    Tired, grubby and not recommended

    We arrived at the hotel around 10pm and rang for the receptionist, it was not long before Dean arrived and checked us in. A party was going on upstairs with children running all over the place. I put our bag in the room and was pleased to note I could not hear the noise. We went for a drink in the bar and had beer slopped over the side and likewise with the cider. There were no mats on the tables and the table was sticky. Going up to the room there is no initial indication where the rooms are but having been here before I found it. The room is an adequate size and the bed comfortable. There were no glasses in the room and no telephone. In the morning the sink blocked, there was no soap in the shower and the carpet was grubby. Breakfast was poor with the worst scrambled eggs I have ever seen. The smoked salmon that came with it looked like a slab rather than thin slices. The cutlery looked unclean and the glasses cloudy. The hotel looked tired but also very grubby. Not a place I will stay at again.

    Great location in the heart of Hitchin. Parking was a breeze after expecting it to be cramped and difficult to get into. Staff was friendly but straight forward. While personally I didn't take much issue, my travel companion couldn't get over the fact that the room's bathroom was very poorly maintained, with visible spots on the walls and a small leak on the toilet which was 'fixed' by a towel the staff put there to soak up the water. That said, the hotel offered a very low rate compared to the other hotels we've been to throughout our trip and the room is adequate if you just want to sleep and nothing else. The included breakfast was inexpensive and of very good value. Payment through Expedia was a breeze.
