I arrived in Hereford in the pouring rain, the traffic was terrible and I had no idea where to find a B n B. The Green Dragon was pointed out to me and as I was desperate I signed in. Parking was in an unpaved carpark behind the hotel. The elevator was being repaired/serviced, so I had to lug my case up two flights. My room was above the kitchen and the receptionist told me that the kitchen fan would go off at 9pm and come on again at 9am. This it did. The room decor was certainly dated, and the floors are creaky. I managed to get something to eat out of breakfast. The hotel is very old and could do with an overhaul. The location is excellent. Other guests at that time were elderly folk on a tour. For me it was safe and clean enough.

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, there was a horrid smell about the place.
The floorboards in the bedroom creeked every time you took a step.
The shower room was not very clean.
Breakfast was not nice at all.
I think this hotel is more suited to older people, rather than a family.
I would not advise anyone I know to stay in this hotel.
My family and I have moved to Hereford and I have not heard one single person say a good word about this hotel.

  • Liked — nothing
  • Disliked — The creeking floorboards every time you took a step, must be more annoying for peaple below.

Some of the reviews on this site are a tiny bit unfair in my opinion, hotel is clearly not 5 star luxury with ultra modern decor and there is no denying it could do with a good spruce up, but it has an old world charm, nice grand entrance hall as you arrive, decent bar/residents area, guest parking in a secure garage and most of all is in an excellent city centre location. We stayed here for a relatives wedding weekend and spent very little time in the room, when we weren't at wedding we were out and about exloring hereford and Green Dragon is perfect location for this.. pretty much opposite the Cathedrel and Mappa Mundi, round the corner from the Left Bank area, River Wye and the high street. The room itself was large, floor boards a bit creaky and a new bathroom wouldn't go a miss but it served our needs fine... the room decor is more 'traditional hotel' than 'Parisian chic' but it was ok - just as we expected from website pictures! Breakfast was good.. just what you'd expect from a buffett style full english selection, fresh and was being regularly replenished. Staff we met were ok, one of the bar men was very friendly and receptionist was polite and perfectly helpful. All in all for our requirements it was fine - some where to lay our head at not a bad price at ~£70/night, i've stayed in far worse hotels with my job for far more money!! (i think we may have paid reduced party rate - some of the prices quoted by people on this site are probably a bit steep for the over all package, i.e don't think i'd be as happy if i'd paid £110+ for one night). It included a decent breakfast and was perfect to explore hereford on foot while we were down for the weekend (other similar priced/quality hotels are all out of walking distance of city centre)!

In Hereford for a wedding party, old Forte hotel which amussingly they have left on all the signs I presume to save money!!

Breakfast was average and expensive, so went down the pub instead for half the price...rooms very tired and in need of a good spruce up...floors very very creaky in the rooms and you can hear everything going on around you...got woken every night by slamming doors etc.

Maid never replensihed the tea & coffee each day...no biscuits etc.

Only good point is the location, which is in the middle of town.

Having just got back from staying at the Green Dragon on the weekend, and reading the other reviews, I'm wondering if we actually stayed at the same place! We booked online, a standard double room at ₤55. The room turned out to be great. Very high ceilings, very large room with seating area, several tables , wardrobe and bed. Only downside was the bed was two singles pushed together. Also, the sofa looked a bit old and tired, but the room was otherwise clean and nice. Bathroom had shower over bath and basic sink and toilet.

We were in room 224, there was a bit of music from downstairs and we could hears some cheers and happy birthday at one stage, but nothing that kept us awake. We did have a little trouble getting the door to lock when we went downstairs to dinner, but managed it in the end. Dinner in the restaurant was very good (particularly the dessert...very rich chocolate mousse!). It was a set menu of two or three courses.

The receptionist who checked us in didn't say much, but leaving in the morning, they were quite happy to help us find where we needed to catch our bus from.

Overall we had a really good stay and would highly recommend it!

  • Liked — Great atmosphere, location and dinner.
  • Disliked — Large double bed was two singles pushed together.

The Green Dragon is ideally situated in the beautiful city of Hereford. Unfortunately the Hotel itself works on a take it or leave it idea- and I would leave it. The rooms were OK but needed a good clean and the only contact with staff was when they wanted paying. (breakfast etc). Could be a really nice place.
