Stayed two glorious nights at this wonderful bed and breakfast conveniently located in "heart" of Hertford. Top marks for room and bathroom amenities, friendly yellow Labrador Retrievers, afternoon wine serenaded by baby robins in the secret garden, and the proper English Breakfast ... with The Best Coffee in Hertford!

What fantastic comments! Thank you so much:) It was so lovely looking after you and really enjoyed our chat in the courtyard garden over a glass or two....unfortunately one of the baby robins didnt make it which is very sad so hoping the others survive as it's lovely having them around.

We rented all three rooms at Number One Port Hill in February 2017, including the night of our wedding. The rooms were clean and tidy and the whole house was fragrant. It is adorned with trinkets and is very tasteful, with a lovely little garden at the front. The food was tasty and the staff were flexible. They accommodated a...

We spent the weekend here celebrating our friend's hen. For luxury and spoiling yourself you couldn't find anywhere better. The house is unique and crammed with intriguing objects. Annie and Emily were so welcoming and their attention to detail was incredible. They helped plan the whole weekend- finding a local spa, arranging a private dining evening and a mixologist, and...

My grown up children and I attended a local wedding and wanted to stay somewhere special. Visually it ticked many boxes...lots of sparkly things and great staged charm. Good location, close to the town. Would I be tempted to go again?...for us...no not really, it was good but our preference would be for more personal warmth.

The charming county town of Hertford (close to where I was born) has not changed dramatically since my halcyon days as a youngster I am pleased to say. Its streets are attractively packed with an immense variety of shops, businesses & emporiums. Traffic is, and has always been, abundant to say the least and seems the only thing that can...
