The Broadway Hotel & Carvery, Letchworth

Dear Guest

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus crisis, it’s with great sadness we’ve had to temporarily close our doors. We are now in Hibernation.

  • Our room reservations are currently closed for bookings for the months of April, May and June 2020. This will be reviewed regularly based on government updates on guest and staff safety.
  • For existing summer ballroom functions and events, we will be in touch 4 weeks prior to the date of your event to help plan your wedding / party, should we be in a safe position to reopen for business. We will continue to review this ever-changing situation and act accordingly.
  • For important enquiries, email us on: info@broadwayhotel.co.uk. Our offices are unmanned and the boss is looking over emails received as and when possible.

Best wishes, stay safe, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We are missing you, please consider buying a missing you voucher!

Testimonials

The service is always good and so is the carvery. They are not stingy with the meat and it is very reasonably priced. It is good for children and also offers other options for those not wanting a roast dinner.
