I spent 2 nights here while on business in the area recently and was pleasantly surprised by what I found at this quirky and charming B&B in the centre of the old part of Hitchin. My room did look as though it had been furnished from a second hand shop but it all seemed to work so well and fitted... More

This hotel has the potential to be so much better. The room was large with a very comfy four poster bed. However only 1 mirror in the bathroom that was dark as it had LED lights on it. Looked great but I couldn't see a thing through it. Hardly any plugs in the right places which I find frustrating. No... More

I had stayed once before and then booked again directly with the owner Georgio I confirmed with and email and contact number and when I turned up to check in he says he has no room and some excuse as to works being done. He did not email me or telephone me and there being no other hotels available that... More

I have visited the Hotel on and off over the last Year, the room are always clean. You have to go to the Restaurant the food is the best Italian you can get outside of Italy and the quality of the food is out of this world.

My husband and I had stayed there for Valentines evening, and had been impressed with the food (the room - not so much) so we thought we would stay the night for our anniversary. Sadly, it was a Sunday so they didn't serve food! OK - so we would stay for B&B and dine at Zizzi across the road. When... More

Booked this place as a last minute night out on Saturday afternoon so didn't have time to read through reviews but the fact it had a four poster bed and was in a good location I went ahead and made the booking. We arrived late afternoon,managed to get a space in the car park,took out our... More

With all the negative comments about this place, we may well have decided to stay elsewhere, however thinking it might be like Fawlty Towers and worth a laugh, we decided to go with it. What we found was very pleasant staff with a good sense of humour (which some might misinterpret as rude!) and the banter between us was very... More

On the day of travel we phoned at 1pm to check out reservation and were told all was in order, though were told check-in wasn't possible until 6pm. On arrival at 4:30pm to park the car the Bella Vita manager told us 'we... More

I was in the area for a couple of weeks and stayed here for two nights. Loved the room - it was beautifully decorated with a king size bed, large sideboard containing a mini-fridge, huge rococo-style mirror, TV and DVD player, and really good power shower. The bathroom had a heated towel rail and was nice and warm. Only issue... More

Delicious food in restaurant but hotel rooms 36 & 11 are poor standard. Musty, dirty & very much in need of a refurbish. First room resembled a bedsit, dead insects behind curtains & broken toilet seat. Second room, lumpy bed, hole in bathroom door, musty smell which no amount of spray would disguise and shower dirty.
