We were guests at a family wedding. We were greeted with very happy and helpful staff at checking where we were given a free parking pass for just down the road and 5 day free WiFi access. Room very cosy, great bed, bathroom and plenty of tea/coffee making facilities. Even though the room looked out to the main road you... More

Stayed 6 wonderful nights at the Clarion late July. Our stayed started with the super friendly and efficient Nikki checking us in. That was the catalyst for excellent assistance from the staff throughout our stay. The breakfast staff were always bubbly every morning and nothing seemed to be a problem. The room was on the top floor at the rear... More

very smoothly run hotel, staff all friendly but professional. Room was comfortable and clean, shower powerful and plenty of hangars in wardrobe. We were there for a wedding and there was predictably great pressure on the dining room the following morning when almost everybody came down to breakfast late. The hotel had , I suspect, anticipated this and had extended... More

Loved the staff, so helpful. Overload parking when busy is approx. 300 yards down road but you can drop baggage beforehand. Booked ages ago and disappointed to find our room was lower ground! Room was fine but very dark. Ok for one night but would have been unhappy if longer. Breakfast was brilliant as were the staff. Would drginitely stay... More

The Clarion is a lovely little hotel in St Albans, right opposite the cathedral and within easy walking distance of all town amenities (though the town centre is up a moderate hill so bear that in mind if you have mobility issues). The hotel staff were truly fabulous at all times during our 2 night stay, chatting & making every... More

The hotel was very clean and the room was very comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly and informative. We arrived early was told the room would be ready within an hour and it was. The hotel ideally situated for the centre of town. A very relaxing stay

The Clarion St Albans is ideally placed in the heart of St Albans. There are numerous great restaurants nearby and of course the cathedral and Verulamium Park which are just opposite the hotel. There are too many restaurants to recommend but every type of cuisine and taste is catered for in the busy evenings in St Albans. I am a... More

Great service right through from the phone calls I made before booking to our stay and finally the check out. Lovey staff, friendly and efficient and a lovely clean and comfy room! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel and in St Albans itself. Very pretty town!

Very clean place lobby, bar, rooms etc. Unfortunately our room was on the ground floor next to an alley for cars to be parked so we were unable to open the windows but that is just luck of the draw. We booked late so cannot complain. Breakfast was surprisingly nice for a hotel which was a bonus. Wide variety of... More

Staff very friendly and welcoming. Good sized room, very clean and bed very comfortable. Free wifi. Nice bathroom with good shower. Hotel is very close to town centre so very convenient, but there was no noise to keep you awake. Parking is free, although the attached car park is quite small, there is access to another one just a couple... More
