My fiancé and I stayed overnight here to attend a wedding in the local area. The rooms are small but adequate for a short stay. Unfortunately our room seemed to have a ladybird infestation I counted 8 in the room at one time all flying around when trying to sleep. When I checked in I was double charged on my...

I decided to celebrate New Years Eve at the Fairway Tavern. Disco, buffet and bubbly for £15 sound perfect for my friends and I. It was a lovely evening and everyone really enjoyed themselves. The room was set out beautifully with a dance floor and DJ decks in the centre and large dressed circular tables surrounded it if you wanted...

Stayed here after a wedding at the Tewin Bury Farm Hotel. Basic but functional room. Reasonably priced. Just across the road from the Tewin Bury so we were able to leave our car there and collect it the next morning. Husband said it was the best shower he had ever used.

Stayed overnight for business, my manager in the double room myself in the single. Both rooms have an ensuite bathroom (with a full sized bath!!) changing area with shelf and clothes rail, small shelf with kettle and coffee\tea, small tv and a mirror.

The rooms are basic but if you want a quiet night away and very comfortable bed then this is perfect. Not expensive and perfectly good pub grub. 100% on my list to stay at again. Great location about 5 mins from Tesco / Ocado head office......Handy.

The rooms were very clean but they stunk! It is a musty mouldy damp type smell. The setting is lovely as is the bar but play golf here, eat here, drink here but do not stay here. We would have left but we only had to endure it for 6 hours. I think I will remember this as the worst...

Stayed in Welwyn for work two nights this week and could not get a room at the Holiday Inn, so tried here. The room and spartan is very small but it is clean and the shower is excellent. Always a bonus! It looks out on the golf course, which is a bit weird as you see golfers sauntering right past...

We came here for a wedding. Whilst we didn't have accommodation here, after reading the reviews I wish I now did! The setting was lovely for the wedding, helped by the fantastic weather over the weekend. The staff were all very helpful and catered to our every request. The food was great and there was no skimping on portion sizes...

Perfect location for a nearby wedding venue. Room was clean. Bed was really comfy. Tea and coffee making facilities. Beautiful countryside views. Enough storage space. The only downside was that the shower was a bit of a drip, but the heated floor and extra fluffy towel made up for it. Overall, a lovely stay.
