Absolutely stunning hotel! When we checked in, the receptionist was so warm and friendly. After she discovered it was my boyfriends birthday she have us a free upgrade. The room was beautiful, spacious, immaculate with a luxurious bathroom and a stunning view of the front lawn. We ordered room service which was delicious and again the staff were cheerful and helpful. Makes all the difference.

If you are after a hotel with the wow factor then stay here. In my opinion it makes all the difference when you can see the staff love their jobs and care about customer service.

We recently had our wedding at Shendish Manor, Stunning grounds and the rooms are very elegant as well.

Although it can be thought of as pricey I found that the equivalent types of scenic venues in the area (Watford, Rickmansworth, Croxley) were far more expensive, so overall I found this to be quite reasonable.

The manager also went out of her way to accomodate us by allowing a photo booth (a real working Herbie car) into the reception room, which meant no-one had to leave the function room, a very nice touch.

The Staff were very helpful and it seemed the nothing was to much trouble.

All in all we had a great time and the guests loved it, well done Shendish Manor!!

Room Tip: Go for the superior room a little more but worth it.

As a adult family of 4 from Australia we booked 2 rooms at this hotel for 2 nights when we arrived only 1 room had been allocated. There was an issue with the toilets not flushing properly which was an extreme embarrassment to my 89 year old mother. There were 2 weddings and a birthday booked for that weekend which were extremely noisy and didn't allow us to entertain our own visitors. After we left we were charged twice for one of the rooms. Despite numerous e-mails and producing both the receipts and the bank statements nothing has happened.
I could not advise any-one to stay at this hotel as they do not respond and deal with their mistakes appropriately.

Room Tip: Don't go

My husband had visited the manor house many times in its previous life as a social venue for Dickenson's staff. This was a trip down memory lane prompted by a family wedding nearby.
We only had a one night stay but the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was up to scratch and the breakfast very good. This is a lovely setting and we enjoyed our stroll around the grounds before leaving.

Stopped in the hotel recently and on first approach it looks well, however the rooms or at least the one I stayed in did have a few issues, one, the bed, I’m no giant but my feet hung off the end of the bed, making for a most uncomfortable nights sleep, and it was just me, one of my friends also had the same problem, are the people of Hemel significantly smaller than the rest of the country?!

The bathroom was also not the best, the toilet was about an inch from the wall making it difficult to use! the shower was pretty poor, in fact id have to say you had to run around to get wet.

I'm generally only really bothered about the rooms when I stay away, but will comment that the evening meal was good, I had thought that would be a good marker for my breakfast, unfortunately this was mostly cold, pretty disappointing.

Room Tip: Ask for an adults bed!!

Had the pleasure of staying at the hotel on Tuesday evening and have to say it was lovely. Great location, very quiet, clean and with lovely polite staff. Location is great as a short taxi ride and you can get on the tube at Watford and be in London 20 minutes later. Next time I will have to try the golf course!
