We had our wedding reception here in May in the marquee. On the lead up to the day Charlotte was really helpful, always on hand to answer questions either on the end of the phone or via email. We filled in a detailed plan of where we wanted items placed and I spent a long time doing a detailed table...

I chose this as another lucky dip hotel and the building & history seemed interesting. Like a maze inside where old & new buildings join so walked around & enjoyed exploring 3 times to find my room ! Bar had 8 blokes watching the football praying for an England win. The building & gardens are huge and nice to wander...

I stayed on business last Thursday. A really nice hotel just one minute walk from the town centre. The building is beautiful set in it's own grounds. My room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff were very good as was the food. I hope to stay again soon, many thanks to Thierry and his excellent team.

I wish I had stayed in Premier Inn. Very bad rooms and terrible breakfast. Needs a lot of investment to make the best of a nice old building and grounds. The room was in an Annex which internally was worse than armed forces barracks...

Reasonable price. Few disappointments. Booked in at Priory Court ; no convenient parking for disabled. Advised to park in space close to accommodation - guests in rooms opposite where we parked annoyed! Room ; fan in bathroom inactive. No hooks in bathroom for robes. Insufficient hangers in wardrobe. No information in bedroom about facilities.

Thierry V, Manager at Hitchin Priory, responded to this review

Thank you for your comment> We did have two parking spaces reserved for guests with disabilities next to the Priory Court, unfortunately inconsiderate able guests often tend to ignore the signage and stopped Blue Badge holders from using them. it is a shame. We also man our reception 24 hours a day and would have provided you with additional coat...

Having read a number of reviews that berate this little gem in a lovely historical town, I would like to retort that for the cost of our room, I believe this to be one of the best "value for money" stays that my family and I have ever undertaken. The quirky décor mix of modern reception in a very old...
