Location in the centre of town is the best thing going for this place, and the room and bathroom were spacious. However the rooms are very separate and there is no actual reception. The room I had was right on the front street and the windows couldn't be opened. This made it extremely hot and stuffy, which the air conditioner...

Great accommodation and the restaurant was outstanding. We arrived an hour early and were shown to our room with no problems. Fantastic value for money. Onsite parking was great. We will definitely be returning.

What a lovely little find ! I have stayed in most of the hotels in Hitchin and this by far tops them all. Yes the check-in (mobile to call on arrival) and communication (information regarding breakfast is on a little board on bedside table) is a little unconventional for a hotel but the hotel seems to be family run and...

On arrival we entered the restaurant as no one came to meet us, we walked to the back of the entrance where a man came out and after us saying we had a reservation, he muttered "yeah" took us to the desk where we paid £119 for one night fir a twin room. Had to ask which was the way...

This hotel is centrally located in Hitchen and gives free parking and free wifi. When you check in you go to the restaurant which is rather dark and musty and you wait and call for someone to arrive. We were given a great room on the first floor with an enormous four poster bed that was really comfortable. There was...

Booked on line direct with hotel which was all as expected. Upon arrival there is nothing to suggest how you enter the hotel/room part so we went to the restaurant front door which was open and stood inside for about 5 minutes. There was a strange albeit feint odour too which I can only describe as being familiar to my...

If you want a branded corporate stuffy hotel ,Bellavita is not for you, however if you prefer the personal touch with personality you will enjoy Bellavita. There's plenty of secure parking at the back and it's right in the centre of the Old town. The bedrooms are fab and most have Aircon & ensuites, they might not be the norm...

My hubby and I went here on spec for our dinner date. Random choice on a Friday night. Only chose it because it had tablecloths and linen napkins (I'm a snob and proud!). Sadly we were the only people in which meant mine host was exceedingly ebullient but hey ho, it all made for a memorable experience. The food was...

I stayed here whilst away on business as I thought it looked quite welcoming and quaint and a little different to the usual hotels I stay in. Upon arrival I had to phone the number on the door as it was locked...no answer. I called the landline number provided, also no answer. This went on for 20 minutes until eventually...
