I stayed here on Business for four nights, the staff were courteous and helpful. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was no noise at night so got a good night sleep. Would recommend this hotel.

We stayed in this Hotel on Valentine's day. We fancied a night out and we were told that there is a lot of pubs in St Albans. We booked this Hotel as it is very central and walk able distance to all the pubs around the High Street. It is a good location indeed, close to pubs, restaurants and shops.... More

A clean hotel with very courteous and helpful staff very close to the business area of the lovely town of St Albans. Numerous restaurants are nearby as is The Maltings shopping area. Two things: number 1 St Albans is a very affluent town, and the prices in the shops and restaurants reflect that (even though the hotel's tariff was actually... More

The original building of this hotel is wonderful however the bedrooms are in a new build. They are large, well appointed and comfortable but appear to be built from paper. Whoever had the room above us made our walls shake when they stomped around upstairs. Other niggles are the lights were just switched off at the bar indicating it was... More

The Clarion is a lovely hotel, I used it for a business trip so I could be close to the centre of St Albans, the staff were amazing asking lots of questions to ensure you could get to wherever you needed, they gave me a free map so I did not get lost on my way to the conference centre... More

I've been staying in St Albans every week since the beginning of the year and have stayed in four other hotels. However, since discovering this gem I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Location is central and whilst initially you might think car parking is difficult they have their own parking areas either right alongside or literally a short walk away.... More

I opted for the fixed, non-cancellable rate which was very reasonable. When I arrived the receptionist was extremely helpful. My room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Yes there were a few tiny things that could have been better - the toilet could have flushed better, the iron was missing from my wardrobe, there was a wall directly outside my... More

We stayed a Friday night whilst visiting family. The hotel is superbly located in the centre of St Albans, 5mins from the cathedral and many shops and restaurants, so once we'd parked the car in the tiny car park (we were lucky, but I gather there is an overflow car park but I don't know where) we didn't have to...
