Harpenden House is a grand, Grade II listed Georgian townhouse hotel, a 5-minute walk from Harpenden High Street. Luton, St. Albans and Hemel Hempstead are within easy reach, and there is excellent access to the M1, M25 and Luton Airport. A direct rail link reaches Central London in 20 minutes. Bedrooms are spacious and offer free Wi-Fi - most are located in a modern wing, with a selection in the Georgian house. Those in the main house also benefit from air-conditioning.

Fantastic stay at Harpenden House

The hotel was good and staff were very friendly and helpful when asked. The breakfast was excellent and service good even when the hotel was busy. The room was spacious and comfortable although choice of TV channels was below expectation. Really enjoyed the lunchtime check out time!

OK but not great

It is a modern bed factory . Everything works but it is rather minimal and a little tired. Some weeds growing in the parking area make one wonder if the manager is keen on keeping things sharp. Very friendly and helpful staff.
