      central position, good food, reasonable prices, pleasant staff.

      The blend of age of building & moderness of facilities. Food was great too & service very efficient

      There was a long walk to the room with lots of steps. The air freshner was a bit overpowering & the bathroom fan extremely noisy

      Very pleasant place to stay in the centre of Hitchen. Helpful staff on reception and room/facilities good.

      Breakfast staff were terrible in providing a service. Had to wait a long time for the food to arrive and keep reminding them that I had asked for toast. Not sure if it was waiters or kitchen staff.

      Historical building

      The staff were very attentive but not overbearing. The Hotel was comfortable and easygoimg but not too organised. I had requested a rroom suitable for my disabilty and this was taken into consideration. We had Lunch and Breakfast in the Hotel and both were excellent in quality and service. Possibly one of the best hotels I have stayed in, in terms of getting the balance just right...thank you I had seen other peoples reviews before booking, but honestly cannot understand what they were complaining about.

      Nothing specially to like, very average

      As a b&b booked for the Sonisphere Festival it was so much better than 3 days in a tent !! The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast menu was good and had plenty of choices. The room we had was comfortable.

      We didn't like that the courtyard was used as a cut through and as there was another festival in town on the same weekend it was quite noisy with drunken teenagers most of the night. The room could have done with a deep clean, there was a lot of dust and there was damp in the bathroom which agravated my husbands asthma and dust mite allergies.

      The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good.

      The toilet wouldn't flush properly but the shower was lovely and powerful.

      Ideal location - very pleasant

      Decorations in room I stayed in could have been in better condition

    • Group of friends
      8.2

      the staff were friendly and the breakfast was excellent. The rate was also very good

      The rooms was a bit shabby and could do with a bit of updating and as it was a town centre location it was quite noisy on the evenings over the weekend

    • Single
      5.8

      restaurant and breakfast ware more than excellent and the hotel had a central location 50m from the village center square and a private parking

      the building was old, the room was damp (rainforest damp) , with a wood frame window partly rotted away, the plaster on the walls started to peal away from the dampness. The bathroom was primitive, and damp and moldy, the toilet, sink , shower were from the 1960 era, the sink had 2 faucets 1 cold water, 1 hot but because they were separate faucets you could only get very hot water or very cold water, nothing in between; and the old toilet did not flush well and took forever to refill

      The hotel staff were very helpful especially at reception..Comfy beds.Good position if you want centre of town

      Our room was in urgent need of bathroom refurbishment, Hotel had a general tired feel about it also extremely noisey late at night from outside street revellers.You also need to allocate a good 45 minutes for breakfast to be served, extremely slow
