Our lovely Anniversary treat at The Penny Farthing
Lovely stay,super quiet hotel,charming,helpful staff,all added up to make our anniversary stay special Breakfast,freshly cooked was 1st class.Thankyou
The Pennyfarthing is ideally placed to make the most of Berkhamsted but the entrance off the Waitrose car park through a dark corridor is unwelcoming.
The receptionist was friendly and helpful but, for the price charged, we expected rather more polish, and a brighter reception area. The decor is smart but dark, and the room, which we were told was a free upgrade, so presumably the best, was large, very clean, but with a window with a view only onto an adjoining roof. The bed was very comfortable, with sheets and towels of good quality. Breakfast choice was very limited, compared with other hotels we've stayed in and served in an uninteresting, again dark feeling, room. The cooked food was good but the cook had to serve as well and had an offhand manner. If the room charge was £20 or £30 cheaper we would have been satisfied, but expected more for £97.
A comfortable night's stay
The room was very comfortable and the receptionist was really helpful.
Breakfast in the morning was very good.
Pennyfarthing Hotel Berkhamsted
The accommodation was great.
Clean and comfy beds. All the nice little extras except tissues. However, breakfast really let it down. I would stay there again tho.
The Pennyfarthing Hotel
Light fitting hanging loose from ceiling , smoke detector also not fully secured.
All other aspects of room were excellent
Stay at Pennyfarthing Berkampsted
Really enjoyed it.Room, service and food all good.
Have rebooked for September.
As good as expected
I've stayed here before & I would stay here again - the rooms are very comfortable, the staff are always polite, friendly & helpful, breakfast is always good
Good for a weekend visit
Room nice and clean and warm.
Our only problem was with the 'couple' of noisy neighbours doing what couples do. Not the hotels fault although they could pull the bed away from the wall!
I needed to spend a couple of days in London on business & this location suits me.
I have stayed here before & find it really comfortable, the staff are always friendly, and breakfast is great
A Little Gem
I'd not stayed here before, so when my usual hotel in the area was full I needed to find an alternative - this was slightly more expensive but well worth the extra.
The room was a good size, the bed lovely & comfortable, the bathroom clean & modern, the staff were polite & helpful, and breakfast was up to scratch; all in all, I wished I was staying longer!
