Lets start of by saying that the food at Papillon is first class.. and the staff are really friendly... service is quick ( less than an hour for a starter and main course with coffee after - maybe a little quick possibly if you are after a relaxed meal - but thats me being a little picky) We went to...

We have stayed here twice now, and are going again soon. The beds are so comfy, and the evening meals are Devine. Breakfast is in a class off its own, wow, there is so much to chose from, a full English is an understatement. Some of the Decor is a little tired, but the staff more than make up for... More

An excellent stop on the A602 from Hertford to Stevenage. Beautiful food served by pleasant and efficient staff in a lovely setting. French cuisine with a good choice of food and wine. Extensive menu to suit all tastes.

By far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, and here's why.... On arrival I struggled to check in at the bar due to the wall of regular drinkers clogging up the "checking in area" also known as the bar, once we managed to get someone attention we literally we're asked our details over the top of people drinking,...

We stayed here for 4 nights with our elderly uncle, and we all loved it. The owner and all his staff could not do enough for us, we were thoroughly spoilt. We had evening meals and breakfasts and all were absolutely Fabulous, the breakfasts were the best we have ever had anywhere. Our stay here was so good, we have... More

I only needed one night to cover a social event nearby. The room was spotless with plenty of ventilation in this hot weather. The "Full English" breakfast would have been enormous if I hadn't asked what it entailed. It was 2 of everything!! I went for 1 of everything. I saw a vegetarian breakfast come out which was of the... More

I live in St Albans and regularly the restaurant which for us is a 20 min drive. The staff are friendly, prices reasonable In terms of value for money, and the food always consistently good. I regularly take friends when entertaining and have yet to have a meal I haven't enjoyed. Well worth a visit.

I disagree with the spanish review that Woodhall Arms is a typical English pub as sadly my experience of these has not been great! Notable differences were, all three member of staff were polite and helpful, the clientele were also friendly, on a Saturday night there was virtually no noise at all and I slept really well, with double glazed...

The previous review says it all, nothing overwhelmingly wonderful but good clean rooms, nice staff and a good breakfast at superb value. Oh and I have to say more because my review is to short. It's a very nice place to stay!

Rooms not 4 star but perfectly adequate, clean, good bed linen, bathroom not large but again clean with good high pressure shower. What can be said is the food (dinner & breakfast) was delicous, first class and such good value, advice given over choices did proved to be spot on. The staff went that extra mile ito ensure our stay... More
