Just had another superb 3night stay in the beautifully maintained London Road Guest House! (Think this is our 5th or 6th time). Sumptious surroundings..gorgeous bedrooms/ thick carpets/ fluffy pillows/ etc. However, it is the personal touches that owners Barry and Carol provide, that make your stay, so wonderful! Bedrooms all have TV/free Wifi. A good selection of Dvd's/ Books on... More

We had previously used the London Road venue as a B&B for my mother in law when she visited from Ireland. The stay on that occasion was comfortable. On the second occasion she used the Albert Street venue and found it to be unsatisfactory. The decor was tired and the premises required residents to pass through a communal kitchen in... More

We would like to point out that this review is from someone who did not make the booking or stay with us, and he therefore cannot comment on our service or the situation, so we feel it is inappropriate to reply to it. If the guest herself who made the booking and stayed cared to write a review we would... More

Stayed at Albert street, group of lads for one night. Location was perfect for us, short walk In to town which we did both day and night. Owner met us on arrival and was very helpful and friendly. Was able to leave anytime although we were gone by half ten. Accommodation was clean and the bathroom was fine. Noise outside... More

We used latebooking.com and thought we had booked into 178 with parking. When we arrived and we're not sure how it happened, it turned out we were booked into the owners 'apartment'. This was about half a mile away and turned out to be the ground floor of a small terraced house. The place seemed 'tired', it was self-catering so... More

We are sorry that these guests were so disappointed with their recent stay, which they had booked through Late Rooms. They thought that they had booked a room in the B&B at 178 London Road, but had actually booked a self-catering apartment. We have spoken to Late Rooms about this and they agree that there is no more we can... More

My wife took on the organising of a trip for 22 members of the family to St Albans for a 60th birthday. Finding accommodation for this many was always going to be tricky, but Carol and Barry's lovely B&B combined with three houses in Keyfield Terrace fitted the bill perfectly. The B&B really was superb - a beautiful Georgian building... More

Firstly I have to say to be fair that after complaining about our stay here my daughter was given some money off of our stay. Also I stayed a few years ago at 178 London Road and that property is lovely and I would have no hesitation in recommending staying there. BUT my daughter contacted the owner of 178 London... More

First of all I am so sorry this lady and her daughter were so dissatisfied with their stay. They did not in fact book through LateRooms, but in a telephone call direct to us. My husband said that the only rooms we had available at the time were in our self-catering properties, and the client was made aware that we... More

178 London Road is very well located for anything in St Albans (in our case, a wedding) and for the station which takes you straight in to London. The room was comfortable and well equipped and the breakfast, which we had with other guests, was delicious and flexible - we arrived 20 minutes late but with no problem at all.... More

We booked three rooms in the B&B for our short stay in St. Albans. The house was perfectly clean with luxuriously furnished rooms. The breakfast provided a generous selection of hot and cold foods. The location was ideal (roughly 15 minutes by foot to Verulamium Park).
