Hotel is fine and everything is neat tidy and clean. Wifi excellent and good large Tv with all Freeview channels. I think this hotel could do with some updating as it seems a tad tired. Excellent friendly staff and nice location ten mins walk from Hitchin centre.

Stayed here overnight on business recently and was very impressed. It's the second time I have stayed here and would have no problem going back. My double room was clean and cosy with a full en-suite bathroom and comfortable bed. The downstairs bar area was good to do some work in and have a drink and the free wifi worked...

I stayed here with my parents for a funeral in the area and had the most wonderful peaceful experience. The rooms were beautifully appointed and absolutely spotlessly clean. Everything that you could want or need was provided and sensibly arranged. Our party had specific special requests which were honoured sensitively and well and every member of staff was polite, friendly...

Firs hotel is a decent accommodation. Rooms are big and clean with clean bathrooms. WiFi is poor and keeps cutting out for lengths of time. There is also a slight funny smell in the hotel (kind of like your grandparents house used to smell). Although nothing too off putting For £72/night would stay here again when working away in Hitchin.

My apologies about the wifi it normally works fine but we have had a few problems with it over the last week. My apologies about the smell as I am not quite sure where or what this was. Your comments have been noted.

Comfortable beds , very clean and we all had a good nights sleep. Wr had an early flight so did not stay for breakfast but slept well. The room was dated but that didn't matter. If you want good value for money with free parking this is ideal .

Lots of space in the car park out back, nice clean and cozy room with a decent shower. The bar area was good showing live sports and not overpriced. In the morning a tastey breakfast and friendly helpful staff. What's not to like .
