The Sun Hitchin, Hitchin
Great staff and showers!!
Working in Hitching town centre, so this hotel was ideally placed. really friendly and professional front desk. Room comfortable with the second best shower of all time, I've stayed in hundreds of places and this shower, room 20 is up there with the best!! Breakfast was good - just one minor gripe, please drain your poached eggs before putting them on the toast, to avoid soggy toast! sorry but had to be said x

Tired, outdated venue with mediocre service
Waited several minutes for someone to man the check in desk, lack of information on basics - time and place for included breakfast and check out time for example. No info in room either. description said air con but there is none in the building at all. Generally run down and in dire need of a refurb. Mould in bathroom, TV mount caked in thick dust, furniture rickety. Heard every person walking past the room. Surprisingly comfortable bed, powerful shower and good breakfast spread - although avoid the scrambled eggs. Premier Inn nearby is much better for similar price.

Lovely hotel and restaurant
Really nice hotel with original features. Room was good, food and drinks were good and a great breakfast. Nothing, at all, to criticise

My only problem with the whole experience was one of parking. I booked as it said there was free parking, it didn’t say it was restricted. Upon arrival there were no spaces as non residents could park there with payment. I was advised to try one of the pay car parks, but being it was a Saturday and Market day, spaces were at a premium. I did manage to eventually park on premises, which made the stay complete!!

Sun at Hitchin - showing its age
A convenient place to stay but some of the rooms and bathrooms showing their age. Food is very good though but parking a problem particularly on Saturdays with the Market next door.
