when people realise that we are closing, they don't really bother to review. It's a great compliment to our staff that you appreciate that the standards we set when you first stayed with us 10 months ago, still stand, even though the staff will not be employed by the...

Our visit for afternoon tea for four was enjoyable, except for the following: One of our guests has specific dietary requirements, so I included these on the on-line booking.

Stayed for four nights, couldn't fault the hotel, restaurant or staff. Check in was speedy and pleasant. The hotel garden is lovely, if only we had had more sunshine, can't blame the hotel for that. I would have given you 6 out of 5 if I could.

We had afternoon tea for 30 and Dinner for 9 in the evening. Could not fault the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. We have a wonder day made all the better by the staff and Manager. Its a shame the hotel is closing but when the Bar Restaurant reopens I'd definitely consider dining here again.
