Needham House Hotel is a Edwardian manor in Little Wymondley, a quiet village near the market town of Hitchin in Hertfordshire. The property re-opened in 2016, following a 3-year renovation, and now has bright boutique-style interiors.
The hotel is easily reached from central London -- the train journey from King's Cross to Stevenage takes 25 minutes, and it is then 10 minutes by taxi to the hotel. The 120-acre Fairlands Valley Park is a 10-minute drive from the hotel (open Tuesday-Saturday), and the hotel is 40 minutes' drive from the city of St Albans, with its "host of crooked Tudor buildings" and "elegant Georgian town houses" (Lonely Planet). Warner Bros. Studio Tour London, where you can see behind the scenes of the "Harry Potter" movies, is a little under an hour away by car.
The hotel's SG4 Brasserie holds two AA Rosettes for its British dishes, served in a relaxed setting. Hertfordshire Life reviewed the restaurant and praised its "attentive" service and "good solid fare". The adjoining bar and lounge offers a selection of over 30 different gins. There's also an ESPA spa with a Turkish hammam, a Swedish Sauna and treatment rooms.
Bedrooms are modern and have views of the hotel's grounds. The Executive Rooms have larger beds and a bigger TV than the Classic Rooms.
