This B&B was an absolute treat. My wife and I were visiting the area for a wedding nearby and stayed here for 1 night. We arrived early to drop off our bags and Annie was incredibly accommodating considering how early we were. The house is so attractive and the rooms were very comfortable. The house is in a great location...

Oh thank you so much for a such a wonderful review. It was very kind of you both. And really glad that you enjoyed your breakfast. It seems to be a disappearing part of the B&B nowadays which I find amazing so you can be sure that Number One will continue to provide the very best ingredients with top quality...

I have recently had the pleasure of staying at the delightful Number One Port Hill and I have to say I would thoroughly recommend that anyone visiting Hertford needs to at least visit this amazing Georgian Grade II listed hotel...in actual fact it is more than a hotel it is more like an overarching experience you never want to end....

I went to number one for a pop up restaurant evening. It was excellent. Annie and Emily and rest of their staff run an excellent 'ship" and will definitely be returning. I would also o highly recommend the bed and breakfast as I have heard such positive good reports from people who have had guests stay there.

We booked number one port hill as it seemed an unusual, quirky B&B and it certainly lived up to our expectations. The owner was very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The room was comfortable with several added treats including fresh roses which was a lovely touch. A very chilled out big breakfast finished our stay. Highly recommended as...

When you see photos of a hotel on a website you seldom find that they reflect reality. In the case of Number One Port Hill, the reality exceeds expectation. This is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Annie is an excellent host and it was a real pleasure to spend a few days in her beautiful Georgian home....
