      Lovely hotel rooms are decorated to the highest standard. This is not a budget hotel. Quite luxurious id expect it to be near 3 star poss just about 4 star

      This hotel dont no if they cater for middle aged people or 18 to30sdico type of person. They had a bar disco banging away till 2am in the morning . couldt get no sleep at all wont be staying there again. Real shame very nice place hertford but has turnt from a lovelymarket sleepie town into a young persons drinking hole. The staff are not helpfull well not reception I rang and said when does the disco finish he said 2 am . I said thats not good enough he repliedfair enough and then hang up the phone

      Breakfast was excellent. Good quality, good service and pleasant surroundings.

      The Room was airless, very hot, no air conditioning but there was a very noisy fan, which in the end, through fatigue turned out to be the best option. I arrived quite late (around 11pm). There is no carpark at the hotel and I struggled to understand the directions to the multi storey. The night supervisor then gave wrong directions, perhaps it was the language barrier, but it is no fun walking down a no footpath dual carriage way following wrong directions - you get the picture.

      Clean room

      This is really a nightclub with rooms attached. Impossible to sleep until 3am

      Comfortable room, very comfortable bed

      No parking facilities, directions to access hotel via road poor.

      The hotel was clean cut and well designed definitely aimed at a younger market. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful even the doorman was apologetic when he mistakingly tried sending us to the back of the queue for the club rather than letting us in to our room. Food menu looked good value although we didn't get a chance to sample it... One thing is for certain we'll be back!

      It would have been nice to have been told we'd been given a disabled bathroom, no bath was a tiny negative. A note about parking would be helpful, and perhaps a cleared idea of where to go when the club is open so you don't get caught in the queue outside. These were tiny inconveniences though an barely detract anything from a great hotel in a great location!

      This was a smart, clean hotel with a varied breakfast menu. I had Eggs Florentine and the quality of the breakfast was excellent. The price paid for two of us to stay overnight, with breakfast included was unbeatable value for money.

      The hotel also doubles up as a bar and music 'night spot'. The music was loud in the bedroom and did not finish until 2am. If you can put up with this, then the hotel represents good quality and value.

      A very miserable experience. The managment should decide whether to operate a night club or hotel. Although the hotel said there was live music to which we were invited and we were therefore aware, the noise was totally unacceptable. We were immediately above and facing the street so consequently there was still considerable noise from people leaving and standing around shouting until well past three a.m. By five the first of several waste vehicles arrived and started collecting bottles etc with considerable noise followed later by other waste collection (I accept the hotel can do nothing about that). As a result we had no sleep which was strangely enough the sole purpose of booking into an hotel!! There were dirty glasses in the bathroom. In effect we paid £75 for an average breakfast.

      location breakfast and daytime staff were good

      when booking had requested non-smoking and quiet room; on arrival room stank of cigarettes and when we reported this we were told that we could not be relocated till next morning. On Thursday night the St Patrick's Day bash in bar was noisy then again and even noisier the Saturday night disco made it impossible to sleep as bass noise was thumping through the floor even though we were on 2nd floor. When we went to complain at 1 o'clock in the morning they were not very helpful other than saying they had turned bass down slightly. Could not sleep at all until after 2.30a.m. because of noise then woken again at 6a.m. by traffic/dustbin lorry. Did not offer refund only a night free of charge on our next stay - what makes them think we would stay again!! They stated that they tried to inform guests re the noise - this was not the case when I booked

      The decor of the hotel was very nice, the room was comfortable and the included breakfast was good.

      The downstairs bar was very noisy and you can forget getting to sleep before 2am on a Friday or Saturday night.

      Great location smack bang in the middle of Hertford. Very lively hotel bar, not for the faint hearted!!

      Parking is a problem. Had to park in local car park which was pay and display. Cheap enough but not ideal.
