My compact room was a little tired and worn. The bathroom was particularly in need of some TLC. The bed could do with a new mattress. Breakfast was very good; reasonable range to choose from. All the staff were very pleasant (which made up for the long wait to check-out). Parking was a nightmare in the hotel grounds (though I...

Stopped here for one night and it had everything I needed. It was comfy, quiet and the breakfast was delicious. Would recommend! I didn't have time to walk around Hitchin unfortunately, but it seemed like a very good location as there were many interesting little shops around the hotel.

This is a charming old building in the town centre. The website warns of possible noise issues at weekends, which is indeed the case (and my room was not double glazed), but I still got a great night's sleep. Check-in was friendly and efficient. There were a few cosmetic issues with the room — paper flaking off the ceiling and...

Didn't stay at the hotel. Food not bad with pretty good menu variety. Rest of the group had no complaints about the food or service and portion sizes are quite generous. I ordered the vegetarian roast - I certainly didn't expect a curry (rice & tikka veg masala) with a Yorkshire on top. No complaints about the actual food. Apparently...

Eight of us stayed here and ate here. What a fantastic place. Staff excellent. Service excellent. Food excellent and value for money excellent. I can't tell you how much we enjoyed the whole stay. It is situated well. We parked the car on car park and that's where it stayed all weekend no need to worry.

We enjoyed our lunch here. The menu was interesting. The portions were large - we both left something entirely because of the amount - and had no room for dessert. Did not start serving until noon so we sat and had a quiet glass of wine first.

Stayed here one night on a business trip. The room had an unpleasant smell, quite musty and it was in a state of disrepair in places. For the price, Premier Inn would have been a better option. Fair to say, I won't be rushing back.

Wish we had booked the Priory for £10 more. There were 2 parties on and although we didnt go to bed early they kept us awake. The bathroom was grubby, the breakfast on cold plates and the service only OK. Definitely look around if prices are similar. It is worth paying more

Stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is very centralky located in Hitchin.Good size room with comfortable beds at the back of the hotel. A bit of a problem with the parking as the car park is very small and there are lots of oeople coming for conferences. The breakfast was lovely and 1 night we sampled the golden years menu...

“Rooms at the back probably quieter. Due to age of building (sixteenth century in parts) its not too good if you are less able - no lift.”
