What We Love
- A charming boutique hotel near historic Hitchin in Herts, with breakfast and welcome proseccoGetting a gang of friends and holing up in this rustic escape
- Being just a 30-minute train ride from central London
- Choosing from more than 30 varieties of gin at the stylish bar
What To Know
- Executive balcony bedrooms overlook the hotel gardens
- The Needham House Spa has a hammam and Swedish sauna
- Free WiFi
Having recently re-opened following a full refurbishment, this hip sleep in the picturesque Hertfordshire village of Little Wymondley is a cool pick. Not only will you have both the medieval market town of Hitchin and the ancient Roman settlement of Stevenage on your doorstep, but you’ll be an hour’s drive from central London – or just 30 minutes if you take the train.
But location aside, it’s the on-trend guest rooms that give the hotel its modish edge. There’s boutique-chic decor, floor-to-ceiling windows and super-comfortable beds swathed in designer bed linen. Days can be spent visiting the gorgeous gardens at nearby Knebworth House. Equally worthy of your attention is the sleek Brasserie SG4 with its show kitchens and booth-style seating, and the too-cool bar with its top-notch gin and champagne menus.
How to Get There
Me and two of my friends had the pleasure of staying here over the Easter weekend. Needham House Hotel is lovely and the staff are very friendly, attentive and nothing is too much trouble.
If you have time during your stay, I recommend you take advantage of the Spa and treatments. We booked the Lunch and two mini treatments package - £73.00 each which we all felt was very good value for money.
If you want to go into Hitchin is only a 10 minute taxi ride and the local firm we used, were very reliable.
We all had a great Girlie weekend and would highly recommend this hotel.
Our daughters wedding was held there, the service was exceptional, all our guests commented how attentive they were, happy to help with individual needs. They took all the stress and worry away from the family and had everything in hand. Food was lovely and plentiful. We would like to thank Hayley and the manager Reece and his team for all the hard work, care and attention to detail for making a special occasion extra special.
We have nothing negative to say about Needham house. We had a lovely Easter weekend there.
Would highly reccomend
Booked a one night stay deal with Travelzoo that included a 2 course dinner and breakfast, which was fantastic value. The hotel was well situated, looked good and was nicely decorated. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and had everything we needed. Dinner was great, well presented plates, tasty and breakfast was also very good. All in all, it was a really good experience and would definitely stay again. Thanks
We went to this hotel on a travelzoo offer. It was a large hotel in its own grounds. The. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The standard room was small but fine with a beautiful en suite with walk in shower. The room was very clean with comfortable bed. The food was excellent and service very good. All included in the deal.
Not a bad little hotel/conference centre. Not a great fan personally, of this procedure of sitting down at a low desk with the receptionist to check in but each to their own.
Rooms are small functional but lacking in places to put anything.
The restaurant was good both for dinner and breakfast, very pleasant staff!
