          If it were not for the empathetic and excellent approach of the duty manager, we would never recommend this hotel to anyone. However, because the duty manager displayed good problem solving skills which pacified us both despite the dreadful situation we found ourselves in, we would recommend this hotel with caution.

          Booked well in advance of stay. Booked dinner for 7-30pm. Arrived to find hotel hosting a wedding. Told we would n ot be able to dine until 8-45pm. Room allocated to us was a few metres from the wedding disco. Hotel fully booked so we could not be moved. Bad management. Our room should have been allocated to one of the wedding guests, and we should have been placed in a room well away from the noise as we needed a good nights sleep before a flight from Luton airport the following morning. Room was dark and smelt damp and there was no soap so had to use shower gel to wash hands.

          I chose the Harpenden hotel because of its proximity to the location I was working at near luton and because it is handy to the railway station for the trips into London I neede to make on several occasions.

          I arrived for a wedding and on arrival was told that they had not processed my order from this site and I did not have a room. I was then made to share with a married couple as the hotel was full. Several other guests from the wedding party had the same problem and were sent to another hotel near by. To say it was stressful was an understatement and it took the shine off what would have been a great wedding. Would not stay at this hotel again.

          The guy on reception at check-in was very helpful

          The room was too hot, no air-con.

          The hotel was nicely situated close to shops, pubs and places to eat but in a quiet location. The executive room was lovely and big, nicely decorated, the bed was very large and comfortable with plenty of pillows. The bathroom was particularly impressive, large with modern fittings, a bath with shower over and a double walkin shower cubicle.

          Convenient location for Harpenden

          Lampshade in bedroom broken and at an angle. Buffet breakfast poor - cold bacon, spoons for serving fruit submerged under fruit juice in bowl, no fried eggs, marmalade, margarine .

          The Hotel was convient for the purpose of our visit for a family celebration in Harpenden

          The location of the rooms up numerous flights of stairs & along corridors does not lend itself to older travelers & those who have difficulty walking & carring heavy bags. There was a long delay in obtaining a table for breakfast (30mins) & the food was only warm & limited selection of choice. When we went to pay our bill there was only one person delaying with this & each & ecery person had an incorrect bill issued.We were informed that breakfast was included but this was not the case. We would normally stay at the Holiday In in Hemel Hemsted for these visits but we were persuaded to stay with you.

          Excellent location right in the centre of Harpenden, with big rooms.

          Room right next to a very noisy train line into nearby station.

          Situated within easy reach of Watford and St Albans, yet far enough away to escape the hussle and bustle, the Harpenden House Hotel is a perfect getaway location. With Harpenden Common situated just accross the way and the town centre less than 200 yards away the hotel is ideally situated.The rooms are basic but clean.

          The rooms towards the top of the hotel complex back onto a railway track, although the trains appear to stop running late at night, those with young children going to bed early may wish to request a room towards the front of the complex. If booking through Booked.net please note that breakfast is not included and at £14 per person per night could prove costly if you don't read the small print.

          Great location, cleanliness and friendly bar staff.

          Everything was great until we paid, and were overcharged by £46 in our case and £38 in my sister's case, which I actually paid and realised when my sister queried. I had to fetch my Booked.net documents from the car to disprove their rate. One customer said she was not charged correctly but paid anyway whilst we were at reception. Breakfast not great, but hotel lovely and perfect for our weekend other than that.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The hotel was ideally situated for the town and suited us as we were at a family party. There was a wedding party booking in when we arrived which slowed things down but the staff were friendly and helpful.

          The room (75) was rather dark even in the daytime. They did not serve Red Bull in the bar. Breakfast could have finished later as it was a Bank Holiday Monday.
