About Hitchin Priory

Many charming original features still adorn the historic Hitchin Priory, situated on nineteen green acres just aside the friendly market town of Hitchin.  Thirty minutes or less from London, the M1/A1 motorways and Luton Airport, this renovated monastery offers a tranquil respite within easy access of city attractions.

Exposed beams, spacious banquet halls and stately fireplaces are some of the original features you'll find in and around the rooms of Hitchin Priory.  Each room offers en-suite facilities, coffee/tea making provisions and televisions.

Hotel features comprise free Wi-Fi throughout the premises, wedding/event venues with optional catering.

Dine on-site for full menu fare in the Delme Restaurant or book larger meal settings in the Priory Marquee or stunning Library Room.

Don't miss nearby attractions of Knebworth event centre six miles away, or Hitchin Market, the British Schools Museum and Market Theatre are all within less than five minutes' walk from the hotel.

Positive Reviews

Beautiful Setting.

A spacious and impressive old monastery set upon gorgeous natural surroundings, within excellent proximity of shopping and central town attractions.  Large, well-manicured gardens and ample parking space.  Weddings are well-organised events set against st

Fantastic Staff.

Helpful and charming, you'll really enjoy this accommodating team.  Don't forget to stop in and say hi to the friendly bar staff!

Delightful Breakfast.

Definitely above average from most reports, the daily breakfast is made to order and served up promptly - just try to keep it simple for the wait staff. It appears the majority loves the Full English!

Hard Beds.

The box spring base is quite hard and can be felt through the worn mattresses.

Many items are woeful in these rooms, including a heavily noted complete lack of air conditioning and insufficient fans to substitute (they may not have enough for everyone-bring your own if possible), no television remote nor any additional pillows besid
