Overall decor of the hotel was lovely, bathroom showing signs if ageing already, with a little snagging in the bathroom the room would of been perfect. Would recommend taking you own hairdryer as the one provided is not great! Didn't spoil our stay would recommend the hotel.

We had heard good things about hotel so we booked rooms for friends to stay. The advertised rate of £85 was then ignored when guest came to pay. Guests we told firmly there was no point in arguing and as many were from overseas they had to fork out £100 per room. It left a bad taste in what was... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on your friends' recent stay. I am glad that overall they had a good experience, and it was unfortunate that the cost was more than you expected. It seems that confusion may have arisen at the time of booking between the Advance Purchase Rate and the Best Available Rate quoted... More

I stayed here for two nights at the end of August 2014 with my wife and son. Plenty of room in our hotel room, very quiet hotel (I went on a weekend too), even the doors had a soft-closing action to keep the noise at a minimum. I never heard anyone whilst in the room. The staff were friendly, helpful... More

We recently spent the weekend in St Albans in order to attend a wedding in the Cathedral. The hotel was very conveniently situated and provided all we could have wished for - comfortable room, handily positioned near the car park for loading and unloading, plentiful buffet-style breakfast. We particularly appreciated having hot chocolate available in both bedroom and dining room,... More

In the past two weeks I have stayed at this hotel on business twice, on both occasions I found the hotel room spotlessly clean as well as the bathroom. The room came with all the amenities you would expect of a modern hotel. The buffet breakfast was well cooked and presented with quality sausages. The staff were very friendly &... More

We stayed in this hotel as there is very little choice in central St Albans. On arrival the man at reception was helpful and very friendly. Our room was in the basement and our window directly faced a brick wall less than a metre away. We did not feel our room was properly cleaned and in the bathroom -floor tiles... More

Hotel interior was fine, staff good, free parking inconvenient ( had to return to hotel to get chef to move his car as it was parked so close I couldn't open my door) and 6 foot outside level with the window of room 209 is the staff rest/smoking area for the pub next door, some interesting conversations overheard but little...

We had a great stay here. Good layout with 2 interconnecting rooms & well located to wander the town. Only downside was parking not onsite however not too inconvenient. Staff were very friendly, particularly the breakfast staff. Breakfast great too!

Great location, great breakfast and great service. It Was nice to come and relax after a hard day of work. The neighborhood was quiet. The room was spacious and very comfortable. Reception was always friendly and willing to help with anything I asked for. Would recommend.

We stayed here while attending a wedding in the town over the weekend of 15th August 2014. It is a nice hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. Parking was available right outside the hotel. The rooms were nice, comfortable bed and kept clean. The location is great for access to the Abbey and centre of town. Our only niggle is... More
