Great Hitchin Hotel
This historic hotel set in a most convenient area of Hitchin, being close to shops and a varied selection of good cafes and restaurants, makes a wonderful base from which to explore the area.
We received a very warm welcome and this kindness extended during our entire stay. The room was clean and very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep despite the hotel being on the main road. The breakfast was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The atmosphere during our stay was very relaxed and we have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.
The Lord Lister Hotel
Room was spacious and clean if a little tired.
Bed wasn't the comfiest. No shower screens and only a hand held shower attachment so floor gets a bit wet.
General customer service could be improved.
Excellent family run hotel
I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
The exterior of the building is pretty but the interior is a little dated. There is a car park to the rear of the hotel.
The ground floor comprises a very comfortable living room, a cosy bar and a dining area. Our room (a family room with 1 double and a singe) was clean and functional. The en suite was dated but everything worked. The shower was superb.
What really made this a hotel to recommend was the family that own and run the hotel. They are incredibly freindly and made us feel very welcome.
Lovely hotel, clean and friendly
The hotel was clean and well cared for, the gentlemen who checked us in was very welcoming and helpful.
Breakfast was fast once we had ordered and plenty to choose from. The lady serving seemed a bit miserable despite us saying good morning with a smile but it was an early Sunday morning, so we ignored it although it was a little uncomfortable as it felt like we were a burden. Overall we would highly recommend this hotel as a clean, quiet and well cared for place to spend the night.
The Heart of Hitchin
The Lord Lister is an historic building in a historic town.
A little aged, a little tired, with some modern aspects. Great location close to the centre, but quiet and peaceful. A comfortable enough place to stay.
traditional style family run hotel
This hotel is ideally placed to explore the lovely market town of Hitchin, no distance at all from the town centre.
It's an old style hotel, the décor is a little dated but in keeping with the old building - not for you if you like stylish minimalist modern. The room was fine, beds really comfortable and cosy (in spite of very cold weather) and the sheets lovely quality cotton. Breakfast is really excellent, freshly and individually cooked with a good selection of cereals, fruit etc. The hosts were very helpful when our car broke down, providing tea while we were waiting for the breakdown lorry and were very accommodating when we had to stay an extra night. I would go there again. It is very good value for money.
One of our favorites
Historic building with inherent quaintness.
Rooms are good. Proprietors are amazing, helpful, like friends. Great breakfast. We have stayed several times and are never disappointed
Great location to visit Hitchin
Accomodation is quite basic but clean.
Traffic noise can disrupt sleep and stairs are narrow and steep but the breakfast is delicious, generous and tasty.
A Grand Old House
A very charming and authentic old building.
Well located at the top of the old town. Family run with pride.
Friendly and clean
Very enjoyable stay.
Good value, comfortable and very clean. The room had tea, coffee, biscuits and bottled water.
