This hotel is in the centre of St Albans. The one night inclusive of breakfast price was good value. The reception and bar staff were very helpful and the wifi worked well. The breakfast selection was fine and we could have ordered some particular dishes had we wanted - the food was fine and the coffee was hot. The room... More

Stayed here for a friends wedding and was very disappointed. On the plus side the reception staff were exceptionally helpful, it has a central location and free car parking, although this was located some distance from the hotel. On the minus side, our room had a curtain hook hanging off and the bed was hard. A row in the corridoor... More

Stayed here for a friends wedding, great location right opposite cathedral and town centre so walking distance to central St Albans. Very friendly staff, good breakfast buffet, easy check in and free parking. Only downside was that the room on the ground floor was a bit dark as it faced onto a wall.

Stayed here this week for one night and was pleasantly surprised how great it was for a small hotel. I usually avoid small boutique hotels after years of disappointments and went back to the big chains staying in central London. Reception check-in was quick and efficient, rooms modern and clean, good powerful shower and a nice breakfast that would put... More

I only stayed for one night and did not have breakfast. Check in was quick and friendly. My room was on the second floor. It was a good size and well equipped. Thankfully the room had a fan as there was no air conditioning and it was a very hot Saturday. However, the corridor was extremely hot. The bed was... More

Good hotel, with the only drawback that the room did not have air conditioning. However, the room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was excellent and the location could not be better for visiting St Albans, the cathedral and Verulamium.

We stayed for three nights in August. We found the location good, as we could pop out the door and walk to everything we wanted to see in St Albans. This hotel was built by Sam Ryder of Ryder cup fame, so may be of interest to golf fans. Parking in St Albans is difficult, but the hotel has parking... More

but we arrived late and didn't do more than sleep, shower and leave! Parking is quite tricky but if you call them you will get succint directions and the helpful receptionist even came out to meet us from our car! I always try to find hotels that aren't owned by large corporations and I'm rarely disappointed.

We stayed for three nights, using this as a base to go to the Warner bros studio tour and for a day in London as well as some local sightseeing. Location great for evenings out at the end of a busy day. Walk to train station is about 20 mins and the drive to Warner bros is less than 30... More
