“Well appointed, comfortable apartment with lovely finishing touches!”
Reviewed December 10, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Lovely, comfortable apartment in central location, close to shops and train station. Well appointed with high quality fixtures and fittings. Everything needed was supplied - even a bathrobe - it felt more like a hotel in some respects!

“Attractive convenient and well appointed”
Reviewed April 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The location is excellent very convenient to the centre of Harpenden and all its facilities - a short 5 minute walk to Harpenden Railway station offering frequent fast train services through to Central London and beyond is a bonus A further convenience is having dedicated free parking making travel arrival/departure at any time hassle free The apartment itself is modern, very comfortable, very well appointed and would easily be suitable for longer term stays, Our hosts Sarah and John could not have been more welcoming and ensured from the outset we were fully briefed with the workings of the apartment. Harpenden itself is a delightful small town with a village feel - quintessentially English, many pubs and eating places, park like surrounds and well served by super markets. We unhesitatingly recommend a stay here.

“Fantastic apartment”
Reviewed February 5, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A beautifully presented and well equipped apartment in a central location. John and Sarah are very accommodating and helpful and were happy for us to organise the apartment to suit our 3 month old. The lift and car parking space are very handy too.

“Fabulous apartment, great location and so easy to get into London!”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

A stylish, contemporary apartment filled with natural light in a fabulous location in the pretty, upmarket town of Harpenden, just north of London. John & Sarah are wonderful, welcoming hosts who take the care to add those special, homely touches such as fresh flowers, a bowl of fresh fruit, a jar of marmalade and fresh bread and milk! The apartment has numerous quality bars, restaurants and quaint old pubs on its doorstep. Its a 3 minute walk to the station with a frequent and fast short train service into the heart of central London. We stayed twice for six nights each time in July and August 2016 and found it so easy and quick to zip into London day or evening. There are very few places I can recommend to my fussiest, discerning friends and H-Star is definitely one of those rare finds! Highly recommended!

“delizioso!”
Reviewed July 30, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Back in England for a short visit, we knew about this apartment trough the website of
Harpenden City Council and could not be more grateful for the suggestion.
The flat is very conveniently located in the centre of a town hiding some beautiful, little known treasures (e.g. Rothamsted park) not mentioning the surroundings or the vicinity to London.
The apartment is full of light and very comfortable.
Some nice fruit on the table or the fresh flowers in a vase when you arrive remind you that you are more a guest than a customer for the friendly owners Sarah and John.

This is a lovely apartment with all the mod-cons anyone could need. Its right in the centre of Harpenden, 2 minutes walk from the train station and a whole host of bars and restaurants. John and Sarah are very welcoming and were on hand to answer all my questions.
Highly recommended.
