All one could wish for in a town centre hotel with parking right outside our window we could keep an eye on the car and contents. The room was clean and well kept. The bed was large and very comfortable. We would stay again without hesitation.

Visited St Albans almost by accident and did a late booking at the Clarion for a couple of nights. An excellent choice, the hotel is city centre, just down form the shops, very close to the Cathedral and close to some very nice and lively bars. All the reception and serve staff were excellent, with good chat and recommendations, the... More

We overnighted here and it is situated in the heart of St Albans, with available car parking behind the hotel which was an added bonus. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The internet was great. The rooms we had (4 in total) were not large but very pleasant.

We were in St Albans for our office Christmas dinner at the Peahen just up the road and didn't want to drive back to Brighton! The hotel interior is very welcoming and the staff were very efficient and friendly. The room itself had everything we needed including a really comfortable bed. We have the full English Breakfast in the morning... More

The sign for this hotel outside the door makes it look like a hostel so I was a little worried when we approached. Upon entering there was a customer asking us if we knew where the reception was. We couldn't find it ourselves initially until we realised it was through a packed bar. We had to excuse ourselves past people... More

A really nice clean hotel well situated within walking distance and of all of St Albans shops and restaurants. Friendly staff and free wifi complete the picture. The breakfasts are fresh and well presented and the is a small pub that serves light snacks. This was a really good hotel experience

Warm and friendly staff set the tone for our visit. We were in the area for a family party and were staying with two children so booked interconnecting rooms. Parking is a bit tricky but that is to be expected in an old town, the reception staff could not have been more helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable and bar... More
