On the whole, this hotel is clean and adequate. Making it suitable for short stays, but there are a few key areas that need to be improved in order to take this to the next level. I appreciate that the building is 300years old, however this fact does not help when you can hear every footstep, conversation and television within... More

I stayed for 3 nights and found the staff courteous and friendly considering the confusion ( on my company's part) over bookings. Breakfast was good, and ample. I think you need to specify bath or shower as the rooms differ in this regard. I'd be happy to go back. There's also a good pub next door which helps. A clean... More

Easy to find and centrally located. Has a small car park, probably big enough for the size of the B&B. We only stayed one night. Some of the staff didn't seem very friendly, although the receptionist working on Sunday was very nice and helpful. The Room was nice and complementary water was left for us, which was most welcome given... More

Had heard varying reports of this hotel but was only room available in Hitchin so booked and was pleasantly surprised . Twin room comfortable, bathroom squeezed in but everything worked. Good breakfast and very hospitable management. These days too many people. Complain about the slightest problem and have too great an expectation. But for the money £70 for 2 twin... More

We checked in at the Lord Lister after a wonderful day and was greeted with a congratulations from a very welcoming manager. She really made us feel at ease leading us out to a beautiful flower garden for us to relax for the latter of our evening. The room itself was stunning, amazing four poster bed, a beautiful bathroom with... More

I stayed here for one night during March 2016 due to my usual hotel being fully booked. I made a telephone booking as the website wasn't working. The person I spoke to on the telephone was quite vague, took ages to take my details despite me spelling each letter phonetically so already I was feeling unsure. I paid £70 b&b.... More

Thank you for your comments I am sorry that you found it difficult to park in our car park, and that you found the room not to your standard but as I explained it was the last room we had left as the hotel that you normally use had over booked and asked to help them out. But I will... More

We stayed at the Lord Lister during the Rugby World Cup. We loved the place. The owners are super friendly and made us feel very much at home. We live in Mozambique and have family in Hitchin so this will be our regular place to stay every time we visit Hitchin. Rooms very cosy and have all that we needed.... More

Having just moved away from the area, we were back this weekend to clean and hand over keys to our rented house, catch up with family and collect the cat. We booked into the Lord Lister Hotel for Saturday night. It is situated in a good location for easy access to Hitchin's lively restaurant area. We stayed at the front... More

This is more of a big bnb than a hotel. Location is on the edge of the town centre, opposite a big Asda and a second-hand bookshop. My stay was fine; no problems. Friendly Italian couple run it. I had a top floor double room - there are quite a few corridors, fire doors, steps up and down, so it... More
